There is a video of the plane on fire just before crashing . Missle strike evidence !
Of course the Ukrainian airplane was shot down by an Iranian missle...

I looked at several photos of ground debris, coming out early Thurs. morning. Many aircraft components showed remarkable similarities to like parts of MH17...notably relatively small and numerous 'punctures' reminiscent of a proximity explosion.

It is most likely an act of revenge of the Iraniens for the keeling of Sulemany.
and we saw that they don't care too much for human life, even of their own.

Adam, you should really proofread your post before posting, don’t you think? Iranians, killing, Soleimani are the correct spellings. Otherwise your credibility goes south.....

... also an undisclosed engine failure can cause 'punctures' like seen on these fotos. Please wait for the facts. Fotos from unknown sources are no facts.

I didn't purport them to be 'facts'. Also, punctures forward of the engines drastically reduces the probability of an 'uncontained' engine failure. Video showing the mid air engagement and resulting explosion and delayed (due to distance) concussion 'boom' further suggests a missile strike. Iran's initial and rapidly released claim that it was a technical/mechanical issue, suggests that they were quickly aware that they had caused the downing and were in 'cover up' mode. Attempting to sanitize the crash site before international scrutiny and later back pedaling some of their earlier statements does not instill any real confidence that we will see the full facts come forward in any investigation.

Iran already admitted to accidentally shooting it down, but I doubt it was an accident because they have very advanced SAMS.

Missle strike evidence ? I have seen many videos of burning engines caused by bird strike. I suggest to wait until the facts are on the table.
