TEHRAN REALISES THAT EVERYONE HAS A PHONE

By Pete Moore On January 11th, 2020

Iran’s admission it “unintentionally” shot down a Ukrainian passenger jet has sparked demands for justice for the 176 people on board who were killed.

The calls were led by Ukraine’s president and the prime minister of Canada, which lost 57 nationals.

Social media footage has shown protests in Iran, some of them calling for Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei to resign.

With the world able to watch a video of the aircraft being hit by a missile, even the mullahs had to concede that stonewalling was untenable. If they had come clean immediately they might have found the global reaction a touch more generous than they anticipated. A straight apology for a straight cock up is usually not rebuffed. Even so, they are still blaming President Trump, which sinks them to the level of Democrats and Trudeau.

Those protests are being filmed tonight and are straight onto the web too (see this thread). Good luck to the protestors. A couple of months ago the regime which Corbyn today defended murdered some 1500 protestors.

Everyone has a phone now with decent image quality. Governments cannot hide their actions as they once did.

  1. Everyone has a phone now with decent image quality. Governments cannot hide their actions as they once did.

    I only that was true. China and India are experts in restricting internet access and Russia will soon follow.

  2. It is at least an attempt at honesty by the Teheran regime. A similar shootdown would be stone-walled in the US, taking TWA 800 as the example

  3. People hate to admit embarrassing mistakes, like writing a fake post about New South Wales and firemen.

  4. No, that was a real post. Events before and since have revealed the only fakery to be claims that the fires are down to (yawnarama) climate change.

  5. Dig deeper.

  6. Hey ‘Alan any new thoughts on the World Trade Center conspiracy

    I heard that it was a planned demolition

  7. Phantom – you’re correct.

  8. Mahons, the

    People hate to admit embarrassing mistakes, like writing a fake post about New South Wales and firemen.

    Well said mate.
    Let’s just add that to the big stack of other fake posts and bulshit, posted by this individual.

  9. I think it’s time to close the embassies in Tehran and London. The Iranians are taking the piss, not acceptable:

    “The UK ambassador to Iran was arrested during anti-government protests in Tehran after officials admitted shooting down a passenger plane. Rob Macaire was held for three hours, in what the UK described as a “flagrant violation of international law”. It is understood he was attending a vigil for those who died in the crash, which turned into a protest.”

  10. TWA 800 was faulty wiring in the center tank.

    The only reason that the conspiracy ever had any legs was it’s one of our greatest fears. The majority of America’s busiest airports can’t be protected from a stinger.

  11. There is enough wickedness in the world.

    Belief in endless conspiracies is a way of avoiding the actual evil that exists

  12. and there is real evil out there.

  13. best comment you wrote there phantom 2:22am
    and that is the shame of it , which the conspiracy people must carry
    whether they admit it or not, they have that heavy shit yet to deal with

  14. this is good
    pat not doing any guests post anymore !! from me anyway !!

    Rudy Giuliani just reached the Mad Magazine stage of his downfall

  15. If these demonstrations lead to the Teheran govt being held more accountable to its people, or, even better, replaced by an open and democratic govt, then even the grim facts of the airline deaths may have at least had a good outcome.

    OK

    https://nypost.com/2013/07/17/documentary-raises-questions-about-doomed-twa-flight-800/

    Seventeen years ago today, TWA Flight 800 took off from JFK bound for Paris. Twelve minutes later it exploded over the water near East Moriches, Long Island — killing all 230 passengers on board.

    Before a day had passed, reporters, particularly John Miller, found eyewitnesses who swore they saw at least one streak of light fly from the surface of the earth, weave to the side, aim directly and then strike the plane, causing a massive explosion.

    The FBI and the CIA took over the investigation determining, finally, that the crash had been caused by an explosion of unknown origin in a fuel tank. It was not, the government insisted — and attempted to prove — anything other than an accident. There was no missile, they said.

    It was the wiring, or whatever Patrick and the wider public have been told.

    https://www.nj.com/news/2015/04/twa_flight_800_was_shot_down_former_obama_pilot_argues_in_oped.html

    For US readers, details are in the embedded ‘the 747 must have been shot down’.

    He also disputed the official explanation that cracked insulation in 16 miles of wiring not recovered from the crash site contributed to the explosion of vapors in the empty center fuel tank. Danzinger noted that in the 159 miles of wires found, there was not a “single piece of cracked insulation.”

