Busted: Before Admitting They Downed Ukrainian Aircraft, Iranian Officials Already Gave It Away

(Liberty Bell) – A Ukrainian airliner carrying 180 passengers and crew crashed on Wednesday morning just after Iran had sent a series of missiles on Iraqi bases used by American and coalition forces.

It didn’t take long for the global community to establish that the plane had been taken down by a missile, and Al Hadath Dubai News reported as much.

On Thursday, Ukrainian officials said they would be investigating the crash site for missile parts after the many photographs obtained of the scene that quickly circulated the internet seemed to indicate just this.

Some of the photos indicated shrapnel damage on the wings and the fuselage of the downed aircraft.

On Thursday, US officials announced they were confident that the jet had been shot down, most likely by accident.

Also on Thursday, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau told reporters that there was evidence the plane, in which 63 Canadians perished in the crash, had been shot down by Iranian surface-to-air missiles.

On Friday, it was reported that the Iranian regime had picked the site clean of any evidence, and the crash site was not even cordoned off.

Photos also surfaced indicating the crash site had been bulldozed to hide the evidence.

Iranian officials, however, deny that the site was bulldozed, despite photographic evidence to the contrary.

The Gateway Pundit notes that the Iranian Ambassador to the UK “raised his voice” when asked by a reporter from Sky News about the bulldozing of the crash site evidence.

But then there’s this:

Now, TGP reports, bomb-sniffing dogs were seen at the crash site! WTH?

One reader from The Gateway Pundit noted:

In this article at Daily Mail there is a picture (I attached it) where there is a security guy with the letters EOD on his back with a German Shepherd dog going over the site. In military terms EOD stands for explosives ordinance disposal, I don’t know why an Iranian would use the English letters, but, if it was explosive ordinance disposal I would assume that dog has a pretty good nose to sniff out explosives.

Why would they be looking for explosives except to make sure the site was checked for any remains of a missile that would have obvious traces of explosives that would cause problems keeping up the narrative that it was a mechanical malfunction. Just something I noticed.

  1. I question the shooting down the Ukrainian as an accident. Commercial air crafts file flight plans which includes routes before ever taking off. So Iran knew they were coming long before the plane ever took off.This not to say that a.by an over zealous commander, missile wasn’t fired by accident at the civilian air craft before its ID was verified. Either way their is no excuse for it and for the loss of life.

  2. Why do you think the Iranians took the “Black Box” and would not let others review the tapes? They would not admit to their actions until irrefutable evidence like the scrapnel in the fuselage skin was found. Prayers go out for the passengers/families of the victims on the Ukrainian airlines. If they could take the airliner out, they could certainly take out the bases where our Military are housed. I believe they did not kill any American due to the fact, President Trump would have taken out their 52 targets. PEACE THROUGH STRENGTH!!!!!

  3. Americans, let’s help D.J. and ourselves!

    In 1982 an assessment of the actual threats to DOD personnel assigned abroad was conducted by a group of army officers. Their briefing to Reagan’s military chiefs provided the most significant threat was that presented by the Islamic State. That briefing provided one very old principal of war (The best defense is a good offense) and a new one just for the radical Muslim crowd (Kill them in their beds before they kill us in ours) were best suited to meet the threat. No one listened and it has cost America trillions of dollars and thousands of our young people. While you are thanking God for D.J. Trump read the comment below and ask yourselves, when are you going to act to help him save your behinds?

    Rape, Pillage,Plunder; America, You’ve Been Had!

    How much more before you stand up to those who have made the following lessons learned facts?

    1. The American people are the most effectively lied to people in modern times thanks primarily to the American political class, the American bureaucracy, the American media, and American academia.

    2. Arrogance coupled with ignorance equals stupidity.

    3. The greatest threats to the American people are the corrupt and/or incompetent politicians/bureaucrats/academicians found at every level of government/academia, and the majority of the American so-called media.

    4. Most of the politicians/bureaucrats/academicians I have encountered during my years as a soldier/cop I most kindly refer to as; self-serving, witless, cowards.

    5. The American Profession of Arms and our brothers/sisters in blue have failed to protect the American people from all of their enemies, both foreign and most especially domestic.

    PS These lessons learned were first presented to a gathering of Americans in 1989. The only positive change to the American political environment since then has been the arrival of one, Donald J. Trump!

  4. Here’s a Thought…THIS WAS NO ACCIDENT !!!
    The Iranians Already KNEW About The Aircraft Before It Took Off and Had Already Decided To Shoot It Down and Used The Missile Attack on The Base as a Decoy. The Missiles Launches Weren’t That Far Away, For Them To Have To Launch Them So High.
    They Barely Hit The Base…yet…Was Able to Hit a High Flying Fast Moving Aircraft ???

  5. Ukrainian plane with (almost?) no Americans in it was shut down by Iranians, but the anti-Trump propaganda machine perpetuates a lie that it was a retaliation for klling Sulleimani, and blame Trump for it.

    In rare moments like this, the Democrat Party and its attack-dogs media show that they do not hesitate to side with our sworn enemies for political gain. If this is not corruption with elements of treason then nothing is.

