    The invasion of Ukraine wasn't an accident.

    Shooting down a civilian airliner is HUGELY damaging to the Russian and Russian separatists cause, other than an accident, this makes no sense.

    Wrong, EVERY party involved will be manipulative, Russia is no better and no worse.

    Uh, we've started plenty in the ME, and, we've supported militant Islamic groups for decades.

    No, that wasn't, it was a response to the hostile overthrow of the Ukrainian government, the resulting instability, and Russia's determination to secure both their assets and people's there. But the accident I was referring to was the shooting down of this plane.

    Then why would Ukraine be targetting any planes?

    Well, I don't know that they would for any other reason than to have this blamed on the separatists. Not saying that that's what happened, just offering it up as possibility along with everybody else that's offering up possible scenarios.
