MH17: Russia won’t break, West will bend

As far as I can see, this thing is over. Nobody has effectively responded to the atrocity, Malaysia more or less upgraded some Russian-backed thugs to the status of something you could negotiate with and Moscow does not seem to be yielding any ground on the question of responsibility. Without American leadership …. ah, why even pursue that thought? I think this will trickle away and the world will focus on exhorting Israel to be reasonable.
