Iran shot down a Ukrainian airliner. It occurred during the nation’s missile attack against U.S. forces in Iraq that blessedly ended with zero American casualties. The world’s largest sponsor of terrorism had to save face after President Trump ordered a drone strike that killed Maj. Gen. Qasam Soleimani, commander of Quds force, and the region’s grim reaper. He was a top terrorist and how he’s an ashtray. For those who love this country, it’s a win. It’s a good thing. It was a good kill. It was a lawful kill. For the ‘hate America’ crowd—we call them Democrats—they’re acting as if the Iranian version of Gandhi was blasted half-way to hell. There were worries about war. The missile attack allowed liberal media outlets to hyperventilate for about 36 hours before Iran decided to stand down. There was no war. There is no war. Most of the world slept through World War III—and the liberal media was once again…wrong.
It was a win for Trump. Time magazine editor Ian Bremmer, who is no MAGA supporter, said that on CNN this week since it reestablished the red lines and deterrence that was degraded by the Obama administration. There is now a window for diplomacy to resume. Even with a partisan impeachment plot against him, Trump is still riding high and scoring wins. The Left probably can’t sand that which is why they’re peddling this piece of misinformation that a Ukrainian airliner shot down by Iran outside of the capital Tehran was due to crossfire. We didn’t fire back. This is fake news that some members of the media and the 2020 Democratic field were peddling. Some threw a tantrum when they got dragged for it. Oh, and they lectured us of course, like CNN’s Susan Hennessey:

176 completely innocent lives, killed in the crossfire of reckless escalation. Just an unbelievable tragedy. https://t.co/LTI0kfHPrx— Susan Hennessey (@Susan_Hennessey) January 9, 2020
Innocent civilians are now dead because they were caught in the middle of an unnecessary and unwanted military tit for tat.— Pete Buttigieg (@PeteButtigieg) January 9, 2020
My thoughts are with the families and loved ones of all 176 souls lost aboard this flight. https://t.co/zWaVgWxfdL
Guys, "how dare you blame us and not Iran" and "debate my definition of crossfire, coward" right-wing twitter is just pretending. The answer is to roll your eyes and ignore them. They'll tire themselves out eventually.— Susan Hennessey (@Susan_Hennessey) January 9, 2020
When I say "well-articulated" I don't mean a bunch of people on Twitter warned about it. I mean it is a known part of the theory of escalation and is a form of risk of which all national security decision makers are actively aware.

Rep. Jackie Speier (D-CA) outright blamed Trump for the downed airliner (via Free Beacon):
Rep. Jackie Speier (D., Calif.) on Thursday said that Iran's shooting down of a Ukrainian airliner was collateral damage from President Donald Trump's killing of Iranian general Qassem Soleimani.
"If what is being projected is true, this is yet another example of collateral damage from the actions that have been taken in a provocative way by the president of the United States," Speier told CNN.
CNN anchor Wolf Blitzer had asked Speier if she believed Iran confused the commercial flight for a U.S. military plane, suggesting that "it certainly sounds like it was a mistake by the Iranians." Speier did not mention Iran in her response, only implicating Trump in the downed flight.
Trump killed a terrorist. Iran was put in its place. And now, in their anger, the Left is using dead civilians who were shot down by Iran to blame Trump. This is the definition of insanity. It’s Trump Derangement Syndrome. I’m so sorry this is happening to you, liberal America. Not really though.
