Please continue with your thoughts on the demise of MH17 and its hundreds of people killed for nothing.
Malaysia's transport minister, Liow Tiong Lai, said on Friday that MH17 was following "the right route on the right path", as he fielded a barrage of questions from local and foreign reporters as to why the Malaysia Airlines flight passed over a warzone.
The jet was flying from Amsterdam to Kuala Lumpur on Thursday when it was blown apart and fell in a shower of fiery wreckage over the village of Grabovo near the Ukraine-Russia border.
"European airlines also use the same route and traverse the same airspace. In the hours before the incident, a number of other passenger aircraft from different carriers used the same route," Liow told a press conference. He said there had been "no last-minute instructions" given to the pilots to change the route.
Malaysia Airlines said the flight plan had been approved by Eurocontrol, which designates routes in European airspace. "The route over Ukrainian airspace where the incident occurred is commonly used for Europe to Asia flights. A flight from a different carrier was on the same route at the time of the MH17 incident, as were a number of other flights from other carriers in the days and weeks before."

If you were to actually investigate any of the eye witness testimony you would know that the su 25 was seen at a much lower altitude right before the shoot down of MH 17. It was also seen at a higher altitude right after.

Since you refuse to post any evidence, let me.
Your BUK either has these pieces of shrapnell,
The middle piece of sharpnell
Or it has a setup like this, with rods that are attached to one and other and cut the plane in half, concentrated in one line.
Now did rods do this?
Or did one of the three types of shrapnell from the other model do that?
One of the other odd things that I have noticed is the reduction in the ceiling capabilities of the su 25 beginning just before the downing of MH 17. The ceiling capabilities are all over the map. But when such simple information gets so bloody convoluted my spidey senses go into high gear.
