    U.S. intelligence assessments suggest it is more likely pro-Russian separatists or the Russians rather than Ukrainian government forces (sic) shot down the plane

    No, of course not, wasn't willing to loose 4,500 in Iraq or 58,000 in Vietnam. This Ukraine problem only needs to become a world war if asshats insist. Better to go watch Tora Tora Tora and fantasise about war and stay away from it in real life.

    It probably wasn't, but it is now.

    Dutch authorities have said that at least six Britons, 154 Dutch and 27 Australians were on board the doomed plane, and it is feared that up to 23 Americans and four French passengers had been killed.

    Re: Report: Malaysia Airlines flight crashes in Ukraine

    KIEV, Ukraine — As news broke of Malaysia Airlines Flight 17 being downed in eastern Ukraine, the separatist’s shadowy commander with a pencil mustache issued a dark warning on social media.

    Through his VK.com account, Russia’s version of Facebook, the self-proclaimed defense minister of the Donetsk People’s Republic, Igor Girkin — who goes by the nom de guerre Igor Strelkov — boasted about shooting down a plane.

    "We did warn you — do not fly in our sky," he wrote.

    Thinking it was a Ukrainian transport plane, Strelkov added that “a plane has just been downed somewhere around Torez, it lays there behind the 'Progress' mine,” referring to the mining town of some 80,000 people.

    “And here is the video proving another 'bird' falling down,” he continued. “The bird went down behind a slagheap, not in a residential district. So no peaceful people were injured,” Strelkov wrote, adding that there is also information about a Ukrainian military plane shot down.

    However, Strelkov deleted the post when he found out it was actually a commercial jetliner carrying 295 innocent people — not a military aircraft.

    Got it from the BBC News Europe live text updates.

    This information about 23 Americans turns out to be premature and likely mistaken.
    The State Department is reporting no American casualties are confirmed, so far.

    From the BBC News Europe live text updates:

    00:55:
    Malaysia Airlines has listed the nationalities on board: 154 Dutch, 43 Malaysians, 27 Australians, 12 Indonesians, 9 Britons, 4 Germans, 4 Belgians, 3 Filipinos, 1 Canadian, and 41 people of unverified nationalities.


    01:02:
    Asked how many US passengers were on board, a US State Department official says: "At this point we do not have any confirmed information about casualties."

    Link here but the feed doesn't stay on for too long.
