A "Remember the Maine" incident could be arranged in several forms:
We could blow up a drone (unmanned) vessel anywhere in the Eastern Ukraine. We could arrange to cause such incident in the vicinity of Donesk as a spectacular result of Russian attack from the air or land, or both.
The presence of pro-Russian separatists merely investigating the wreckage could be fairly compelling evidence that the plane was taken under attack.
The nearness to Donesk would add credibility especially to those people that might have heard the blast or have seen the fire.
The US could follow with an air/sea rescue operation to "evacuate" remaining remains of the non-existant crew.
Casualty lists in US newspapers would cause a helpful wave of national indignation.
Exploding a few plastic bombs in carefully chosen spots, the arrest of pro-Russian agents and the release of prepared documents substantiating Russian involvement also would be helpful in projecting the idea of an irresponsible government.
Use of SU-25 type aircraft by Kiev mercenaries could provide additional provocation. Harassment of civil air, attacks on surface shipping and destruction of US military drone aircraft by MIG type planes would be useful as complementary actions. An F-86 properly painted would convince air passengers that they saw a Russian BUK, especially if the pilot of the transport were to announce such fact. The primary drawback to this suggestion appears to be the security risk inherent in obtaining or modifying a launching system. However, exact copies of the BUK are currently part of the inventory of the Kiev Criminals..
It is possible to create an incident which will demonstrate convincingly that a Russian Separatist BUK has attacked and shot down a civil airliner enroute from Western Europe to Malaysia,,India or the Philipines. The destination would be chosen only to cause the flight plan route to cross Eastern Ukraine.
An aircraft acquired by Mossad or another Third Country would be painted and numbered as an exact duplicate for a civil registered aircraft belonging to a CIA proprietary organization in the Miami area. At a designated time the duplicate would be subsituted for the actual civil aircraft and would be loaded with the selected passengers, all boarded under carefully prepared aliases. The actual registered aircraft would be converted to a drone.
Take off times of the drone aircraft and the actual aircraft will be scheduled to allow a rendezvous East of Belin. From the rendezvous point the passenger-carrying aircraft will descend to minimum altitude and go directly into an auxiliary field at Rammstein AFB where arrangements will have been made to evacuate the passengers and return the aircraft to its original status.
The drone aircraft meanwhile will continue to fly the filed flight plan. When over Free Ukraine, the drone will being transmitting on the international distress frequency a "MAY DAY" message stating he is under attack by Separatist Anti-Aircraft Fire. The transmission will be interrupted by the destruction of aircraft which will be triggered by radio signal.
This will allow OSCE observers in the conflict zone to tell the US and world community what has happened to the aircraft instead of the US trying to "sell" the incident.
The final statement broadcast on-air in New York City in the pre-9/11 era was
"The Prime Minister of Malaysia must be eliminated".
Release prints for mainstream Hollywood films are generally EXPENSIVE - the main cost of distribution and exhibition of feature film is primarily the PHYSICAL FILM STOCK upon which copies of the film are printed, and sent to exhibitors, in order to open on thousands of screens symltaneously on the same day, at the same time on opening weekend.
For example, in the United States, it is not unusual for each one to cost around $1,500 to print and ship to theaters around the country.
The cost of a release print is determined primarily by its length in feet, the type of print stock used and the number of prints being struck in a given run.
Laser subtitling release prints of foreign language films adds significantly to the cost per print.
Due to fear of piracy, distributors try to ensure that prints are returned and destroyed after the movie's theatrical run is complete.
However, small numbers of release prints do end up in the hands of private collectors, usually entering this market via projectionists, who simply retain their prints at the end of the run and do not return them. A significant number of films have been preserved this way, with the prints eventually being donated to film archives and preservation masters printed from them. The polyester film base is often recycled.
EKs (showprints) are even more expensive as they are almost completely made by hand and to much higher quality standards.
Perhaps only five EKs will be made of a widely distributed feature, although perhaps thousands of conventional release prints may be made.
