“Its more like not wanting another Ukraine”
The separatists had downs quite a few Ukrainian Air Force planes before the disaster with the airliner. They hit at least one transport, a fighter, a couple helicopters. that was an obvious active air war. How many IAF planes have Hamas taken down? I didn’t hear of any. So are we saying that IAF is “just that good” or that Hamas hasn’t deployed any air defense weapons? The chances that Hamas would take down an airliner are mo more today than any day since Obama gave them all those stingers.
That’s what happens when you get a disaster in one area ... it causes people to be cautious elsewhere.
