    UKRAINE JET DISASTER:

    - Malaysian plane shot down by buk launcher.
    - 295 dead including 80 children and 23 Americans.
    - World's deadliest aviation incident since 9/11

    A Malaysia Airlines Boeing 777 en route from Amsterdam to Kuala Lumpur with 295 people aboard crashed Thursday in Ukraine near the Russian border after reportedly being hit by a missile, according to an adviser to Ukraine's interior ministry.

    Malaysia Airlines confirmed on its Facebook page that Ukrainian air traffic control lost contact with flight MH17 about 30 miles from the Russian-Ukraine border. The airlines said the plane was carrying 280 passengers and 15 crew members.

    Dozens of bodies are scattered around what is believed to be the wreckage of the jet near the village of Grabovo, a Reuters correspondent reports.

    From what I've heard, a Ukrainian separatist leader essentially admitted to the attack, posting on a Russian equivalent of Facebook "We told you to stop flying over our airspace" then deleting the post.

    From everything I've heard so far (which may not be the complete story), it's not their fault at all. Just that they were the unlucky ones this happened to.

    I'm suddenly reminded of the old Mad satire choking instructions which started out with 1. Find out what victim is choking on. 2. DO NOT order that dish for yourself.
