Iran says will never let aggressive moves against Iranian nation go unanswered
[ Editor’s Note: This was a disgraceful mistake by the US, whether it was an over zealous squadron commander who thought this would polish his resume as a tough guy by harassing a civilian airliner, or someone higher up.
It was even worse if done by a Trump political crony looking to help out his beleaguered boss by getting some diversionary press by a dumb stunt like this. Just imagine, they can show this at the Air Force Academy as an example of how much fun they can have buzzing civilian airliners, maybe even taking a selfie to send home to Mom.
Trump cannot be shamed, as he is a serial sociopath and they never feel guilt or remorse.
The only defense he could have is to point to Israel’s slick habit of flying low and behind on a civilian airliner until a missile battery locks onto it and then kicks in the afterburners to leave the screening plane to take the hit, as happened when Israel took the Russian surveillance plane down.
Now we run the risk of some Iranian group wanting to attack Americans in retribution and trigger more escalation. VT will have its false flag radars on for the rest of the election season. If Trump goes down, he will not not be concerned about who goes down with him… Jim W. Dean ]

Iran’s Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif has denounced the United States for harassing a scheduled Iranian civil airliner over Syria and endangering the lives of civilians, saying the American government must be reined in to prevent more disasters.
Zarif made the remark in a post on his official Twitter account on Friday after the harassment of an Iranian Beirut-bound passenger plane by two US fighter jets over the Syrian airspace Thursday night.
