Rescue workers search sunflower fields around MH17 crash

HRABOVE, Ukraine (AP) -- In the sunflower fields around eastern Ukraine, lines of rescue workers disappeared into thick, tall growth, searching the wreckage of a Malaysia Airlines jet shot down as it flew miles above the country's battlefield. Elsewhere, news of the tragedy sparked an outpouring of grief and prayer as Malaysia reeled from the second disaster to hit its national airline in less than five months.

Here is a collection of images surrounding the tragedy.

If our PATHETIC pretend president Barack O'Blamer wasn't perceived by the rest of the world - especially our adversaries - as such a bumbling, fumbling and stumbling COWARD, this tragic incident would NEVER have occured in the first place.

breancat...the wise one is anything but WISE. She just made the most stupid and horrific comment of the year. She thinks this would not have happened if W was President. She blames 9/11 on Obama. She does not even know how to spell the President's name. She is clearly a conservative, probably tea party, because she does not have the ability to speak without calling people names. I truly hope that she has no family, as it is clear that she has ZERO friends.
