Currently, I am leaning strongly in the opinion that the Rebels shot down MH17. Why?
- Because they have already shot down Ukraine aircraft in the area.
- They are rebels, and as such are not as disciplined a force.
- They have gained weapons through capture and have also been supplied weapons from Russia. This has been documented.
- The rebels have no air capability to speak of, especially in regards to the size of a Boing 777. So it make absolutely no sense for the Ukrainians to down a aircraft that was close to leaving their airspace anyways.
- The captured messages between the rebels, indicate that some one screwed up.
Any one with a ounce of common sense would realize that if this was to played out as a false flag op (PSYOP) would realize how bad it could backfire.
I think that this is nothing more than a case of a trigger happy rebel with tragic consequences.
It has been threatened and To me these are all chess moves in a large game the US is not playing.
ha...ha...ha...cannot count to five. I love when people attack typos or spelleing....
ICAO says “it is always the responsibility” of member states to issue warnings or airspace and ceiling restrictions “based on what they consider to be potential threats to civilian air services in the airspace under their sovereign control”, says a spokesman. “ICAO does issue these warnings under extraordinary circumstances, for instance where States may not be able to due to command and control breakdowns, or possibly where a State does not have good diplomatic relations with the States who need to receive the safety advisory and it asks ICAO to do contact these adjacent States on its behalf.”
The route over Ukrainian airspace where the incident occurred “is commonly used for Europe to Asia flights,” says Malaysia Airlines. “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.”
