One Day, Two Crises, POTUS Fundraises

It has been confirmed that a surface to air missile (SAM) brought down Malaysian Flight MH-17. This airline isn't doing very well in their safety numbers lately. It was flying from the Netherlands to Kuala Lumpur in a direct path over the Ukraine-Russian border. This is an area that even the USA had the sense to avoid, much like they should have done in Benghazi, but that's for another time.

The Ukrainian separatist leader, whose name escapes me, is getting his 15 minutes of fame by telling the world to stay away from the crash site, and he has already taken the black boxes from the plane and sent them to Mother Russia. I suspect the Dutch, USA and other nations of the world who have lost citizens on that flight will eventually get their way and be allowed to the site.

A recording was released, just now as I write this, that suggests Russia was behind the missile take down of the plane. The Russian agents (from GSU, I believe they're called) seemed surprised that the plane was a civilian airliner and they imply that they wanted to shoot down another cargo plane as they did on Monday.

Putin is not pleased about this because now he looks like the terrorist he really is.

On another front, in a different part of the world, Israel has put ground troops into Gaza and blew the crap out of a mine that Hamas terrorists were making their way into in order to kill Israelis in a local kibbutz. They had to suddenly stop in their tracks because they were blown away by a superior Israeli military force.

I've read recently how the response by Israel was "disproportionate" to Hamas' initial attack on them. Now that's funny. If a guy punches you in the face and you know he would continue to beat on you, would you hit him back just once to keep the fight "proportionate?" If so, you would deserve to get the crap beat out of you. The truth is, people who believe Israel should not hit back so hard are those idiots who hate Israel because they hate the "kinds of people" who live there. You know the kind I'm talking about--the Jews.

I don't know how long this war is going to last but I hope Israel destroys Hamas to the point that they are no longer a viable terrorist organization. The Hamas charter is very clear--they want to kill all the Jews in the world. Territory has nothing to do with it. The Koran speaks to it and the Hadith give examples of it. "Good" Muslims are bad people and they know this.

Anyway, while both of these events were taking place, President Barack Obama went to New York City to fund raise. He spoke for 40 seconds about the airliner that was shot down in Ukraine, and joked about Jack Lew's handwriting and other amusing topics. 

Jen Psaki tweeted just as sensitively.
