“The crash of MH17 was a tragedy. Nobody thinks it was anything other than a horrible mistake,” says the article by Blake Fleetwood. But the US government and media were trying to make use of the obvious tragedy with innocent victims to achieve political goals — tougher trade anti-Russian sanctions, he added.
“The current continued violence against civilians in the Ukraine is completely attributed to the Kiev government,” Fleetwood said. “Western Ukrainians are the ones invading the east, sending troops, fighters jets, unguided Grad rockets and bombers over Eastern Ukraine's populated areas and cities, killing innocent civilians, according to Human Rights Watch.”
Fleetwood blames the Malaysian jet crash on the West and media: “Ukraine is being supported and encouraged by the U.S. policy and the Western media, which have led to the violent war conditions that led to the unfortunate shoot-down of a commercial jetliner with 298 lives lost.”
“Ironically, Putin and the separatists have been calling for an immediate cease fire, talks and negotiations,” goes the article. “The Ukrainian central government has been resisting. It wants to crush the rebels and has killed some 1,200 civilians. Little of this has been much reported in the Western media, which has been fanning the flames for NATO intervention and possible war.”This conflict “developed, of course, because the U.S helped engineer a coup against a democratically elected, albeit, corrupt government after the former elected president rejected a trade pact with the EU and negotiated an economic alliance with Russia. The U.S. helped the Western, pro-EU faction install a puppet regime rule with elections that were boycotted by much of the country”, Fleetwood said.
The key question, the author believes, is how important is Ukraine's regional crisis to the U.S. worldwide geopolitical interests and his answer is “not very”.
“We should look carefully at what is at stake from a global perspective. The U.S. and the West need Russia's cooperation on a number of large-scale macro issues,” Fleetwood said.
