Malaysian Airliner lost to Ukrainian "Fog of War"

As I’m sure you’ve heard, 298 people have been killed on Malaysian airline flight MH17 over Eastern Ukraine. Although we don’t know who exactly is responsible for this tragedy right now, evidence seems to be pointing to Ukrainian rebels who have seized control of various areas of Ukraine (including where this plane went down, near Donetsk.)
