Operators of doomed flight are claiming the aircraft was attacked.

The Deputy Chief of Kogalymavia Airways Alexandr Smirnov has stated definitively that the operator of Flight 7K9268 believe the flight was downed by some sort of attack by ruling out mechanical fault and pilot error as the cause of the October 31st disaster that left 224 people dead in the Sinai desert.

“The plane was in excellent condition,” Smirnov told a news conference in Moscow. “We rule out a technical fault and any mistake by the crew,” he said.’He said there had been no emergency call from the pilots to services on the ground during the flight, which took off from the Egyptian Red Sea resort of Sharm el-Sheikh and was bound for the Russian city of St Petersburg.’

The RT story spells the situation out clearly.

“The only possible explanation is a mechanical force acting on the aircraft,” Smirnov said. “There is no combination of system failures that could have broken the plane apart in the air.”

US Detected “Heat Flash” at time the flight was destroyed.

This was the magically missing piece of evidence regarding the MH17 disaster, this was as Robert Parry put it “the dog that did not bark.” If the Eastern Ukraine fighters or anyone from the “other side” had destroyed MH17 there would have been no need for the US government to suppress all their satellite imagery of the incident including, most obviously the launch of whatever rocket or missile destroyed MH17. That alone makes it clear that something is being hidden in that case.

Someone targeted the Metro-Jet Flight 7K9268.

A month to the day after Russia entered the Syrian war in a big way, a Russian Aircraft carrying almost entirely Russian tourists is destroyed in the skies adjoining Israel. What an unhappy ”coincidence”.

It has become clear that someone has targeted the MetroJet Flight 7K9268 that was destroyed in Egypt yesterday leaving all 217 passengers and 7 crew aboard dead.

This statement can be made at this early stage in the investigation because it has become clear that the jet downed in Egypt has split into at least two pieces and there is really no way that the flight breaking up i the air is consistent with an accident.

Not all of the bodies have been recovered yet. The people on the ground are still searching for the dead. In a conventional mechanical failure accident the fuselage lands on the ground in one piece and although there has been at least one air disaster ascribed to a plane disintegrating in mid air, the China Airlines 611 incident of 2002 that left 225 dead, even a freak occurrence such as this would not account for the lack of a distress call from the pilot of the doomed Metro-Jet flight..

The lack of a distress call has been a repeated across several of the recent inexplicable air disasters. The Air Asia 8501 disaster late last year is one that comes to mind immediately. There was never any explanation as to why the pilots never transmitted a distress signal as the plane apparently stalled and fell to the ocean.

Egypt widens search for Russian plane crash victims | News , Middle East | THE DAILY STAR

“EL-HASANA, Egypt: Egyptian rescue teams were looking Sunday for more victims of a Russian passenger plane crash in Sinai, widening the search after finding bodies scattered across eight square kilometers a day after the incident.
A military officer helping with the search told AFP that rescuers had found 163 bodies out of a total of 224 people who were on board the Airbus 321, which crashed after taking off from a Red Sea beach resort.”

That single story, printed in a pro-Western news organ, the Daily Star makes it clear that someone has done this. Mechanical failure will cause the plane to be unable to fly, it will not cause the distribution of the wreckage over a large area as we are seeing in Sinai.

Intent Signals Motive.

Once it is accepted that this was not an accident but an intended attack, then the obvious motive becomes clear.

Either someone is upset over the month-long Russian operation in Syria and they are expressing their displeasure, or someone is trying to frame someone for that..

The message would appear to be that there will now be attacks on Russian interests right across the world and there is nothing Russia can do about it except continue what they are doing in Syria and try to even up at a later date if they can identify the perpetrators.

It is quite unlikely that any ground anti-aircraft system was responsible for the destruction of MetroJet 7K9268, the height of the jet and the topography of the Sinai would make it seemingly impossible to hide a system of the required size in that area.

The prime methods would be appear to be either a remote hijacking, a bomb or an attack from a jet.

At this early stage the remote hijacking seems to be a non-starter as it fails to explain the mid-air destruction of the fuselage. The most likely explanation seems to be either a bomb on board, an air to air attack or something exotic.

Apocalypse in the Conventional Sense.

