Iran Air Flight 655 (IR655) was a civilian jet airliner shot down by U.S. missiles on 3 July 1988, over the Strait of Hormuz, toward the end of the Iran–Iraq War. The aircraft, an Airbus A300B2-203 operated by Iran Air, was flying from Bandar Abbas, Iran, to Dubai, United Arab Emirates, when it was destroyed by the U.S. Navy's guided missile cruiser USS Vincennes, killing all 290 passengers and crew aboard, including 66 children,ranking it ninth among the deadliest disasters in aviation history
It was the highest death toll of any aviation incident in the Indian Ocean and the highest death toll of any incident involving an Airbus A300 anywhere in the world. Vincennes was traversing the Strait of Hormuz, inside Iranian territorial waters, and at the time of the attack IR655 was within Iranian airspace
However, the United States has never admitted responsibility, nor apologized to Iran

Whoa... I think I know what the problem is with the world... I was elected dictator overnight and didn't know it.
Okay, since this One world gov is mine, Base on MARS ASAP, CASINOS on MOON ASAP, flood the streets with fun stuff to keep population not doing anything busy. Take flouride out of water and add in birth control. Abolish all currencies and use one stardard note for all economies. Legalie all behavior that does not cause harm to others.
Disarm the population, for barbaric weapons are not needed when we have real justice in a court of law.
All food and water and air is free, unprocessed. Processed is considered trademarked and can have a surcharge if the person making it wants to charge.
Transport all poor people from small towns to cities, build cities up to better use our space and lessen impact on eviroment.
rezone farm land back to nature.
Free the enslaved large mammals in zoo's.
Free the imprisoned people in jail for drug offensives and put them to work, those are capitalists and consumers, why jail them.
Under my world rule we only recognie the internet as the other independant nation, but it is an anarchist society and we mostly only do trade with it's citizens.
That's a very sad event, not sure what to say, just hope we start watching civilian casualties if we plan to be an empire
