    Killing one person is murder, killing 100,000 is foreign policy

    That being said, this whole fiasco needs to be laid at the feet of Putin and the Russians. It is Putin who is supporting this separatist movement both ideologically and militarily. If he had come out and decried the militant actions of the separatists and insisted that while diplomatic dissent would be supported militant actions would not we may well be looking at a different situation today.
    Just reported: the Pentagon is saying the seperatists don't have the SAM system that downed this aircraft.

    The Russians benefit if people think Ukraine shot it down.

    If the Russian separatists did shoot down that plane they just screwed themselves big time- the whole world (except Russia of course) is gonna go after them. They can say sayonara to their dreams of a reunited Russian homeland.

    Right now I don't see where there's anything that can be done to help the people who died on that plane.

    I guess we could send some flowers.

    We should have already done something. This is a byproduct of the past 6 months of impotence.

    Nobody that matters to the West will believe that a Western recognised and democratic government (and I say that very tongue in cheek) would shoot down a civilian airliner. So no, the reverse doesn't work.

    Which is precisely why the Ukraine wins if it can be blamed on them.
