    So i was watching modern marvels and they mentioned something about a commercial jet or something being shot down and i never heard of it so i took a look on google. First site i see is a 'conspiracy' site so i was wondering if anyone would like to have some fun and see what this is all about. Or maybe stoned can defend the conspiracy theory and not give us sources :wink: lol

    The incident certainly happened. The conspiracy theories take off wrt the reasons why the flight had strayed so far from the designated course.

    Finally some interesting post ! :wink: All the science stuff just gives me headache.
    Yeah ! evil, monsters, commie Russians shot down plane full of people without provocation.
    Of course what they say is just a half the truth, honestly I dont know what to think about it, but it smells of conspiracy. If you would ask me for example about Senator Wellstone plane crash I would say 100 % government operation to liquidate "dangerous" element, but KAL OO7 is very complex case.Interesting thing is that aboard KAL007 was also very high ranking US politician maybe even senator or congressman opposed to US policy at that time. Hmm..

    I have never been inclined to assume that espionage [that we were spying] was involved, but it really wouldn't be so hard to believe. And it is a bit hard to understand how the plane ended up where it did. IIRC, there were several chances for the pilots to see that they were off course, but for one reason or another, they missed all the clues.

    The KAL plane carried nuclear waste. The crew was dying of AIDS, and were promised their families would be well cared for if the mission was completed. The passengers were enemy combatants and political subversives who had been sentenced to death by a secretly convened NSA tribunal. The wind just happened to be blowing toward North Korea that day. They scooped it up, reprocessed and built their nukes from the fallout.

    So your position is that the U.S. government would never spy on the Soviets and then lie about it when it turns into a disaster? :rolleyes:

    just like 9/11 helped neocons in US government wage war at will without any constrains, so did KAL 007 affair helped Reagan administration accelerate massive military builup, thus finnancially destroying Soviet block.

    Why do people always resort to cracking jokes when they dont have the answers?

    Maybe it happened pretty much the way it was reported. The North Koreans have done a decent job of proving they are not trustworthy. I suspect China is nearly as thrilled with their recent behavior as is South Korea.

    I think those jokes ARE the answers for some people lol.

    People make jokes about these things because most of the questions already have answers and the conspiracy theorists don't listen.

    I find it hard to believe that my own government could perpetrate such wide ranging things as UFO cover ups when they couldn't even keep quiet the fact that our last president was having hanky panky with an intern in the White House :rofl:
