White Hawk Down - UN Helicopter Shot Down In South Sudan

Tyler Durden's picture




 

Time for some more 'humanitarian' airtsrike non-boots-on-the-ground 'advisors'... As AP reports, The U.N. mission in South Sudan says one of its helicopters has crashed, and a U.N. official told The Associated Press that it appears the aircraft was shot down. While not quite Mogadishu (yet), the UN is "deeply concerned" about the crew as the widespread and massive violence between rebels and the national army in South Sudan that has raged since December continues to rage.

 

As AP reports,

The U.N. mission said on Twitter that an Mi-18 cargo helicopter crashed Tuesday near Bentiu, which is hotly contested between the government and rebels.

 

The U.N. said it is deeply concerned about the fate of its crew.

 

A search and rescue team has been sent to the crash site.

 

The U.N. official, who insisted on anonymity because he was not authorized to speak to the press, said contact with the helicopter was lost at about 3:19 p.m. and that it was apparently shot down near Bentiu.

Putin did it! Invade Russia.

Victoria Nuland/Nudelman,   Reichsfuehrer of the Ukraine

(Victoria's note to herself:  I told those idiots to shoot down a plane, not a helicopter. After MH17, the fucking Ukies can't do anything right, MUST LOWER  amount of LSD in my cookies. Also need to fire Porkyschenko, wastes too much time diddling little boys with his Nazi bum buddies)

I think we need to come up with multi-color lines just like we have a multi-color terror alert system.

That way Obama won't have to spend all his non-vacation and non golf days erasing those pesky red lines he's always drawing at the drop of a hat.

In this case we could have a blue line the color of the UN flag and not have to worry about it being erased since we all know the UN is even more incompetent than Obama.

Imagine that. Something more incompetent than Obama.

We have more and more new episodes of "intelligence communities gone wild" day by day.

 

Libya, Syria, Iraq, Mali, Sudan, Ukraine, Afghanistan, Yemen, Pakistan.

 

Sow the wind reap the whirlwind and the bankers and the military contractors / manufacturers count the bodies and the taxpayer dollars.

 

FUCK! THIS!

I remember in college when after a heroic night of drinking and eating a bucket of KFC, I took a huge dump.  My roommate walks in, smells the air, and asks me where is the KFC?   Garbage in, garbage out.

OUTRAGEOUS BULLSHIT

from today's story's link to AP

In December 2012 the U.N. said South Sudan's armed forces shot down a U.N. helicopter, killing all four Russian crew members on board. South Sudan's military spokesman blamed that shoot down on rebel fighters,(my emphasis) 

from stories in google in December 2012

South Sudan Admits Downing UN Helicopter, 4 Killed
    VOA News
South Sudan's army has shot down a United Nations helicopter, killing all four Russian crew members
from the new york times 

South Sudan originally denied that it had shot down the helicopter. Later, a military spokesman said that South Sudan had told the United Nations and aid groups that certain parts of the country’s airspace were problematic because of rebel activity, including the area where the helicopter was shot down.

Every maggot on every roadkill carcass on every dirt road in America knows that South Sudan shot down the UN helicopter in December 2012, except the maggots who write for AP.

AP -- which now officially stands for American Propaganda.
