The president of Iran was being transported, along with other dignitaries, in a helicopter visiting a border area of Iran when the copter experienced a "hard landing" in bad weather ...in what apparently is a remote area.

How "hard" the landing was...and whether or not it left him "breathing capable" or not...they dont know yet.

Couldnt have happened to a nicer guy! :roll:

Oh Great... that entire areas is practically a constant War zone . Nothing like adding flame to fire .
Seems everybody wants Iran to go to War.. Our Military Industrial Complex is tugging at its bit .
Justify further inflation ...if our country can make another War, Israel wants the final conflict in the. MiddleEast.
Seems Iran maybe supporting Hamas...And figure perhaps Israel can drag the US into a military action against Iran .
Iran is the super proxy of Russia ,now ...But in years past they were our friends overthere .
All we need is another phoney type 9/11 type event, So we can get Iran aswell as we have finished off Iraq.
( So maybe if Iran gets stupid,we will be fighting Wars all over and that is how Countries lose Wars)
Snd Russian needs us to stop helping Ukraine also ... but this is just speculation...
:ninja:
Somehow , i think , i can almost see The Nuclear Mushroom cloud from hear ?????. :(.... 8O

I am sure someone in Iran is blaming Israel for it.

And you're right ...couldnt be at a worse time. Israel and Iran just got through shooting drones and rockets at each other.

And the Iranian president had more international enemies than...Mr. Body...in the game of Clue! Lol!

Israel, The US, Saudi Arabia, the Gulf States, the Kurds, and probably Azerbijanian nationalists, not to mention about half of his own people who vote against him and are angry about the killing of that young lady by "morality police" a few years ago.

But Stevie Ray Vaunghn died by accident in helicopter, and there was no foul play involved when "the music died" in that plane crash that killed Buddy Holly, Big Bopper, and Richie Valens. So I suspect accident and bad weather.

But yeah...could be like the shooting of the Archduke Ferdinand in Sarajevo in 1914. It could be taken as foul play and could ignite a powder keg.

I'm waiting for Trump to blame Biden, QAnon to blame the Deep State, and Marjorie Taylor Greene to blame the Clintons.

Cant vouch for this TV guy's credibility, but...

he is saying that folks in Iran are....celebrating...with fire works...the death of their president in this crash.

Security forces will soon crack down, but...stuff is hitting the fan it looks like.

On the contrary. Trump is probably now wishing that he could CLAIM credit himself for killing President Ibraham.

While still POTUS Trump did order the killing of that Iranian military guy in Iraq.

Its true that Trump tries to blame all of the world's wars on Biden, but he also wants to take credit for killing higher value targets than anyone else (like claiming his murdered guy was more important than Obama's victim...Ben Laden).

I don't know alot about Iran but when Iranians in Tehran heard the news that Raisi was probably dead; instead of mourning they had wild celebrations.

The Associated Press is running the story  HERE .

Here is what to know so far:

• The crash: After a long search through a mountainous region, Iran's president and foreign minister were announced dead by state media.

• Ebrahim Raisi: Iran's hard-line president has long been seen as a protégé to Iran's supreme leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei.

• Hossein Amirabdollahian: The foreign minister represented the hard-line shift after the collapse of Tehran's nuclear deal with world powers.

• International reaction: Countries including Russia, Iraq and Qatar have made formal statements of concern about Raisi's fate.
