^this.

I'm feeling like Russia or the pro-russian separatists were behind this. And I think it was intentional, not a mistake.

Why would Russia shoot down a Malaysian plane?


I don't know what to make of this story.

http://rt.com/news/173672-malaysia-plane-crash-putin/

Malaysian Airlines MH17 plane was travelling almost the same route as Russiaís President Vladimir Putinís jet shortly before the crash that killed 295, Interfax news agency reports citing sources.

Folks let's not make this a debate thread.

This is NOT an opportunity for a bash-Obama thread, let's keep the discussion on this event.

It is sad what happened. I just wonder who will take the blame for this and explain why, they shot down a commercial airliner.

Like Airforce one. The Russian presidential plane carrying an important person Putin or whomever. Would have been flanked by military fighters with advanced incoming missile detection. Not to mention its own on board defense systems. Especially during a time of conflict.

Finally, MH370 turned up. I was wondering where the CIA will use the plane.

Not to mention the fact that it isn't likely Putin would fly over an area of conflict.

Our own country accidentally shot down an Iranian Airlines plane back in the late 1980s......but we admitted it was a mistake (the U.S. Navy cruiser Vincennes mistakenly identified it as an attacking Iranian F-14), and we paid reparations to the families of all those killed on board. A Russian fighter shot down a Korean Air Lines 747 in 1983 over Sakhalin Island and never paid reparations (or, if my memory is correct, never even apologized).

I have to admit, though...those picture-comparisons of Putin's jet and the Malaysian Airlines colors are interesting. That could possibly fool a careless or inexperienced missile-team if they were firing visually.

In 2001 Ukrainian military shot down Russian passenger jet with 89 people on board. Both Russia and US made the same mistakes in the past. It is too soon to say who did what in this situation. Black boxes will tell story or at least part of it.

Funny, your beloved separatists have blocked Ukranian rescuers and police from accessing the site and have sent the black box to Moscow.

I highly doubt we'll ever know what really is on that box.

Can't respect anybody that would be loyal to Russia in this scenario.

What a tragedy and I cannot imagine how this airlines management is coping this year.
