As my colleague Nick Arama highlighted earlier, Iran now admits that it was responsible for shooting down the passenger plane that took the lives of 176 people.
“A sad day. Preliminary conclusions of internal investigation by Armed Forces: Human error at time of crisis caused by US adventurism led to disaster. Our profound regrets, apologies and condolences to our people, to the families of all victims, and to other affected nations,” he tweeted.

Iran launched the missile that brought the plane down but being the asinine self-victimizing government that it is, Iran still managed to blame the United States.
By itself, this would be beyond ridiculous, but when you think you’ve found something that is so stupid as to be unbelievable, the American Democrats show up to show you how it’s really done.
Rep. Jackie Speier blamed President Donald Trump for the jetliner being shot down, calling it “collateral damage” from Trump’s actions.

Democrat mayor and 2020 candidate Pete Buttigieg also signaled his anti-war virtue, making it seem like the U.S. had provoked this missile strike on an innocent jetliner.
“Innocent civilians are now dead because they were caught in the middle of an unnecessary and unwanted military tit for tat. My thoughts are with the families and loved ones of all 176 souls lost aboard this flight,” he tweeted.

Saira Rao, who never managed to achieve office — thank God — ditched any kind of window dressing and straight-up said that all 176 dead passengers aboard the plane have their blood on Trump’s hands.
“Every single one of the 176 passengers on the Ukrainian plane that went down was murdered by Donald Trump. We have to start calling a thing a thing and stop pretending that this man and America are not the biggest terrorists in the world,” she tweeted.

You would think that this is unconscionable. You’d think that this is ludicrous. You’re right, but these are Democrats and unconscionable and ludicrous is pretty much what they do best.
Just to recap, the missile strike from Iran was in retaliation for the assassination of General Qassem Soleimani by the United States. That assassination was the result of Soleimani being responsible for a myriad of terrorist attacks against the U.S. and its allies over a long period, and very recently with the attack on the U.S. embassy in Baghdad.
The United States eliminated a terrorist leader who has caused so much death and destruction that you’d think everyone on the planet would be cheering in the streets over it. To be fair, the majority of us are, but the left has been in mourning.
Every politician, activist, celebrity, and media figure that dedicates themselves to leftism has been rending garments and gnashing teeth over the death of Soleimani. TIME magazine even released an article on how to teach your kids that Soleimani was sort of a good guy while Donald Trump is a militaristic maniac with an itchy trigger finger and a penchant for ignoring sound advice from his advisors.
Here we have definitive proof and an admission that Iran killed 176 people and the Democrat’s reaction is to feign heartache while using it as a weapon to attack Trump with? What in the 9th circle of hell is the deal?
The deal is that Democrats don’t understand the definition of innocent life. As I wrote yesterday, the agenda comes first and if you’re in the wrong place at the wrong time, then you’re just collateral damage.
If you’re a fetus who needs to be sacrificed to keep abortion alive and well, so be it. If your woes and troubles don’t fall in with the cares of the Democratic party due to your identity or position, then tough luck.
Democrats are willing to spend your life for political purposes, and here we see it live on display as they see a state funder of terrorism shoot down a plane that carried 176 souls that had 176 families that will never get their family member back, and their response is to say “yeah that sucks! Orange man bad, am I right?”
I end a lot of articles like this, but I end it with this message now more sincerely than ever.
