I'm not surprised. Not that they're stupid - don't get me wrong - but because the Russian separatists are entrenched in often confusing situations, I can see where a passenger jet would accidentally become a target for a trigger-happy, grandstanding idiot. I feel horrible for the victims and their families. I can't imagine putting someone on that flight only to learn hours later that it was downed by a missile...or waiting in Kuala Lumpur for a loved one to arrive after months (or years) of separation. So sad.
