Just had an interruption of my news watching that reports the US is confident that Iran shot down the passenger airplane. Anyone heard anything about that?
Seems it has somewhat changed now. DoD is now saying Iran DID to intend casualties in their missile attack on US bases. It's a very odd walk-back considering there is a massive difference between the two claims. One indicates Iran wanted to deescalate but needed to save face. The other indicates that Iran was prepared to dramatically escalate things.I think Evan had this figured out early in the game last night! Good job Evan!!
NY Times has published the video below that appears to show a missile hit the Ukrainian aircraft.
Bellingcat has independently performed an analysis on the same video. It's pretty clear at this point that it was a SAM strike that caused the plane to crash. The evidence is overwhelming. Now, the question becomes, does Iran admit guilt in light of the overwhelming evidence?NY Times has published the video below that appears to show a missile hit the Ukrainian aircraft.
Here is the story that goes with the video...
If this is even remotely true then Trump has just handed the Democrats an amazing lifeline.BTW, I think everyone is quite aware of my opinion of Trump and my feelings about him in general. With that in mind, I find it unhinged and completely absurd that people are attempting to blame Trump for the Ukrainian plane being shot down. Just absolutely ridiculous. Several Democratic politicians have also implied this or stated it explicitly.
All the Democrats had to do was not act crazy and they could've won 2020. I'll never vote for Trump, but I think the Democrats have damaged their standing in the upcoming election over the past few months. Snatching defeat from the jaws of victory.
