In “retaliation” the Iranians lob 15 missiles at a couple of US bases.

Within the same hour of their missile attack, there just happened to be a couple of earthquakes in Iran.

Then an airliner just happens to crash in Tehran. Reports indicate that it was already on fire when it went down.


Sounds to me like someone in Iran was spooked by the earth rumbling from an earthquake, assumed it was bombs going off as a result of another U.S. strike in retaliation for their retaliatory attack. Then a large airplane shows up on radar near Tehran. The left hand doesn’t communicate with the right hand.
I will let someone else figure out the rest.
You forgot to mention the chemtrails that were observed.

Plus, you have to come in pretty low to land.

I can’t attach a pic right now (ipad doing strange things today on multiple sites) but fragments of what appears to be an SA-15 were allegedly found in a Tehran neighborhood near the crash.

It appears to be the forward fins to me. And, I know Surface to Air missile systems.

Will post later if I can get the functions to work.

Multiple pics now being posted on the web.

Is it safe to say that Iran really SHOT themselves in the foot?

Or..... collusion with trump and Khamenei to off the leader of the coup-to-be gone wrong? (Therefore the Iranian missile strike without a single casualty)

Edit: alcohol.

😊
That some good alcohol you got there. Care to share?

On a serious note, if there is nothing nefarious going on, why are the Iranians refusing access to the FDR- which they apparently have recovered?
