Iran Forced to Make Tragic Admission Regarding Ukrainian Airliner Crash

It has been an undoubtedly tumultuous week the world over, giving these first few moments of 2020 an eery and ominous vibe.

Americans are still awaiting the next shift in the ongoing impeachment of President Donald Trump, which has thus far provided endless unprecedented plateaus and posturing by our political class.  This uncertainty has been understandably frustrating and nerve-racking, casting a pall over the entire nation.

Then came the back-and-forth kerfuffle involving Iran, which stands today with Iran making the last move:  A 15 missile attack on American service members stationed in Iraq.  Those missiles thankfully did not cause any American casualties, but now a Ukrainian airliner crash that occurred in Iran that same night is being blamed on Tehran’s itchy trigger finger.

The statement came on Saturday morning via state TV with “human error” blamed for the downing of the plane. The responsible parties would be held accountable, the statement read on state TV said, with the government offering its apologies to the victims’ families including those of foreign nationals.

The Iranian foreign minister, Javad Zarif, wrote: “A sad day. Preliminary conclusions of internal investigation by armed forces: human error at time of crisis caused by US adventurism led to disaster. Our profound regrets, apologies and condolences to our people, to the families of all victims, and to other affected nations.”

Many international authorities were already operating under this assumption, especially after Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau announced that his nation had evidence of the plane being brought down by force.

The flight’s passengers were of a diverse national background, with nearly a third of those onboard hailing from Canada.
