The Financial Times has an article that includes this picture
that shows pretty conclusive & convincing evidence that the Malaysia Airlines B777 was indeed shot down.
The wreckage was recovered by the people of Petropavlovka from a villager’s back yard last Thursday and moved to the roadside because it was believed to be important.
Two defence analysts in London and a former military pilot who have studied the picture corroborated the claim by a local man, who said he had served in the military, that much of the damage was consistent with a missile strike.
Now the question is “Who pulled the trigger?”