    How is it possible for there to be blamed cracking in the very relevant wiring which was NOT recovered when all other wiring was sound? One thing of note when comparing US authorities with those of Iran is that US authorities have much more cover-up capability and also have compliant media which distribute the official meme instantly – as Osama Bin Laden would have attested.

    yes – and that evil swims in a sea of stupidity and feeds on dupes

  18. It’s a conspiracy

  19. One would assume that the most important factor for an airplane manufacturer would be technical reliability – that would appear reasonable Y/N

    Not for Boeing it isn’t:

    https://www.diversityinc.com/the-boeing-company/

    Sara Bowen
    Vice President, Global Diversity & Inclusion

    “At Boeing, we know our success relies on our ability to honor and celebrate the best in everyone, from every background and country, every race, every gender identity and orientation, disability, and military status. Diversity and inclusion aren’t nice to have, they’re a business necessity.”

    White men are the basis of technical excellence and quality – that’s just the way it is. Boeing disagrees with the natural order and now……

  20. Good luck to the protestors. A couple of months ago the regime which Corbyn today defended murdered some 1500 protestors.

    Indeed. And this lying murdering raping junta will continue with business as usual. Soleimani was one of the main drivers of this lying and raping and murdering, let’s not forget that.

    The shooting down of the plane will be blamed on the Great Satan, even if they now admit that local defenders fired the missile. And within a few weeks at most that message will prevail and the regime will be as secure as ever. And they will have the bomb by the end of this year to protect them even more. Bibbi should be seriously worried.

  21. And they will have the bomb by the end of this year…..

    That one has been around since 1980

  22. They should name that the Trump bomb

    He is the one who dismantled the Iran nuclear arrangement, which was working

  23. The Iranians are a problem and they have been a problem through all of recorded history. This year 2020 the Ban on Arms imports and exports expires.

    The NATO nations especially the French need to restrain themselves in their weapon sales.

  24. The Iran Nuclear deal was a deal that ends with them legally obtaining a nuclear bomb, and to you that was a good deal.

    Are you insane ?

  25. Not to mention that the Nuclear Deal gave them the funding for their terror spree and resupply of rockets to Hezbollah and Hamass….. but it was their money……

    Patrick – would you show me that ring of Iranian bases around the US, or Europe, or anywhere? Would you show me the list of countries which Iran has invaded or waged aggressive war against?

    How many foreign countries ‘host’ US bases? As one sees now with Iraq, once the fat arse is sitting down, it ain’t gonna move

  27. The Iran nuclear deal was being honored

    Busting it up was very unwise

  28. honored by the west, the Iranians weren’t honoring it.

    Would you like the list ?

  29. The NATO nations especially the French need to restrain themselves in their weapon sales

    Yeah – but there’s somebody else…….

    https://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2016/08/23/israel-sold-weapons-to-argentina-at-height-of-falklands-war-reve/

    Israel sold weapons to Argentina at the height of the Falklands War in 1982, according to newly declassified Foreign Office files.

    British diplomats cited evidence that Israel had supplied the Argentine military junta with arms that were used against the Task Force during the campaign to liberate the islands.

    Israeli military exports before the war included the Skyhawk jets that would later be used to bomb British warships, killing dozens of soldiers, sailors and marines.

    Despicable, and yet not even the worst……

    https://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worldnews/middleeast/israel/10649567/US-investigates-illegal-military-equipment-shipments-from-Israel-to-Iran.html

    Israeli arms dealers twice tried to send spare parts for fighter planes to Iran, The Telegraph has established, flouting an international arms embargo and openly contradicting the bitter enmity between the Jewish state and the Islamic regime.

    Note that Israel supplied Iran with spares for US-made jets during the Iran-Iraq war, the aggressor Iraq having been given the green-light by the US (Donald Rumsfeld).

    Remember the Liberty!!

  30. UN reports increasing violations of Iran nuclear deal

    https://apnews.com/452a336123d742718027f219f6dd256f

    not a rightwing source.

  31. These actions by Iran were after Trump unwisely tore up the deal

  32. They were honoring the deal

    They now are not honoring the terms of the deal that the US says no longer exists

  33. bullshit the 1.7 Billion in unmarked mixed currency was immediately used to fund terror. A Violation of International Law even outside the treaty.

    The road to hell is paved with good intentions. Obama was trying to bring Iran to peace through negotiation and very large carrots. His heart may have been pure, but the people he dealt with are evil.

    They took the money and funded death and the means to cause death. It was an utter failure and was suicidal to continue it. Iran has no desire to get along. They desire to rule and The Deal gave them a legal path to nuclear weapons.

  34. Who’da thunk Trudeau would be the Uke jet champion?

    The NATO nations especially the French need to restrain themselves in their weapon sales

    Irony overload.

  35. The NATO nations especially the French need to restrain themselves in their weapon sales

    Irony overload.

    Patrick must have written that for laughs Paul, there’s no way he could be being serious.

  36. No the French have been a major supplier of weapons an nuclear material for decades.

    F the French

  37. I can’t believe you missed the point I was making with that comment Patrick.

  38. I don’t look for “points” except the ones typed……
