Apparently there were 100 researchers of HIV who were to attend a conference in Australia on the Malaysian Airways flight that was shot down by the Russians over the Ukraine. The estimate is that HIV research has back about a decade. If there were a proper international authority in existence then Putin and his stooges have just bought themselves a death sentence. Unfortunately there isn't and won't be for the foreseeable future.
If we had a proper Republican in the White House then the USAF and other NATO air forces would now be on their way to the Ukraine to carry out SEAD* missions on the the so-called rebels who are responsible for this atrocity. Unfortunately we are stuck with the Big Zero, a red diaper baby who clearly doesn't understand the duties of the office.
