One would think with the amount of money / people Putin has put into his propaganda machine that he could hire a few people o make sue they don't trip over their own propaganda.
As for your last comment I am assuming you got the link I sent you?

I find it funny how many people claim that Russia has made no claims as to who is responsible for the downing of MH17. Wasn't it Putin himself that said regardless of the outcomes of the investigation Ukraine was responsible because the tragedy occurred on their land?
I have never said it was an Ukrainian Su- 25 for sure and Russia never said officially it was a Su-25. Some Russian media have brought the Su-25 up as a possible theory, and because there are some who think Russian media is written by The Kremlin, they assume everything coming from Russian media is written by The Kremlin.
I`m saying it relativity easy to modify an Su-25 so it can use and R-27 missile with just an IR module (the missile is modular and can be only IR) and Ukrainians are able to do those modifications without a doubt.
Doesn`t anyone finds it hugely contradicting that the article tries to make the impression that MH17 couldn`t have been brought down by a fighter jet because there weren`t any flights the 17th July, yet at the same time they try to make the suggestion there were several tanks blown up by jet fighters and the BUK crew was under big pressure to stop that from happening again?
Also is it strange that the article goes and tries to make it look like so explicitly that an jet fighter couldn`t have brought it down, while the Ukrainian SBU, Dutch investigators, Harry Horlings (earlier) and the old head of the Dutch Military Intelligence Security Service (without a doubt was his answer) all are claiming it could have happened by AAM.
The have laser targeting or else they can`t even target other fighters, which they can.
And why is there damage to top side of MH17 while BUK M1 missile explodes from down side up ?
According to the article a BUK system is way to difficult to operate by "ordinary" Separatists, this was also confirmed by the Ukrainian BUK instructor to be seen in the vid at 17:23 min, so why would the Russians have supplied that to them?

You wrote "[Russians] are so eager to believe whatever they are told and they don't question it."
Obviously you know this. How do you know this? If you start to tell me about what you've seen on the television, I will actually LOL.

I agree with you. And, no, of course. But what does that have to do with the comment "[Russians] are so eager to believe whatever they are told and they don't question it."?
