I honestly don’t know how spokespeople can stand in front of an audience, and barefaced lie with such conviction.
Foreign Minister Javad Zarif apologised to the families of the victims but laid part of the blame on the US. "Human error at a time of crisis caused by US adventurism led to [this] disaster," he said.
I get that Donald Trump kicked this all off but it was Iran who decided to blow up some patches of mud on US base with their missiles. They chose when to attack the mud and their missiles later scored this own goal.I see there already partly blaming the US for the shooting down of the plane
Im getting fed up of this happening. Why are we allowing passenger jets to fly over hostile countries. It should be stopped, period.
And secondly we need to step up the sanctions and military intervention in these countries again. They cannot be trusted and that is never going to improve.
It wasnt flying over, it was a commercial flight taking off from Iran.
The US have shot down a commercial airliner previously:
Becuase this never happens to the west?This whole mess makes Iran look completely incompetent. Stampede deaths at a funeral, downing a passenger jet...
