It might be a little early but authorities should shut down the airspace over the Ukraine.
Hmmmm. Is this going to be used by politicians as the 2014 equivalent of The Maine (the Spanish-American War) or The Lusitania (U.S. entry into WWI)?
According to reports, the US and UK authorities had previously shut down the
airspace over Eastern Ukraine for their respective military and civilian aircraft
due to the ongoing conflict in the area.
It looks like other planes, whether organized by their home governments or not, are now staying away. Not a bad idea when someone is apparently shooting down planes.
I'm watching distant video of the crash and hearing a pundit claim it was not shot down ... the less we know the more they talk.

The "unknown unknowns".
Consider the Israeli ground invasion, the China Sea conflict and the expansion of the Japanese military, the various African conflicts and the Russian interest in reactivating the Cuban Cold War listening post.
...or the attacks in the Tonkin Gulf.
The us has just stopped US flights over that airspace.
The original no fly zone started a few months ago was further south over Crimea. Apparently there was less concern about flights over the rest of the Ukraine. Now the risk is better known.
Only three planes reported over the Ukraine airspace at the moment.
We clearly need a visit from Klaatu.
Render ALL military weapons and vehicles inert worldwide.
I assume you mean this guy...
...and not the Canadian rock group...
...though I'm just guessing.
You beat me to it, the Canadian rock group was the first thing I thought of but I figured it had to be something different
I'm sorry to have to admit that, what with the allegations that the overthrow of the elected government of Ukraine that we supported has no legitimacy under international law, and since I don't even know which side is running Crimea, I don't even know which side of any engagement there that occurs that we are on. And I'm not sure who's who in Iraq anymore, either.
