Pete Buttigieg says That the Iranian Shoot-Down of a Ukrainian Airliner is Trump’s Fault

One of the more horrific incidents that accompany the threat display Iran made against the United States military by firing missiles into bases in Iraq where American troops were deployed was the crash of a Ukrainian airliner at the Tehran airport. All 176 passengers and crew aboard the Boeing 727 perished. They included 82 Iranians, 63 Canadians, 11 Ukrainians, 10 Swedes, four Afghans, and three British citizens. At first, the official story coming out of Iran was that the airliner crashed due to mechanical problems. Then a more sinister explanation came to light, as USA Today Explains.

“The Ukrainian jet that crashed this week after taking off from Tehran appears to have been downed by an Iranian surface-to-air missile.

“Intelligence indicates the Iranian military accidentally shot down the Ukrainian airliner with a Russian-supplied anti-aircraft missile, according to a U.S. official who was not authorized to speak publicly. All 176 aboard the Boeing 737 were killed.”

The fault appears to have been with trigger happy Iranians, thinking that the airliner was part of an American retaliation raid in the wake of the missile attack.

“U.S. intelligence sensors showed Iranian air-defense radar locked onto the passenger plane, the official said. Iran’s military then launched two SA-15 surface-to-air missiles and brought the plane down in a fiery crash.”

Iran has refused to hand over the airliner’s black box and is bulldozing the crash site in an apparent attempt to remove all evidence of the shootdown. The official line coming from the Iranian government is that the story that it shot down the plane by accident is an “illogical rumor.”

Meanwhile, presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg is pretty sure that President Donald Trump is to blame for the destruction of the Ukrainian airliner and all who were inside it. The inference is that had Trump not executed the Iranian terrorist mastermind Gassim Soleimani, Iran would have not been obliged to have launched the missile barrage, and hence some nervous Iranian missile controller would not have fired on the airliner.

Buttigieg tweeted. “Innocent civilians are now dead because they were caught in the middle of an unnecessary and unwanted military tit for tat, My thoughts are with the families and loved ones of all 176 souls lost aboard this flight.”

Needless to say, Buttigieg’s statement is not sitting well with most people. Fox News explains that social media has erupted with fury.

Sen Ted Cruz, for example, tweeted, “Uh, Pete, they weren’t “caught in the middle.” They were shot down BY IRAN. Military incompetence by the leading state sponsor of terrorism. Just because Dems hate Trump doesn’t justify false equivalence w/ Iran. Soleimani was a brutal terrorist who killed hundreds of Americans.”

David French, of the Dispatch, a Never Trump media outlet, added, “Nope. Nope. Nope. Iran launched a missile strike against our troops and then blundered by shooting down a civilian airliner when it wasn’t even under attack. That’s the story. This is on Iran.”

Hot Air notes that Iranian denials aside, a video shows the moment that the Russian made missiles struck the airliner. Even so, Buttigieg’s view on the tragedy is being echoed by some in the media. Both seem to be reacting out of pure Trump hatred and the desire to score points against the president, according to the article.

The Hot Air article also raises some questions as to why the Ukrainian jet was even allowed to take off in the middle of a military crisis.

“Why was Tehran’s airport open on a night when they knew they were planning to fire missiles at American forces? The answer, seemingly, is that they didn’t want to forfeit the element of surprise by grounding flights ahead of an attack, never mind that there wasn’t much element of surprise regardless. But then, having assumed that risk, they somehow neglected to account for the presence of passenger flights overhead in operating their missile defense system. This wasn’t just a one-sided ‘crossfire,’ it was an example of Iran not knowing how to use its own ‘gun.’”

The article concludes by noting that Sen Ted Cruz has introduced a resolution congratulating the military and intelligence men and women who participated in the takedown of Someilani. The move is seen as clever in that it places Democrats in the position of either voting for the measure or maintaining their blame America first position.

