    Just saw the news, very shocking. It's actually quite difficult to shoot down a commercial airliner; would need quite a large SAM with enough fuel to reach that altitude. Apparently the separatists have obtained the black box and sent it to Russia. Wow, now we will never know. Russia's track record with investigating planes downed with missiles hasn't been all that great historically. Just sayin.

    This is not just MAS or Malaysia problem but an international problem. If it is shot down, those responsible must be taken to task by the world. Whoever support them are enemy to the world. Every second, there are planes flying everywhere, how could we allow such thing to happen?

    Shooting down a plane above 10,000 m is not something any ordinary guy or organization is capable of doing.

    It is even more difficult to make an airliner disappear. Maybe the Russians think that if the Americans can bring down one MH without repercussions, so can they. We need the referee to give 2 red cards.
