what the hell were they thinking? stupid pilot, stupid airline.

they do not want to waste money flying the long route.. greedy...

saving money and penny pinching is apparently more important to them than the safety and lives of their passengers.

Ethnic Russians have no right to live in Ukraine. They are descended from Soviet colonists that the SOviet regime sent there during the last century. Ukraine belong to the indigenous ethnic Ukrainian race that has been subjugated by Russians even after the Soviet Union dissolved. Viktor Vanukovich, the recently overthrown dictator, was a member of the ethnic Russian minority that ruled the country and refused to allow democracy in Ukraine. They still dream of rebuilding the socialist Soviet Union. The Maidan protests were the indigenous, native people finally throwing off the yoke of Russian rule, similar to the end of white minority rule in South Africa. The ethnic Russians in Ukraine live in Ukraine but do not consider it their country and are more loyal to Russia. They are like the illegal aliens in America who put ethnicity and race first and are more loyal to Mexico than to the USA.

It's especially disgusting that Russia is so anti-Israel over Palestine, because the Soviet Union itself sent ethnic Russians to colonize Ukraine during the Soviet period. The Ukrainians are the native people of Ukraine and the ethnic Russians really have no business being there.

did anybody see the footage on cnn showing a big fire ball erupting in a field with a big black plum of smoke rising?? it was kind of strange that their was no smoke trail from the plane coming down, either they were using some other footage from another plane crash? or something.. its hard to believe that a missile hitting or exploding next to that jet would not ignite it on the way down.. not only that!!! they were showing some footage of the main fuselage wreckage with what looked like a missile right in the center of the video, the missile seemed to me to be to intact to have blow up a plane at 33 thousand feet in the sky and falling to the ground right in the main wreckage site.. the nose cone of the missile was clearly visible.. was cnn using some old footage of another downed plane in the second video also??

oh and by the way they showed both the video footage multiple times

twilight zone..

The oxygen masks dropped down, and the cabins filled with gas.

My understanding is that 53 other commercial aircraft flew over the same airspace on the same day without incident.

Normally the route was farther south. The plane was avoiding bad weather.
