if anything were to be modified it's likely the voice recorder which I believe captures radio as well, so if the rebels didn't try to warn them off several times or the plane ID'd itself as a civil aircraft and then the rebels fired anyway :shrug:

telemetry wouldn't be that important to modify because crash reconstruction is gonna show that a missile disabled the plane, causing it to crash

On topic, I thought the first reports were that the Russians snagged the black box and sent it off to Moscow, or was that some bullshit early reporting?

Either it went over the border for some adjustments and then back, but people here are saying tampering isn't that useful. Or some separatist commander figured that's where they should send it and the Russians yelled at him to stop implicating them further.

E: looks like the remains have been loaded on trains and is getting shipped to the Netherlands.

or is is just Netherlands now? I don't want to offend anyone by erroneously calling their country "the" again :ohdear:

You know what. I like this Putin guy:

quote:

"I said, 'Mr. Prime Minister, I'm looking into your eyes, and I don't think you have a soul,'" Biden told the magazine. "He looked back at me, and he smiled, and he said, 'We understand one another.'"

And speaking of Russkies getting things done. The propaganda machine is turning out this kinda stuff.

To be fair though, some of those quotes are from tabloids over there. If we still had Weekly World News, I'm sure other countries would be quoting that stuff too when events happen over here.

"We no longer think in Cold War terms, for several reasons," the vice president told the magazine. "One, no one is our equal. No one is close. Other than being crazy enough to press a button, there is nothing that Putin can do militarily to fundamentally alter American interests."

Kinda surprised Joe knows and says this. It's way too logical a thought process for anyone involved int he current administration

The way he man-handled Palin in the 08 election debate and shutdown Paul Ryan in an almost existential way in the 12, it wouldn't surprise me if he somehow ended up the next Bill Clinton in that he's a capable enough leader that knows how to play a character to make people feel more at ease with him than they probably should be

He might lack tact sometimes but I don't really give a gently caress.

Shortly after he took office he was having meeting with Karzai and brought up corruption, Karzai of course gets all pissy and asks him to name someone who's corrupt. Joe's all "Well you loving brother for starters", that goes around for a little while until Joe has enough and walks out on him.

quote:

Karzai assured Biden and the other senators that there was no corruption at all and that, in any case, it was not his fault.

The senators gaped in astonishment. After 45 minutes, Biden threw down his napkin and stood up.

"This dinner is over," Biden announced, according to one of the people in the room at the time. And the three senators walked out, long before the appointed time.

I really want to believe that he said something along the lines of your quote rather than this piece from the NYT.



In other news: http://www.yumasun.com/news/former-marine-facing-child-molestation-charges/article_80a9d25c-1132-11e4-ba09-001a4bcf6878.html?mode=jqm

quote:

A former Yuma Marine who was later a civilian parachute instructor at Yuma Proving Ground has been charged with three felony offenses for allegedly sexually abusing a 12-year-old female.

According to court records, 54-year-old John Joseph Sixta was arrested by Yuma police July 1 and booked into the Yuma County jail, where he remains on a $1 million bond.

A past battalion sergeant major in the U.S. Marine Corps, Sixta's unit was the basis of the seven-episode HBO miniseries "Generation Kill," in which his character had a recurring role.

Guess he'll be policing up those mustaches somewhere else now.
