    This is like a scene out of Modern Warfare on PS3. Some third party makes some terrorist actions that draw the USA and the USSR into WWIII.

    This Malaysian Airlines is a joke. How do you *don't* know the nationality of 41 of your passengers???
    How do you don't know how many people are on board? They first reported 295, now 298.
    When I buy an international air ticket in the United States I have to enter my passport number and nationality.

    When I worked for the airlines, we had a big volunteer team that could be called if there ever was a crash (there never was, thankfully). They got extensive training on all aspects of what to do in case of a crash, manning the areas for families, security, etc and crash scene work. I had some friends in the team, they had to watch some truly gruesome crash scene footage as part of the training, all sorts of imaginable horrors, that alone weeded out many volunteers. The amount of body parts in something like this is horrific, I remember reading some accounts from the PSA 727 that crashed in San Diego into a neighborhood after a mid air collision with a Cessna. Unimaginable.

    See for yourself, go to flightradar24.com and look at traffic over that area.
    Actually it's not a normal route. Normal route takes them over the Black Sea. They were "avoiding" weather which put them in that area.

    I think the blame for this one isn't too hard to place. The Separatists have been shooting down planes on a daily basis. Today, they posted that they'd shot down a Ukrainian cargo plane - and then deleted the post once they discovered an airliner had crashed.

    Some States in Australia have children on school holidays. Authorities are encouraging people here to switch off their TV's and keep kids away from Computers and Social Media sites as much as possible because there are some very distressing images floating around. Not something that kids need to be exposed to 24/7.

    It's obviously a very big news story here.
