I also wouldn't be surprised if the CIA really shot the jet down, or were somehow involved with both sides.
Reading the news from the US, Ukrainian, Russia, BBC, Israel, and China I can't help but think there is something deeper going on. They all are saying about the same thing, though assigning blame according to their own national propaganda.
If public opinion becomes strong enough and national hate is built to sufficient levels in both countries war is going to happen, and millions will die.
Please people don't get sucked into to the nationalist propaganda!
Hugh, it seems to me the aim an excuse to play with explosives.
