This opinion piece will contain speculation or “conspiracy theory,” and so you can move on if you don’t like that sort of thing…

I’m not claiming that Iran fired any missiles at the Ukrainian passenger plane; that’s the New York Times and Bellingcat. But, assuming their video shows unaltered footage of Iranian anti-aircraft SAMs shooting down Ukraine Flight 752, then we must ask the obvious question: WHY?

The very first possible reason screams out, and that is that Iran must have thought it was an attacking warplane over Tehran, and with only moments to decide, they shot quickly. But, why would the Iranian military think that a civilian plane was an attacking warplane? That is the big question in this possible scenario, and it represents a major threat to civil aviation worldwide.

Other civilian airliners around the Middle East have been put at risk recently in the following way. In December, 2018, Russia accused Israel of using civilian airliners as cover for their attacking warplanes:

“The provocative actions of the Israeli air force … directly threatened two airliners,” Russian defence ministry spokesman Igor Konashenkov said in a statement.

In another incident, Israeli planes attacked Syrian ground targets in a way that the Russians said caused Syria’s air defense missiles to strike a Russian surveillance plane that was in the same area. This air defense response killed fifteen Russian airmen.

“The [Russian] spokesman accused Israeli pilots of “using the Russian airplane as a cover”, putting it “in the line of fire coming from Syrian air defence systems”.

These two precedents establish that military strategists are always looking for ways to game the enemy into using his anti-aircraft missiles against him, so to speak. Getting the enemy to shoot down the wrong plane is a standard military ploy, and perhaps a war crime.

Civilian planes are identified by their radio signatures. They continually broadcast data identifying them as friendly, or, in the case of military aircraft, they can turn off transponder signals and be unknown—giving away as little information to the enemy as possible.

Radio jamming has been around since the second World War. It is not impossible that the Ukraine jet was targeted for some sort of radio jamming in order to confuse the Iranians into thinking it was an attacking enemy warplane and quickly shooting it down. The incident would clearly be blamed on Iran alone, as the “conspiracy theory” is nearly impossible to prove, and the Iranians aren’t going to admit to shooting missiles at all, just as they have denied the use of missiles ever since the incident occurred.

This scenario seems plausible enough. While pundits allude to Iran making a “mistake,” this absolves any conspirators who may have engaged in deliberate radio jamming in order to bait the Iranians into shooting down the wrong plane. The propaganda value of casting the Iranians as monsters, and also angering Ukrainians, Canadians, and other nations which had civilians on board, are clear motives to inspire such a crime.

Lastly, it makes no sense that Iran would warn the US about its missile launches hours in advance in order to avoid casualties, while deliberately shooting down a plane load of innocent civilians on the same day.

Russian Su-25 jet downed in Syria, pilot killed – Defense Ministry

A Russian Su-25 jet has crashed in Idlib province in north-western Syria, the Russian Defence Ministry confirmed, adding that it was probably shot down by MANPAD. The pilot ejected but was killed by militants on the ground.

Russia to treat US jets in Syria as ‘targets’ after America guns down first regime warplane

 

Washington said the jet had dropped bombs near US-backed forces but Damascus said the plane was downed while flying a mission against Isis militants.

Russia’s Defence Ministry said the suspension of its communication line with the Americans would begin immediately.

Dutch media sue govt, demand it release full info on MH17 crash

That multi-nation secret deal to keep the findings secret is apparently all true. The Kiev Nazi coup regime of Yatsenyuk has veto power over releasing any findings.

The Netherlands Broadcasting Foundation (NOS); the Dutch subsidiary of the European TV, radio and production company RTL Group; and the Dutch daily Volkskrant have joined forces to appeal the Netherlands Security and Justice Ministry’s refusal to make public “many documents” concerning the Malaysian Airlines MH17 crash in Eastern Ukraine last year, NOSsaid in a press release.

From the start it has appeared the Kiev junta had deliberately shot down the airliner in order to demonize their opponents, the Russian-backed separatists in the east, those who reject their violent coup of February 2014. Plenty of evidence suggests the coup regime deliberately cooked up this atrocity, and the most glaring piece of the puzzle is an apparent PSYOP, one which appears at the NY Times:

Kiev’s evidence of militia’s responsibility for airliner crash faked – expert

A detailed reading of what was “faked” sheds light on what actually happened. It also points at premeditation and cold blooded mass murder. The NY Times and western corporate press claim that these audio clips are:

“phone calls between rebels and Russian officers after the downing of Malaysia Airlines 17.
-NY Times

29906170001_3682489313001_video-still-for-video-3682467481001

In fact audio analysis shows that the calls were not about MH-17 at all, but were recorded the previous day concerning the downing of an SU-25 fighter plane some 60 miles away…

“At the same time, the name of the town of Yenakiyevo is clearly heard in the tape. However, the town is located about 100 km (60 miles) from the settlement of Snezhnoye where the Malaysian Boeing-777 airliner crashed.

Bezler said the talk had really taken place but the he had talked about a Ukrainian attack aircraft shot down by the militia above Yenakiyevo a day before the Malaysian airliner crash.”
-Pravda

So in the case of Pravda vs. the New York Times the American public is obviously going to (mindlessly) side with the US propaganda organ and completely ignore the actual evidence: the recordings exist and are up for anyone to analyze. The US “intelligence community” (sic) has been conspicuously silent about this psyop.

I have called it a PSYOP because it was obviously used to confuse the rebels and broadcast to them so that they would believe this fabricated recording concerned MH-17. Rebels in the field were then interviewed with what seem to be incriminating statements. The rebels themselves fell for the PYSOP. However, the recording was never true in the first place. It concerned a different shoot down of a different plane!

Add to this the memorandum of understanding that the Dutch have signed with the Ukrainian coup regime–that the Nazi junta has veto power over releasing the final report to the public–and we have very suspicious circumstances indeed.
