    Jesus Christ, that's horrible and scary. I've been telling Mr. Shinola for months how worried I am about the Russia / Ukraine situation and that we could expect it to start spilling way out of the region, but this is worse than I imagined.

    WTF? Is that a legit clip that aired? Or just someone screwing around and pretending they called in? If it was real,..I bet that guy will be in some deep shit!!! Total bullshit making a mockery of the situation. Sickening.

    So far 154 Dutch citizens confirmed to have been on that flight. Flags will fly at half mast tomorrow across the nation. My sympathies to the Dutch and the other 8 nationalities aboard the plane.

    HWBL - so sorry. What a fricking tragedy. It sounds like everything was humming along until the missle hit. I hope everyone died immediately and had no knowledge of anything. Saw a photo earlier of bodies strewn on the grounds, the site still smoking and on fire. So it's the pro-Russian insurgents, the Ukrainian military or the Russian military - they're the only one who had access to STA's.

    I suspect it was Captain Janks calling in, based on this other clip:

    Yeah, we're hoping none of our Dutch friends are (indirectly) affected by this tragedy. It's summer vacation season over here so there were many on that plane on their way to their summer holiday destination. From the footage I saw of the hit, the plane was pretty much intact after the hit which makes me wonder if those poor people were still conscious when the plane started to drop.

    Like TWA 800 - where it's claimed that the nose blew off but the fuselage continued to climb until it "realized" that the nose was gone and then plummeted into the ocean. How long did those people have to realize it was their last 5 minutes? Haunting.

    The US is stating it was at 33,000 feet when it was hit by a missile that left a heat signature. That sounds more like Russian hardware in the hands of separatists. Has Putin said anything yet?

    I never understand those people that call in during tragedies. Man, get a life. It sounds like adult men. How sad their little lives must be.

    It's terrifying really and I have no doubt it will be completely mishandled by the US.

    Putin pretty much blames Ukraine
