Gut retching. From this video it would not surprise me if it was shot down.
I feel horrible politicizing a discussion about a tragedy but in the current climate I feel it needs to be done: It is of absolute ZERO benefit to Iran, to intentionally shoot down an airliner of a neutral country. I believe that if the aircraft was shot down, it was mistaken by air defense operators as a military aircraft. How that happened, I do not know. The sheer negligence that would require is astounding. This will absolutely draw international condemnation, and I anticipate the US to use this as an excuse for regime change war, and try to drag the rest of NATO into it.
I want to remind you all that when a US Naval warship shot down an Iranian civilian airliner, over foreign airspace, they received medals, and our president publicly stated that he would never apologize for the incident. I request ideological consistency in condemnation from those of you who wish to use this incident to beat the drums of war.
