    An interesting wee video I came across earlier.
    In ones opinion it doesnt make much difference which side of the argument you come down on on the issue of sanctions but it is an indisputable fact the harsh broad spectrum sanctions imposed on Tehran have made occurrences like this all the more likely - whether this crash can be blamed on it is another question though - If you continue to starve a countries civil aviation fleet of spare parts and replacements it creates what can only be described as a perfect storm of trouble in the future.

    Sunday’s plane crash in Iran that left over 60 killed has revived a debate over how US sanctions against the country’s aviation sector are to blame for such tragedies.

    Those sanctions have been lifted in 2015 thanks to Obama, nevertheless its still responsible for this.

    That sort of control over enterprise is despicable and the USA are some of the biggest hypocrites when it comes to foreign policy. They refuse to answer for war crimes because they dont recognise and arent part of the ICC and yet they have a go at Iran for having enriched Uranium. It's no shock then that Russia put its own pawn in power.
