IR655

Another unhappy anniversary is marked today: that of the US naval shooting of an Iranian passenger plane 20 years ago. The death toll was 290 passengers. As Papa Doc Bush said at the time:
“I will never apologize for the United States of America, I don’t care what the facts are” (ht2 Iran Affairs)
That pretty well sums up the imperial attitude. Follow the rest of RickB's post and you'll get another example of ugly Americanism in action in the form of a hijack of a wikipedia article about the incident.
