I take your point and understand your position, but there is another thread of data in the mix that makes the "rebel mistake" theory a bit more complicated. The flight path for the MH17 flight is usually much further south and at a higher altitude than ended up being the case for this particular flight. This information makes me believe Kiev was in on it. The remaining question is whether it was a matter of Kiev sending the plane into harms way, knowing that the rebels had a BUK and an itchy trigger finger, or whether they sent it to where they had planted their own BUK close to rebel territory and felt confident they could pin it on them. The other wild card is the eyewitness reports about jets escorting the plane before it went down and whether the jets were an "insurance policy" that served to make the rebels believe it was a high value target or made sure that the plane went down, even if the ground fire failed to get the job done.

The acquisition radar component (several variants have differing capabilities) allows the system to identify, track and target selected targets.
Does that mean you could be completly retarded and still know whoam you target?
The command component is intended to discern "friendly" military aircraft from foes (IFF), prioritize multiple targets, and pass radar targeting information to the missile launchers.
The missile launcher component can carry a variety of missiles (as listed below) and may be able to engage more than one target simultaneously.
The logistics component carries additional (reload) missiles and provides other supplies and parts for the system and the operators.
Alternatively, the command component may be able to remotely detonate the missile
