US officials are now confident Iran shot down a Ukrainian jetliner with 176 people on board. Sources say US intelligence picked detected infrared blips of two missile launches, followed by the blip of an explosion.

The Ukrainian jetliner crashed during takeoff in Tehran early Wednesday, killing 176 people — mostly Iranian and Canadian.

Somehow, I don’t think the Iranians or Canadians are going to blame Iran, even though it was their missile. I suspect they will rightfully blame Trump for creating the crisis in the first place.
