A 19-second video posted online and reportedly verified by The New York Times claims to show an Iranian missile striking Ukraine International Airlines Flight 752, shortly before it crashed on Wednesday, killing all 176 people on board — including 63 Canadians.

There's no question that is was shot down. The question is why would they shoot down a plane carrying their own citizens?

Don't get me wrong, I think it was unintentional.

If they wanted the people on that flight dead, they could have killed them on the ground. I agree, they screwed up big time.

Something like that. It makes the Iranian military look like a joke.

The video of that plane being shot down was chilling.

That is more than just a possibility. But, why were foreign airlines using that airport so soon after the rocket attacks when everything is on high alert. Iran's military messed up big time, but there is enough blame to spread around.

I'll think about the why and repercussions of the plane being shot down at a later date. Right now I'm grieving for my friends and the Iranian community in this city who I've gotten to know and like a lot. Sunday at 3 pm I'm attending a vigil at the U of A for the victims.

Women in the Islamic Revolutionary Army. That would be like Jews serving in the SS.
