    Were it not for Russia handing over said weapon and providing said training, the rebels would not have had the wherewithal to shoot down a commercial airliner at 33,000 feet.

    How much responsibility you can pin on Russia is of course up for debate, but it certainly seems irresponsible to provide such a system to a group that lacked either the ability or the desire to avoid shooting down a civilian airliner.
