Everyone seems far too eager to declare this wasn’t terrorism. Both the Iranians and Ukrainians issued statements saying it wasn’t terrorism, which itself is odd so early on.
How many planes are fireballs in the sky, with clearly visible explosions recorded on video from the ground, without there being a bomb involved? If, and it remains a big if, the Iranian government was somehow responsible for the killing of 176 innocent people (63 of whom were Canadians visiting family), they will not have made any friends here today. I will be cautious, though. It certainly doesn’t appear there was anything in it for the Iranians to kill these people. I hope the truth comes out.
