Malaysian Airlines flight 17 has crashed in rebel-held east Ukraine.

As media outlets scramble to figure what happened, or who shot the passenger jet down, conspiracy theorists on the Internet have begun to join the debate. Here’s the top 5 conspiracy theories emerging around MH17.

1. Let’s Start WWIII, Orchestrated by the West

world war 3


The shooting down of Malaysian Airlines 17 was orchestrated by western powers in order to throw more dirt on Russia after Crimea. And while western governments would love for their citiziens to think that the interventions in Russia really boil down to humanitarian issues and national sovereignty, it’s really about money and power.

Redditor nighthawk1961 explained why it’s about money and power in

Russia is the “enemy” because it has (or has control of) vast Natural Gas reserves that the US/Israel/EU want – and don’t want to be made to pay for. Russia is also not part of the debt Banking system (ie ours) and this makes Russia despised. Russia is not co-operating and doing as it is told.
As a result of this, war is desired to force Russia to capitulate. In addition, this Banking system of ours is a hairs width away of total collapse – and it is the fault of the Central Bankers. To divert blame a World War is needed (or some similar insane thing) so the Central Bankers can avoid blame.

Redditor arynx elaborated on how this newest situation involving MH17 might not work out as well as the West might hope:

However, this may backfire. If Russia spins it back to suggest the Kiev military shot it down “assuming it was a self-defense or Russian aircraft”, it could really hurt the western’s attempt at controlling Ukraine. The Kiev military are losing and each time they retaliate it is against civilians and residential areas, making them lose the moral high ground.
Just the other day the Kiev military shelled Donetsk in Russia. Whether intentional or accidental (due to an identically named town on outdated maps), Russia is not happy about it. Soon enough Russia will have more than enough of a reason to intervene in Ukraine.

But since the Ukrainian attacks against Russian citizens aren’t being reported in the main stream media, Russia being pigeon holed as the instigator and bad guy when in fact it’s more gray than that. By instilling the “Good vs. Evil” mentality in the public, people in the west will view themselves as liberators to the oppressed people of Ukraine and want to get involved.

2. Israel Deflects Attention from Gaza Invasion

With heightening tensions in Israel and Palestine, and exceedingly more bad press for Israel on its missile attacks that kill Palestinian children, Israel may be looking for a deflection from media reporting.

What better than a massive tragedy thousands of miles away that includes both the East and the West?

It could potentially even be a way for Israel to finally take over Gaza. In fact, Israel may have even provided the plane.

According to Abel Danger, a non-main stream media site, Israel has had a twin of a Malaysian Boeing 777 in its military hangars in Tel Aviv since November 2013. The site elaborates:

…an identical twin of the missing Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 has been in storage in a hangar at Tel Aviv’s airport since November 2013. This aircraft, a former Malaysia Airlines plane, is actually the only aircraft owned by Florida-based GA Telesis.
GA Telesis only has one plane in its fleet, a Boeing 777 with a registration number N105GT.
GA Telesis give the plane a new registration number [and sent it to] Israel.

Why give the jet a new registration number if it was going to be dismantled?

The plane has mysteriously disappeared from Tel Aviv and Israel seems poised to attack Gaza.

3. Snowden Could Save the Day from WWIII

Edward Snowden Speaks To The Guardian

Cryptome is a:

digital library function[ing] as a repository for information about freedom of speech, cryptography, spying, and surveillance.

Earlier this month, Cryptome cryptically tweeted about how a war would be started in July as divulged in unreleased Snowden documents.

The way to head off the war? Release the damning Snowden documents.

However, some are wondering if Cryptome even has these supposed documents or even what they say.

According to RT:

[Cryptome] has also ducked inquiries about how (or from whom) Cryptome received the document,” and “did not respond directly to questions about what the content of those leaked documents would reveal, other than to say that there may exist some ‘technical documents’ used ‘to combat techniology [sic] of spying well beyond those promoted for “public debate.””

The documents have, obviously, not been released yet.

4. It Was an Assassination Attempt on Vladimir Putin

Russian President Vladimir Putin was reportedly in the air at the same time MH17 was shot down in a nearby airspace.

According to an anonymous source speaking to RT:

“I can say that Putin’s plane and the Malaysian Boeing intersected at the same point and the same echelon. That was close to Warsaw on 330-m echelon at the height of 10,100 meters. The presidential jet was there at 16:21 Moscow time and the Malaysian aircraft – 15:44 Moscow time,” a source told the news agency on condition of anonymity.

“The contours of the aircrafts are similar, linear dimensions are also very similar, as for the coloring, at a quite remote distance they are almost identical”, the source added.

As stated, the president’s plane and the Boeing 777 look very similar.



Could this tragedy be of mistaken identities in an assassination attempt gone awry?

5. The Magic 7

Occult Message in Speech by Christine Lagarde of IMF"7" references: 1:22 – "Now I'm going to test your numerology skills by asking you to think about the magic seven" 1:34 – "Most of you will know that seven is quite a number 2:24 – "2014, you drop the zero, fourteen, two times, seven" 4:08 – "It will mark the 70th anniversary, 70th anniversary,…2014-05-25T06:23:14.000Z

Numerologists, take heed. But most people have an inherent understanding that the number 7 has a lot of meaning throughout all cultures. MH17 is no exception.

As Redditor ISayWhatEvery1Thinks broke down:

Mh17 (one seven) – a 777 has been flying for 17 (one seven) years, was shot down during the 17th (one seven) day of the 7th month of 2014. 2+0+1+4=7
295 “souls on board” (Anderson cooper’s words) 2+9+5=16 then 1+6 =7
A lot of 7s.
Not sure if anyone watched the “number 7” video that was posted last week. Christine Lagarde, the chief of the IMF had some pretty cryptic uses of the number 7.

The video of Christine Lagarde, who is the Managing Director of the International Monetary Fund, ISayWhatEvery1Thinks is referring to can be seen above with subtitles breaking down the numerology that forecasted MH17 as world distraction from the World Currency Reset.

What is a World Currency Reset?

According to

The reset HAS to happen, no doubt about it, but when and how is another story. All of the major currencies of the world will be revalued based on the assets of the country itself. This is supposed to be according to a source, the IMF should be charge, but since details are secret, we don’t really know.

Looking back, the last Global Currency Reset happened between 1944 and 1945, towards the end of World War II.The powers that be decided that a new global world reserve currency was needed, so it became the US Dollar. Previously, the pound sterling (British Pound) was used starting about 1860 or so (the time of the United States Civil War) until around 1914 when the Federal Reserve, a private company, was born.Obviously Britain was devastated by World War II and they were no longer a superpower, so the dollar became the world reserve currency officially after World War II.

So the global value of all money might be reevaluated. Where will you be when it happens?
