Jumpy Iranian air defense most likely shot down the plane. Jumpy US forces are careful to not make that mistake again.

Iran will not give black box to Boeing.

They accidentally shot it down?

On purpose since it was Ukraine?

Hey, welcome back! Seven years is a long time. And you’re right....a lot of people forget that we shot down a jet airliner in error off the Iranian coast many moons past, because (as I recall) our ship's radar defense systems mistook the Airbus 300's radar signature for an inbound Iranian Tomcat.

Oil and stock markets stable today, so they believe Iran has backed down. So far in this phase of the war the Iranians have killed more Iranians than the US has.

Don't worry, Fox will turn it into Obama's fault, as usual. They will somehow manage to prove again that he paid for it from his personal bank account. :biggrinjester:

No they don't. Fox is actually laying it right where it belongs, on Iran. Now the leftists on the other hand are trying to blame Trump. Because they are all mindless morons who don't care about America. They only care about achieving power.

Makes one wonder----- were there any Ukrainians on board with ties to the Biden or Clinton families? Not accusing, just wondering.

Everyone knew this is what happened the second it happened. I was looking at the commercial airliners not even being rerouted during this missile strike. I knew this was gonna happen

Already is. Twitter is exploding with idiots, but I repeat myself, claiming it is Trumps fault that the Iranians were jumpy and that's why they shot down the plane. They actually want Trump to take responsibility and apologize. They are insane!

It wasn't a missile, it was a fuel tank explosion.

Exactly old wiring running through a fuel tank.

And we know this how? I’m not saying you’re wrong, but given the situation at the time, that would be a heck of a coincidence.

Sorry, I shouldn’t make light of the tragic shoot down of TWA flight 800 by terrorists in 1996, just months before a Presidential election.

It is clear that the Iranians mistakenly shot down this airliner, it was not a fuel tank explosion. Flight 800 was also not a fuel tank explosion.
