HONOLULU – U.S. Representative Colleen Hanabusa (HI-01) condemned the downing of a Malaysian Airlines jet flying over Ukraine, and expressed her support for a multi-national investigation into the attack and swift punishment for the attackers.

“From what we now know, it appears that the downing of a Malaysian Airlines jet flying over Ukraine was an indefensible act of violence, perpetrated by cowards against defenseless civilians,” Hanabusa said. “Targeting a civilian aircraft is unconscionable and violates every standard of honorable behavior, regardless of the conflict on the ground. I believe that an attack of this nature calls for a multi-national task force to determine, in a transparent way, what occurred and who is responsible. It is also incumbent on all civilized nations to agree on and mete out swift, effective justice on those responsible, whatever their nationalities or allegiances.”




  1. T he Malaysian Air incident could have been avoided.Even before the shoot down,the USgovernment was deeply involved in the civil war in Ukraine(no surprise). The US State Dept. and the CIA (no surprise) engineered the fascist backed coup that toppled Ukraine's democratically elected president Victor Yanukovych and replaced him with an American puppet Arsiniy Yatsenyuk,a former banker. so for the first time since 1945,a neo Nazi, openly anti- semetic party controls key parts of Ukraine thanks to the Obama(Nobel Peace Prize Winner) Administration.We are involved in nother war in another far away land.nothing changes except for all the civilians getting killed on the ground and in the air. Hanabusa Should condemn what the American Empire is causing in the Ukraine,Syria,Libya,Egypt,Yemen. And it very possible the Malaysian Airline was shot down by missiles fired from American backed military.

  2. Malaysian Flight 17 was shot down over Ukraine on JULY 17 (2014) TWA Flight 800 was shot down in NYC on JULY 17 (1996) Malaysian Flight 17 had her maiden voyage on JULY 17 (1997) The Czar of Russia and entire family was executed on JULY 17 (1918). I shipped on a merchant ship loaded with ammo headed for Da Nang, Rep. Of Viet-Nam on JULY 17 (1970). Coincidence?

  3. Also The Israeli Army invaded Gaza with 60,000 troops on JULY 17 (last week). And also, there is now a possibility that Malaysian Flight 370 that vanished on March 8th of this year was the plane that was actually shot down over Ukraine and NOT Flight 17. There is more developing on this. Also the Israeli Government and Mossad were directly involved with the disappearance of Malaysian Flight 17. The former Prime Minister of Malaysia has been a harsh critic of Isrrael in the past. And on November 25,2013, barely seven months ago,The state of Israel was convicted of murder,genocide,and crimes against humanity by the International War crimes Tribunal in Kuala Lumpar, Malaysia.Israel refused to attend and defend itself.So there is a motive, the means and the opportunity by Israel for the tragedy of Malaysian Flt.370.

  4. OOps! I meant to write:Also the Israeli government and Mossad were directly involved with the disappearance of Malaysian Flight 370.sorry about that.
