Malaysia Flight MH 17 Shot out of the Sky
Another tragic result of the many conflicts going on in the world. It should be obvious that nobody yet knows exactly what happened. And yet we have Clinton (Hillary) already spouting her rhetoric as though she has something to say.
In 2001 Ukraine shot down a Russian airliner with 70+ people aboard and vehemently denied any involvement. This was later proved false and they admitted they made a mistake during military exercises.
This is a time to stop, listen, and investigate the facts of what happened.
There are some reports the Ukraine military had active radar tracking of the Malaysian flight. The preliminary evidence indicates it was a BUK (SA-1) crew fired AA missile that downed the plane. The rebels (confirmed by Ukrainian military) say they didn’t have such a system. This is a sophisticated AA multi-targeting system not operational by amateurs.
So, keep your powder dry and wait for the facts, which are non-existent at this time. Who did this is not known, but it may well have been another tragic screw-up by the Ukrainian military…
