Default This is basically a long commercial

But the actual action starts around 4:34.

"U.S. intelligence picked up signals of a radar being turned on, sources told CBS News. U.S. satellites also detected two surface-to-air missile launches, which happened shortly before the plane exploded, CBS News was told."

One needn’t ascribe to malice that which can be explained by simple incompetence.

Their economy was already hurting from sanctions. This is going to make that even worse.

The video definitely looks like a missile hit.

My guess is that it was an accidental shoot down- the result of a series of circumstances all coming together in a short period of time.

That said, we were told by some people that we could trust these incompetents with nuclear technology - sure, no problem.

I don’t have any military experience but I would imagine the Iranian air defense folks were scared as all get out.

My thing is how are these videos are perfectly angled and positioned before they even hit? Like how? Unless this aircraft had been missed by previous missiles? Or perhaps it was already hit? Something I just find weird about it.

At some point more evidence should come out, shrapnel damage, and data recorder info.

I can imagine they were scared witless, thinking we’d lumber in as easy targets.
