    So sorry for all their families. So, so sad.

    Anything about "mistaken identity" yet? (military plane vs commercial)

    I don't believe that the USA would launch WWIII over something like this.

    I doubt that the Russians shot it down. I suspect it was Russian equipment used by the separatists and that somebody thought they had another cargo plane in their sights. To that extent I believe that we will find that the downing was accidental only to the extent that it wasn't realized to be a commercial airliner until too late.

    That being said, this whole fiasco needs to be laid at the feet of Putin and the Russians. It is Putin who is supporting this separatist movement both ideologically and militarily. If he had come out and decried the militant actions of the separatists and insisted that while diplomatic dissent would be supported militant actions would not we may well be looking at a different situation today.

    I imagine there would be quite profound political implications with bigger sanctions and "world condemnation" of the pro-Russia rebels could follow if it turns out they have shot down the plane. Putin will be boxed in a cornor and unable to come out.

    Reuters reports 23 US citizens on board.


    Edit: Apparently all dead

    You would have to trust the French journalist on that.
