Re: Hmm, find it strange ...

Israeli propaganda Just how do you make that assumption. Apart from his name?? Israel has far more to worry about from the Sunni regimes than the Persians. The double fact that the USA see's the Sunni's as an ally in this sectarian issue is quite unbelievable. Just remember it is Wahhabism that adv...

Re: Ukrainian Passenger Plane Crashes in Iran.

Plane has puncture holes in fuselage seems like a SAM took this plane down. Sorry Tigerryan From the photos of the crash site that are available to public view there is hardly anything that Joe Public could identify as the fuselage. The plane was totaled. Could well be that the 'well trained' Irania...

Re: Ukrainian Passenger Plane Crashes in Iran.

The inference was there Buddy. The plane plunging down in flames etc. Lets just leave it at that and see what the next couple of weeks brings. Pretty sure the Persians are not as (don't know how to put this politely) stupid to take on the USA and its Arab Allies. Saudi and the UAE all detest Iran. L...

Re: Ukrainian Passenger Plane Crashes in Iran.

Seems to have gone down in flames, field with all kinds of fires. Does not look like "technical problems" then again this is twitter An airplane just a few minutes into its flight will normally be carrying a fair old amount of fuel.

Agree with what you are saying Tam but with the number of camera's used by the media ready to pounce on every mistake by a referee it should be used as a tool to assist ref's.

Does it really matter what the West does to reduce their already virtually neutral emissions while China and India alone account for nearly 70% of all CO2 emissions world wide. Yes, it does.
