A statement from the Foreign Ministry in Kiev said the plane had been "shot down" over Ukraine airspace by a surface-to-air missile.
"According to the General Staff of Ukrainian Armed Forces, the airplane was shot down by the Russian Buk missile system as the liner was flying at an altitude of 10,000 meters [33,000 feet]," the statement added. "Ukraine has no long-range air defense missile systems in this area. The plane was shot down, because the Russian air defense systems was affording protection to Russian mercenaries and terrorists in this area. Ukraine will present the evidence of Russian military involvement into the Boeing crash."...
The amazing thing is that God was still glorified in my friends death. When the media covered the story they looked up his Facebook page which was full of Christian quotes and Bible verses. They referred to him as a devout Christian man and even friends that were interviewed were able to say on the news how he had everlasting life because of his Christian faith. That makes me happy because he truly was a God fearing young man!
One of our good friends was on that flight. It is devastating! a kick in the guts. I saw him Only a month again and he was so excited about this trip of his! But he was a Christian and the amazing thingis that we have a hope. A hope in eternal life and seeing our dear loved ones again.
Death,emotionally speaking is a time and numbers game,hundreds of thousands or millions can die over a period of time and its a dry statistic....a factoid,a few or even one can die at the right time and it can trigger riots or another world war....why do i say this,because emotions are what drives the news cycle and the powers that be know this.....the masses feel way more than they think.
America was attacked on 911 killing 3,000,we responded by sending another 4,000 + to die in a pointless war plus gave up our constitution and bill of rights,then tell our poor soldiers and their families it was all for America.
Most everything shown on the nightly propaganda report is designed to make you goo ooooh or aaahh or pluck your heart strings in some way and abandon any rational thought,it is no longer "news" in the traditional sense but a calculated emotional assault to prepare the emotionally controlled and driven for the next wave.

Yes, we need to understand better the doctrine of total depravity, and that all have a sinful nature which dominates them. All men are capable of all things. The new birth can release men from the dominion of sin and give them peace in the inner man. It is only the gospel message that can accomplish a change in the man's heart, and that, by the Holy Ghost sent down from heaven, as the Lord Jesus seeks and saves that which is lost.
But until he returns, we can expect sadness and more sadness as men prove themselves to be madmen, under the rule of the devil, and faulty in mind due to sin.
But as one Welshman wrote in his hymn...
Great is the gospel of our glorious God Where mercy met the anger of God's wrath A penalty was paid and pardon bought And sinners lost at last to him were brought
Oh let the praises of my heart be thine For Christ has died that I may call him mine That I may sing with those who dwell above Adoring, praising, Jesus King of Love
The missile that doomed the flight was funded by our government and the plane was shot down for covert reasons known only to the CIA, but most believe it was to divert attention away from the diabolical Jewish operations within the Gaza strip attacking the innocent Hamas, who never would harm a fly but only are true humanitarians
seems there are some in NATO that want WWIII. meanwhile putin is doing well with his brics agreements, the IMF is being challenged (and our leader taking photos at a local hamburger joint). but rest assured, west, that our banking oligarchs are sure and solid....
Sadly there were 2 football supporters on the plane from my area travelling to New Zealand to watch their idols NUFC play a friendly game, one nicknamed âthe undertakerâ who never expected to be ushered into eternity on that flight.
Reading the report it is amazing that a steward changed flights at the last minute so he could work on Flight MH17 and therefore lost his life, whilst his wife had swapped off the doomed and missing Flight MH370 and her life was therefore spared.
A British couple got it right as they providentially escaped: âThere must have been somebody watching over usâ: British family cheated death on MH17 by being bumped off flight when they arrived at check-inâ
If God is indeed watching over us and keeps the earth spinning in the heavens, can a meteorite fall from the sky and land on my head just by chance? Were those on the plane unlucky and those who were providentialy spared at the very last minute just very lucky indeed?
