^Well put.  We learned, as have other countries I'm sure, the hard way that providing weapons, expect the worse.  Putin, however, has done nothing even remotely showing any kind of personal responsibility, in fact, he seems to think he's untouchable.

As uncomfortable and downright brutal it is, it is sounding more and more like severe sanctions, slamming his bank accounts, are the way to go and, yes, that hurts the EU, but to do nothing and let him keep stomping all over the place is simply unacceptable.  That's how we're seeing it anyway.  There is no doubt in my mind that the rocket that took down MH17 was a Russian weapon.  The 'accident' concept doesn't make the people any less dead nor does it remove the buck stopping on Putin's desk.  He provided the weapons, his people trained them and that one a$$hole who was interviewed and rolled his eyes at the civilian dead was enough to make me physically ill.  These are sick, sick sick people.

It will be interesting, as well, to follow the money trail and see who tried to use the stolen credit cards of the dead.  That is against every kind of moral law I can think of.  Yes, it's happened before but this happens to be a war zone so it becomes an international incident.  Putin has gone off his rockers, methinks.  I honestly think he's crazy.

But, if the US State Dept proves that these rockets today/yesterday came from Russia itself?  It's a game changer.  There's just no doubt about it.  He can deny, deny, deny but it's still from his country.  The US would never be able to get away with it if it was shot off from New York City nor any other country's land!

I think Prince Harry as for his public work is doing a great job and even does admirable things but in his private persona I think Harry is a immature mess.  I do not get the impression he treats his GF's that well and he seems to like the party hard types because he parties hard.  I think while he is the cheerful happy Prince who is so personable and empathetic in public in private I bet he can be moody and maybe even controlling.  I have seen little hints of Harry getting all imperious.

I agree he need not have some sort of super woman -

that is anther area where a lot is going on rebel terrorist wise - so I hope we can find out how this plane crashed and what happened to the poor passengers

I hope this won't sound terrible but I am relieved at least we know it crashed - we do not need anymore mysteriously missing planes like the other Malayasian plane.

the US was going to send Syria military equipment but now the US is reconsidering that recognizing after what happened with MH17 that when you give weapons to rebels you are responsible for what they do with those weapons - the US does not want to end up being responsible for a bunch of rebels shooting down a commercial jet so no weapons

now this shows the US1) learned something from what happened in Ukraine and 2) the US has some morals and sense of responsibility

but - all this nuts on these web sites defend Russia and bash the US.  huh?  Russia obviously is not backing down - doesn't give a darn about those killed on that flight and is perfectly willing to risk another flight getting shot down with the weapons they keep supplying to these rebels.  I do pity the ukrainians - in the way of Putin's ambitions.

Putin will keep on doing this sort of stuff - Ukraine now - Georgia a few years ago - someplace else in a year or two.

i find this whole situation insane. first - there is isis - a bunch of people who decide one day that they will create a new country on the territory of 2 other countries. then part of Ukraine proclaimed that they are now a different country - Donetsk and this new country wants to join the motherland: Russia. Clearly Putin wants to get Ukraine to become part of Russia and if this can happen by collapsing the country economically, by creating a civil war, that's what he will do. the last 2 times when countries tried to expand at the expense of other countries ... the disagreements were settled in a world war.  nervous

If she was a true Tiger Mom, he kids would be functioning better.  It's true they behaved in school but not since they got out.  She gives the appearance that what they're doing is OK with her.

Also she put all her efforts in WK but has lost control (unless she is approving of the flashing and wasting money on
Kitchens).  Face it, a tiger mom whose daughter becomes princess should get her drilled in Speech making, basic royal protocols (like don't push past Senion Royals and too much stupid showing off dressed like a teenager).

could you picture a good mothers reaction to the 'Bay Watch run in giant wedges and a dress'?  yikes!!

A good tiger mom (or smart mother) would put time in coaching child on special behaviors expected in a certain venue.

Among CM's 3 cubs only Pippa seems to have any concept of behaving in particlular special situations.  WK and her kid brother have the behavior of 6 year olds.

CM is a wannabe tiger mom, but is not functioning herself on a high enough level to do her kids any good on the level they're playing on.   She is really just a dumb star struck stage mom with aspirations that she cannot handle.

she appears to be achieving but  POW, she gets them to the next level and a big disaster happens.

Mali president says wreckage of Air Algerie flight spotted in north

BAMAKO, July 24 (Reuters) - Mali's President Ibrahim Boubacar Keita said on Thursday that the wreckage of a missing Air Algerie flight had been spotted in his country's desert north.

"I have just been informed that the wreckage has been found between Aguelhoc and Kidal," Keita said during a meeting of political, religious and civil society leaders in Bamako. He did not give any more details.

This is a breaking news update. Please check back for updates.

Earlier version below:

There were few clear indications of what might have happened to flight AH5017, or whether there were casualties, but Burkina Faso's transport minister said the crew asked to adjust their route at 0138 GMT because of a storm in the area.

US: Russia fires artillery at Ukraine military, plans to send separatists more lethal weapons
Article by: ASSOCIATED PRESS , Associated Press Updated: July 24, 2014 - 1:45 PM

Quote
WASHINGTON — The Obama administration is accusing Russia of firing artillery to hit Ukrainian military sites and planning to send pro-Russian separatists more lethal weaponry.

The State Department says the U.S. has evidence that Russia is shelling Ukraine from sites inside Russia. Spokeswoman Marie Harf also says the U.S. has evidence Russia intends to deliver "heavier and more powerful multiple rocket launchers" to separatists battling Ukrainian forces in the east of the country.

Harf declined to provide details or elaborate on the evidence because she said she could not get into intelligence "source and methods."

The U.S. has repeatedly accused Russia of stoking the Ukraine rebellion and alleges that Russia is ultimately responsible for last week's downing of a Malaysian airliner over eastern Ukraine.

It's becoming indefensible, for me, to not start taking Putin by the throat.
