Fox News is now reporting that the Malaysian airliner was shot down by a Russian SAM. Now... I'm not holding this to be the real truth, as stated above... we may NEVER learn that. But if this is true, then we still don't know who did it. It was also reported that there was a Russian An-26 in the same vicinity. Could the Ukrainians have used the SA-17 with the intent to bring down the Russian An-26, and hit the Malaysian Boeing 777 by mistake? Or was it some terrorist who pulled off this stunt and brought down the Malaysian jet... on the anniversary of the Pan-Am 747 tragedy over Lockerbie, Scotland?
Still... 295 innocent souls never knew what hit them, what a terrible, tragic waste. They all need our thoughts and prayers now.
