Was the shooting down of Malaysian Airline MH17 justified?

Asked by: Politicallion
  • I believe so

    The pilot was flying above a crisis zone, The Ukrainian people mistook the passenger aircraft to be from it's antagonists which is why they shot it down. The Malaysian Airlines should employ more trust-worthy and efficient pilots. They claim that they flew over it anyway because it proved to be a cheaper route. I expostulate against such misery, by doing so they put the lives of 295 passengers under stake and got them killed.

  • If you fly over a warzone and get shot down...

    Well, who should be surprised by that.

    You roll the dice every time you fly over. Flight MH17 was unlucky. It was in the wrong place and with the wrong people at the wrong time. It's a terrible thing, but it's not unwarranted.

    It's easy to sit back and say "It's not justified!" blah blah blah, if you are in a serious crisis like those men and woman, you are apt to do things you would only do in a crisis. All these morons saying "It's all Putins fault!" lack perspective.

    America has armed so many evil, evil, groups of people it isn't even worth my time to list them all. Operation Cyclone anybody?

  • Hear me out

    Killing that many people is not justified morally but this opinion poll is vague anyway. I do not understand why the hell they were flying over a hotzone in a commercial airline. From the standpoint of the Russian separatists, this could have been an Ukrainian war plane. Unless you were personally there, it is hard to say what these peoples motives were. Malaysian Airlines seems to have a problem understanding where and where not to fly. It's not like no one knew this region has recently become militarized, yet they flew over it anyway. Obviously the end result was awful, but more of the blame should go on the airline than the separatists.

  • The guy over there...

    Is making me lose faith in civilization. Oh yes, it's ok to shoot down planes. It isn't even ok to kill in general. These "Ukrainian People" politicallion refers to were separatist rebels. They didn't think the plane was comprised of antagonists. The radio feed proves that they thought it was a cargo plane.

  • This other person is an idiot

    It wasn't Ukraine that shot the plane down it was, poorly trained, Russian aided rebels that shot down the plane. Then Russia turns around to tries to use stupid theories like the dutch actually had all dead people already on the plane and blew up the plane with an explosive on the plane to try to demonize Russia. While flying in an area where military planes are being shot down, it's still not acceptable to be shooting at every plane that enters the airspace and hoping it's not a civilian one.

  • Shooting down civilian aircraft - or military ones provided they pose no threat - is unacceptable

    Firstly, we know that it was shot down over the Russian-backed terrorist-controlled territory, we know Ukraine does not have the capabilities to reach that far into it, we know the terrorists boasted about taking down a "Ukrainian military cargo plane" near Torrez, which posts were later withdrawn, and we know Russia has been trying to obfuscate the investigation. Secondly, the military aggression of Russia against Ukraine itself was not justified. Any action its shills are taking thus isn't either, especially as horrendous as this. The paid Russians in the left column are trying too hard.
