As an effect of unintended consequences, Iran was was on high air raid
alert and shot down an airliner.
An anti aircraft station on high alert near an international airport that had
not been closed; and ATC were apparently unaware of the risks.
Add to that it was Russian anti aircraft which does not seem to be able to
diffrentiate between targets......
Let us all never mention the USS Vincennes
This wasn't really like the Vincennes.
I feel another bullshit excuse for Western superiority is about to follow....

If Iran had been supporting an aggressive enemy attacking the USA
homeland and an Iranian war ship had then deliberately shot down a US
commercial airliner, a couple of miles off the coast of the USA, then it
would be like the Vincennes.
And there it is.
Pure bollocks of course, but nothing more than I would have expected.
Can you even imagine what might happen if an Iranian warship sailed a couple
of miles off the coast of the USA at any time, whether an aggressive enemy
was attacking or not?
The biggest difference is that the Iranian people are protesting about their
own governments actions, whereas the US people gave the captain of the
Vincennes a military award for his efforts.
