    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.
    No it isnt.

    If the Russians shot that plane down there will certainly be consequences.

    A mistake does not need a motive.

    Soviet fighters shot down a US civilian flight to Japan by mistake during the 1980s.

    Really? What kind of consequences and enforced by whom? Obama isn't going to do anything substantive and neither is Merkel. The Europeans and Americans will make tv appearances and wag their fingers but that's going to be the extent of it.

    This isn`t Merkels buisness anymore.

    The plane came from the Netherlands, I am sure there will be alot of Dutch victims.

    And what do you know about Europe and how we react to such things?! Please enlighten me.

    The last time someone intentionaly orderd and executed the murder of civilians, almoust the entire continent bombed their country to dust (Serbia).
