    Arrogant to the very end with 'spies' comment, what an ass piece.
    If it's genuine it shows what ignorance abounds in these people that they don't even know the airspace above them is still an international route.
    What a scary thought.

    Maybe that's just russian propaganda talk "bombing civilians"? Maybe the separatists are there or something? I don't think they would just bomb them like that, knowing that some part of their civilians are still there. If the target is a confirmed separatist whatever thing then it's a go I guess.

    This thing makes no sense whatsoever anyways. You know you can see what is a frikkin commercial flight from 10 000 meters and then to aim at that and "oyea lets shoot it down". Now only military plane flying that high would be dropping ****ing nukes and higher then that doing recon. Oh hell wars suck anyway ****.

    I dont know man, but ive seen videos of destroyed blocks of flats and Russians and Ukrainians digging out bodies. there is a recent one where they find baby in a rubble and half of the block of flats is destroyed in a small village.

    Scary is that commercial airplane can be shoot down in Europe these days! I hope they will hear some truth about this!

    Unlikely or propaganda. Supposedly a Russian adviser was sitting with the crew on this thing.

    That's the problem though, they consider the entire eastern region as separatists and there are a lot of civilians under attack because of it. I don't doubt their are some in the region but their actions are mortifying.
    I feel like we shouldn't turn this thread political, either way what happened is tragic and I honestly hope the civil war in Ukraine would halt with the people involved with the commercial flights tragedy to be held accountable.

    Well it should have been safe at that kind of altitude, however when you hand bunch of rebels are really sophisticated air defense system capable of pretty much knocking anything out of the sky.

    Apparently, some Ukrainian agents took video of that BUK launcher being driven out of the area on a flatbed...two of the missiles are missing.

    Lots of the bodies were looted I guess....money, jewelry, credit cards, etc.

    I was about to post the same. I also wonder why people have to fly into those countries which are involved in wars etc.

    A representative of the Airline made a statement saying they were one of many airlines which flew over that region on that day. Prior to take off, all airlines check whether an area should be avoided and that area was not on the list, as other airlines also flew over on essentially the same route.

    If the missile was fired a few minutes later, it could have been another passenger airplane doing the same thing.

    Yes, nothing wrong with changing things to fit your propaganda. Interesting that the independent European investigators are saying the rebels are not giving them free access to the site.

    Pretty much every source but Russia implicates the rebels and possibility Russia. Hum. . . .
