Unfortunate to say the least, Iran has now owned up to accidentally shooting down the Ukraine International Airlines flight PS752:



Human error at time of crisis caused by US adventurism led to disaster. Our profound regrets, apologies and condolences to our people, to the families of all victims, and to other affected nations.


www.rt.com...




Iranian state TV, citing a military statement, said the country "unintentionally" shot down a Ukrainian Airlines passenger jet early Wednesday, killing all 176 people aboard, according to The Associated Press. The statement came early Saturday morning local time.

The admission comes after Iranian officials vehemently denied claims that they mistakenly shot the jet and accused the United States of "spreading lies" about intelligence suggesting they did. Of the 176 people killed in the crash, most were Iranian and Canadian nationals.

The fog of war (German: Nebel des Krieges) is the uncertainty in situational awareness experienced by participants in military operations. The term seeks to capture the uncertainty regarding one's own capability, adversary capability, and adversary intent during an engagement, operation, or campaign.

"Human Error" translates to MORONS given charge of deadly weaponry.

After the Ukrainian Embassy retracted their initial statement that it was mechanical failure and published that they would reassess after an investigation........and like magic Iran fesses-up to the truth.

Something they should have admitted to IMMEDIATELY, after all, everyone makes mistakes.....

Don’t worry.
I’m sure they’ll be more careful with a nuke.

I mean, logically? Yes, clearly.

Anytime you kick up the scale competence increases commensurately.

Yep, there seems to be a lot of "morons" enlisted in the Iranian military. Can you imagine them with nuclear weapons? Scary thought.

It can't replace a loved-one, but Iran will compensate the families financially.

Oh, well it only took a week for them to admit to it. So it's cool, like the 10 second rule.

Many thought this may be the case.

What a tragic thing that effected many nations, as those on board came from around the world.

Assuming it was an accident, I doubt that means much to those who lost loved ones.

A demonstration by Iran's Elite Revolutionary Guard?

The two terrorists directly responsible for the shoot-down.

twitter.com...

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau should demand that they be tried and executed, if found guilty.

What would President Trump demand if 10, 30, 50 Americans were onboard?

Are you sure it's those two directly responsible based off of a tweet?

They would blow themselves to smithereens just changing out rocket fuel components.

It's more concrete than who IRAN blames. Some guy named Operator Error.

So Iran is saying (passing the buck) there is an even more evolved and totally unknown SUPER Terrorist community that exist within its borders. They are light years beyond the ordinary homegrown 'simpleton' Terrorist community it fomates/encourages that operate in foreign countries. So stealthy these operatives; even they cannot identify them/arrest them before they marry their daughters.
