    If this is the Ukrainian one, shot down. Probably by some trigger happy controller of a SAM.
    We will probably never know who did it, but I am leaning toward the Russian backed folks.

    Normally I do not laugh at gallows humor when a tragic story is still fresh.

    The plane was clearly shot down and I'm willing to bet they'll be able to tell who was responsible.

    It went from the Rapture to Russia?


    What else can we pin on 'em? Eh? Jimmy Hoffa? JFK? The Hindenburg?


    What a tragic comedy...

    other - please explain. I could care less.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    It was shot down, but I don't 100% know if we'll know for sure who was responsible. Perhaps, but it seems that at this point fingers are being pointed all around.

    My educated guess: Shot down by Ukrainian pro-Russian separatists using captured surface to air munitions. Thought it was a cargo plane supplying Ukraine's military and not a civilian passenger Jet from Malaysia.
