    And the comment about officers of the USS Vincennes receiving medals at the end of that deployment was a fact.

    Two nations separated by a common language, perhaps? . And I don't think smilies are appropriate considering the deaths involved.

    p.s. I can't see your Washington Post link due to a firewall.

    Yikes. Horrible all around.

    Looks like the U. S. paid Iran $61.8 million (in 1988 dollars) to compensate the families of those lost in this incident.

    I wonder if Iran will follow suit?
    Do as you would be done by.

    It’s not hostility, Rob...my point being they’d slit your throat as well as mine.

    I also wouldn’t consider these two instances as apples to apples either.
    Hey, hey, hey, hey! It was the DNA
    Hey, hey, hey, hey...that made me this way.

    ^^^This.... the USS Vincennes was actively engaged in an armed conflict instigated by Iran at the time of the first instance.

    In the second instance Iran initiated and armed attack to which the US did not respond to militarily... in other words the only side doing any actual shooting was Iran.

    YMMV

    The hypocrisy of the left is mind numbing... The Iranian government is literally gunning down its citizen's in the streets for being upset they were lied to and speaking out... and nothing from the left or the Democratic Presidential candidates except crickets.

    Democrats silent on Iran protests as demonstrators blame regime, not Trump, for plane crash

    The only reason a government wants to take away your guns is they are about to do something that you would shoot them for.

    I know it's not hostility on your part, but it sure seems that way sometimes .My little plane costs less than half of your SUV to buy, run and maintain. Tell me your name & where you live, and next time I'm in Utah I'll look you up and buy you a drink.

    I doubt it. One of my best friends is Iranian, and is as sensible as me (and you, probably!). He runs a business in New York.

    I lived 18 months in one of the most corrupt African nations...they were the nicest people you could ever wish to meet.

    The majority of all people are nice, sensible, caring, loving, but all we hear about are the baddies, the extremists, the worst of the bunch.

    Anyway; enough ranting from me

    Take good care.

    ^^^You may be right, Rob. But reporting on baddies and wars and conflict is what sells papers, unfortunately.
    Do as you would be done by.

    Iran state TV sees at least 2 news anchors quit: 'Forgive me for the 13 years I told you lies'


    At least two Iranian journalists at a state-owned media outlet reportedly resigned from their jobs, and another left a while back, apologizing for "the 13 years I told you lies" to her supporters as Tehran grapples with the fallout from protests stemming from a cover-up of its accidental downing of a Ukrainian airliner.
    Gelare Jabbari posted an apology on an Instagram that appears to have been deleted.

    “It was very hard for me to believe that our people have been killed," the post read, according to The Guardian. "Forgive me that I got to know this late. And forgive me for the 13 years I told you lies.”

    ^^^^With credentials like that I'm sure cnn has already hired them.

    Of course they admitted the lies, that's likely way to honest for cnn

    This disaster is turning into a major goat f**k. Now the mullah's will round up half a dozen low level pawns and hang them for what is actually the responsibility of leadership...
