I was expecting blame to be laid at any time.

But yeah, the timing is suspicious. I mean, sometimes a pig is really just a pig, but if it starts quacking it bears considering different possibilities.

(And that probably didn't make a lot of sense... time for all good little rednecks to go beddy bye)

The vast majority of aircraft accidents occur on takeoff and landing. The crew is busiest then, and may suffer from overload, making mistakes. And the reaction time is significantly reduced.

But..I mean...couldn't he?

I didn't think of that until you said it but it's not impossible.

If the above is true
I think its safe to go out on a limb and assume the nuclear plant has been struck
...which would pollute the region


Im sure Trump’s sound asleep, shows over.

3) Trump knew about and signed off on this before it happened as a way for both sides to agree on de-escalation.

Best possible outcome.



Will make for a great Trump re-election campaign commerical too!

But if we dropped a bomb there then we missed our target by a lot.

That doesn't look good for us. Why would we miss at all? Did iran stop us?

Glad you joined us.

I wanted your opinion on this:


Our pilots are the best in the world, but Iran has some extremely sophisticated A2/AD (anti access/area denial) capability that poses a significant risk to our fighters.

unconfrimed from agenda free tv that the aircraft may have been shot down accidently but again NO confirmation but if true would be pretty big escalation on part of iran even if accidental

The US Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) said it would ban US carriers from operating in the airspace over Iraq, Iran, the Gulf of Oman and the waters between Iran and Saudi Arabia after Iran launched a missile attack on US-led forces in Iraq. Tehran fired more than a dozen ballistic missiles from Iranian territory against at least two Iraqi military bases hosting US-led coalition personnel, the US military said on Tuesday. The FAA said it issued the airspace ban “due to heightened military activities and increased political tensions in the Middle East, which present an inadvertent risk to US civil aviation operations”.

no clue some one tweeted it at him and some one said it was accidentally shot down but again that is from some random on twitter

no one knows offically why it went down but video of it on fire before crashing ,could have just been an engine failure

The reports I have seen have indicated it was technical, even reports from Iran (unconfirmed).

You got a link saying otherwise, even if unreliable on Twitter?

Wouldn't it be fun if everything that happened from here on out was reported as "an accident"?
