Surely Obama can lie and make up 'stuff' to at least look like he cares .. whether it was American citizens on that plane or not!

That is what Presidents do!
(Well maybe not the making 'stuff' up or the lying part)

We should declare military intervention in Ukraine based on incomplete intel and make a decision from there. I mean we've done it before.....what could possibly go wrong

Yeah, this is a real major crisis of epic proportions. Obama should rush to the situation room and prepare for all out war because some rebels shot down a Malaysian jetliner.
25 Americans were on that plane and yes Obama should have left his fund raisers to call each family and offer his condolences personally instead of attending fund raisers . If you recall when Pres. Regan was in office the Russians shot the Korean airlines and he immediately went on national tv and handled the situation with authority to find out what happened . Big difference in handling of the situation .

I read the first few pages of posts. Same posters who are wrong about every prediction making more fear based predictions. SMH

It is a tragedy. I am sure who is responsible will be revealed, but these incidents never lead to a war. They usually occur in areas already having an armed conflict.

Reagan responded by sending marines to Lebanon and they occupied the perfect spot to blow up the whole place at once. Which a Lebanese suicide bomber promptly did to the tune of 254 marines killed. Then he promptly pulled all the rest of the marines out and never mentioned it again.

Is that what were looking to do?

There are 47 people whose nationality has not been confirmed either way, according to the latest news report. There is no confirmation that 25 Americans were on that plane much less a list of them that Obama could call.

And that little TV bit with Reagan was 4 days after KAL007 was shot down! Not the same day. Not even the next day. The Soviets themselves were on TV trying to explain what happened before Reagan went on TV. Swing and a miss right winger.

Does Biden know how to put his foot in his mouth or what here ?

Also, no Americans reported so far as to have been on board.
Where's that Ukraine government guy that said 23 Americans died ?

Looks like Biden is "out of the Loop" ...... Team Obama is not admitting that any Americans were killed or on board this flight at this time. The Big O is busy tonight with $32,000 a plate Fund Raisers.
