As far as I know the IR655 is not yet clear. While president Bush basically said it was a war accident. Later around 199x Newsweek said that the government covered many things that obviously were totally diferent from the oficial version, and the USS Vincennes’captain said they were sailing in Iranian water space. Those are facts. To me, as far as I know they are as different as night and day.
MH17 reading, listening...I get the idea that whoever ( Russia,Ukreine...)hit the plane deliberately.
Even if everything you say about the circumstances around IR655 is correct, the US did not deliberately shoot down a civilian airliner.
I don't believe anyone deliberately targeted MH17 as a civilian airliner.
Regardless, the point is, civilian airliners have mistakenly been shot down before at times of high tension. It is entirely possible it's just happened again.
