It was fascinating to watch the media’s coverage of the whoop-te-do with Iran recently, when the Iranians fired some missiles into the dirt near US bases in Iraq. The evil President Trump had gone and started World War III, just like they always knew he would!
But then, a Ukrainian passenger jet that had just lifted off from the airport in Tehran suddenly
turned into a giant fireball and crashing to the ground, killing all 179 civilians on board. And just like that, World War III was over!
Plus, Iran immediately claimed that the passenger jet had crashed due to a mechanical failure. That seemed odd, since the typical NTSB investigation can last for several years after investigators locate the black boxes.
Iran: “Nothing to see here! Oh, and, um… we’re never turning over the black boxes which we quickly recovered from that downed passenger jet that we totally DID NOT shoot down due to a nervous itchy trigger finger as we were firing missiles at the American pig dogs!”
There really is a lot of truth in this meme. You should be very, very afraid of Iran… but only if you fly commercial.
