At last, Russia & Ukraine have got round the table, and talked something out; whether it'll work is a matter for debate.

Are the 1930s repeating themselves? Are we heading to yet another world war? - I sincerely hope not.

With a foreign civilian aircraft having been shot down, the proverbial is flying towards the fan at a rate of knots.

A little worrying isn't it?

I see Obama is getting rather antsy...

What I find odd is the presupposition, before any investigation has taken place.

According to a report on http://www.allvoices.com this aircraft had been diverted over 300 miles north from its declared flight-plan. This put it directly over the war-zone.

Two questions have popped into my head:
1) How much have the black boxes been tampered with
2) Investigators haven't had proper access to the crash site so far, why would anyone think they'd get proper access in the future.

Everything seems to have turned very quiet here. Something must be happening in Ukraine, but the media seems to have got bored of the whole situation months ago.

Russia has accused the Ukraine of reneging on a finance deal. Not sure where this one will lead.

There was also a Russia/Ukraine issue a few days back over cyber-hacking utilities.
