Opinion: Evidence Suggests Iran Shot Down Boeing 757, Killing All Aboard

Iran quickly came out after the crash and announced "technical issues" were to blame for the crash. Way too soon and how would they know?

Last night during Iran’s retaliation attack against a U.S. airbase in Baghdad, a Ukrainian Boeing 737 passenger flight carrying over 170 souls fell out of the sky.

At 11:23 PM EST, The Spectator Index reported a breaking news story about Ukraine International flight #752, a Boeing 737,  with over 170 people aboard that crashed outside of Tehran as it was leaving the Tehran Airport. The flight was reportedly bound for the Ukrainian capital, Kyiv. There are conflicting reports about the number of passengers aboard the plane ranging from 168 to 180 + crew. All passengers are dead.

It’s wildly believed that Iran shot the plane out of the sky believing it to be a U.S. attack.

Do you think Iran would shoot-down an international flight without U.S. citizens aboard?

Iran quickly came out after the crash and announced “technical issues” were to blame for the crash. Way too soon and how would they know?

The Last Refuge tweeted:

“Iran said it was ‘technical issues’ way too soon for it to have been ‘technical issues’. The more likely explanation was accidental anti-aircraft defenses not deactivated in an area where Iran has some sensitive infrastructure coincidental 2 the flight-path. A tragic mistake.”

You’ll notice in the footage below that the plane is barreling from the sky and looks like it’s on fire.

This is the aftermath of the wreckage:

“This looks like shrapnel damage on the Ukraine International Airlines flight PS752, which went down near Tehran tonight. Pictures 2 and 3 show shrapnel damage on MH17, shot down by an SA-11 Buk surface-to-air missile in 2014.”


–If there was an engine fire the plane would’ve slowed down, and the pilots would’ve made their way back to the airport.

–It kept climbing.

–Fire suppression systems would’ve prevented the plane from turning into a ball of fire. –

–Shrapnel damage on wings & fuselage.

“Aviation analyst Todd Curtis: “The airplane was heavily fragmented which means either there was an intense impact on the ground or something happened in the sky.”

Look at the map. The Iranian Malard missile launch site is right in front of the flight path of the Ukrainian flight.

“wouldnt surprise me at all if they shot it down considering what unbelievable bone heads they are.”

And now we’re learning that Iran will not turn over the plane’s black box. Why not?

“BREAKING: Iran says it will not hand black box of crashed plane over to Boeing”

Iran will not give the black box of the crashed Ukrainian airliner to planemaker Boeing, the head of Tehran’s civil aviation organization was quoted as saying on Wednesday.

Ali Abedzadeh also said it was not clear which country Iran would send the box to so that its data could be analyzed, semi-official Mehr news agency reported.
