    Are we headed to another cold war ?

    Sounds as if they shot down a cargo plane 2 days ago. Now are a suspected in shooting down a passenger plane with 295 people on it. Kinda scary what's going on over there. You know we won't be able to stay out of this if it's found that they shot this plane down.

            Now they're saying that Russia is reporting shooting down a Ukrainian plane at the same time this plane went down.

              For the second time in a week Ukraine has fired artillery rounds into Russia.
              On Wednesday a border crossing at Kuibyshoveo was hit by two artillery shells, according to the chief press officer in the Southern Customs Department.
              “The personnel of the customs house were evacuated at 7.50 am Moscow time after blasts of shells fired from the Ukrainian customs checkpoint Marinovka. Shells exploded outside a border checkpoint in Russia. No one was hurt in the incident,” Rayan Farukshin told the Russian news agency ITAR-TASS.
              The border station at Novoshakhtinsk, a mining town in the Russian Oblast of Rostov, was evacuated after gunfire was reported at the Ukrainian border crossing in Dolzhansky.
              Shootings and evacuations at Russian border stations have increased over the last few days. On Monday Russia’s Donetsk checkpoint in the Rostov Region was closed following a shooting on at the adjoining Ukrainian Izvarino customs station border station, according to RIA Novosti on Tuesday.
              The Donetsk station was closed after a 120-mm artillery shell hit a house in the Rostov region on Sunday and killed a 47-year old Russian civilian. The Russian Foreign Ministry condemned the shelling and said that the provocation might have “irreversible consequences.”
              No less than seven artillery shells fell on the Russian side of the border on Sunday. In addition to the death of the Russian man, two women were wounded.

                Heading? We've been in a new cold war with Russia for almost a decade now.

                  Russia is also de-mothballing and restarting an intelligence/spy base they once used in Cuba as well, although it think that is in retaliation for increased sanctions levied against them in the last week by the US.

                    wow, just wow on Malaysian Airlines... what a cluster **** of an airline. First they lose a 777 into thin air and now their dumbass pilots fly another 777 right over a war zone and it gets shot down (accidentally by the opposing forces it appears).

                    It could have been the Russians but I suspect they aren't that stupid. It was probably a freaked out, undertrained moronic Ukranian bubble gum officer who pushed the button.

                      Why the hell is a passenger jet flying over war airspace where planes have been targeted lately?

                            Both tragic and stupid.

                            The FAA had warned airlines not to fly over Crimea for obvious reasons.

                            The plane was flying at over 30,000 feet so it had to be a longer range AA missile, rather than a shoulder fired.
