Good God, y'all.

In this region, only Russia has the capability to shoot down a plane at 30,000 feet, and only Russia-backed rebels a) could get access to these kind of Buk missiles and b) are dumb enough to use them to shoot down a commercial jet. If Russia doesn't use its influence to end these hostilities immediately, there should be consequences for Russia in the world community
