Malaysia Airlines flight MH17 has crashed in Ukraine, on the border with
Russia, with 298 people onboard. Ukraine's interior ministry says the plane
was shot down by a missile.
All day long Dutch TV has been dominated by the news that a
passengerplane had crashed in the Ukraine. 298 People were killed, among
them 189 Dutch. But also people from the UK, Australia, Phillipines.
These were all innocent people, going on a holiday, even on a honeymoon,
or to a conference in Australia. The plane flew at a height of at least
10 or 11 kms. This was permitted.
I don't understand why we are now involved in the war between the two
groups in the Ukraine.The leader who can stop this conflict peacefully
deserves all possible honour and a statue.
