No it is not.Everyone’s fanatics are scary (and inherently dangerous) as hell.Wow, TWO missiles. The poor crew and passengers really never had any chance to escape alive. As for the authors of that slaughter... I have very little consideration for fanatics that send human waves ahead of tanks to clear minefields. And to find volunteers, they give them a plastic key that, supposedly, open heavens and guarantee a place along Allah...
Dear God. Those iranians fanatics are scary as hell.
To try to explain/ attribute modern Iran and this particular incident to fanaticism is very simplistic and potentially reductive to the point of absurdity.
LEt me explain it differently.
Look, usually SAM (others than short range / shoulder mounted), the big ones with long range and sophisticated guidance systems, are under responsability of regular armies - air forces or land armies.
Except in Iran - the missiles that shot down that unfortunate airliner, were not under control of the regular army but one of these fanaticized militias - there are half a dozen of them inside and outside Iran, think Hizzbullah or Guardians of the Revolution or Pasdarans.
Well, actually this one.
Just as with MH17 and that Buk system that was passed to the Russian mercenaries in Ukraine, when powerful SAMs get outside control of professional soldiers in a regular army, those things happen. Kind of giving a matchbox and gasoline to an irresponsible kid or an angered teenager.
Those idiot fanatics were so persuaded to target a US drone or cruise missile, they send the missiles straight into an airliner.
That was the point I wanted to make.
