A bunch of BS. If there really were missiles the plane would have been downed.

This is the 1st attempted terrorist attack using the arms the US gives these rebels.

US provided the SAMs?

UK and France arm Syria rebels. Angela Merkel has expressed alarm, her government worries weapons provided to rebels end up in the hands of groups that threaten German and western interests. This attack on a Civilian aircraft is a reminder of Iraqi rebels shooting down a US freight aircraft.
Arms supplied by UK and France have now been used by rebels to attack a Russian civilian aircraft with 159 innocent civilian passengers. The FCO and William Hague must weigh this carefully, Britain should not supply arms to international murderers. It's against International Law and an act of war against Russia by Britain.