They are intended primarily for first-run and Academy-consideration theatrical runs in Los Angeles and New York City.
This accounts for two of the typically five produced. Two EKs are usually reserved for the film's producer. The remaining EK is usually archived by the film's distributor."
I quote The Enemy again: "In the United States, since the movie was released on September 28, 2001 (barely 2 weeks after the September 11, 2001 attacks on the World Trade Center), Stiller made the executive decision to digitally remove any backgrounds that originally contained the Twin Towers in the background skyline.
Stiller defended his decision to erase images of New York's World Trade Center Towers from the film, saying he did what he thought was appropriate at the time."
How is this possible...?
"A WALL OF TEARS has shielded the Grand 9/11 Hoax from public derision" - Simon Shack
"A top pro-Russia rebel commander in eastern Ukraine has given a bizarre version of events surrounding the Malaysian jetliner crash — suggesting many of the victims may have died days before the plane took off.
The pro-rebel website Russkaya Vesna on Friday quoted Igor Girkin as saying he was told by people at the crash site that “a significant number of the bodies weren’t fresh,” adding that he was told they were drained of blood and reeked of decomposition."
"The Separatists could only got that capability from Russia, and so the culpable party is Vladamir Putin."
Hang on - don't you believe in "al-Qaeda"...? Maybe the Syrians sold them one. Don't Chechens have loads of stolen Russian equipment which they often sell to the highest bidder..?
Also, the BUK system is a standard Soviet era design, made in Russia, sold to the Ukraine and part of the inventory of both armies - the Ukrainian Army later that day then claimed that they had recently lost one, but this turned out to be a complete lie (as usual).
So, McCain is just lying.
"The suspect is former Supervisor Dan White."
"Mr McCain fought in Vietnam. I think that he has enough blood of peaceful citizens on his hands. It must be impossible for him to live without these disgusting scenes anymore. Mr McCain was captured and they kept him not just in prison, but in a pit for several years, anyone would go nuts."
Response to John McCain's tweet: "Dear Vlad, The Arab Spring is coming to a neighbourhood near you."

This NEVER HAPPENS.
But it's far more realistic and convincing in the movies, so people believe it.
During this aviation disaster, almost everything possible that can happen, and can go wrong with a plane whilst in flight can go wrong, and does go wrong, all at once and within the space of around 8 minutes.
This is likes opening your front door to find two Black Swans humping on your front porch. If you live in rural Mexico.
This NEVER HAPPENS.
The plane, and the crew, absolutely everything goes wrong with, and the pilot captaining the plane does absolutely everything right and in good order to save the plane.
The passengers also perfectly remember and comply with all of the procedures detailed in the on-board safety lecture. Which would never happen.
Ukrainian Military Shootdown (?) of Siberia Airlines Flight 1812 - October 4th 2001 from Spike EP on Vimeo.
Toronto comments, December 4 2001 : "Israeli biological and nuclear scientists are being knocked off one by one and this covert war is going unnoticed. A plane carrying scientists to Russia's biological warfare center at Novosibirsk was blown up over the Black Sea and no one questions that the Ukrainian missile that supposedly did the job was a hundred miles out of range. Then a Swissair Corsair crashes killing the head of Ichilov Hospital's Hematology department, as well as directors of the Hebrew University School Of Medicine and the Tel Aviv Public Health Department and not a word of suspicion is raised. After that, one of the country's most prominent nuclear scientists, Baruch Zinger is assassinated and still, no one is putting the pieces together. Your front line against nuclear and biological attacks is being picked off in a covert murder campaign and your government is taking no security precautions to stop the intellectual slaughter. Or if it is, your public is totally unaware of the daily danger to its most educated citizens."
Ukraine admits it shot down Russian airliner
By Ben Aris in Moscow
12:01AM BST 13 Oct 2001
Ukraine finally admitted yesterday that its military shot down a Russian airliner that crashed into the Black Sea last week, killing all 78 passengers and crew.
