Has Trump started a huge conflict?

Trump has ordered the killing in Baghdad of a top Iranian General. Knowing the psyche of the Iranians and remembering the time the US Embassy there , some years ago, was attacked, I would not like to be an American diplomat in Iraq or Iran at the moment,

Pity Trump doesn't know who Alexander the Great was!

It seems the Iranian missile attack on U S Iraq base was a bit of a token. However it appears that the 3 year old Ukrainian Boeing was shot down in Iran by Iranian missiles , maybe in error . The repercussions of this are only just starting.

If it was intended they'd be claiming it as some post of success.

I wonder if it was just in the wrong place at the wrong time that the missiles were being flung around?

Boeing don't seem to believe that it's circumstances are any kind of technical problem.

Well they admit it now.

Obviously as it was leaving from iran it would going away from iran and would not have came up as an attack on iran. if it was heading into iran i could see how that mistake could have happened.

Or even further, 61 years ago.

I inadvertently put a missile across the active runway of a major Middle East airport, much to the consternation of a BOAC captain who was just 50 metres away in the middle of his take off run and had already raised the nosewheel.

Luckily if had no guidance system and simply flew straight and level and buried itself in the sand a mile or so away.

Don't knock a mistake under operational pressure until you've tried such pressure.

My father shelled Hull by accident. They were testing the guns of he new command, the Melbrake, a Hunt Class Destroyer, with a brand new crew and gang of Dockyard Maties (as he called them) on board.

They reached the end of their allotted area and had to come about, so my father told the new Bridge Messenger to run and tell the new Gunner, what they were about to do. Now, an old hand had told the youngster that, should he not understand what he had been told, to say "Aye-Aye Sir" and leave the Bridge at the double, count to 100 and return and come to attention with a salute. Which he duly did.

3 shells had been fired into Hull before anyone noticed. Luckily, although a couple of houses were hit, there was no one in them at the time.
