          So apparently the Iranian Air Defense boss wishes he was on the flame they shot down. Wondering if the local commander and the kid who pressed the button lived long enough to say the same thing? I say it was either SGT Raoul with a shamshir in the Ops Trailer or Capt Mohammed with a Sig 226 outside the CO’s hooch who did the deed.

            They say the guy with his finger on the button had 10secs to decide if it was a threat or not. So an aircraft taking off at a high rate of climb from a Civilian (?) Airport was deemed a threat? Wtf

              What about IFF ? They still use that? If I flew in that region I’d tow a banner behind me screaming I an not military.

                  I am guessing just scared shitless Iranian soldiers. I am picturing he yelled holy shit and hit the button like he was on family feud.

                    Poor training and probably a young inexperienced operator who was more afraid of not shooting.
                    I am not armed out of fear of who's in front of me.
                    I am armed out of love of those behind me.

                    Anyone who says money doesn't matter to them is either a FOOL or a LIAR or BOTH!

                      Quite possibly, but I have seen too many spiderwebs in my day....

                          Just like at the ones at the US embassy in Iran in 1979.
                          Exercise the Bill of Rights. It's good for your Constitution.

                              BS. There's no way some guy walking his dog will have the luck of getting a cell phone video of the shootdown on the first try. At best, this had to be the second attempt at launching a missile. Probably more than that.

                                Can't be a guy walking his dog.
                                Muslims consider dogs "dirty" and neither they nor anyone around them can have one.
