Breaking news, it was discovered that the nazi exiles, based on the dark side of the moon, constructed a special laser armed hypersonic, stealthy spaceplane for the Russian airforce special projects division. This aircraft was personally flown by Putin who was responsible for the shootdown. Putin is rumoured to have retreated to his secret volcanic island base and his next plans involved capturing US satellites in orbit.
oh, and he's sitting posing topless and oiled up on the back of a stallion, while an artist paints his picture on canvas.
It's interesting and disconcerting to witness the total lack of response by the EU to this tragedy.
Well I for one haven't become aware of anything from our real masters about this.
I may have been having a little slumber at the time, so I stand corrected if I'm wrong.
I suspect that there are some very large commercial interests which may be tempering a response from the EU.
Rightly or wrong, Germany and France, and their respective larger mulitnational companies, have invested billions in the Russian market.
It would be prudent to await the verdict of an investigation before deciding on more sanctions. I realise that it make take a long time to get to the facts, but if the facts of an investigation show that Russia is responsible for the Mh17 tragedy then it should be easier to agree sanctions from those who have a vested interest.
In the absence of facts from an investigation there is bound to be resistance given the commercial factors involved.
