The US decided to eliminate a General. Result, General gone. The retaliation...missile strikes that mostly landed on empty land. Maybe intentionally missed, maybe not. Now it appears that the tension of American air capabilities led to someone thinking that a Ukranian commercial airline was a threat. Threat eliminated, with the death of 176 civilians.

If this is true...I would hate to be the one that made the mistake.

If someone made a mistake that led to Iran shooting down a passenger plane, that person is probably already dead. And Iran will never admit to it.

Loitering drone maybe Iranian missile or false flag. Look up Harop drone if you are into modern warfare. Not saying that was the cause but they were almost certainly deployed at the time the airliner went down. . . it wouldnt make sense for them not to be deployed, given the situation..

A commercial airline flight, authorized to take off from Tehran (in Iran) was shot down by a ground to air missile or two fired from within the same country of Iran, killing all civilians on board.

Things would be very different right now, if there had been any American born civilians on that flight.

I wonder what Canada will do about all of their citizens being murdered by Iran?

Iran has admitted it. This downing of a civilian aircraft is tragic, but I have to wonder if it causing a delay in escalation of hostilities. Maybe some other lives are saved by the loss of these. We will never know what would have happened otherwise.

Many/ most on that plane were not white. . . If thats what bothers you it was probably mostly full of Iranians, those of Iranian descent and dual citizens. Not every Canadian or German is white you know! See it for what it is... An accidental tragedy.

I have to admit that I was wrong. Iran admitted to shooting down the plane. Called it an accident. One missile could bean accident. 2 missiles???? If it had been US warplane, they wouldn't have seen it coming.

Remember that the average Iranian citizen is not a terrorist. It is the radical religious leaders running the government. And the Iranian people are starting to revolt.

If we take out their government, the Iranian people will see us as enemies. But if they take them out themselves and we come in to help them later, we will be seen as friends. Keep up the sanctions. It might be tough on the people for a while, but if it forces them to throw out the Ayatollah, it will be better in the long run.
