By that you mean the Iranian "shadow" government would have been responsible for that plane crashing in to the building?

It really would have been something if that plane would've hit the building square about halfway up and the freakin' thing didn't collapse. Somebody would of had some 'splaining to do. Oh but then it would've been about how the plane wasn't carrying enough fuel and yada yada yada yada.

RIP to the passengers.

From the London Independent:

A military aircraft loaded with Iranian journalists ploughed into the bottom of a Tehran apartment block shortly after take-off, killing all 94 on board and about 32 people on the ground.

The 10-storey apartment block is one of several in the Towhid housing compound run by the airforce for its own personnel. The lower floors of the block were totally destroyed by the fire, and neighbouring buildings were also burnt and had their windows shattered by the blast. After the crash, thousands of people gathered around the compound trying to get in, but were repelled by riot police armed with batons.

Did the building collapse? Was it a direct hit or did the wing just clip it as mentioned above? Or what happened?

Well according to BBC news, 68 journalist's were killed, who were on the aircraft travelling to the south of the country, to report on military exercises.

According to MSNBC, there are iranians that also agree with my earlier assessment that the government of iran should spend their money on maintaining what the already have.


"These planes were out of date 15 years ago," said Hassan, whose brother died in the apartment block struck by the plane. "I'm a military man and I know they don't pay enough for the planes' maintenance."

Instead, iran spends billions chasing after nuclear weapons technology.
