    It's a stupid business decision and the market place will weed out stupid businesses. Also, I've never considered myself an intellectual; think of me as the most informed person you will ever meet.
    Senator Rand Paul is alive because of modern medicine and because his attacker punches like a girl.

    Then why are you complaining? The market is functioning perfectly. Sure, several hundred people lost their lives, but the stockholders will lose something even more valuable...money. That'll teach 'em! I'm sure they'll never put passenger's lives at risk to save a few bucks ever again.
    "We grow up thinking that beliefs are something to be proud of, but they're really nothing but opinions one refuses to reconsider. Beliefs are easy. The stronger your beliefs are, the less open you are to growth and wisdom, because "strength of belief" is only the intensity with which you resist questioning yourself. As soon as you are proud of a belief, as soon as you think it adds something to who you are, then you've made it a part of your ego."

There are some people (including some here on TypoC) who seem willing to blame any act of violence on Muslim extremists, the way people a few years back were blaming every climate and agricultural problem on El Nino, regardless of the actual cause.

    I've been called a criminal, a terrorist, and a threat to the known universe. But everything you were told is a lie. The truth is, they've taken our freedom, our home, and our future. The time has come for all humanity to take a stand...

    It's a religious war between the Catholics of West Ukraine and the Orthodox of East Ukraine, supported by the Orthodox of Russia.

    Nobody here is blaming this attack on Islamic groups.

    Jihadist attacks are a real threat in some other parts of Russia, but not the border with Ukraine AFAIK. Contra Mole and others this conflict is fundamentally ethnic in nature, and has little if anything to do with religion.
