Iran Forced to Admit Wrongdoing in Downing of Ukrainian Airliner

There is no doubt that there will be severe consequences for this.

When Iran sent 15 ballistic missiles skyward just three nights ago, it is believed that these weapons were likely set to miss their targets purposefully.

You see, Iran couldn’t justify actually causing any American casualties in Iraq, as that would have opened them up for an extraordinarily harsh response from an already trigger-happy Trump.  So, instead, Iran simply sent these bad boys near the Iraqi bases where American troops were stationed.

Amid the confusion, however, a Ukrainian airliner crashed near Tehran, in what was originally said to be an accident caused by pilot error or mechanical failure.  As more fact emerged, however, it became clear that foul play was afoot.

Late Friday night, Iran was forced to admit their tragic mistake.

Iran announced Saturday that its military ‘unintentionally’ shot down a Ukrainian jetliner, killing all 176 aboard.

The statement came Saturday morning and blamed “human error” for the shootdown.

The jetliner, a Boeing 737 operated by Ukrainian International Airlines, went down on the outskirts of Tehran during takeoff just hours after Iran launched a barrage of missiles at U.S. forces.

Iran had denied for several days that a missile downed the aircraft. But then the U.S. and Canada, citing intelligence, said they believe Iran shot down the aircraft.

The plane, en route to the Ukrainian capital of Kyiv, was carrying 167 passengers and nine crew members from several countries, including 82 Iranians, at least 63 Canadians and 11 Ukrainians, according to officials.

Canada, whose citizens comprised almost one-third of the 176 persons who perished in the plane’s downing, was the first nation to claim proof that Iran had taken the airliner down using force.
