Dan Dicker, energy expert at thestreet.com talks with Jim Cramer about the downing of Malaysia Airlines flight 17. Many coincidences have left Dicker wondering just how big a ‘mistake’ it was for Russian Separatists to have shot down the Boeing 777. Ratcheting sanctions from the United States and a sinking oil price were putting immense pressure on the Russian economy, but since the jet’s loss, oil has strongly rallied and Europe again seems cowed in their approach to a pro-western Ukrainian government. If Putin did not give a direct order for the missile’s launch, he was far less than unhappy at the results, Dicker says.