Evhen Marchuk, the chairman of Ukraine's security council, conceded that the plane had probably been brought down by "an accidental hit from an S-200 rocket fired during exercises".
Russian investigators believe a missile exploded near the plane, spraying it with shrapnel. Russian and Israeli scientists found metal pellets in the victims and in the fuselage.
Vladimir Rushailo, the chairman of Russia's security council, said: "The investigation has found that the disaster resulted from a strike by a warhead from an anti-aircraft missile."
Although both Russia and Ukraine were almost certainly aware of the cause from the start, it took eight days for Ukraine to accept responsibility.
Last year four people were killed when a Ukrainian rocket hit a block of flats.
"Two months after 9/11, American Airlines Flight 587 -- an Airbus 300-600 -- left John F. Kennedy International Airport en route to the Dominican Republic. Less than three minutes after takeoff, the aircraft crashed in a blazing inferno in the heart of a Queens neighborhood. All 265 people aboard perished. According to the NTSB, the tail fin and rudder of the plane sheared off as it accelerated. This was the second deadliest crash in U.S. history, but it also "was the first example where we had an in-flight failure of a major structural component of an aircraft that in fact was made of composite materials," said National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) Chairwoman Marion Blakey.
In the case of American Airlines Flight 587, federal officials seemed interested in avoiding the question of terrorism, and so they released detailed information about the cockpit voice recorder within less than 36 hours. (Philadelphia Daily News, November 15, 2001) While this crash also remains very suspicious, and exhibits some technical parallels to Egyptair 890, it appears impossible to come to a definite conclusion at this time as to what causes were involved." - Tarpley
In The Maltese Double-Cross, Abolhassan Bani-Sadr, former Prime Minister of Iran, discusses the idea that Iran took revenge for the shootdown by the USS Vincennes of Iran Air Flight 655 in July 1988 by authorising the downing of Pan-Am Flight 103 over Lockerbie.
In the second half of 1988, it was well-known and common knowledge that the government of the Islamic Republic of Iran had raised and made available a $1 million bounty for any person or group who could bring down a US passenger jet - a fact exploited to the full by Oliver North, George HW Bush and The Secret Team, using Mossad front-group, the People's Front for the Liberation of Palestine (General Command) (PFLP-GC), under the command of Ahmed Jabril, proxy of General Ariel Sharron and North's partners in the Heroin trade in the Bekkar Valley as a conduit through which to smuggle aboard the bomb.
"8. It is possible to create an incident which will demonstrate convincingly that a Cuban aircraft has attacked and shot down a chartered civil airliner enroute from the United States to Jamaica, Guatemala, Panama or Venezuela. The destination would be chosen only to cause the flight plan route to cross Cuba. The passengers could be a group of college students off on a holiday or any grouping of persons with a common interest to support chartering a non-scheduled flight.
a. An aircraft at Eglin AFB would be painted and numbered as an exact duplicate for a civil registered aircraft belonging to a CIA proprietary organization in the Miami area. At a designated time the duplicate would be subsituted for the actual civil aircraft and would be loaded with the selected passengers, all boarded under carefully prepared aliases. The actual registered aircraft would be converted to a drone.
b. Take off times of the drone aircraft and the actual aircraft will be scheduled to allow a rendezvous south of Florida. From the rendezvous point the passenger-carrying aircraft will descend to minimum altitude and go directly into an auxiliary field at Eglin AFB where arrangements will have been made to evacuate the passengers and return the aircraft to its original status. The drone aircraft meanwhile will continue to fly the filed flight plan. When over Cuba the drone will being transmitting on the inter- national distress frequency a "MAY DAY" message stating he is under attack by Cuban MIG aircraft. The transmission will be interrupted by the destruction of aircraft which will be triggered by radio signal. This will allow IACO radio stations in the Western Hemisphere to tell the US what has happened to the aircraft instead of the US trying to "sell" the incident.
