Speaking of foresight. I still blame the Ukrainian radical nationals for the entire conflict that is happening. They thought it was a good idea to overthrow the legitimate, even if corrupt, government (which out of desperation was ready for any compromise), leading to the loss of Ukrainian Crimea, leading to the eastern Ukrainian civil war, leading to nearly 300 dead civilian passengers. These self-righteous ###### are sitting in the parliament now running business, and all this with moral support from the "wise" Western parties, who shift all the blame on Russia (which has its share in the blame). It's like watching moles with scissor-hands fencing.
Which leads to the conclusion that fascism knows only one way, down into the Abyss. Another historical lesson we still haven't learnt.
And the West are ######ing idiots, too.
Wow... Do you blame the Jews for being Jews during the Holocaust as well? I mean hell, they were Jews, right? Good God man, that's like blaming the Democratic Egyptians, Libyans or the FSA in Syria for waging Revolutions/Civil Wars against overtly oppressive and masochistic regimes, and at the same time blaming them for doing so. Your above is the dumbest ######in' line of diatribe I've read on the Internet in very, very long time.
Those responsible are those that tagged, pinged, Ident'd, and fired the SAM. As are those that supplied and funded them. There's no grey areas here, no political overtones. Just a bunch of dead civilians. Perhaps if it was Aeroflot and or your family members you might feel a bit different.