  6. There are no oops, we just shot down a scheduled airline. Unfortunately, Americans opened the door, using language, that it probably was an accident. That’s America’s way of closing the door on the drone missile. And not losing one American Life. Sad that 176 innocent people had to lose their lives, on retribution.

    But that’s how business is conducted in Iran. As long as they kill people, they don’t care who.

    It was NO accident!

    • So, they shut down Ukrainian plane with almost no Americans on it and in your propaganda brain it means a retaliation against killing Suleimani.

      Yours is typical liberal nonsense. No concern of truth or correcrness, just a political gain.

  7. It’s outrageous that callow people make asinine political and satirical remarks during the tragic loss of 180 decent souls.
    Just sayin.
    It’s also very puzzling why the Iranian air traffic control would launch a plane during a missile attack.

    • Only because one hand didn’t know what the other hand was going to do until it was to late. I am sure the Iranian traffic control saw the missile heading towards the plane and could only warn the plane to pull up higher, but be a jet liner it could only get only so much higher. And their government I am sure they told the controllers not to say what they saw either on radar. Their country must pay and suffer as well.

  8. Frankly, I am quite surprised that the story given by Tehran and “Tehran West” (the Demoncrat congress) did not suggest something along the lines of. . “Born on a distant planet of OMFG, trump was shot into space at birth by his own parents recognized the danger of being Trump. Crashing to earth as a baby and fostered to adult by the angels in the California Child care and saftey, a division of the Department of children and families. Trump hid from the world as a billionaire Playboy who was mentally damaged enough to give millions to Demonrat Political Operatives before being miraculously “healed” by Earth’s yellow sun. . .became a Conservative terrorist, flying around the world in his playboy P.j.’s, drinking, doing drugs, pissing on Obama’s Holy resting place in the Holiest of Holy cities, Moscow, in Mother Russia, Trump leapt from Washington D.C. after holding Demoncrats as hostages to their own actions by holding them accountable. In a drunken rage, Trump intercepted the aircraft and knocked it from the sky with his secret weapon, “whore’sbreath” which he had stolen from Pelosi earlier that day. . . . Yeah! that shit could work. . .If the reader is a complete ass-wipe Demonrat. . . .

    • Wil, AWESOME COMMENT!!! I believe that this one needs to go to the top of the list of the top comment of 2020!!! If this one doesn’t win at the end of the year, it certainly should make the “2020’s Top 10 Hilarious yet Valid Comments of the Year”!!!!!

      Live long and prosper!


  9. The Dems want the Iranians as voters, heck they’ll take anyone, Illegals are fine too. Just can’t take those aborted children……..

    • Which is kind of ironic since most of the aborted children would have been raised by single welfare mothers. They would most likely grow up to be democrat voters.

      Perhaps it is because a small percentage of them would end up becoming successful and self supportive enough to vote conservative.

  10. Really, an accident, the party responsible should be brought before the World Court for war crimes or at least terrorist actions. Why is there no International out cry, was there a movie that caused this like Benghazi. I am sure the Democrats would agree. Does it take American citizens to be killed before the world community Rises to the Call. We Americans should feel honored.

    • Pete.
      Exactly correct. However, if anyone believes it was accidentally shot down, I have some great property for sale in rice paddies.

      They needed to take lives, in retaliation to Soleimanis extinction. And were very careful not to include Americans. Not one American was on that plane. Coincidence? Believe in the tooth fairy?

  11. Well, Pelosi was ready, willing and eager tp surrender and kowtow to Iran right from the get-go. The Dems are so far left that they don’t care about anything except total power ***over*** the people. How appropriate that the Latin word for “left” is “sinister.”

  12. SO, just maybe, they shouldn’t have “NUCLEAR” weapons!!!!! It’s like graduating from a BB gun to a real rifle. DUH. Proves their NOT ready.

    • YES~`100 percent correct comment. If this is what happens with surface to air missiles..what happens when they have nuclear. The OH WHOOPS goes to a much higher level, like world level destruction.

  13. The dems lie & blame President Trump for the disaster caused by a trigger happy Iranian. Truedope will not do anything about it!

    • It isn’t like the Dims are virgins about lying to achieve their goals when it suits their purpose. I remember an attack that happened supposedly spontaneously because of a video and the Dims promised they would go after whomever was involved with the video and hold them accountable. It was just a coincidence it happened on the anniversary of 9-11. It would seem they were covering for terrorist activity then also. Islam, the religion of peace as long as everyone is the same religion.

    • Pete it takes two pieces of equipment to launch a SAM! A radar transceiver to identify the possible target. It will give heading, speed, altitude. the Launcher to send the missile to follow the radar signal to the target. You do not have a SAM site to fire automatically when it is near an international airport!

    • Pete, “Anti-air missile system could have been set to fire automatically.”

      Scratching my head…….Pete, help me figure out why more commercial airliners taking off from Tehran on a routine flightpath haven’t been shot down by surface to air missiles “set to fire auromatically”?

    • theicecube, “Islam, the religion of peace as long as everyone is the same religion.”

      Not even that! ISIS killed more fellow muslims in the name of Islam than any other religion.
