This is coolbert:
I would not preclude the possibility.
Thanks to Freeper this story I am sure will be a controversial item for some time to come.
"On Same Night Iran Fires Missiles – Ukraine Passenger Flight Leaving Tehran Airport Crashes Killing 170…."
"Horrific coincidence that might not entirely be a coincidence. A Ukraine 737 Airliner, Flight 752 from Tehran to Ukraine, is lost shortly after take-off. The incident takes place only hours after Iran fires ballistic missiles into Iraq targeting U.S. bases Video of the plane crashing shows the airliner in flames as it nears the ground and explodes. Some preliminary reporting indicated the flight might have been accidentally shot down by Iranian anti-aircraft defenses."
NOT TO PRECLUDE THE POSSIBILITY THAT IRANIAN AIR DEFENSE [AD] SHOT THE PLANE DOWN BY ACCIDENT. AS PREPOSTEROUS AS SUCH AN ALLEGATION MAY SEEM.
To place such a possible even in context consider that during that period of the Cold War, it is alleged.The Soviet Union AD shot down FORTY of their own aircraft, so skittish and trigger happy were the defenders of Soviet air space.
