I mean, come on.
Our closest ally repeats our enemy’s talking points. This is what Iran wants the world to believe.
Fortunately, Iranian citizens, unlike the leader of Canada, are not fooled and are in the street protesting against the people who actually shot down the plane.
From the Washington Examiner:
Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, 48, said on Monday that the United States bears responsibility for Iran’s downing of a Ukrainian airplane last Wednesday, which killed all 176 passengers on board.
“I think if there were no tensions, if there was no escalation recently in the region, those Canadians would be right now home with their families,” Trudeau said in an interview on Monday.
Fifty-seven Canadians were among those killed last Wednesday after the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps fired a ballistic missile at a commercial Boeing 737 plane. The strike occurred during an Iranian attack on Iraqi air bases housing U.S. military personnel. Trudeau said the incident is “something that happens when you have conflict and war.”
“Innocents bear the brunt of it, and it is a reminder why all of us need to work so hard on deescalation, moving forward to reduce tensions and find a pathway that doesn’t involve further conflict and killing,” Trudeau continued.
