"This is a problem — a very serious problem. Australia takes a very dim view of countries which facilitate the killing of Australians. The idea that Russia can wash its hands of responsibility because this happened in Ukrainian airspace just does not stand up to serious scrutiny. We all know what's happening in the Ukraine." — Australian Prime Minister Tony Abbott, calling for an independent, international investigation into the downing of a Malaysian jetliner in Ukraine and demanding Russia's full cooperation.

"Israel has legitimate security concerns, and we condemn the indiscriminate rocket fire from Gaza into Israel that ended yesterday's temporary cease-fire. But we are alarmed by Israel's heavy response." — U.N. Under-Secretary-General for Political Affairs Jeffrey Feltman at an emergency U.N. Security Council meeting.

"I honestly feel we can go offshore and harvest the energy that's out there. I think we're kind of foolish not to." — South Carolina state Sen. Paul Campbell on the Obama administration's approval of the use of underwater blasts for oil and gas exploration in federal Atlantic Ocean waters.
