Unable to what? The suspense is killing me.

Evidence continues to mount that Russia (Putin) is becoming more directly involved in this internal Ukrainian war, despite their denials. It now very much appears that pro-Russian insurgents were involved with the shooting down of this airliner. A real tragedy that deserves a response.

The recent increase in sanctions by Europe are warranted. The USA should immediately follow with increased economic sanctions as well. It's a good way of dealing with Russia without having a direct military involvement.

Wow, the pro Russian rebels claim that the B777 was shot down by the Ukrainian Air Force.
He must be a real master of propaganda.

In the last week I believe six Ukrainian military planes have been shot down both troop transport and fighters. The last one yesterday an SU 35 was shot down by a air to air missile. Just how did the pro Russian rebels get an air to air missile into the sky to shoot down this supersonic fighter jet?

The advanced missile system which is believed to have brought down the airliner was observed crossing the frontier from Russia to occupied Ukraine yesterday. Interesting huh?

How many Russian or shall we say pro Russian rebel aircraft have been shot down? Zero

Putin seems to be taking hints from the volunteers fighters (military) who engaged in many liberation struggles in the past.

He also seems to be taking a page from Adolf Hitler rational for invading the Sudatenland under the guise of protecting ethnic Germans.

Can any one tell any difference?

Time for the U.S. to take a more active role in this conflict when passenger airliners are shot down.

Probably a terrible accident. You don't bring airliners down with a manpad. Must have been a long range radar guided missile.

Well, what a mess we are making of things these days. I am kind of wondering if Russia gave too much weaponry to people without giving them professionalism and training.

Before Lee Harvey Oswald assassinated Pres. Kennedy he had defected to the Soviet Union and he worked in a factory in Minsk. He returned to the US and killed Pres. Kennedy. He had a KGB minder when he lived in the USSR, someone who kept tabs on him.

After Lee Harvey Oswald assassinated Pres. Kennedy, the KGB minder got called into the Kremlin into a large meeting room of very uneasy and serious top brass. They asked the minder one little question: "Did we ever ask him to spy for us?" The minder said, "No." And everyone gave a huge sigh of relief.

They may be having a meeting like that in the Kremlin right now and the answer may not be quite as nice. "We taught them how to shoot the missiles, but did we teach them how to tell the difference between a civilian airliner and a fighter?"

But Obama's information officer says the world is a more tranquil place since Obama was elected.

America will sleep a little sounder tonight knowing we have a prudent, intelligent man in the WH with an outstanding record of keeping us and the world safer.

Not to mention an extraordinarily successful Sec State: John F. Kerry.

The left already blamed Bush for the Lindbergh deal. Move along.

Thank goodness these things never happened when Ronald Reagan was president and thank goodness the United States military would ever misidentify a civilian plane and shoot it down killing everyone on board...
