First of all, I really don't think that anyone would go to such extremes as to down and airliner just to be able to check an adversaries satellite technology.
Uh why would the us shoot down a MALAYSIAN airliner to see CHINESE satellite capabilities? I'm positive that hacking them like they do us is far easier than shooting down another countries civilian jet and crossing our fingers that china posts some good google earth pics lol c'mon man...
