What if the number is actually 286, it's a perfectly natural number and would apply if there is 286 bodies...if there were 287 bodies, would you expect the count to simply skip over 286 to get to 287?
I expect this is what they did, nothing magical or extraordinary, they took a day or two and just counted the corpses.
When and if more information comes to light, we'll probably be privy to the answers to those questions.
Why do you ask questions i couldn't possibly know?
While i'm at it, perhaps you could tell me the colour of the wall to my right?
Women's bodies have become part of the terrain of conflict, according to a new report by Amnesty International.
Rape and sexual abuse are not just a by-product of war but are used as a deliberate military strategy, it says.
The opportunistic rape and pillage of previous centuries has been replaced in modern conflict by rape used as an orchestrated combat tool.
From the systematic rape of women in Bosnia, to an estimated 200,000 women raped during the battle for Bangladeshi independence in 1971, to Japanese rapes during the 1937 occupation of Nanking - the past century offers too many examples.
So what motivates armed forces, whether state-backed troops or irregular militia, to attack civilian women and children?
Gita Sahgal, of Amnesty International, told the BBC News website it was a mistake to think such assaults were primarily about the age-old "spoils of war", or sexual gratification.
Rape is often used in ethnic conflicts as a way for attackers to perpetuate their social control and redraw ethnic boundaries, she said.
Why would i have those answers if this is true?
It is true that MH17 was brought down over Ukraine and 100's of people died, but where are the facts of how, who and why it was brought down?
We don't have them...we have our theories, we have everyone blaming everyone else and at the end of it we have nothing more than speculation, 100's of dead bodies and an airliner sized pile of scrap metal.
The point made was that you claim i should have all the answers before i even ask the questions, i'm pointing out that other than the physical evidence of MH17 itself, we have no answers to the questions that crash raises, so we have plenty of questions..and not plenty of answers...exactly the opposite of what you claim we should have if it really happened...MH17 really happened, that isn't in dispute, the lack of answers and the need for questions is.
Again, i am referring to your comments, used several times now, that IF this massacre had in fact happened, we ought to have all of the answers and know almost every aspect of the what's, who's and why's all the way down to and including who did the count, when did they count, were the bodies loaded onto trains or put into body bags or boxes, and all of the other intricate details you seems to think we'd categorically know by now.
I know MH17 was brought down, i know there is a physical crash site and i know many people were murdered...yet we don't know the important answers, like we do not yet have the answers you mention, that you seem to think we ought to already have if the massacre happened.
