Iran Blames The U.S. For Shooting Down The Ukrainian Passenger Plane
That's one heck of a spin. The Iranians are trying to avoid blame for accidentally shooting down a Ukrainian passenger plane. They claim it was due to U.S. aggression that they fired the missiles that killed the civilian plane killing 176 people and supposedly they are arresting everyone responsible. So I am sure that the Supreme Leader or President that ordered the attack are going to be arrested any minute now...
"Iran said Tuesday that dozens of people had been arrested over the Islamic Republic's apparently unintentional shooting down of a Ukrainian jetliner last week. The arrests come amid Iranian vows to fully and openly investigate the firing of the surface-to-air missile that downed the plane, killing all 176 people on board.
But while Iran confessed to shooting the jet down — three days after the fact and under intense international pressure — its president asserted Tuesday that the "root causes" of the tragedy were U.S. actions.
"It was the U.S. that caused such an incident to take place," Iran's state-controlled news agency Tasnim quoted President Hassan Rouhani as saying. The Iranian regime has blamed the Trump administration for ratcheting up tensions with the controversial decision to kill senior Iranian military commander Qassem Soleimani in a January 2 drone strike in Baghdad.

And what's worse our Northern ally is semi agreeing with them.
"The comments echo those from Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, who told Global News on Monday: “If there were no tensions, if there was no escalation recently in the region, those Canadians would be right now home with their families.”
Iran attacked our embassy in Iraq, so we took out the terrorist Soleimani, and then they fired 15 missiles at U.S. Forces. How is this our fault? We didn't tell them to attack our bases or embassy. What are we supposed to help them fire the missiles at us just to make sure they don't accidentally attack civilians? This is what they are saying when they blame us, that they can't be held responsible for their own actions because they were angry at us.
