If Iran knows that it was an accidental shooting, it's understandable that they would not want any help from Boeing — which should be allowed to help if asked.

Yup, we’ve shot down one Iranian airliner by mistake, the Russians have shoot down Korean and Malaysian airliners by mistake, so if the Iranians indeed did this then they would be on par with at least us.

Trudeau says yes, it was shot down.

(CNN) Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said Thursday that Canadian officials have intelligence from their own sources and Canada's allies that shows Ukrainian International Airlines flight 752 was shot down by an Iranian surface to air missile. "This may have been unintentional," Trudeau said.

Actions have consequences..If trump had not assassinated the General, Iran would have not shot off rockets I.e. ended up shooting down the Boeing plane. 176 dead people.

There were a large number (at least 50) of Canadians on that flight…

CBC.CA just spent an hour on this, but they seem to relish extended overkill.

Whomever in Iran pulled the trigger is the one legally responsible...as in Ukraine, someone panicked.

It should be amusing to see what contortions that regime goes through to claim it wasn't their fault, though.

I'm betting some variation of blaming Israel.

Hopefully this tragedy will give commercial airlines and pilots more reason to err on the side of safety. When fingers are on triggers and launch buttons, stay on the damn ground.

Only four days ago, Iranian President Hassan Rouhani had reminded the world that the United States once accidentally shot down an Iranian passenger jet. He invoked the incident in response to a Trump tweet.

Those who refer to the number 52 should also remember the number 290.
Never threaten the Iranian nation.
