All 71 people on board a passenger plane have died after it crashed in the outskirts of Moscow just minutes after taking off from the capital´s airport. The Antonov An-148, which was operated by Saratov Airlines, came down near the village of Argunovo, 50 miles south east of the capital, on Sunday, Russian news agency Interfax said. There were 65 passengers and 6 crew members on the plane which was heading for the city of Orsk in the Urals. Witnesses reportedly said they saw a burning plane falling from the sky and wreckage was spread over a large area. A source told Interfax: ´The

Could this have something to do with the shooting down of an Israeli jet by the Syrians? I ask because, regarding that story, there is this: "Russia expressed "serious concern" over the Israeli air strikes and called for all sides to show restraint."

https://tinyurl.com/yaqhxyxy

First, why would Russian comment about something that involved Syria and Israel if they didn´t have a vested interest of some kind? Was it one of their planes?

Call me a conspiracist but everyone knows that Israel never lets an attack go unpunished. Sooner or later, Israel gets justice.

Israel does not take down passenger jets filled with innocents, peroid. Full stop.

I wouldn´t get on an old Soviet Antonov plane for all the tea in China.

Russia remains silent (or claim weather, the flu, etc.) about motives when they want to cover something up. They would not cover up Israel targeting civilians.

It´s either Chechens or Russian engineering.

#3, exactly. If the Israelis are involved, only the bad guys will suffer.

BTW, the Antonov AN-148 is pretty new; it entered service in 2007. It is a high-wing two-engine jet that holds 85 passengers. Reports say witnesses saw fire burning the aircraft while airborne, but eyewitnesses aren´t always reliable.

Have they thought about checking to see if there was an empty fuel tank that might have exploded as a result of a static electric spark igniting the built up fumes? I´ve heard that can happen. Especially in cases where a country´s leader doesn´t want to be embarrassed.

Aircraft do not come apart in midair and rain down in flaming pieces due to errors or ommissions of the drunks maintaining the planes. The have engine failures, or perhaps electronics failures which cause problems, and emergency landing attempts which may fail.

But - falling out of the clouds immediately after takeoff in flaming pieces is a barometric triggered bomb. Hit the triggering altitude, and BOOM.

I spent 10 years flying around Russia, Ukraine and other former soviet states, and flew lots of old soviet junk airliners. Not much fun, some times, but was never in danger, AFAIK. Certainly higher crash rate than US airlines.

U.S. President Donald Trump on Wednesday vowed to take steps to improve background checks for gun buyers in the wake of last week’s deadly shooting at a Florida high school, Reuters reported. “It’s not going to be talk like it has been in the past,” Trump said in a meeting about school safety that included six students from Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, where 17 students and educators were slain by gunman Nikolas Cruz, who was armed with an AR-15 semiautomatic assault rifle. Survivors of that shooting poured into the Florida state capital, Tallahassee, to demand that lawmakers restrict

BRUSSELS is gearing up for a bitter trade war with US and has pledged to fight fire with fire if Washington carries out its threat to introduce import barriers to steel and aluminium products from Europe. European Union trade officials have warned such a move would result in counter-tarrifs being slapped on exports from the US within days. They said iconic US products ranging from Harley-Davidson motorcycles to Jack Daniels whiskey would be targeted in any retaliatory strikes and that preparations for such a confrontation were in full swing.

WASHINGTON - A federal judge on Tuesday denied a request by AT&T Inc (T.N) to compel the U.S. Justice Department to disclose any records of communications between the White House and government lawyers that detail President Donald Trump’s views on the company’s proposed $85 billion merger with Time Warner Inc (TWX.N). The Justice Department on Friday moved to prevent AT&T from arguing that politics played a role in the government’s decision to stop the merger, which Trump has publicly criticized. Share prices for AT&T and Time Warner were steady on the news, both down slightly for the day. “We respect the judge’s

Mr Duncan Smith said the UK would look at EU regulation to see whether it should be changed post-Brexit.

A British couple kidnapped and held hostage by suspected terrorists while on holiday in South Africa have been dramatically rescued by counter-terrorism forces. The pair had been snatched while visiting KwaZulu-Natal in the north-east of the country and their family were not even aware they were in danger or indeed missing. Anti-terrorist officers who were monitoring two suspects discovered information linking them to a couple in Cape Town who had not returned as expected on February 15. Fearing their life was in danger, a specialist force was put together to storm the suspected terrorists´ home in Vryheid, a cattle ranching and mining town

Why real Americans don´t care

If I had a say in this, there’d be only two countries taking part in Winter Olympics 2018 – the United States versus Russia. We don’t need the rest. Like it was when we beat them in hockey, 1980. As you can see, there are too many countries around the world…too many, absolutely, around Pyeonchang, which is in South Korea. Was that really the best choice? Never mind. That’s another topic. But I must say this – my Uncle Marv did return (wounded) from the war there; but 33,652 other Americans did not. It’s called “The Forgotten War.” I’ll bet it is not forgotten

An ancient oak tree marking the border between England and Wales has fallen down at the grand age of 1,000. The Buttington Oak was planted as a boundary marker and had stood proudly for centuries. It was planted along Offa´s Dyke - a line of earth that fo llows the border between England and Wales - named after Anglo Saxon king Offa. But images show the historic oak, with a girth of 36 feet, now lying on its side in a field near Welshpool in Powys.

After Netanyahu – then what? He survived the eight inglorious years of Obama – the most anti-Israel president since Jimmy Carter. For that alone, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu deserves a medal…even a cigar. Netanyahu went toe to toe against Obama, and from the fire emerged unscathed. Better yet, during all that time, while Obama schemed behind his back, Netanyahu kept Israel in one piece. Even better, he kept Israel at peace – relatively so considering that Israel faces enemies from within and from all sides. So… why the rejoicing when the leader’s pain hurts the entire nation? But there is no figuring Leftists. We don’t know

Asked in 1972 if he believed in miracles, Billy Graham answered: Yes, Jesus performed some and there are many "miracles around us today, including television and airplanes." Graham was no theologian. Neither was he a prophet. Jesus said "a prophet hath no honor in his own country." Prophets take adversarial stances toward their times, as did the 20th century´s two greatest religious leaders, Martin Luther King and Pope John Paul II. Graham did not. Partly for that reason, his country showered him with honors. So, the subtitle of Grant Wacker´s 2014 book "America´s Pastor: Billy Graham and the Shaping of a Nation"

Former New York Times Executive Editor Jill Abramson served only three years in that role; she was reportedly fired in 2014 for an ill-founded complaint about her compensation and for her "brusque" workplace manner. Her editorial competence was not questioned, however. In the era of #MeToo equalizing the perpetrators of rape with those of inadvertent microaggressions, perhaps no one remains in elite New York media qualified to make such a judgment, anyway. This week, Abramson´s reputation seemingly landed her a 4,000-word New York magazine cover story, which resurrects the sexual harassment complaints against Justice Clarence Thomas:
