In a larger sense there is even more reason to suspect the Dutch motives. We must acknowledge that the MH17 investigation and subsequent criminal charges have taken place amidst a massive campaign by the US and NATO to cast Russia in a compromising role with regard to Ukraine's political chaos. In the book Ukraine in the Crosshairs by William Dunkerley I read of how the US State Department distributed fabricated photos to allege Russian military instigation in Ukraine. There is also documentation that photos of an artillery battery being used against the Ukraine military could actually have shown just a collection of grain harvesters.

Obama was quick to advance an anti-Russia story about MH17. And now that the murder charges have been lodged, what is NATO's position? It sounds gleeful. NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg said, "I welcome [the] announcement by the Joint Investigation Team that four suspects will be prosecuted for crimes in relation to the downing of Malaysia Airlines flight MH17 in July 2014. This is an important milestone in the efforts to uncover the full truth and ensure that justice is done for the killing of 298 people from 17 countries."

This is far too important and consequential a matter for that kind of foolishness to be taken seriously. To blame the Russian Federation is nonsensical, period. No sane government would condone or order such barbaric actions as have been alleged. Perhaps the shoot-down was an error made at a much lower level than that of then-president Poroshenko or any senior Ukrainian general. But in any event it is totally unjust to blame the Russian Federation. That's especially true since international standard forensic procedures have totally excluded Russia from providing evidence and to get access to data pertaining to finding out who has done it. My take, it was not Russia.
