Yes, believe it or not, I’m writing about something other than SJW howler monkeys today. I know… I’m as shocked as you are.
A horrible tragedy befell a Russian aircraft today. This is absolutely horrible, and despite any feelings I may have for the current Russian leadership, I feel for the families of the 224 people aboard who died today.
Russian state media reported that many of the 217 passengers were Russians returning from vacation. The passengers were reported to include 17 children. There were seven crew members.
The plane had departed the Red Sea resort of Sharm el-Sheikh, near the southern tip of the Sinai, on a flight to St. Petersburg, Russia. The plane vanished from radar 23 minutes into the flight, at 6:20 a.m. local time.
There have been rumors that Islamic terrorists took credit for the crash, although my initial thought – until more is determined – is that the pig humping scum are merely taking the opportunity to take credit for this tragedy.
(I will also admit there’s a small part of me wonders how long it will take the Russians to characterize this as an act of western provocation and somehow blame us, but that feeling is much overshadowed by compassion and honest sympathy for those who have lost loved ones in this disaster.)
The weather was clear, according to preliminary reports, and the pilot had reported technical difficulties before the plane disappeared.
I can guarantee you one thing, though: if IS or any other frothing fundamentalist Islamic cult is shown to have had any involvement in this tragedy, I will sit back and watch as Putin decimates anyone or anything having to do with the culprit.
And I will cheer him on. Bring on the vodka and popcorn!
