What comes first?
Money or human life?
There is no rational reason for an airline to fly over a war zone and doing it is irresponsible and negligent on the part of the carriers that do.
The downing of this commercial airliner was an accident that could have been avoided.
In the weeks before MH17’s downing, several Ukrainian planes and helicopters had been shot down. But although MH17 had reportedly flown a few hundred miles north of its planned course, in order to avoid a thunderstorm, its altitude should have marked it out as a passenger plane. No one thought that commercial jets would be in any danger over eastern Ukraine.
