    If it was Russian separatists then yes, there will be calls for Putin to do something. Of course he won't and a few days later the calls will die down and all this will be relegated to minor trivia.

    The whole concept of accountability is totally 20th century....it's ancient history. This is the 21st century and accountability on both the personal and state level is done....internationally it's done.

    I doubt the separatists did this. What motive could they have? Even if they thought it was a Ukrainian military plane, why would they try and antagonize the Ukrainian army further? Plus, I doubt Putin would be willing to give them such high grade vehicles, especially anti-air.

    If you go on FlightRadar24, you will see that the entire eastern Ukraine is empty, flights re-routed. I'd post a pic, but it is on my Android (I have the paid version with all the airline logos and tracking stuff).

    There are no American airliners around there, none of our airlines are usually on that route, the ultra long haul stuff goes due north, then down over Siberia etc.

    Trigger happy morons could be the answer. Considering that the separatists are fractured big time, then well.

    Plus, I doubt Putin would be willing to give them such high grade vehicles, especially anti-air.
    He does not have to provide them with weapons, since they looted tons of them from Ukrainian military, something that many dont understand. When the separatists started to rise in the East, the Ukrainian military and police were deserting left and right and the military bases and weapons holds were taken over by the separatists. They among other things control at least on AA battery, so it could very well be a Ukrainian missile used by the separatists.

    That is why the Ukrainians are claiming it is the separatists and NOT the Russians.
