Is Donald Trump RESPONSIBLE For UIA Flight 752 Deaths?

There is no doubt that Iran shot down UIA Flight 752, but is US President Donald Trump responsible for the circumstances that led to this tragedy? Let’s find out…

PS. Even Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau agrees with our assessment!

 

UIA Flight 752 : The Tragedy

Just after 6:14 AM on 8 January 2020, the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) shot down UIA Flight 752, killing all 176 people onboard.

It was just 5 hours after Iran launched rocket attacks on two US bases in Iraq, in retaliation for the assassination of Major General Qasem Soleimani.

At that point in time, the IRGC was on a “war footing”, prepared for a retaliatory strike by US forces.

According to IRGC Aerospace Defence Brigadier General Amir Ali Hajizadeh, a missile operator mistook UIA Flight 752 for a US cruise missile and fired two Tor M1 missiles, taking it down.

Is Donald Trump RESPONSIBLE For UIA Flight 752 Deaths?

It may seem insane to accuse US President Donald Trump of being responsible for the UIA Flight 752 tragedy.

After all, Iran had already admitted responsibility for shooting UIA Flight 752. Case closed.

But reflect on this for a moment – would that IRGC officer have fired the missile at UIA Flight 752, if Donald Trump was not US President number 45?

Consider these facts…

Before Trump became US President, Iran and the US had an agreement – the JCPOA (Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action), that not only stopped them from pursuing nuclear weapons for at least 15 years, but also led to the normalising of relations.

Ironically, Qasem Soleimani was a key figure in the fight against ISIS. His Quds Force actually helped American forces eradicate ISIS forces in Iraq.

But when he came into power, Donald Trump unilaterally walked out of the JCPOA agreement, ignoring the EU and six other countries that were signatories to it.

To their credit, Iran tried to comply with the JCPOA even after the US withdrawal, but the Trump Administration kept piling on sanctions and pressure on other countries to stop dealing with Iran.

He unnecessarily ratcheted up tensions with Iran, and in the days leading up to this disaster – illegally assassinated Qasem Soleimani – a military officer of a country that the US was not in war with – in a third country no less.

That, I believe, constitutes an act of war.

Without that “at war” mindset, would that Iranian missile operator have fired off that missile before verifying the identity of UIA Flight 752?

I honestly doubt so.

In short, Donald Trump did not pull the trigger on the missile that took down UIA Flight 752, but he sure was INDIRECTLY responsible for the circumstances that led to this tragedy.

To paraphrase a quote on the Internet – bad things happen when there’s an incompetent, psychotic liar in the White House.

 

Justin Trudeau Indirectly Blames Donald Trump For UIA Flight 752 Deaths

In an interview with Global News on 14 January 2020, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau stated that,

I think if there were no tensions, if there was no escalation recently in the region, those Canadians would be right now home with their families.

Yes, if Donald Trump did not escalate tensions with Iran recently, it wouldn’t have led to the conditions ripe for a trigger-happy SAM operator to let loose on Flight 752.
