The Iranians are now refusing to cooperate with the Ukrainian investigators. This follows the alleged leaking from a Ukrainian source of ATC recordings. These contain a dialogue between Tehran ATC and an aircraft on approach to land at the time of the shoot down in which a pilot reports seeing missile like ‘lights’(ie exhaust flame).

“We will no longer provide any documents to the Ukrainians," the head of the Iranian investigation team, Hassan Rezaeifar.

The claim that the Revolutionary Guard covered this up and kept everyone else in the dark is dubious. Several senior non Guard figures must have known from the beginning that this Ukrainian 752 had been shot down.

Pilot....“Is this an active(ie militarily active) area? There's lights like a missile. Is there anything?"

ATC ...."Nothing has been reported to us. What's the light like?"

Pilot..... "It's the light of a missile."

Shortly afterwards he reports seeing a “big light from an explosion".


The civil authorities must have known from the outset that this was a missile shoot down. All this talk from within the regime about the Revolutionary Guard covering this up is not very credible.

Over 100 US troops have now been diagnosed with traumatic brain injuries following the Iranian missile attack on the al Asad military base in Iraq.
The figure is a significant increase from the 64 injured service members previously reported by the Pentagon.

Donald Trump initially said no Americans were injured in the raid.

Maybe it was reported initially to the top brass that nobody was seriously injured.
It took decades for the Irish army to go deaf.

What ,you mean the first few minutes after the attack or a month later somebody decided to give a real figure .You would think the Commander in Chief would like to know how his soldiers are doing especially brian injured ones but then he said no one was injured the lying turd so why would he care .

No, I mean they were all in bunkers protected from the shrapnel etc when the missiles fell. When they came out they had headaches, but didn't realise until later there might be some permanent damage done to their brains.

Ah yes that will explain the lack of clarity from the Top Brass in the Pentagon took them how long remind me again to clarify there was serious injuries when the lying Trump administration was saying there was none at all .

Looks like it was all just another American misunderstanding but they got their guys and those guys would have done something sometime, everyone who needs to stay safe needs to understand that we are the good guys!!!


It now appears that the original death of the American contractor that sparked the tit-for-tat conflict was not carried out by Kata’ib Hezbollah at all. An Iraqi Army investigative team has gathered convincing evidence that it was an attack staged by Islamic State. In fact, the Iraqi government has demonstrated that Kata’ib Hezbollah has had no presence in Kirkuk province, where the attack took place, since 2014. It is a heavily Sunni area where Shi’a are not welcome and is instead relatively hospitable to all-Sunni IS. It was, in fact, one of the original breeding grounds for what was to become ISIS.

I wonder how widely this will be reported and discussed in mainstream media?
