It may be that US/NATO/MOSSAD/ISIS/UKROPS shot down the plane in a false flag op to further inflame world opinion against Iran. Expecting Iran to deny their involvement, a powerful, emotional and ongoing good guy/bad guy drama could be created and exploited. By Iran’s acceptance of responsibility, it shuts off the propaganda narrative before it gets started. Whether they actually did it or not, by taking responsibility, it becomes moot and the subject is closed. A smart move.
[—] The downing of PS-752 belongs in the same file as the JFK hit, Operation Northwoods, Gulf of Tonkin, October Surprise, Iran Contra, Kuwaiti incubators, Serb aggression, 9/11, Iraq WMD’s, Libyan R2P, Maidan, Russian annexation of Crimea and occupation of Donbass. In other words, complete bullshit.
