Also in this one I can see one 100% miss, but I think I also see one other miss in the dirt and up to 3 possible hits. Someone with (massively) better eyes or a better monitor have an opinion?
It's difficult to distinguish between the grass and the rubble in this image, but I see 3 possible direct hits and 3 or 4 misses. Also it appears some of the missiles just clipped the sides of the hangars, not sure if this was deliberate or not. Relatively good accuracy nonetheless.
Thanks. Bottom right was the obvious miss on pavement. Large dirt divot on the left was my other guess, I think there's dirt or scorching on that huge hangar. And the two central circled hangars were my guesses for side hits.
6 US aircraft hangars 100% destroyed, 6 more clearly damaged, one support building flattened. Possibly 2? more glancing hits to other hangars. Completely apathetic to the existence of US air/missile defenses.
Not a bad outcome for a country whose UN imposed arms export embargo is supposed to end this year. Once Yemen, Syria, Korea, Venezuela can get their hands on The Real Good Shit the empire is gonna have some rough times.

USA had pre-knowledge of the "strike" and moved its personnel/equipment out of the area. 3 days earlier it was reported that US/NATO had re-located its troops in Iraq. The missiles likely hit empty facilities. pic.twitter.com/iop2WKtEf2— Douchebags on Parade (@Urine4TheirShoe) January 8, 2020
Part of such a view arises from thinking that only lots of dead American soldiers could effectively signal Iranian abilities and strategically outflank America. As if only flashy moves count.
The footage i've got from a source - the moment the missile hit the #Flight752. I can't verify the video yet! but please let me know if you find anything. I'm in contact with the person who send this video to see if I can get a version of video which has a meta data on it pic.twitter.com/HtesW5uecB— 🤖Nariman (@NarimanGharib) January 9, 2020
unconfirmed video. could always be MEK in tehran with the MANPAD
Probably infrared, meaning instead of looking at a screen, someone aimed this thing at the sky outside of an airport, aware of what they were targeting probably, and killed hundreds of people.
considering the low altitude this seems most likely if it really was shot down
This is pasted on NYT front page. Who is filming this and why? They clearly knew it was going to happen? No way in hell you catch something like that on video by chance.
- there have been multiple similar mechanical failure crashes in the past of the 737-800 (as recently as 2016, in Russia)
- Boeing is a known fuckup
- it was almost immediately after takeoff, which is the most common time for catastrophic mechanical failure
- there's been at least one other immediate crash after takeoff in the past ten years at that airport
- identifying commercial aircraft is extremely easy for military radar installations, the airport is in a known location, the flight path was standard
- the missile attack on the US bases was at 1:30am (in Iraq - Arabian Standard Time, +3), more than 5 hours before the plane crash at about 6:30am (Iran Standard Time, +3.5)
yeah im still not convinced this was a missile but the discourse has already moved on by the look of things
anyone got any blurry images with little colored circles on them?
in the red circle above, you can clearly see the debris field left by the missle damage\

The real purpose is to keep off the headlines the fact that Amerikkka got directly attacked and had to back down which is completely without precedent.
whoever is directing the propaganda campaign around this needs to be rounded up and fucking shot
