Iran admits shooting down Ukrainian plane

Iran admitted its military ’unintentionally’ shot down a Ukrainian jetliner this week, killing 176 aboard. The announcement from the military cited ’human error’ for the strike, caused by ’US adventurism’. The statement added that responsible parties would be referred to a judicial department within the military and held accountable. Iran’s President Rouhani called it an ’unforgivable mistake’.

Denied until the last moment when in the light of evidence it became impossible to deny. Now they'll punish the poor sob who pressed the button on command from above.

The [now previous] title somehow bringing in Pelosi is double damned because the news of the Iranian people's reaction is truly staggering. I read the NYT article with my mouth hanging open at times. An Iranian general offers full regret and wishes his death in remorse. Protestors shout, "death to the lairs, death to the dictator" of the Iranian leaders. This just days after the official burial of a 'state martyr'.

No longer matters, they have bulldozed the site. No definite proof will ever be found to counter thier, and the DNC narrative.

wow... I'm surprised they ever admitted to it. Figured they would blame Israeli Mossad. Looks like they are taking a line from the terrorist apologist in America... err.. I mean the Democrats. 'Iran's foreign minister tweeted that it was a "sad day" but that the U.S. "adventurism" had caused the disaster.'

I'm still wondering why they tried to deny and cover it up in the first place. They had to know people saw it.

Whole I honestly commend the regime for admitting this, there still needs to be severe consequences for them. I don't care how sorry their leaders are, you can't kill nearly 200 civilians and get away with just a sincere apology. Now what should the punishment be exactly? I honestly don't know what kind of punishment could suffice, without pushing Iran to all out war out of sheer desperation.

Wow I am shocked they admitted it. I am glad they did though the Iranian Government may come to regret that decision.
