Quite incredibly, another Malaysian Airlines 777 is destroyed, this time over Eastern Ukraine. MH # 17 was en route from Amsterdam to Kuala Lumpur when it was allegedly shot down by a ground to air missile over Ukrainian territory. All 295 people on board are dead as the flight disintegrated at cruising altitude of 32,000 feet/ 10,000 meters.
In the past few days, Russian missiles have shot down a Ukrainian military jet as well as a Ukrainian cargo jet, all flying over the same area. It is known that Russia has supplied weapons to anti-Ukrainian Russian ethnics in eastern Ukraine. All parties have denied involvement in this horrible incident. Yet, someone pressed a button to launch the missile!
The aircraft was emitting a civilian airliner beacon, so there was no mistaking it for an enemy aircraft by any faction. It is obvious, that this was an intentional act and most likely aimed at Malaysian Airlines. Reasons? There are several possibilities.
Russia can use this as an excuse to invade Ukraine in order to bring back “security” to civil aviation, claiming that Ukraine is incapable of protecting its own territory or the lives of civilians. This can also be an intelligence operation to remove whomever/ whatever was on board that aircraft. This could also be a purposeful act to begin aggression against Russia, since all reports right now are pointing a finger at Russian anti-aircraft missiles.
No matter what the final analysis, already all airlines are saying that they will avoid all flight to Ukrainian territory, in effect, cutting off Ukraine from the rest of the world. Malaysia Airlines, already in deep financial trouble from the loss of MH 370 in March, will most likely go out of business immediately. I doubt anyone at this point will feel safe flying on that airline ever again!
Notice also the amount of “7s” in this event. Another 777. Flight # 17. It is July 17. 2014=7.
Interesting also that MH # 370 departed Kuala Lumpur on March 7……which is 37. Same #s as flight #. Today’s event for MH 17 occurred on July 17. No accident…..
