    MH17

    To the families of those lost in MH17 my thoughts are with you.

    I do not wish to go into the who what where as this is not in the spirt of our Forum,

    I simply wish to lets those affected and involved in this terrible event that we are thinking of you at this time. May you find strength and support from those around you and may those lost rest easy.

    Joe.

    Tragic in the extreme. On ya Stingray.
    It takes 43 muscle's to frown and 17 to smile, but only 3 for proper trigger pull.
    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded
    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms

    Seperatists, operating outside the laws of the country they live in, attempting to take it over by force of arms - armed, trained and supported by a foreign country with an interest in taking that country over, deliberately shoot down a civilian aircraft, then loot the bodies of the dead....... you would call them Seventh day Adventists? - terrorist seems to be a well fitting label.

    Imagine the amount of looting avail to those without a lot themselves. Money, jewellery, rings, watches etc. personal effects, phones etc, there's a lot of wealth on a long haul flight. The sadness would be not only the loss of family and friends, but the photos etc lost. It's really a tragic event, so senseless, so uncaring.

    Just be careful believing everything you read in the news.

    The video show this "heartless looter" is actually making a point of showing his anger and sadness at what has happened.

    You realise that RT is short for "Russia Today", right? Not exactly a good source for unbiased news when the finger is currently being pointed at Russia. Be careful of believing everything that you read in the news.

    It's very unlikely that they shot down a passenger plane deliberately. They were boasting all over social media about shooting down a Ukrainian military plane, then started deleting all of their posts as soon as they realised it was Malaysian Airlines. They're not terrorists either, that's a word that is thrown around far too much these days. They're in a war. They thought they were shooting down an enemy plane. Dicks, yes. Terrorists, no.

    It kinda pisses me off that people immediately think everything is a conspiracy these days. Occam's Razor - usually the simplest explanation is correct. Pro-Russian rebels have been fighting against the Ukraine for some time now, and have shot down several Ukrainian planes. The simplest explanation is that they fucked up big time, and used a BUK (supplied and trained by Russia) to shoot down what they thought was another Ukrainian military transport. It makes Russia look terrible, and demolishes most of the international support for the rebels. It's no wonder that Russia are trying to pass the blame onto someone else.

    I don't believe anything without first seeing some proof, so don't worry yourself with my beliefs @Josh
    My post merely pointed out the blatant difference in content between different media outlets. I never said which I thought was true.

    Am I meant to believe the BBC or CNN over RT? They are all puppets run by their parent states and in my opinion none better than the other. I think RT has an interesting fresh perspective on world affairs, maybe not so on this event but different none the less.

    I agree that it is most likely an accidental shooting by the separatists, although I suggest that nothing is as clear cut as it would seem. Apparently according to Russian radar MH17 was 14km out of the international flight corridor at the time it went down, be best to stay in the middle over a warzone eh?

    Be interesting to see what comes of it, whatever the result I doubt it will be the truth, too many vested interests in the area, too much money and too many big cocks all fighting to be the big dog.
