    He has his replacement in waiting, Shillery, making the comments.

    MH17: Hillary Clinton says Russian-backed rebels likely shot down plane | World news | theguardian.com

    But Hillary Clinton, the former US secretary of state, was more potent in her statements, saying in a television interview that indications pointed at the Russian-backed side and action was needed to "put [Vladimir] Putin on notice that he has gone too far and we are not going to stand idly by".

    Clinton said in an interview with Charlie Rose on the American PBS network: "The questions I'd be asking is, number one, who could have shot it down? Who had the equipment? It's obviously an anti-aircraft missile. Who could have had the expertise to do that? Because commercial airlines are big targets, but by the time they got over that part of Ukraine they should have been high, so it takes some planning [to target such a plane].

    "And the Ukrainian government has been quick to blame it on terrorists, which is their name for the Russian insurgents. And there does seem to be some growing awareness that it probably had to be Russian insurgents.

    "Now, how we determine that will require some forensics, but then if there is evidence pointing in that direction, the equipment had to have come from Russia. What more the Russians may or may not have done, we don't know.

    "Europeans have to be the ones to take the lead on this. It was a flight from Amsterdam to Kuala Lumpur over European territory. There should be outrage in European capitals."
    Yup - exactly what was wanted. Coerce Europe into a stand off with Russia, which due to Gas, Europe has no appetite for.

    From the look of the debris I'd guess the plane didn't break up in the air and was more or less whole when it hit the ground.
    Those missiles are guided by a thermal optical lens so most likely one of the engines was hit possibly breaking the wing causing the plane to go more or less straight down depending on how much control the pilots still had.
    Most likely everyone was still alive all the way down. It probably took about 2-3 minutes for the plane to hit the ground. Pretty horrible to contemplate.

    The Buk, or SA-11 missile system is not guided by a "thermo optic lens" that flies into engines......

    It is a radar guided missile that detonates with a radar proximity fuse, it doesn't aim for a particular part of it's target. It's 70 kilo warhead creates a ball of flak which just shreds what it hits.

    its current design can be fitted with a combined optical tracking system with a thermal camera and a laser range-finder for passive tracking of the target
    Buk missile system - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    And the BBC quotes an eyewitness saying that the airplane hit the ground, broke in two then caught fire.

    The passive tracking system is for the operators in the ground station, it's not on the missile, it's not a heat seeker.

    The fuselage likely broke up in the air, a big chunk of it may have landed and exploded, but the naked bodies raining down on the nearby village suggest it was well in pieces before it hit the ground.

    BBC news last night showed plane exploding on impact with the ground - most likely was largely intact.

    Can you quote you source for this as that, as far as I know, wasn't mentioned on the BBC news - acknowledging I haven't seen all items?

    Apparently some village reported it was raining people, pretty horrible!

    But a big piece still attached to a wing and fuel tank must have been together to cause the smoking grease spot in published pics.

    Who authorized the shadowing of the Malay plane by the Ukrainian military plane?

    Who has the capability to shoot down the airplane - The Ukrainian military, the Russian military, the mecenaries on both sides, NATO, the israelis and of course the Iranians (according to NATO the Iranians have the capability to fire their missiles world wide).

    Why is their a war going on in the Ukraine at the moment and who is to blame for that?

    Who wins from the success of this operation?

    With all the fighting, air patrols, by all sides, 24hr radar coverage by ground and airborne systems why hasn't anyone come out with their recordings. I admit there may be various versions of this critical information.

    Last night on channel 4 news at 7pm, their flagship news spot, the main presenter was talking live to a Ukrainian minister. He was told the USPOS was live on a US channel and would be commenting on the situation. The presenter told the Ukranian minister that the USPOS was on TV. The channel cut to the live US station to see the USPOS introducing the local celebrities to the audience.

    You could see the channel 4 news presenter shaking his head in disbelief. They cut back to the Ukrainian minister and carried on.

    You wonder why the world ignores the US.

    Sure there will be lots of press speculation and unnamed people, close to the investigation, giving stories.

    Few things seem strange already, witness said, missile went straight up, smoke trail, then bang.
    Why was the system placed under a civil air corridor in the first place.
    Does the tracking radar [ another truck ] only pick up primary radar, not secondary radar, transponders.

    Sure we have eyes, satellite, watching, a hot spot where NATO may have taken action. How long has the missile[s] been there.

    Who gains most from this, US says it was a missile, others probably a missile. Jim

    What does a Malaysian jet being shot down in the Ukraine have to do with the US?

    Further reading does seem to confirm that said but I wouldn't put too much faith in the Daily Star - a notorious rag or was. Not sure of the quality now but still looks rather sensational.

    If you are aware of the catastrophic position of the Ukrainian military in the SE corner of the Ukraine a great deal. But hey no mention of the NATO handlers to stand down, no mention of the reinforcement of the Ukrainian and mercenary armies and air forces and no mention of the government forces to "return to their barracks" a la Libya.

    "Statement by the Press Secretary on Malaysian Airlines Flight 17
    The United States is shocked by the downing of Malaysian Airlines Flight 17, and we offer our deep condolences to all those who lost loved ones on board. We continue to seek information to determine whether there were any American citizens on board.

    It is critical that there be a full, credible, and unimpeded international investigation as quickly as possible.

    We urge all concerned – Russia, the pro-Russian separatists, and Ukraine – to support an immediate cease-fire in order to ensure safe and unfettered access to the crash site for international investigators and in order to facilitate the recovery of remains. "

    This will be the main news story for the next week while taking the attention of another part of the globe.

    Fascinating that with the first crash nobody has a clue what happened... but immediately after this one the US is 100% sure that it was Russian sympathisers using a missile.



    Yeah ok.

    Yeah ok.

    Probably because they have satellites looking at the Ukraine where there is a conflict going on and don't have any looking at Malaysia and the southern pacific where fuck all is going on.

    Why do you guys always go for the most convoluted and complex answers to simple issues?
