Canadian PM Steps Into the Mud of Slander Blaming Iran For Boeing Crash

Iran’s Foreign Minister Calls out Bluff

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s recent claim that Ukraine’s flight PS752 was shot down by Iranian rockets according to “secret intelligence” has provoked the Iranian government to respond by calling out the bluff which has spread like wildfire in the recent 48 hours.

On Wednesday, Trudeau stated: “We have intelligence from multiple sources, including our allies and our own intelligence. The evidence indicates that the plane was shot down by an Iranian surface-to-air missile. This may well have been unintentional.” Canadians represented 63 of the 176 victims who died in the crash and so the words of the Canadian government obviously carries more emotional weight than other nations in this matter.

Trudeau’s claims, (along with those made minutes earlier by the UK’s Boris Johnson to the same effect) represent the first serious attempt to legitimize the gossip which first originated by anonymous sources within the US State Department hours after the crash occurred. After making these remarks, Trudeau stated that he had shared this secret intelligence with the government of Ukraine as well as the Dutch government that had conducted the investigation into the 2014 Malaysia Airlines Flight 17 which crashed over Eastern Ukraine and which recent information from Ukrainian whistle-blower Lt. Col. Vasily Prozorov proved was actually caused by the Azov-connected Poroshenko government working alongside British Intelligence.

While sufficient evidence has not yet come to light in the current case, the parallels between this week’s tragedy and MH17 cannot be ignored.

Iran’s Foreign Minister Ali Rabiei responded to US, British and Canadian assertions of “secret evidence” by inviting all countries who have lost citizens in the disaster to come to Tehran in order to investigate the black box (which they rightfully refused to hand over to US officials). Rabiei stated on Thursday: “All these reports are a psychological warfare against Iran. All those countries whose citizens were aboard the plane can send representatives and we urge Boeing to send its representative to join the process of investigating the black box.”

Iran stated that all evidence gathered should be “published and publicized to the world.”

“Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s recent claim that Ukraine’s flight PS752 was shot down by Iranian rockets according to “secret intelligence”. Which secret intelligence? US? Canadian? Israeli? Ukrainian? What did Canadians do on an Ukrainian plane in Teheran? Spying for the Canadian secret services or for big brother US? Hm, hm. One wonders. Of course, Trudeau will never pass up an opportunity of showing his photogenic dressman’s face on photos and making a fool of himself by blabbing nonsense. A Canadian backwood hick who polished his image, in “Armani” clothes. A sort of standup comedian, posing as wise guy. Trudeau… Read more »

Trudeau is full of shit, a pathological liar + a corrupt US lackey….his so-called ‘sources’ are probably the usual “We lie, we cheat, we steal” sources – His statements of blatant BS lies are complete worthless and once again he displays what a pathetic disgrace he is for the once great nation of Canada – Now a shithole with a rotten US-Puppet Regime.

So, now he’s been proven right. However anyone with a spine would have laid the real blame at Trump’s feet. It was indeed foolish American adventurism as the principal cause.

Two-faced Trudeau. I wonder if people watched enough video of him someone will catch an eye contact slip and see his snake eyes. He’s a puppet of just about everyone: oil lobby; neo-cons; US imperialists; financial industry; and anyone with the money. A beard to their true intentions.

Why in the world would Iran fire an anti missile missile at its own missiles. The obvious answer is that they would not. But the suggestion of the airliner being brought down by a missile raises the prospect that the missile was a patriot missile fired from Iraq that brought down the plane. After all we know that the patriot system is inneffective against missiles but it could down a slow moving and high flying passenger jet. There is another reason to question this whole thing. Within minutes of the crash the usual suspects ( The US Dept. of State)… Read more »

I was under the impression that Trudeau had said not to jump to conclusions until more details emerge. So how much of all this is news and how much of all this is sensationalism???
