  1. What’s Iran’s plan?

    Also piss off the one ally the US would be reluctant to go to war without?

  2. The UK will then expel the Iranian Ambassador to the UK. Tit for tat. But then what? will it escalate to discontinuing diplomatic ties?

    Iran’s ayatollah is excellent at isolating his country and driving its economy into the shitter.

  3. This is the best tl;dr I could make, [original](https://www.theguardian.com/world/2020/jan/14/tehran-plane-crash-individuals-arrested-says-iran) reduced by 77%. (I’m a bot)

    > Iran's judiciary says arrests have been made over the accidental shooting down of a Ukrainian passenger plane that killed all 176 people on board just after takeoff from Tehran.

    > Iran, which initially dismissed allegations that a missile had brought down the plane, acknowledged that its Revolutionary Guards had shot down the Ukrainian plane by mistake three days after Wednesday's crash and in the face of mounting evidence.

    > Iran shot down the plane when it was braced for possible US retaliation over a ballistic missile attack on two military bases housing US troops in Iraq.
