I just find it horrible how the remains of the passengers has been treated. It's like adding insult to an already great injury. Hope the Netherlands can finesse something with Russia as looks as though Russia seems to be behind the bombing as well as has been manipulating all of the evidence as well.
Must say however I cannot believe that any passenger plane would choose a route over a terrorist area. How on earth did that happen?
I'm really sorry about all the Dutch who lost their lives. That was a huge number and a fair percentage of the Dutch population, particularly when family and friends are included. A national disaster. Although the separatists are guilty of firing the missiles, I believe some of the blame has to go to the Croatia Government, Malaysia Airlines, IATA and all those who put civilian air planes in the air space just above a war zone. Amazingly bad luck for Malaysian Airlines as there were a few other airlines who were flying through that airspace as well. Think when there is an investigation the international aviation authorities should work on creating tighter control over approval of air space in combat zones. I still can't understand why planes were flying in air space directly above a war zone. Someone surely should take responsibility for that as well.
This Ukraine and Russia conflict is getting out of hand. Other nations are being affected, UN should really step up to resolve this conflict.
I think the blame should be put on Ukraine because they still let airlines fly through their airspace. Malaysia could also be blamed because they didn't heed warnings about flying through a warzone.
Condolences to the Netherlands. They don't deserve the grief they're going through.
I was watching on TV the procession of the 40 caskets being transported to Hilversum yesterday during an official day of mourning, and wow, I've always thought highly of the Netherlands but I take my hat off to them for organizing a public event like this. What a wonderful way to try and compensate for the awful way the victims' remains had been treated just after they had been shot down. I'm sure there must be an international law about how civilian victims need to be treated and what the Croatian separatists had done could be classified as crime against humanity.
