CONFIRMED, THE RUSSKIES DID IT: here's why stupid people should avoid using Twitter (update 2)
Photo confirmation, courtesy of Fark:
Translation: the Russky agents in the Donbas bragging back in June about seizing a Buk anti-aircraft system from the Ukrainians. The Buk is capable of shooting down an airliner at altitude.
Translation: the Russky agents in the Donbas bragging about shooting down a military transport near Progress mine, around the time that the Malaysian airliner was shot down.
Moral of the story: don't post on Twitter or Vkontakte when you're drunk or stupid. This includes Russians.
Case closed, last one out please turn off the light.
UPDATE: but wait there's more!
You really must have a tiny dick to have to brag about the materiel you captured. Most armies keep that stuff secret. Here's a good reason why today.
Because they realize they dun goofed.
UPDATE 2: The Guardian on the Buks, because no other news agency is covering this angle yet, being stupid.
