  1. Some poor guy or guys who cant even spell missile let alone fire one is about to be hung very publicly.

  2. This is the best tl;dr I could make, [original](https://www.bbc.com/news/world-middle-east-51104687) reduced by 83%. (I’m a bot)

    > AFP Several people have been detained in Iran over the accidental shooting down of a Ukrainian passenger plane with a missile, the country's judiciary says.

    > Iran's air defences had been on high alert because the country had just fired ballistic missiles at two US bases in Iraq, in retaliation for the killing of top Iranian general Qasem Soleimani in a US drone strike in Baghdad. The admission of responsibility provoked widespread anger in Iran, and protesters took to the streets in the capital and several other cities to denounce government lies and the clerical leadership including Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei.

    > UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson told the BBC on Tuesday that he was "Glad" Iran had acknowledged making a "Terrible mistake" in shooting down the plane.

  3. Is someone taking a shower?

  4. Good to see some accountability being taken, I guess, but it does ring a little bit hollow after they denied it for so long. But maybe that’s just me being ignorant of the inner workings of these things. Who’s responsible for what etc.
