Trump And Flight PS572

What puzzles me about all this is Trump’s reaction.

If he were true to his past persona, he would be very much angrier and vowing vengeance, but his reaction seems almost calm and very measured.

Perhaps, he knows for certain, that it was a tragic accident. After all the UK, US, Canada and Ukraine seem to be saying similar things.

Someone or something, seems to have got Trump to see sense!

Melania, Justin, Boris, Emmanuel, Dominic or Angela? Or was it the Italian guy, who does his hair?

  1. Don’t think he is seeing sense, over this or anything else really. I imagine he is relieved that no-one is blaming him for the crash. I don’t think the crash was actually his fault, but there are plenty who jump on that bandwagon.

  2. The US reckons their satellite traced the heat trail from the ground-to-air Tor missile. Someone on the ground appears to have filmed it on an iPhone too. You could see the exhaust of a possible missile heading to the plane, a mid-air explosion shortly followed by a massive fireball as the plane hit the ground.

    A mighty cock-up on the Iranian side. Probably some nervous raw recruit on the missile battery launched it in error. I imagine his funeral has already taken place.

    • I suspect the Americans knew fairly soon. Let that be a warning to anybody who thinks about firing missiles!
