It’s understandable if some reasonably big stories slipped past your radar. A handful of events have dominated the news cycle, and for once, it’s not entirely unreasonable. The killing of Iranian General Qassem Soleimani and the ensuing standoff between the U.S. and Iran is a very big deal.
It’s not the apocalyptic WWIII scenario that mainstream media tried to claim, but it’s a huge win for the United States and President Trump.
That’s why you might not have heard much about the Ukrainian airliner that went down on the same night Iran retaliated against us by bombing a military base just over the border in Iraq. It was flying over Iranian airspace when it crashed without issuing a distress call.
All 176 people on board were killed. It’s a big tragedy for Ukraine and the countries who lost members of their nation. Call it fortunate if you will, but no Americans were on the flight.
We now have reason to believe that the airplane was brought down by an Iranian missile, and not by engine failure like the Iranians claimed. This isn’t just U.S. intelligence making the claim. Canada’s Prime Minister, Justin Trudeau, is also saying that a missile took down the aircraft.
When the Canadians are calling foul, you know there’s something wrong. Despite that, Iran is holding to its story that the plane crash was purely an accident.
You’re no fool. You can see straight through this. But, it always helps to get as many facts as possible. In this video, Tim Pool will break down what we know for sure and discuss what is likely true.
Anyone who would tell you that Iran is non-aggressive needs to see this video. Maybe you should watch it before you share it with them.
