James!: A friend of my wife works for the Australian consulate in the city. They had the largest group of citizens lost in the crash. Their foreign minister was in the Ukraine to receive the bodies the other day.It's been rough.
macross87: Why would I want to see profiles of dead people?
Crass and Jaded Mother Farker: Yeah, ok, sad...But, on the other hand...If you need an apartment or a job in Holland...Now might be a good time to try.
worlddan: macross87: Why would I want to see profiles of dead people?Crass and Jaded Mother Farker: Yeah, ok, sad...But, on the other hand...If you need an apartment or a job in Holland...Now might be a good time to try.Thanks. For a moment there I thought something had happened to Fark, some strange disturbance in the force, like I had been transported to a kinder, gentler universe.
AirForceVet: Appreciate the NYT making the loss of all those people over such cold-blooded stupidity that much more real to us all./F**king Russian bastards.
abhorrent1: It is sad seeing whole families wiped out.
orezona: abhorrent1: It is sad seeing whole families wiped out.The couple with the 1yr old...Damn.
Korzine: Those who live in glass houses shouldn't throw rocks America. Or are we ignoring Iran Air Flight 655.
The Repeated Meme: AirForceVet: Appreciate the NYT making the loss of all those people over such cold-blooded stupidity that much more real to us all./F**king Russian bastards.It is tragic when white people die.Meanwhile, in Gaza, dead children at the UN building, but no one cares, because, y'know, brown people.
zerkalo: All gone so that a few alcoholic, out-of-work coal miners could play army in the service of a Machiavellian despot wannabe
LessO2: I'm sorry, I don't feel like the room is "dusty" (by the way, it's time to retire that over-used saying).
GungFu: abhorrent1: It is sad seeing whole families wiped out.Nick Norris, 68; Mo, 12; Evie, 10; and Otis Maslin, 8Australia http://www.scmp.com/article/1558938/three-children-killed-mh17-trage dy -grew-hong-kong[www.scmp.com image 486x302]The Maslin kids were onboard with their grandfather, Nick Norris. Parents decided to stay on a little longer in Holland and survived. The link has a letter written by them expressing their pain. It's heartbreaking.
SCUBA_Archer: Ban anti-aircraft missiles!
Great_Milenko: Wonderful people die every day, and so do absolute sons of biatches.They die from cigarettes and drunk driving. Plain-old old age. Cancer. Suicide. They die suddenly or after lingering for decades. They die at home. In operating rooms. In anonymous hotel rooms, and even at work. Some die in the defense of others, other die at the hands of the State.I feel bad for all of them. I understand why we need to make special note of these people, but it's not going to change anything, and all their deaths will bring is even more death.
Aigoo: And that's the problem, isn't it?No one--and I mean no one in the entire farking world--will stand up to Russia and Putin. No one.Vlad thinks he can get away with it because he can. Because the "leaders" of the world let him. There is a cure for that, but it's illegal. Not necessarily immoral in this case, but that can be a fine line sometimes.
juvandy: How do you stand up to Putin?
xevian: juvandy: How do you stand up to Putin?Real easy. You just need one good shot. If you miss, he goes into hiding for 6 months, and then you try it again; or perhaps he just needs some good weed.
