    63 of the 176 victims were Canadian (30 from Edmonton), and many of them were University students here (21 separate Canadian Universities have confirmed losing students in the crash)... so there...

    63 of the 176 victims were Canadian (30 from Edmonton), and many of them were University students here (21 separate Canadian Universities have confirmed losing students in the crash)... so there has been some truly heartbreaking footage and interviews on our news lately. I doubt it being an accidental shooting, instead of intentional, will really do much for those that have lost family members and friends... but at least it's something, I guess. :(

    Human error. Accident. What worthless ways to account for the killing of so many. Javid Zarrif is so sorry for his #hardrevenge. But wait, its all Trump's fault though. He basically pointed Iran's...

    Javid Zarrif is so sorry for his #hardrevenge. But wait, its all Trump's fault though. He basically pointed Iran's missile himself. He forced the Iranian military to kill those civilians. They had no choice in the matter. So he's sorry that Trump made them do it.

    This, of course, coming only after they knew for sure that no one was buying their engine failure story.

    Garbage. Absolute garbage.

    I hate being this mad about something that's got nothing to do with me.

    @Deimos could title be changed to "Iran admits it accidentally shot down Ukranian International Airlines Flight 752"?

          NP... BTW, I went with Ukraine International Airlines (instead of Ukranian) since that's the official name of the airline.

            Thanks for double-checking. Also apologies for the ping $siteCreator, didn't realise title-edit was an available permission.

              Just FYI, if you're looking for someone who can edit titles, you can ping @Curator: Titles on the Unofficial Discord... or just ask Deimos for the permissions for yourself too. ;)

              Not only is it an available permission, but I'm one of the people who has this permission. I could have changed this title.
