A Ukrainian airliner that crashed in Iran, killing all 176 people aboard, was likely brought down by an Iranian missile, Canada’s prime minister, Justin Trudeau, said on Thursday, citing intelligence from Canadian and other sources.

Trudeau said his government would not rest until it had obtained closure, transparency, accountability and justice.

  1. What a major FUSTER CLUCK! What if the Canadians were really American Deep State Personnel hiding behind Canadian Passports, trying to make their escape before the SHTF? Wouldn't be the first time CIA and Canada did that.


  2. If it exploded at 8,000 ft. elevation, and at 350-400 knots airspeed, the debris field would be quite elongated. I am not sure this photo jives with others taken of late. Here:

    But, if the wreckage has been removed to some hangar for reconstruction, and a through investigation, as is the case for most fatal accident wreckage; WHY did they bulldoze over the crashsite? The cargo hold must have been full of seafood, something smells fishy.

  3. So Why was it a Ukrainian Passenger Jet? Seems like there is a lot of Coinkydinks here abouts. Mathematically impossible that all the threads seem to be magically connected at just the right points, eh?
