    The deaths of so many innocent westerners seldom gets ignored.



    The deaths aren't being ignored, but nothing will be done about this.

    Reuters reports that Russian aid workers are crossing the border, apparently without permission by the Ukrainian government.




    Wonder if those are really aid workers.

    Amazes me how quickly some think we should jump to war, and criticise the president while the story is all of a couple hours old, and nobody has got a clue yet of what happened. Imagine if such hot heads were at the controls.

    Yes, it is. And it would be big big news if all aboard were Malaysian. Such lose of life is always infuriating when we see the innocents caught between the belligerents guns.

    I dont think the US would go to war over something like this but to presume they would ignore the death of Americans citizens without a reaction is a little naive. I could also say the same about the UK, France etc

    I suppose everyone is right that this could have been an accident. But considering the recent fighter jet tango, and that AP news sited anti-air missile launchers recently at the UK-RU border, I'm betting this is the Ruskis. But time will tell.

    I have a good source for airline things, a forum made up of airline employees and enthusiasts all over the world. You have to pay to post, so the crazies don't go there..

    This is awful. Those responsible need to be held accountable.
