Iran challenges suggestion of shooting down Ukraine jet by missile

Iran has challenged western leaders to prove that it shot down a Ukrainian plane that crashed southwest of Tehran. The UK, US, Canada and Australia have suggested that it is the most likely explanation. Iran has asked Canada to share its findings and has invited Boeing to participate in its inquiry into the crash.

Only an incompetent state like Iran could somehow brainwash people into thinking they’re the victims when their terrorist general is taken out and then go and throw all that brainwashed good Will in the trash by shooting down a jet liner with civilians on it a week later.

Yeah, when you dont allow access to the black box and you bulldoze over the crash site to cover up any evidence, of course you would welcome that challenge. Its like they aren't aware that there is other data showing that they launched a missile. Are they retarded?

Iran trying to save face and forestall the inevitable. It is their missile which shot down that jet, even if it was an accident.

Leftists are actually blaming Trump for Iran shooting down the jet. Multiple people on Imgur have argued this with me vehemently. TDS is real and it’s out of control.

It would've been better for Iran's public image to accept a trigger happy AA due to the country's state of high alert than just denying everything upfront. Basically saying "our undisciplined air defense done goofed".

The whole idea of the Iranian response to killing Suleimani was to _show_ that they have strong and precise missiles able to reach their enemies. Hitting the civvy airplane destroys that narrative, so of course they deny it.

After reviewing images of the downed fuselage I have to agree with Iran, it wasn’t a missile. The holes in the fuselage looks more like an explosion on board from a IED. It wasn’t a mistake it was a terrorist action against US allies and Iranian citizens that did not support Soulemani.
