RIP to the people caught up in this mess.
Happily the US is now energy independent, so maybe the mad mullahs time will come to an end throughout the Middle East

my take, i think their air defense was ready for a US retaliation and it was NOT taken off line when the airliner took off and the system "assumed" it was an incoming missile and fired.
A mistake, BUT murder is murder.
exactly, death due to a mistake is not murder, by definition
the assassination, on the other hand, was clearly murder
the flight was apparently an hour late due to transponder problems
they possibly forget to update the take-off window on the missile system
perhaps the transponder wasn't fixed properly too
monstra mihi bona!
RIP to all.

Woohh.. Phnom Poon, don't be calling Iranians "Arabs", lying or not, they'll have a parade just for you chanting, "Death to Phnom Poon" .Phnom Poon wrote: ↑Fri Jan 10, 2020 8:26 pmoh come now
the truth is more likely to come out, perhaps
it seems likely this was a missile, why else would they withhold the black box
and like most stereotypes, 'lying arab' is not entirely baseless
i strongly suspect it was an accident though
and personally speaking, iran is looking like the measured, good guy in this affair
after trump assassinated a diplomat on a mission that the US facilitated and presumably guaranteed
They are Persians and are quite touchy about it (amongst many other things)
the point stands though i think
monstra mihi bona!
