Survivors of German victims of Malaysian Airlines flight MH17 downed over Ukraine plan to sue the country and its president for manslaughter by negligence in 298 cases, the lawyer representing them said on Sunday.
Professor of aviation law Elmar Giemulla, who is representing three families of German victims, said that under international law Ukraine should have closed its air space if it could not guarantee the safety of flights.
“Each state is responsible for the security of its air space,” Giemulla said in a statement emailed to Reuters. “If it is not able to do so temporarily, it must close its air space. As that did not happen, Ukraine is liable for the damage.”
“And the light shineth in darkness, and the darkness did not comprehend it.”
One can blame the US for overthrowing Kiev but if people like [Yatsenyuk] & Poroshenko had not accepted, Kiev and all of Ukraine would still be safe. In 2012 the US spewed out propaganda in Moscow but most Russians were not fooled and their country was saved. The acceptance of the US and EU proposals invited Hell to Ukraine and the Church was attacked.
Much like Al Qaeda, the Islamic State (ISIS) is made-in-the-USA, an instrument of terror designed to divide and conquer the oil-rich Middle East and to counter Iran’s growing influence in the region.
The fact that the United States has a long and torrid history of backing terrorist groups will surprise only those who watch the news and ignore history.
The CIA first aligned itself with extremist Islam during the Cold War era. Back then, America saw the world in rather simple terms: on one side, the Soviet Union and Third World nationalism, which America regarded as a Soviet tool; on the other side, Western nations and militant political Islam, which America considered an ally in the struggle against the Soviet Union.
The director of the National Security Agency under Ronald Reagan, General William Odom recently remarked, “by any measure the U.S. has long used terrorism. In 1978-79 the Senate was trying to pass a law against international terrorism – in every version they produced, the lawyers said the U.S. would be in violation.”
Investment strategist John Embry says the market manipulation in physical gold and silver is coming to an end. How close? Embry says, “I think we are very close now in the sense that the physical supplies of both gold and silver are being diminished at a fast clip.
I just saw Indian imports (for gold) were up 176% in the latest month. . . . Basically, all this gold and silver is headed from west to east, and I think this is a very, very disturbing development for people who live in the west. The timing of it remains imprecise. I think because of the take down in the paper market is so aggressive, at this point, that there is something that is going on behind the curtain that suggests to me that things are getting very close to reaching a head.
We won’t know until it happens, but you got to be on the right side of the trade the moment it happens. You can’t be late.” Embry goes on to say, “I have never seen more negative sentiment in the sector at a time when both gold and silver are remarkably underpriced. I think gold and silver are as cheap today as anytime in their histories. This is in relation to the amount of money out there, the cost of credit, the cost of digging it out of the ground and etcetera. Nobody is interested in buying it, and to me, this is one of the great buying opportunities of all time.”
