Skip to comments.Iran says U.S. bears blame for Iranian forces shooting down plane
Posted on 01/14/2020 11:28:20 AM PST by Oldeconomybuyer
Iran said Tuesday that dozens of people had been arrested over the Islamic Republic's apparently unintentional shooting down of a Ukrainian jetliner last week. The arrests come amid Iranian vows to fully and openly investigate the firing of the surface-to-air missile that downed the plane, killing all 176 people on board.
But while Iran confessed to shooting the jet down three days after the fact and under intense international pressure its president asserted Tuesday that the "root causes" of the tragedy were U.S. actions.
"It was the U.S. that caused such an incident to take place," Iran's state-controlled news agency Tasnim quoted President Hassan Rouhani as saying. The Iranian regime has blamed the Trump administration for ratcheting up tensions with the controversial decision to kill senior Iranian military commander Qassem Soleimani in a January 2 drone strike in Baghdad.

The fault lies with Mad Mo’.
i swear that the left and the terrorists in the middle east are out to out stupid each other=-
I am sure The Washington Post and New York Times will agree with this assessment.
Supplied with Democrat party talking points?
CBS reporting Blame America First
what a surprise
If it weren’t so disgusting and troubling, it would be hilarious that the Iranians are channeling the American Left.
Not true, and yet it is the Mullahs who bear the blame for our killing their general Soleimani. ALL his terrorist activities were on their direction.
“”””””””” apparently unintentional shooting down of a Ukrainian jetliner last week”””””””””””””””””
President Trump “apparently accidentally” blew up the general, too. Two can play at that game.
The MSM handed this tact to the mullahs on a silver platter.
Must have been secretly talking to Pelosi and the rest of the Demiranians.
How do I know it was “unintentional”?
I’m certainly not about to take SeeBS “News” word for it.
IOW, the mullahcracy will endorse either Psychojawea, or the Fairy Princess.
The President is in their heads! 24/7
Soon he will start dismantling their brains. He is already at it, Tweeting in Farsi..
Kudos to president Trump.
Deterrence instead of Appeasement.
You can tell its working extremely well by t he spin doctors in the Fale News aligning them selves with a genocidal totalitarian regime.
ATTA GO fake news.
Meanwhile listen to this. President Trump is Going to win November with a 40 + state landslide.
How many rockets, missiles or other projectiles did the U.S. launch at Tehran in response to their aggression?
Zero? Okay, that’s the level of our country’s responsibility for what Iran did.
They are just following the lead of the dems and their media puppetmasters, and Trudeau.
Somebody here posited that Iran planned the shootdown in expectation that the US would raid Tehran that night.
And the blame America narrative was pre-coordinated.
c”bs” KNOWS Iran was killing witnesses to its
nuclear deal with Kerry and Obola.
typical MSM coverup for enemies of the usa.
I have no doubt Nancy Pelosi probably contacted them and told them - this would be the most effective narrative at this time.
