    Sure! Deny all the evidence, like the UN meeting to discuss deploying Nato troops to remove the bodies, like the Ukrainian government disrupting the investigation with its 'self-organised' militas (are you actually reading the news?).

    I'm not going to reply to you anymore as you don't understand the situation enough, which is why you've completely dismissed my posts and responded with one line 'blah blah who needs evidence' posts everytime.

    I am rambling because civilians are being killed, and entire nations being victimised before we have facts, because of idiots like you who fail to exercise basic critical thought.
    Ummm, why would the UN do that given that they have no jurisdiction over NATO? Surely the UN would use their own peacekeepers and other organisations to do that...

    The UN Security Council is expected to adopt an Australia-backed resolution demanding pro-Russian separatists grant unrestricted access to the crash site to international experts when it meets at 1900 GMT.

    Which means it will be followed by the required procedure to exercise force... Have you been listening to the Dutch and Australian governments? They want Nato.

    That's not what you said, you said that, somehow, the UN were planning to command NATO. Also, given you are criticising the other person for not "reading the news" you're slightly behind in that an hour or two back the Malaysian PM made a statement that they had made an agreement with the leader of the separatists allowing full access to the scene fro international investigators.

    ... pedantic concern with language

    I know that the Malaysian PM has made a statement, if you bothered to look at the article linked the Dutch specialists were already at the scene removing bodies that they were supposingly denied access to. Obama was even out of sync in a speech he gave.

    Well Russia has a veto on the security council, and as has already been pointed out the UN has no authority over NATO, if a motion was passed to intervene in Ukraine then they would have to assemble a force of UN peacekeepers. Russia may allow a resolution to pass demanding the separatists give unrestricted access but there is 0 chance of them allowing UN troops to go in and exercise force.

    Yawn. You are rambling with nonsense because you don't know what you are talking about.

    No one is looking for a pretext to invade Crimea. Such a suggestion is moronic.

    OCSE are reporting today that the wreckage has been tampered with since they last saw it.
    Images now appearing showing blast and shrapnel damage. One of the images shows a piece of wreckage superimposed onto an image of a complete aircraft illustrating its original location.

    The shrapnel damage and entry points can clearly be seen. This is consistent with the missile exploding directly beneath and to the port side of the airframe.

    The detonation of the warhead would cause the front homing head and guidance electronics section to shear away from the missile, which would then continue forwards under its own inertia. The larger perforation just beneath the port side cockpit window (captains side) is consistent with the correct size of SA11 forebody impacting the airframe at that point.

    Other pieces of wreckage with damage consistent with shrapnel ingress are shown.

    Note the perforation holes peel inward towards the cabin and wing space (yellow paint is the inside part of the starboard wing). The spread of shrapnel damage is consistent with that of a fragmentation warhead of the type carried by earlier versions (9M38M1) of the SA11 missile.

    This is also consistent with the images of a Buk launcher loaded onto a flatbed and driven towards the Russian border shortly after the incident. The wings of a missile on the launcher can clearly be seen.

    This is important because the early versions of the missile have a front to back wing length significantly longer than newer upgrades. The newer missiles incorporate the continuous rod type fragmentation warhead which would cause a very different damage pattern to the ones photographed.

    This may also suggest the missile came from older stock possibly captured by the rebels from Ukraine, or that the Russians supplied older expendable kit.

    I wouldn't trust Putin as far as I could throw him. People are constantly throwing around unlikely (albeit possible) theories, but sometimes the truth is the most obvious possibility. The rebels were trigger happy and had momentum from blasting Ukrainian jets out of the sky, and they wanted more prestige. They did it using Russian weapons and training. Then Russia attempted and are still attempting to cover it up.

    The rebels used Ukrainian weaponry to do it.

    I can't find any sources that say that, it may be true for all I know. There are so many different angles on the issue. It doesn't explain why Russians were trying to sneak the remaining BUK launchers in Ukraine back over the border into Russia.

    I know RT posted it but its UNEDITED by them and i could have gotten it from the state departments youtube but its like an hour long.
    Her responses are interesting, she doesnt really answer anything.
    This does shed some light on the US position.
    If they have evidence then why don't they post it?
    I honestly don't trust the USA or Britain since their lie about WMD in Iraq

    It was nice to hear the BBC emphasise that the "prime minister" in eastern Ukraine is unelected when talking about him and negotiating access. Suppose that's a lot like the PM in Kiev, except he is sponsored by the West and so the fact that he is unelected is completely irrelevant.

    OK. What exactly would you like them to post?

    The only point of contention is whether there is an Su-25. I don't think the Russians are even trying to argue that an SA-11 was not fired. They are simply staying silent on the issue.

    The point is that they are making claims backed up by social media which is not a credible source and doesn't prove anything.
    Do you see how silly that sounds? The United States Government, leaders of the free world, have evidence based off of a YouTube video.
    If they do have independent sound evidence ,which they claim that they do, then why not share it with the world, what have they got to hide?
    The USA has Satellites which they claim were orbiting around that area and they state that they have satellite imagery... why not share it? Russia has shared its satellite imagery with the world.

    dude the BBC... seriously?
    The "Whitehall sources" stated in this article is actually the Kiev government which is not impartial in this conflict.
    We honestly don't know anything yet and you are jumping to conclusions and calling people stupid. So far its ONLY speculation.

    Read the article before posting hardly relevant links, the BBC article refers to movement of body and debris.