It is equally becoming clear that whether by accident or design, events are poised to spin out of all control in the near to mid-term future. It seems that an immense deadly war that dwarfs the current small-scale catastrophes is poised to break out.

The forces of darkness and evil cannot and will never accept that they have been usurped and are no longer the masters of the universe.

Russia has too much pride to back down in the face of their threats. The tactics that work against other merely inflame the Russians and add to their determination and animus towards the authors of evil.

Their mindset is calculating and methodical but there is an element of the Howard Beale character from Network, they have had enough and they are not going to take it anymore and this has been their position since the Ukraine coup of late February 2014.

Since February 2014 Russian officials have stated repeatedly that they are willing to fight a major nuclear war with the West if necessary.

The people who made those statements probably naively assumed it would never come to that.

Vladimir Putin says Russia was preparing to use nuclear weapons ‘if necessary’ and blames US for Ukraine crisis The Independent

Yes, Russia is *still* ready for war – even nuclear war | The Vineyard of the Saker

Since that time Russia has made a number of devastating moves, they have humiliated the demonic entities who run and control the West repeatedly. In Crimea, in Eastern Ukraine and now in Syria.

These people believe they have the divine right to rule the world, they were never going to just sit back and take it.

They have met their nemesis and this is only the beginning of the response and many more families will be grieving before this is over.

Good photos here.

The wreckage from this flight seems more like the wreckage from a bomb attack or rocket than the Lockerbie crash or the MH17 crash. The distribution of wreckage seems wider and the destruction of the plane seems greater than either of these known rocket and bomb cases.

224 Die in Sinai Air Disaster.

Incident comes days after a plot to launch false flag attacks in Syria against Russian and US aircraft was revealed.

Crash: Metrojet A321 over Sinai on Oct 31st 2015, disappeared from radar in climb over Sinai

”A Metrojet (former Kogalym Avia, Kolavia) Airbus A321-200, registration EI-ETJ performing flight 7K-9268 from Sharm el Sheikh (Egypt) to St. Petersburg (Russia) with 217 passengers and 7 crew, was climbing through FL307 out of Sharm el Sheikh over the Sinai Peninsula (Position N30.16 E34.17) at 04:12Z when the aircraft disappeared from radar. Wreckage of the aircraft was later located in mountaineous terrain about 20nm south of Al-Arish (Sinai, Egypt).”

An Airbus A 321 operated by the Russian company Kogalymavia, known as  Metro-jet has crashed in Egypt’s Sinai peninsula. All 224 people on board the flight are assumed to have died. There are reports that the jet has been found in the region of southern Arish and is “totally destroyed”. It is interesting that many people are reporting that the plane broke into two pieces. It is also being claimed that the speed of the plane’s descent, at around 6,000 feet per minute is not consistent with even double engine failure. In the case of double engine failure the flight could glide to the ground far more slowlyaviation specialists are claiming.

Russian plane ‘completely destroyed’ in Egypt crash | World news | The Guardian

‘A security officer from the search and rescue team dispatched to the scene said the Russian airline Kogalymavia, known as Metrojet, was “completely destroyed with all on board likely to have died”.

The cause of the crash is not known.It is more than seven months since the last previous major air disaster, the German Wings Flight 9525 incident of March that was blamed ludicrously on a suicidal pilot. .

The Metro-jet flight was scheduled to fly from Sharm el Sheikh to St. Petersburg and disappeared 23 minutes into flight. It is being reported that the flight made a rapid descent for several minutes prior to disappearing.

Sinai.

The Sinai peninsula was the part of Egypt that Israel occupied between 1967 and 1982 when they left the region under the peace deal between Egypt and Israel negotiated under the US Carter administration.

“The Camp David Accords were signed by Egyptian President Anwar El Sadat and Israeli Prime Minister Menachem Begin on 17 September 1978, following twelve days of secret negotiations at Camp David”

The Israelis completed their Sinai departure on April 25th, 1982.

The Sinai region of Northern Egypt is at least in part under the control of fighters who have pledged allegiance to the “Islamic State” leader Baghdadi and operate under the name Wilyat (region) Sinai.

It has long seemed strange that the area of Egypt closest to Israel is where extremist fighters are engaging in a low-level civil war but never land any blows on Israel… ever.

