The bottom line is the ego-madness and wag-the-dog arrogant stupidity in this particular case, by donald trump & co precipitated and is the direct underlying cause of this hideous tragedy that seems reasonably likely at this point in time.
The trump/US assassination of General Soleimani, illegal by International and US law, is the proximate cause of this and so many other atrocities by the trump regime as well as numerous actions designed to precipitate war with Iran!
The clear and present danger to the entire world by pathological morons, especially the malignant narcissist variety, should never be allowed or tolerated in such a position of power - same as restricting assault weapons to idiots - and as in this case, immediately removed from power as a deranged danger and threat to all, as demonstrated by innumerable actions by the trump death clowns! Clearly the laughable “compelling” secret evidence is an obvious violation of all norms of governance and oaths of office!

ENOUGH!!

Bernie 2020 for sanity, integrity and truth!

This is just horrible.

More likely a missile from occupied Palestine or Zionist Israel Mossad. Anything…to provoke world opinion against Iran.

Which part?

Whether it was an accident or not, now der trump will use this to whip up the base’s hatred and bloodlust. I’m waiting for someone to suggest a “false flag”. Let the conspiracy theories begin!

A tragedy upon tragedy…the deaths of mourners at the funeral, now this

In war the innocent become victims, either intentionally or it appears in this case accidentally

Recall Malaysian Flight 17 being shot down over Ukraine?

But it explains the restrained, measured response of Iran

If Trump makes political capital - let’s remind him of USS Vincennes shooting down an Iranian airliner

If I was looking for a conspiracy I would suggest that perhaps US electronic counter-measures confused and deceived Iranian radar and defence systems soon as American satellites spotted the Iranian missile launches rather than any deliberate missile attack. A tragic accident.

All kinds of conspiracy theories out there. Here’s a boat load of questions that remain to be argued over. One has been put to rest…“it is doubtful that a stray Iranian missile was involved in the downing of PS752…”

Let us also not forget the accidental shoot-down in 1996 of TWA Flight 800 off Long Island, NY. The incident and numerous eyewitness accounts are termed “conspiracy theories” but the cover-up was massive.

Flight 800’s destruction was “not caused by a random, anomalous spark in the center fuel tank filled with vapors, as the government’s “investigators” contended, but that it was brought down by a missile or three, in all likelihood fired inadvertently during naval warfare exercises taking place off Long Island in those waters in the time frame of the crash. The exercises were known as Operation Global Yankee 96. The operation involved surface vessels, submarines, and P-3 Orion aircraft coordinating to shoot down practice drone aircraft targets”.- that incident and tragedy was never fully or truthfully investigated, but covered-up to not embarrass those responsible.

A similar mid-air explosion shortly after take-off to the doomed Ukrainian flight taking off from Tehran, that never should have under the circumstances and timing and madness of the day!.

Trudeau is being embarrassing… he is assuming this was a missile because? Perhaps waiting for the investigation to be completed would be a good idea.
The missiles fired at the bases were surface-to-surface missiles; why would they suddenly fire one surface-to-air missile at a plane in their own airspace?
Makes no sense.

It is Iran that has refused to turn over the “black box”. Somehow I doubt this is Trump’s fault. This is all on the Iranians themselves.

They have refused to give it to the US investigators. Do you blame them for being suspicious of our intentions? Not saying it was or wasn’t anything, but I doubt it would be an unbiased investigation when it is being done by the US government.

Oh boy, he we go again. US and Canada leaping to tall conclusions with a single bound. After the Malaysia airlines fake investigation, those data recorders should be analyzed by independent(non NATO and non Iranian) investigators.
Actually the 737 800 also known as the NG has a fault, the trim wheels are too small to easily handle a runaway horizontal stabilizer supposedly.

Yes, it is.

Trudeau is the usual suspect in " the ol’ third party close " routine. Why? He got Bolivia, after all.
The Brits pile on because; well, why not? They used it on Corbyn and Neo-Cons will stop at nothing to win. Trudeau is a Neo-Con wearing shades, when you see him think of Bob Roberts.
Trudeau is a large package of Canadian Bacon; he’s lean but still a porker.
The 3rd Party Close is used because it works. See Neo-Liberalism from 1980- to the present.

Thank you for remembering and honoring those blessed souls who perished as Daddy Warbucks endangered one of the continents most densely populated areas and trafficked sea and air lanes…

They’ve agreed to turn the black box(es) over. Also, to allow NTA and others to inspect debris field. Which is a real tell as boxes could be damaged.
Iran has also said PM Netanyahu could come over with MBS for brunch this weekend.
