Default Malaysia Airlines flight MH17 shot down over Ukraine

http://news.sky.com/story/1302864/ma...h-295-on-board


Not a good year for Malaysia Airlines passengers

Prayers going out for the murder victims and their families. Whichever side did this needs a serious dose of carpet bombing.

So far Ukraine ministry states it was shot down by the seperatists, at 33k feet. If it was shot by a ground to air missile, no way this 777 was "mistaken" for a military aircraft.

Carpet Bombing? Because that would fix everything. This could have been computer error by the BUK. This could have been human error by a tense operator.

But hey, lets just drop bombs all over an area, taking out more civilians than military personnel.

I can tell you one thing...We, (United States) should stay the F out of it. But I'm sure the Obamas staff is moving chess pieces around as I type.

I would hope that the technology for identifying military vs civilian planes has improved somewhat since 1988.

I get the feeling this was a statement.

Question: Could this have possibly happened to MH370?

no worries, all obama ever does these days is bloviate and send kerry here there and everywhere to do nothing but blather.

Obama's policies improved global Tranquility. What joke/denial coming out of this White House.

I'm predicting this gets moved to the Debate section in 3...2...1...

RIP to those on board and prayers/thoughts go out to the families grieving.

Ukraine says they don't have long-range missile systems in the area and that the missile was fired by the Russian military.

'rebels' saying they can't shoot a plane out of the sky that high.
u.s. talking heads say it would require radar guidance or was shot air to air from a plane.
