As the days go by, proof is mounting that Malaysian Airlines flight MH17 was shot down by a surface to air missile..and it's looking more likely by the day that the Russians were behind said missile.
Immediately after the tragedy, Darth Vader himself..in the form of Vladimir Putin denounced the act and blamed the Ukranians. As evidence mounts that it was indeed his own rebel forces...there has been silence from Moscow and the Putin regime.
Sadly..this isn't the first time Russia has been behind the "accidental" downing of a passenger Airline. The last time was back in 1983.
What will the ramifications be this time? Someone suggested yesterday on the news that the global community come together and suspend the landing rights of any Russian based passenger plane. Others have suggested stronger sanctions.
It's hard to believe how far Putin has fallen in the few short months since hosting the Winter Olympics.