    1. BUT ONE MUST ALWAYS KNOW , “THERE IS NO CURE FOR STUPID PEOPLE, AND WE SURE AS HELL HAVE A BUNCH OF THEM THAT WANT TO TAKE OVER OUR PRESIDENT’S PLACE IN THE WHITE UOUSE AND WE ALREADY HAVE MORE THEN WE NEED IN THE WHITE HOUSE ALONE.

    2. Why doesn’t this stupid ass do what he is suppose to do and take care of his State. He has not business snooping into national security issues. He is as bad a Warren, he just doesn’t have any idea on how to govern. Go away

      1. You know BUTIGE , you are a big AS HOLE,and many of us pray ,one this idiot like YOU never be a president , otherwise all DEMOCRATS they are IDIOTS, LIARS , in front w. that STUPID OLD B…..CH PELOSI , THAT IDIOT SCHIFF ,and the LIAR SHUMACER , ho have skin an his face to lie in TV. ON THE FACE OF the NATION ” FAIR TRIAL” . How can lie when Trump did nothing wrong and from beginning that old mummy Pelosi want to impeach HEM .I hope she got in hell as fast she can whit all her lays to gather.

  1. No number one they should not have been there at the time that they launch those missiles,
    Furthermore it’s not our Presidents fault for some other dictatorships lead into deadly activities that should have been restrained at best.

    1. PERHAPS IF OMAMA AND BIDEN HADN’T GIVEN IRAN 160 BILLION IN CASH TO BUY THESE MISSLES; THE WORLD CERTAINLY WOULD BE SAFER & THEY’RE WORRIES WOULD NOT BE THERE OR TRAGEDIES HAPPENING….

  2. Hey Buttkick: You are not patriotic ergo no way should you even think you are qualified to be President, the one person in this country who needs to be patriotic!

  3. Pete maybe you need another trip Military tour to the Middle East so you can really see what’s going on. For some reason which is political driven you have resorted to bashing our POTUS and forgot your oath to defend our country against all enemies. Being an Ex-Vet, Patriot and Trump supporter you should just focus on what you will do for our country vs try to blame our President. Shame on you for trying to blame President Trump for the Iran’s mistake or intentional shooting down of this passenger plane. Personally, I am questioning how the missiles were accidentally fired without human interaction? It is not beyond the capability of the evil Iranians to take an action like this to make America look bad that is how terrorists think. You could focus on other things rather than blame Trump for their action but that just further proves you fit the bill as a liberal and radical Demonrat (Swamp) who will do just about anything to remove a good POTUS.
    Again you and your fellow Democrats should
    be ashamed of your actions in the past 3 yrs.
    I hope and pray Trump will acquitted and re-elected in 2020 so real Americans can vote
    you shameful Democrats out of office. I recommend that you all find a Godly Church and repent of your sins
    Thank God and our POTUS that love our country. Trump 2020 MAGA

    1. WHAT WE THE PEOPLE OF OUR COUNTRY AND AROUND THE WORLD ,MAYBE SEEING TODAY , MAY NOT BE MUCH DIFFERENT THEN WHAT HAS TAKEN PLACE WITH OUR GODS ONLY SON JESUS ,AND THAT IS HOW THOSE IN POWER WE SEE TODAY ,AND THEIR WAYS OF ATTACKIG DONALD J. TRUMP FROM THE TIME WHEN THOSE TYPES OF EVIL PEOPLE GOTTEN TO KNOW HE WAS GETTING INTO THE RACE TO BECOMING OUR PRESIDENT, AND JUST AS THOSE IN POWER BACK DURING THE TIME WHEN JESUS WAS BORN , AND HOW THOSE IN POWER BACK THEN TRIED TO HAVE HIM KILLED AND DEAD FROM THE TIME HE WAS BORN , TO THE TIME ONE OF HIS OWN BETARYED HIM , AND THOSE IN POWER WE ARE SEEING TODAY ARE NO DIFFERENT ,THEN THOSE TYPES OF PEOPLE BACK THEN , AND THOSE TYPES OF PEOPLE MAY WANT TO TRY AND INFLUENCE SOMEONE IN TRUMPS PARTY WITH MONEY , IN A WAY OF HAVING TRUMP REMOVED FROM POWER.

