by the way –
I see no newspaper, no TV, no medium that after today’s publication of the MH17-investigation report rationally and logically draws this conclusion:
„Now is the first time we have heavy and extremely stable proof thanks to the gigantic work of an officiall international commission which exposes cristall clearly the existence and impact of Russian weapons (a BUK rocket) in eastern Ukraine, because there are 290 dead innocent passengers of a civil aircraft, shot down by Putins soldiers masked as “seperatists” in East Ukraine.”
What does that tell us?
A former President of the Swiss Parliament once told me: „Journalists are sheep-heads ….“
He wanted to express I think, the majority of journalists are in the wake of the political mainstream.
The impact of Putins monstrosity and crime is also based widely on the inability for too many western people to imagine the dimensions of monstrosity and the impact of Putins acts.
We should learn first of all to stretch our ability to imagine Putins monstrosity – and we should self-reflect our cringingness towards our own political personal and their hot air and endless sensless mantras in our western capitals.
And I know there are journalists who work hard and are sufficiently resistant to politics and power, thinking and act independently.
They are great exceptions. I owe them a lot.
