Propaganda and Lies: Iran and Ukrainian Flight PS752

Share

Re: Ukrainian Flight PS752, we must consider whether the US hacked the Ukrainian plane transponder to provoke Iran into shooting down this passenger jet. Above: wreckage from the jet. Image credit: Wikipedia

There is more to the story about Ukrainian Flight PS752

which Iran accidentally shot down on January 8th – right after the US (with Israel’s help) had assassinated Qassem Soleimani. Here is the cardinal rule about government—everything it says through its spokespersons, hired guns, public relations adepts, and the mockingbird corporate media should be considered a self-serving lie, or at best a distortion hammered into shape to fit a predefined agenda. For instance, we should question who is ultimately responsible for the shootdown of the Ukrainian airliner in Tehran following the assassination of Qassem Soleimani.

Former CIA military intelligence officer Philip Giraldi believes there is a possibility Ukraine International Airlines flight PS752 was a false flag designed to put further pressure on the government of Iran and feed the USAID “opposition” to the mullahs.

Giraldi writes “there just might be considerably more to the story involving cyberwarfare carried out by the U.S. and possibly Israeli governments.”

What seems to have been a case of bad judgements and human error does, however, include some elements that have yet to be explained. The Iranian missile operator reportedly experienced considerable “jamming” and the planes transponder switched off and stopped transmitting several minutes before the missiles were launched. There were also problems with the communication network of the air defense command, which may have been related.

Giraldi explains the

…SA-15 Tor defense system used by Iran has one major vulnerability. It can be hacked or “spoofed,” permitting an intruder to impersonate a legitimate user and take control. The United States Navy and Air Force reportedly have developed technologies “that can fool enemy radar systems with false and deceptively moving targets.” Fooling the system also means fooling the operator. The Guardian has also reported independently  how the United States military has long been developing systems that can from a distance alter the electronics and targeting of Iran’s available missiles.

Naturally, this possibility is not even mentioned by the corporate war propaganda media, with the notable exception of The Guardian. Instead, we are pelted with tweets and news articles purporting to show just how angry the Iranian people supposedly are over the shootdown, accidental or otherwise.

The establishment media, long-serving as war propagandists, would have you believe the people of Iran care more about the shootdown of an passenger airliner than the four-decade long  economic war against them waged by the USG, Israel, and Saudia Arabia—a war that has the possibility of breaking out into a conflict that will kill far more than the 176 who died when two missiles hit flight PS752.

This reminds me of a murderous trick pulled by the Israelis. In September 2018, Syrian anti-aircraft defenses shot down a Russian military plane near the Hmeimim airbase where the Russians stage military operations against USG supported terrorists in Syria (and invited, along with Iran and Hezbollah, to do so by Syria, unlike the illegal American occupation and the apparently endless Israeli air raids).

“A Russian military spokesman said Israeli F-16 pilots were using the Russian plane as a shield while carrying out missile strikes against targets in Syria’s Latakia province and put it in the line of fire from Syrian anti-aircraft batteries,” The Guardian reported at the time.

Russia’s defence minister, Sergei Shoigu, told a senior Israeli official that Israel bore “full responsibility” for the incident and the death of the Russian crew, a military spokesman said later on Tuesday. Israel’s ambassador in Moscow was summoned to the Russian foreign ministry over the incident.

Putin let it go, however, realizing that pushing the issue too far would worsen the conflict and possibly result in further Russian causalities.

Such caution, however, cannot be attributed to the USG and certainly not Israel. Bibi Netanyahu, the Israeli PM, said Bashir al-Assad and the Syrians were solely responsible for the attack.

No such caution or diplomacy can be expected from the USG and its current loudmouth know-nothing president, Donald Trump. The death of nearly two hundred people is simply an excuse to whip up hysteria and push forward the covert war against Iran.

First and foremost, when you read the “news” dispensed by the war propaganda media, you should assume, unless otherwise proven and verified independently, that what they say about Iran and the Middle East is nothing less than a carelessly and hastily assembled pack of lies, distortion, and omissions, all designed to destroy Iran and kill thousands, possibly millions of innocent men, women, and children.

Yes a great article about war propaganda and lies. When will the the American people and people of the World wake up!? It is so frustrating, because people I know call truth crazy and lies truth.

It was a good article until the author decided to slander the President. Give him credit for fighting the Deep State. Who would you rather have in office: Hillary?

Hi Bill,
Kurt is rightly calling out Trump’s warmongering tendencies. Yes, Hillary would have been horrible, but that doesn’t make Zionist-owned Trump great just because he is better than Hillary.

The last good president was JFK, who had sided with Martin Luther King (MLK) to support the civil rights movement. Both men were assassinated.!!!!!

All the rest have been ‘Warmongers’.

Are Americans still giving Israel 4 billion per year?

This, i have been told is being paid for by taxes that US citizens pay.

You could say that these people get up in the morning do an eight hour shift in order to keep israelis in the comfort which they have now become accustomed to.

Mmmmm, i think i’d stay in bed.

Could the Soleimani assassination signaled “time to get out of Tehran” to subversives in Iran who boarded one of the first flights to Ukraine? Who were killed on the flight who might have been deep state agents in Iran?

How can a specific plane be deemed a threat, be shot down when it is climbing and has only been in the air 6 min. All accurate details to stories like this are given right after a situation happens The air traffic controller knows where all planes are, who they are and at what altitude they are flying and if they are coming or going.He sees them on radar and is in contact and has them all at appointed altitudes so they don’t run into each other. So some trigger happy gunner just decides to choose and just shoot one down? Wake up and think outside the box. IT WAS A SUICIDE BOMBER ON BOARD. Now somebody is squeezing Iran to claim responsibility. Why aren’t any bloggers seeing this and also asking the same obvious question?

Iran admitted they accidentally shot down that jet! Yet this writer is so anti-American, he accuses the United States of shooting down that Ukraine jet, filled with Iranians and Canadians, even though he has ZERO evidence! All evidence, plus the confession of Iran, point to the reality that Iran shot it down.

Makia Freeman January 23, 2020 - 2:51 pm

I think it would be more accurate to say Kurt is anti-USG lies, aggression and deception rather than anti-American. Yes, Iran has admitted shooting it down, but the sheer amount of manipulation coming from the US-Israeli axis is overwhelming and is always a factor when looking at these kind of events.
