    What, no image of Putin personally pulling the trigger of the missile launcher? Or riding the missile up towards the airliner while waving a cowboy hat in some sort of reverse Dr. Strangelove maneuver?
    This does not meet our standards of sensationalism, Mr. Holbert. Consider yourself on notice!

    I disagree with you all and agree with the aptness of this toon as there hasn’t been enough discussion on WHY and HOW the separatists shot down the plane, and WHAT went through their minds when they did it, instead of just this drawn out discussion of IF they did it, now muffled by the events in Gaza. How could they have been so inept or evil to shoot down a civilian plane? Did they not have the ability to see the Malaysian airlines symbol? What kind of threat did they think it proposed to them 25 miles from the Russian border, heading toward Russia at 30,000 feet and hundreds of miles an hour? How in the world did this present a military threat that justified shooting a plane from the sky? If the plane was so obviously going to be over Russia in less than a few minutes, why wouldn’t they hold off on shooting as hmmm, maybe it’s a civilian plane or hmmm, maybe the Russians can take care of it as it will be in their airspace any second now. I certainly think these are valid and very interesting questions that need investigation and answering, and the lampooning of the mystery of it all is addressed well in this toon. So, for once, I agree with Holbert. Your criticisms are jumping the gun. hahaha, yeah not funny given the gravity of the situation, but couldn’t help it.

    Holbert could have included the two Ukrainian Sukhoi fighters brought down after the idiotic (accidental or deliberate) shoot down of a civilian aircraft by the “rebels”.

    A work, or race, horse distracted easily by false or misleading guidance, wears “blinders” to limit his focus on the truth and job at hand. Conservative Americans (the vast majority of “media” outlets as well), and yes, some liberals too, wear BLINDFOLDS designed to allow them ONLY to see the distractions and false, rather than focus on the truth of any alternative position.
