Source: Missile system transported back to Russia

U.S. officials telling CNN they believe a Buk missile system, a surface-to-air weapon, was smuggled into Ukraine prior to Flight 17 being shot down.

Those officials say they believe it was moved back to Russia after the attack. The implication is that Russia is trying to tamper with evidence.

    I don't know if you noticed but both situations are similar. In Ukraine Putin launched some crazies that he disowns to create bedlam in Ukraine to destabilize it. If you were a staunch loyalist of Russia, would you not want to live in Russia, not Ukraine? Where is the logic here .In the Israeli/Palestinian situation who is to say whether it was Hamas or Al Quaida who killed those three teenagers in Israel. They knew that the radical Orthodox Jewish element would decide to burn a Palestinian kid to death when alive. An eye for an eye, and a tooth for a tooth. The Islamists need the tense situation of Israel and Palestine to give them a reason to continue to fight/ hate America/ continue with their extremist Islamic radicalism. Religion has a way of creating me who die for a higher calling but not for their fellow citizens.

    Well Max, who fired the first rockets into Israel? Who kidnaps and murders Israeli teenagers? It's gonna be hard to drum up sympathy for your cause when you start everything.