    2. it’s tough to answer…i did not think the democrats were that stupid…..i was wrong…..NOw, hopefully, people will vote R for right or not vote if they do not want to be stupid and make a mistake and vote for a democrat; He’s another John Kerry…..

  4. Ad hominem: this is a homosexual no soldier will follow and is unelectable. He is just there to draw the pink vote to the Democrats, a party which should have disappeared in 2016.

    It makes no sense to criticize Trump in this way. Killing the terrorist from a non-state like Iran is justified but he will just be replaced with another goon. If it turns out that the general who was in charge of the blundering bombs will be the replacement and he was the one who should be punished, then the personell office will be canned.

    The Persian people should rise in revolt and throw out the Islamic nonsense. Go back to the magi and the Babylonians and Persians (Cyrus), they may be a little out of fashion (like the Hebrew monarchs and the OT), but at least they are indigenous to the country and could make good national heros. No need for atom bombs or anything other than a Swiss-style military, no need to export Islam, no need to translate the Coran, which should fill up the museums that were looted. Return the treasure to the museums. These were mostly terra cotta sculptures and Persian rugs anyway if they were like what is in the Louvre.

    Trump and the Pentagon are very consistent on their policy–no nukes, just trade. Where do the news media get their stupid ideas from? Crazy Nancy?

  5. HE MUST BE IN THE THROWS OF ORGASM TO COME UP WITH THAT FOOLISHNESS. WOULD SOMEONE PLEASE REMOVE WHATEVER HE HAS UP HIS BUTT SO HE CAN THINK CLEARLY.

  6. That is the STUPIDEST thing I’ve ever heard! Iran was hoping to blame the USA for it in hopes of starting a crisis or without saying it but was revenge for killing the General! Who knows how they think….

    1. Pete Buttgag, you are a sick person. You don’t have the sense that God gave to a baby donkey that doesn’t know not to look up when it’s raining. You are dumber than a rock. I pity your constituents.

  7. Little Petey has NO clue of how to protect the US against a country like Iran. If it wasn’t for the Billions that Obummer handed over to them they would likely not have the funds to carry on their nuclear program or to finance all the weapons that their military has today. SO little princess Butthead, get a life. He doesn’t have a hope in Hell of ever becoming President, thank God !

  8. Since the coming of Donald J.J. Trump (J.J. stands for Jim Jones of the Peoples Temple), we have found out that Donald J.J. Trump is and always has been nothing more than a street thug (and that is why his cabinet and administration is of the same! It is known as ‘Birds of a feather’!

    Yes, in all certain terms, Donald J.J. Trump has the blood of all 176 on the plane shot down by Iran. One person responded by saying they (the plane) should not have been there! BS!!!!!!! Iran should not have shot it down, and they admitted that they did. The ONLY reason the plane was shot down is because of Donald’s murder of the Iranian commander. Donald did not go through Congress to make such a decision, and the Constitution so states that all decisions that involve war are to be passed through Congress!

    Donald J.J. Trump is and has been lawless his entire life, and this is why Donald J.J. Trump has been involved in over 4,500 lawsuits!!! To be supportive of Donald J.J. Trump exhibits ignorance!!!

    1. Let me guess, 1) You voted for Hillary. Benghazi cover-up, National Security Violations cover-up, Clinton Foundation. cover-up, Uranium 1 Cover-up, Pay-for-play cover-up with State Department access in exchange for Clinton Foundation Donations. 2) Trump Beat Hillary and you think he stole the election and lost the popular vote. (News Flash! She lost the popular vote due to massive voter fraud in California and a few other states. Over 2.5 Million Democratic Voters have been cleansed from the roles in Southern California alone.) 3 She was a HORRIBLE CANDIDATE. She had to have Debbie W. Shultz rig the primary to be the nominee. Donald Trump is doing what he said he would, and we elected him for that. You didn’t get your way, you are sad. I did, this time, I’m glad. Too bad for you. By the way, what has the Democrat party gotten done for the country since taking the House? Nothing, not even a proposal? Okay.