The Fort Russ Syria Plot.

One interesting report that surfaced in recent days was the alleged leak of a conversation during which plans were being made to conduct a series of false flag attacks in Syria in order to promote war between the US and Russia.

Ukrainian Wikileaks: McCain and Saakashvili are plotting to shoot down American plane in Syria to blame Russia [transcript] – Fort Russ

The plot supposedly unveiled by the leak involved a series of events, including the destruction of a Kurdish village on Syria to be blamed on Russian war planes. The shoot down of a Russian aircraft and also a US plane to be somehow blamed on the Russians.

When I came across this on Friday it was filed under the “too good to be true” tag. After the demise of Metrojet 9268 it is hard to see it that way. Now it seems that the plot they stumbled upon centered in the Ukraine and Georgia was only one of several scheduled as the Western elite seek to make their displeasure towards Russia known via the customary “deep message” method.

This is the key excerpt.

“So, the whole group will be in Latakia, in the Al-Nusra zone, the goal is to shoot down American plane. They will get flight information, there is a local Kurd there for that. The plan is turning out very cool! American plane will be shot down by Russian military. This will be told by the Prisoner, that the target was shot down from PZRK. The scene will be amusing, the whole world will talk about it.’

“After this group will go to Hasaka, it is a city near the Kurds and there they will destroy a Kurdish village,  the Russians will do everything. In return, the Kurds will shoot down a Russian plane with Stingers. The goal is to pit the Americans and Russians in Syria. The Turks will be grateful, they promise to rouse the Crimean Tatars.’

This is the supposed ISIL in Sinai claim of responsibility for shooting down the Metro jet flight, almost certainly a lie.

ISIL in Sinai Claim Responsibility?

These claims are never to be accepted at face value and Flight 7k9268 was flying at 31,000 feet when it first experienced a problem. This height is beyond the reach of all manpad anti-aircraft systems and a complete multi-vehicle anti-aircraft system with a radar as well as firing vehicle would be required to strike a plane at that altitude , but it is interesting that someone is claiming responsibility for this in their name.

According to the Hindu Times this is the claim.

“The fighters of the Islamic State were able to down a Russian plane over Sinai province that was carrying over 220 Russian crusaders. They were all killed, thanks be to God,”

Mohamed Ibrahim ‏@Ipress_
#Sinai IS branch claims responsibility for the Russian Plane Crash #KGL9268 #Egypt

The Guardian reported that the Russian and Egyptian Governments believed the claims were not true

“Russia’s transport minister Maksim Sokolov has said that the claim Islamic State militants brought down the plane “can’t be considered accurate”.
Shadi Bushra, reporting for the Guardian in Cairo, has also spoken to Mohamed Samir, Egypt’s army spokesman, who also refuted the claim.
They can put out whatever statements they want but there is no proof at this point that terrorists were responsible for this plane crash.
We will know the true reasons when the civil aviation authority in coordination with Russian authorities completes its investigation.
But the army sees no authenticity to their claims or their video.’

There is zero chance this video is authentic. Even if the highly unlikely ISIL in Sinai claim turns out to be correct, there is almost no chance this is the right plane. The video seems old, modern mobile phones and cameras do not produce images like this and it is also clear that the aircraft in this video is flying far lower than 31, 000 feet.
The reader can decide for themselves.

It is very strange that the bodies of the victims are starting to arrive at the Cairo morgue yet no footage of the crash scene or wreckage has surfaced.

Conclusion.

Other than the fact that Metro-jet 9268 has crashed in the Sinai and those on-board are probably dead, this event remains a mystery and to try to draw even speculative conclusions is foolish at the moment.

The possibility that is deeply worrying at this time is that a US airliner were to meet a similar fate in the near future.

I cannot confirm the authenticity of the Fort Russ leak. It may well be true, or it is possibly an act of psychological warfare but there is one thing that they got right for sure and that is that the plotters want major war between Russia and the USA because without it they lose. In Ukraine and in Syria they lose unless they can initiate a major war.

The tragic demise of Metro-jet 7K9268 will not be enough on its own to accomplish their goals. It is therefore highly likely that whatever the cause of the Metro-jet disaster in Egypt, we will see an increase in desperate attempts to foment major war in the near future.
