    And I didn't even read the wiki article, lol. I remember that shit, armageddon was a comin, and I was a gonna get drafted.
    So I went and read the DOD report on the USS Vincennes incident with flight 635.

    Very interesting read, I suggest you all take a look at it.

    I admit that upon reading the circumstances and context of the incident, I right away thought "Iran sent that airliner into the area to be shot down".

    Maybe that's my bias toward devious thinking, and it can't be proven one way or the other.

      Nobody in the thread was wrong except you, because nobody jumped to a certain conclusion but you, and nobody posted misinformation (Twitter pics) but you.

      Nobody here said it wasn't shot down, or that it couldn't have been Iran. Practically everyone, including me, were open to many possibilities, because we had so little evidence (and your evidence was, shall we say, flawed).

      Once you calm down and go reflect on the thread, you'll realize everyone else was examining the available evidence and refining deduction through process of elimination.

      You on the other hand knew it was Ms. Scarlett, in the Library, with the Revolver.

      You clearly have never played Clue. But now it's played you. Well done, Padawan. You want credit? Here's an internet fist bump.

        If that's actually true then I have seriously scaled back my estimation of Iran's ability to fight a modern military. Can't tell a inbound cruise missile from an outbound 737?

        Most likely young, brash, and tightly wound, wishing for the Supreme Leader and Allah to witness his act. On the radar screen, without IFF, they're all bogeys.

        Oops. Or just scared shitless of Americans and convinced a cruise missile was coming to kill him.

        Seriously Iran hasn't fought a real war since the first time I saw The Empire Strikes back in theaters. Their gear is old and their troops young and inexperienced. Their military is still the 14th strongest. That SA-15 is still as lethal as it was when they bought it.

          Uncle Jimbo vs deer is right.

          Trump's not responsible for firing the missile, but he definitely shares responsibility for the tensions that led to it.

          "52 sites", remember? Because that's exactly what was on Uncle Jimbo's mind when he disabled the safety features on his weapon platform. "Am I one of the 52?"

          Maybe just maybe Cheeto needs to tone down his inner bone spurred chickenhawk a bit.

            Bold of you to think we wouldn't give the contract to Halliburton. Just like last time.

                  A lot of hugs and acceptance, by the looks of it.

                  And several years of psychotherapy, with medication, and some real life wins to bolster his self-esteem, if we are discussing needs instead of wants.

                    But there are always two.

                    A master, and an apprentice.

                      Jared Kushner is the apprentice.

                            I'm not kidding with my question. It's not a trap. I'd actually like to know.

                              Only Ghost can answer that, as you already knew.

                              I'll be quiet then, and see if he does.
