Absurd Misinformation and Propaganda About MH17

In the Netherlands the Left and the Right are united in moral outrage over the downing of flight MH17 by cronies of President Putin in the breakaway east of the Ukraine. But for the Left this hawkish tone is highly untypical. What's going on?

Presser by Dutch PM Mark Rutte: handling of the aftermath of the crash by Kozak separatists is disrespectful and disgusting. 

A stupid accident is much more likely, but the 'international community' is operating from a narrative of design. Why this escalation? The amount of misinformation and war propaganda from all sides is prolific. We will stop providing updates until such time that demonstrable facts become available; or a party involved breaks its narrative, signalling an ideological shift of importance.
