    There was only a handful of Americans on that flight.

    From some of the airline geek places I go to:

    Flight MH17
    777-300

    Video (can't be 100% sure if legit)

    Conspiracy Theorists (CTs) are having a field day with this. I think I'll just refer to this particular airline as Conspiracy Airlines from now on...
    There's no greater irony than a Trump supporter pointing out hypocrisy; Unless it's Trump himself.

    The "rebels" have shot down near a dozen military aircraft, this is civilian. If they shot it down, it was sure to be an accident. Shooting down a civilian airliner wouldn't advance their cause one bit, and just as was the case in Syria and president Assad, it would make it more difficult for Russia to support them.

    Considering the Russian separatists don't have planes, I'd say probably none.

    I can't imagine why we do. It's not like he's an actual leader that is able to meet the demands of being a national leader. He's a joke, not a leader.

The US is not pure in this arena either, as we shot down an Iranian airliner in 1988.

    Iran Air Flight 655 - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
    If it were to be determined that Ukraine shot down the plane, they will get the benefit of the doubt that the US did regarding the Iranian airline shot down. If its determined that the Russian separatists did it, it will be intentional. That's how these things work.

    And too has motive to bend the truth. Gladiator makes a great point in post 275.