    2. Ridiculous Leftist Tripe. I have lived through 67 years of American Presidents, and will tell you that President Donald Trump is the most effective President since John Fitzgerald Kennedy, who was killed by enemies within our own Government. He may not be a mincing Muslim sycophant like Obama, but Good Manners alone do not make an effective President. If he is a “Street Thug” for not involving a Congress infested with Enemies of the State, then we need at least four more years of such “Thugishness”. TRUMP – 2020 “Make America American Again!”

    3. Please, don’t scream at the sky when J.J. Trump wins again. Will you and Buttgig blame PRESIDENT TRUMP for your herpes too, you pathetic little man!

    4. Marshall, you are a moron. This maniacal murderer killed over 600 Americans and 1000s of his own people and you’re crying tears over him??? Did Bush get authorization to kill Hussein? No. Did Obama get authorization to kill Bin Laden? No. They, and Donald Trump are COMMANDERS AND CHIEFS OF THE ARMED FORCES. The Democrats screaming don’t care about what is happening to our troops, they just want the power over EVERYTHING AND EVERYONE. When are you all going to realize that these Democrats care about no one but themselves????

  9. Hey Pete go back to the gay bar and stay there.
    Trump had nothing to do with the airplane being shot down just like if you got aids it’s no ones fault but your own .
    Iran was thinking that plane was one of America’s planes and wanted to show they could blow it from the skies.
    Pete stick your head back in the sand that’s the only thing you can do right butt head .

  10. Pete has a demented mind. He has proven this almost daily by things he says and his behavior. He knows just about as much about this issue as he does the Word of God, the Holy Bible.

  11. Democrats are on Satan’s side, needing to get off of Satan’s side. The that maketh a lie, will be burned up, on the ;last day. God’s light will do that. Liars, will not inherit the earth.

  12. Democrats are on Satan’s side, needing to get off of Satan’s side. They that maketh a lie, will be burned up, on the last day. God’s light will do that. Liars, will not inherit the earth

  13. The Peter Principle states that in an organization or Bureaucracy, a person will rise (be promoted) to their point of incompetence. In that model, everyone in upper management will be great at the last job they had and an obstruction going forward. Sounds like Pete is a living Peter Principle.

  14. By BUTTG’s own reasoning SOCOMS like him R responsible 4 the downing of the passenger plane
    IE: The appeasement of the BHO administration provided the encouragement of the rads 2 run amok.
    If no money had been given they wouldn’t have had funds 2 purchase missiles.
    Lastly if the SOCOMS would stop constantly demonstrating discourse/division & treasonous favor 2 our enemies
    it would not embolden these rads..

  15. Well, Peter Buttigieg, according to your logic, Donald Trump is also at fault for making you a Homosexual pervert, as well, and I’ll bet that he didn’t consult Congress before committing that atrocity, either. The fact of the matter is that he finally took off the kid gloves when dealing with our Islamic enemies in the Middle East. Iran is not only an insignificant enemy but an incompetent one, and I sleep better at night knowing that Trump has sworn that they will never have nuclear weapons, also without Congress’ consultation. Imagine these Muslim buffoons “accidentally” triggering an H-Bomb rather than just shooting down a passenger airliner. Honestly, Peter, I would commend Mr. President if he were to launch a few low-yield nuclear weapons at these “Hot Spots” in the Middle East. All we need anyway is their oil fields, not their Jihad personalities, so, Nuke ‘Em. As in “Goodnight, Iran!”

