i have all along asserted that the russian missile that downed the malaysian jet is part of a sophisticated weapons system that demands russian command and control, and russian crews, to acquire a target, aim and arm the missiles, and to fire them.
i was right. i am right now, and will continue to be right. and, now confirmation in a publication of general circulation. please see the schematic/illustration of the process (of command and control, and sequence of launch, and control of the bird after launch) at the bottom of this article in usa today.
the command and control of the missile which downed the malaysian jet was russian; it was a russian bird; the missiles and launcher were manned by russians, and the russians shot the jet down. this is all confirmed by the fact that the russians took all their toys home with them, when they discovered what they had done. (just scroll down for my previous posts.)
putin was raised, educated and nurtured a k.g.b. thug. he remains a k.g.b. thug. and, he has blood on his hands. he is a pig, and a bastard son of a bitch. a murderous asshole. think about it.

p.s. it wasn't "militia," or "partisans." unless by same, you mean russian soldiers who have stripped off their uniforms and taken control of the command and control (to acquire the target, identify the same, and lock the missiles onto it) and of the launcher (to initiate launch sequences, arm the missile, and allied tasks.) what, you think shooting one of these damned things is like throwing a rock? that you just press a button, and away the damned thing goes?
russians had pilots in migs in korea, fighting u.s. pilots. troops and advisers in viet nam. and, troops in the crimea, stirring up resistance to the ukrainian government, and shooting and killing ukrainian soldiers. and, now, missile crews in the ukraine, shooting down malaysian jets.
