Russian President Vladimir Putin Thursday blamed the Ukrainian government for the crash of Malaysia Airlines Flight 17, saying the state bears some responsibility for fighting that may have led to the jets apparent downing by a surface-to-air missile.
I would like to point out in this regard, that this tragedy would not have occurred if there was peace in that land, at least, if hostilities had not resumed in the South-East of Ukraine, Putin said. And without question, the state over whose territory this took place, bears responsibility for this awful tragedy.

Soetoro: "I would like to point out in this regard, that his humanitarian crisis would not have occurred if there was compromise in this land and Republicans had not blocked Immigration Reform."
Do you think the Russian guy who posted the video and admission of taking down a plane is still alive?
And that explains why the black boxes from Malaysian Flight MH7 were hustled off to Moscow, correct?
He's probably inside the black box by now.
I remember the Ukrainian military actually shot down a Russian commercial airliner by accident during a missile system test. I think it was in 2003.
Obama has been on the ropes against Putin, completely outclassed. But now Putin has committed an outrageous act, and a severe tacktical blunder, and handed Obama and Ukraine a gift. But Obama will fumble it completely.

The bill for the bullet has already been sent to the family would be my guess.
Guess NBC is not taking opinion posts, eh? /s
2001...it was a Russian flight from Tel Aviv to Novosibirsk.
“that this tragedy would not have occurred if there was peace in that land”
Hey Putin - there would have peace in the land if you hadn’t invaded it.
It ALL goes back to you, Putin.
Interesting in how different the reactions are when the target on the other foot.
I guess it’s all a wash, then. No one mind . . . you heard it on FR.
Vlad wussed out. So much for his manly man image. He just morphed into an Obamaboy.
Expect Putinista’s to show up (though they’ve been quiet lately) blaming Right Sector for this everything - even though Right Sector got a whopping 2% in the latest elections.
Who controls the crash site now?
As far as I’ve seen, the initial spin was that an Ukrainian air force jet did the shooting (that failed), then the spin was an attempted assassination of Vladi himself (that failed miserably), and the latest spin appears to be “hey, it wasn’t us.”
Oh, and I forgot: McCain’s Fault.
Oh well, mostly Jews, truth be told probably a Hasidic suicide bomber.
Beard thick with C4, detonator tooth, the usual.
Nothing at all like peace loving Muzzies during Rammy Damn.