  16. From a Can’t-idate who cannot even manage a small Indiana town, but thinks he can run the country better than Trump! This guy or girl who served in the Reserves and went to the Mideast, that does not say much for his Military experience. And so far from what I have heard, Alfred E Newman is about the same as the guy in the magazine. THE CLOWNS in the DEMWITT impeachment rank and file are real talent, Nadler is with Intelligence and Schiftless is in charge of Judiciary on impeachment, the Republicans in the Senate will eat them alive and spit them out! I expect the Senate to find no proof of President Trump doing anything that would cause the impeachment actions in the House. DISMISSED!

  17. Uhhh . . . I don’t THINK so! It was the IRANIANS that fired that missile, NOT POTUS Trump. Tell the so called “MAYOR” to get his FACTS straight. He’s NOT POTUS material. Don’t vote for him if you VALUE your country! Team Trump and his allies 2020.

  18. The only thing a moron queer like mayor peter lover is good for is sucking off his male lover! To us veterans he’s not even a real veteran. How he flew under the radar is a mystery. When he blames Trump for that airline disaster that Iran is solely responsible for he is actually blaming America, all of us. He’s now a traitor as far as we veterans are concerned. He needs to keep his dam mouth shut when he doesn’t know what he’s talking about, which is most of the time. Us veterans will now work a lot harder to defeat him at every turn! He’s a loser many times over.

    1. Bergdahl was a traitor too! Obrokeback traded his pathetic, leftist azz for 5 known terrorists. Maybe we can trade Buttgig for a couple of goats.

  19. Well, Butgig misplaced his brain a long time ago. He has no concept of how such technology works. You just don’t “accidentally” shoot a missile into the air thinking where it lands I do not know or care. The plane was targeted and anything else is BS.

  20. Someone needs to enlighten Bootyjug, a good liberal always blames the seller and manufacturer for the use of the weapon. Russia is at fault! Liberals should at least be consistent, and then they could logically blame Trump because to them he is a Russian agent. I would expect soon the liberal media will make this connection. Trump is trying to start a war with Iran to help the Russian economy. The whole thought the airliner crash is Trumps doing, is the same logic they use for blaming the gun manufacturer for gun violence. The only people that are held responsible for their actions are conservatives because liberals are just children, and now apparently the Iranian government and military are also in the same place, the Iranians so hate Trump, like Liberals, they cannot be held responsible for their attempts to kill Americans! Someone needs to tell the little mayor to grow up, that kind of talk is not president level that is the way a immature mind or a brainwashed person thinks! He will never be elected to anything more than “somewhere in Indiana” little city idiot. Bootyjug is do e.

  21. One thing old BOODYCHEK does not like to here his mail partners in the debates say to him when they are at the debates. “I got your back” and having a drink after the debate “give me a stiff one”. His/her husband doesn’t like that conversation either.

  22. They say, there is no medicine for being stupid…Pete, as all demorats’ candidates are in the same row…they are siding up with the terrorists, who killed hundreds of Americans and their allies…At least for Trump americans’ lives do matter and his response was right to Iran, not like Hillary let kill the best people in Bengazi…More and more people are convinced to vote Trump 2020!!

  23. That’s where you are wrong it’s the
    Democrats fault they are trying to coverup
    for the Biden’s and their illegal dealings
    with Terrorists and Drug Cartels.

  24. Hey Buttplug..we have a real man running our
    country…and I would rather look at Melanie for the next four years instead of the alternative you
    offer. Why don’t you and your honey go talk to
    them in Iran…they kind of frown on your lifestyle.
    And you are nothing but a little bitch for blaming
    Trump for the actions of morons in Iran.

  25. You would think that by now most Americans have come to the realization Democrats just do not want Trump or any Republican in the WH so they can take control and continue evil, immoral and corrupt actions. They have been doing it for Years probably when JFK was killed by you know who and it wasn’t Oswald!

  26. THIS ANTI-AMERICAN CAN GO F HIMSELF JUST SEND THIS ASSHOLE OVER THERE SINCE HE THINKS IT IS SO NICE EVERYONE WHO SUPPORTS OUR ENEMIES NEEDS TO BE DEPORTED TO THE ENEMIES SO THEY CAN LIVE THERE
