.....

Only the October 2002 Bali bombing has claimed more Australian lives, with 88 killed when Jemaah Islamiah bombers targeted the Sari Club in Kuta.

I am sorry for your country’s loss, and the loss of all of the passengers. Our President seems to care less. But we the people care.

Anyone shooting down a passenger airline has committed an act of war. They are subject to extermination like a rabid dog.

Russia is on notice . . .

A tragedy, for certain, but...

It should be obvious that this airline needs to be liquidated. Just a few months ago they lost a plane to a pilot who got sudden jihad syndrome. Now they try and fly a plane through an active war zone. This airline is a killing machine. Would anyone fly this carrier now?

In the US there was a major story some months back concerning the Governor of the State of New Jersey,a major state a portion of which is separated from New York City only by the Hudson River.Long story short...he was accused by the press and the Left of being responsible for the death of a 90 year old woman because of an order he allegedly issued regarding the George Washington Bridge...an iconic bridge that joins a part of New Jersey with New York City.

If Governor Christie is responsible for that death then Barak Obama is surely responsible for these 300 deaths thanks to his secret promise of "flexibility" given to Vlad Putin.

A "tragedy" is an earthquake or a typhoon.This is a *barbaric outrage*.

...It should be obvious that this airline needs to be liquidated.....Now they try and fly a plane through an active war zone.

The evidence suggests that they weren't the only ones flying through that zone.Not by a longshot (no pun intended).

Would anyone fly this carrier now?

I wouldn't.But then,having traveled in that part of the world,I wouldn't have flown it *before* the incidents you've mentioned either.

Australia is America’s friend and therefore Russia’s enemy. KGB Putin has no remorse for the savage murder of America’s friends, they rejoice when Americans and our friends are slaughtered by Russians.
