Iran Admits Shooting Down Passenger Airliner Killing 176, Proceeds to Blame Trump

The Iranian military killed more than a hundred of their own citizens.

Iranian state media admitted Friday that the nation’s military had shot down a passenger airliner that was departing Tehran on Wednesday, confirming the suspicions of many after initial reports claimed that the plane had crashed as a result of mechanical problems.

All 176 on board the Ukrainian-bound Boeing 737 perished in the crash, which took place on a night of heavy military tensions between the United States and Iran. Iran had fired missiles at Iraqi military bases housing American service members earlier in the day, in response to the killing of General Qassim Soleimani.

The Iranian state media statement on the incident calls the event an accident, stating that air defense personnel targeted the civilian airliner after it had turned towards a base of the Iranian Revolutionary Guards Corps.

Iran initially denied claims that the airliner was brought down intentionally. Videos of the burning aircraft show external damage, confirming the admission that the plane was struck by a surface-to-air launched missile.

A spokesman for Iran’s mullahs had earlier referred speculation that the plane was destroyed intentionally as propaganda, calling such claims a “big US lie.”

It’s fortunate that President Trump arranged for cooler heads to prevail, declining to escalate hostilities with the rogue Middle Eastern nation after their humble response to the elimination of Soleimani. Trump is said to have called off a series of devastating counter-attacks on Iran after the missile strikes, taking into account anti-war commentary from Tucker Carlson and finding out the missiles didn’t kill any American service members.

Iran’s bumbling and catastrophic killing of 176 people- a majority of whom were Iranian citizens- shows the consequences of the nation’s militaristic and aggressive foreign policy. Its people deserve better.

Poland’s Nationalist President Declares Election Victory Over Soros-Linked Liberal Challenger

A victory for European conservatives and nationalists.

Published

on

Polish President Andrzej Duda declared victory at a campaign rally following the initial exit polls in the nation’s presidential election on Sunday, as exit poll results showed him narrowly leading against Warsaw Mayor Rafal Trzaskowski.

Initial exit polls showed Duda, of the national conservative Law and Justice Party, leading by a slim margin of 50.4% to Trzaskowski’s 49.6%. Final results are expected Monday, but Duda’s campaign is apparently confident enough in their victory to declare triumph in the election.

The Polish election had included a national debate on cultural issues, with Duda accusing Trzaskowski of supporting the introduction of western-style homosexual political movements into Poland. Duda, a continental skeptic of the European Union broadly comparable to Hungary’s Viktor Orban, had described LGBTIA+ ideology as “more destructive” than the Soviet-style Communism many Poles had experienced in the 20th century.

Trzaskowski was also scrutinized for his extensive links to western political elites, having received a scholarship from globalist oligarch George Soros and attending the California Bilderberg Conference.

If Duda’s claim of election night victory holds, his reelection as Polish president will serve as an embarrassment to the bureaucrats of the European Union, potentially forcing them to come to the table and negotiate concessions with Central European leaders such as Duda and Orban who insist upon their national sovereignty.

Duda is thought of as a European ally of President Donald Trump, having been the first global leaders to visit the White House after the coronavirus pandemic. Poland is also one of the few NATO countries to meet their treaty spending commitment, spending more than 2% of its GDP on its armed forces.

Thank you to all my fellow Poles who voted for me and cast their votes. I want to thank you with all my heart because this turnout shows how much you care about our country,” said Duda at the election rally.
