    Should we expect a presidential tweet mocking them?

    Israel too: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Libyan...nes_Flight_114

    But I'm not sure, what counts as an apology? Israel admitted fault, but I'm not sure if stating 'error of judgement' is an actual apology. Iran seems to have gone further in apologizing.

    I get the feeling people who bought SAMs from Russia either got shit training, or didn't pay for the extra training that actually allows them to accurately identify enemy aircraft.
    meh

    I dont know quite to put words on it but "getting away" with things likes this, writing it off like an accident, feels like its nowhere near enough in this day and age.

    Looking at the protests in Iran on this subject it is likely some heads will roll.

    Right but this is two civilian airliners now because the client state SAM operators didn’t know what the fuck they were doing.

    Is it possible the Russian systems are so shitty that they can't tell the difference between civilian and military planes? Because if that were the case, we might be able to classify them as WMDs, and sanction anyone who uses them (while we subtly suggest that Patriot systems are better and people should buy those instead).

    Probably quite literally.

    U.S. Warns Iraq It Risks Losing Access to Key Bank Account if Troops Told to Leave

    The Trump administration warned Iraq this week that it risks losing access to a critical government bank account if Baghdad kicks out American forces following the U.S. airstrike that killed a top Iranian general, according to Iraqi officials.

    The State Department warned that the U.S. could shut down Iraq’s access to the country’s central bank account held at the Federal Reserve Bank of New York, a move that could jolt Iraq’s already shaky economy, the officials said.

    Iraq, like other countries, maintains government accounts at the New York Fed as an important part of managing the country’s finances, including revenue from oil sales. Loss of access to the accounts could restrict Iraq’s use of that revenue, creating a cash crunch in Iraq’s financial system and constricting a critical lubricant for the economy.

    The prospect of U.S. sanctions against Iraq arose after the Jan. 3 U.S. airstrike that killed Iranian Maj. Gen. Qassem Soleimani at Baghdad International Airport. The Iraqi parliament voted Sunday to urge Prime Minister Adel Abdul-Mahdi to work toward the expulsion of the approximately 5,300 U.S. troops.
    lol, such colonialism much wow. Who do you think you are America, France?

    Press keeps omitting that the same airstrike pwned an iraqi commander and some of their men too.
