The immediate hours after the crash of Malaysia Airlines Flight 17 brought far more questions than answers.

But one thing was clear: The deaths of nearly 300 people will put new pressure on the White House and European leaders to address the conflict in Ukraine and confront Russian President Vladimir Putin.

Russian President Vladimir Putin called for a cease-fire Friday in eastern Ukraine and urged the two sides to hold peace talks as soon as possible. A day earlier, Putin had blamed Ukraine for the crash, saying the government in Kiev was responsible for the unrest in its Russian-speaking eastern regions. But he did not accuse Ukraine of shooting the plane down and did not address the key question of whether Russia gave the rebels such a powerful missile.

As a possible turning point in the confrontation between Russia and the West over Moscow’s ongoing campaign to destabilize Ukraine, it could also spell serious trouble for Vladimir Putin.

Which side really did shoot down the plane? Could the plane have been shot down on purpose by ____ to force ____ to do something about the Ukraine conflict? Or just an accident of war? Or something else? What’s your theory on it all?

    What should Putin do?

    He should drop hints about revealing the truth about the shot down TWA 800. It is such a touchy subject, that they even made Anderson Cooper lie about it.

    The American people don’t give a crap about no airliner. It was in the Ukraine or something and that might as well be Mars. Beside Putin owns the EU. The crazy greens passed a lot of stupid energy bills and now if the Russians turn off the natural gas they all collapse! Self inflected wound and natural selection at work destroying stupid countries run by stupid people.

    To sum it up if Putin wants to rebuild the Russian Empire let him and by the time he starts taking over the EU proper we should be ready to capitulate and bow before our new owners.

    Yeah there was a lot of sarcasm there.
