Flight MH 17, a mystery or meticulously executed international incident?

22 July 2014, 07:51
I was very concerned when I first heard about another Malaysian Boeing that was lost, and this time apparently shot down by a missile. From the outset, everything pointed to a terrorist act where nearly 300 innocent people died. 
Like everybody else, I was quite distraught to think that it was an apparent target, which whoever fired the missile, wrongly identified as a legitimate military target. To make a mistake on this scale, was almost to ghastly to contemplate.
As further details became clear, the blame game started where both the Ukrainian Government and the Russian supported separatist movement, the  Donbass People's militia, blamed each other. It seemed that there were no clear indication of who did it and what their motive was. Yet, the USA and her allies were convinced that it was in fact the rebels that fired the missile, with tragic consequences. Also, it came to light that it was increasingly difficult for the rescue personnel and investigators to recover the bodies and wreckage.
While the abovementioned facts are there for everybody to see and read, it is a discovery a few hours ago that blew my mind and caused me to rethink the whole story from beginning to end.
Numbers
I discovered form various sources that the number 17 plays a huge role in this incident. First of all, the flight number is (was) 17, MH17, everbody knows that by now. What you probably don't know, is that that particular plane, a Boeing 777-200 ER (extra range), with registration number 9M-MRD first took to the skies on 17 July 1997! Furthermore, it was shot down on 17 July 2014, exactly 17 years after her maiden flight! Add to that the number of the flight, MH17, and you can well see why it stroke me as a one in a million chance coincidence. 
What the number 17 has to do with everything, I can't even start to imagine, if any, but I hope that it is just a tragic coincidence and not any other force trying to manipulate world events and thereby 'sacrificing' 298 innocent lives, including 80 children and six whole families. 
The number 17 in itself is bad enough if you look at the significance thereof, but a few other facts and theories has since emerged that makes you wonder out whether this is truly a tragic accident or something much more sinister. 
Firstly, there are voices that suggests that the forming of the Brics economic group, of which South Africa is by far the smallest member, is to create an alternative currency to oppose the US Dollar as the global trading currency. China, India, Russia, Brazil and South Africa has around 40%  of the world's population and as such could well pose a future threat to the dollar as world currency. Therefore, some people suggests, by trying to pin something globally abhorring on Russia by shooting down a civilian aircraft, could  put the Brics group in jeopardy and as such prolong the domination of the dollar. 
That theory has some plausibility and even sounds likely if you subscribe to various global theories. The story that broke over last weekend, however, that some passengers could have been dead even before they boarded the flight, sounds just a bit far fetched, even for the biggest of skeptics. 
Whatever the outcome, I think that we haven't heard 10% of the whole story. I sure hope that some of my theories are proofed far from the truth. The alternative would be too painful to contemplate.
