In an effort to make the rebels look bad, Ukraine shot down two of its fighter jets as they were returning to base.
UN Human Rights boss Navi Pillay says Israel's military actions in Gaza "could amount to war crimes".

But never one to let a couple of international crises screw up perfectly good fundraising opportunities, the "greenest president in the history of the country" jetted on over to Seattle yesterday; his entourage landed at Boeing Field and from there departed to the posh home of the founder of CostCo, who's long been a big Obama fan.
Yet another reason for never shopping at that place.
The fundrising will continue until the crises improve.
