    Default Protests Erupt in Iran after Military Admits Downing Ukrainian Passenger Jet:

    "Death to the Dictator"

    Protesters in Iran are demanding that Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei steps down, after the country's military admitted to accidentally downing a Ukrainian passenger jet, killing all 176 people on board.
    On Saturday afternoon, thousands of people gathered in Tehran's main squares as meetings organized on social media to mourn the dead transformed into protests against the military's mistake, The New York Times reported. Chants in videos seen on social media by the newspaper included "Death to liars!", "Death to the dictator!" and "You have no shame."
    The semi-official Iranian Fars News Agency, which is linked to the Iranian Revolutionary Guards Corps, demanded those responsible be held accountable, and said the shortcomings of the country's leaders had made the "tragedy twice as bitter," according to The New York Times.
    Earlier in the day, angry Iranians took to social media to ask why civilians had become the victims of their country's "harsh revenge," according to The New York Times.

    Who is this "darling" and why do you say dumb shit like that?
    It seems that shooting down your airplanes with your own people on it is not acceptable. Big shock there.
    Who do you think is pro-Ayatollah, if that is what you believe passes for thinking? How the hell is the Irani government a dem ally?
    The Irani people have been pro-western for a long time. They did not choose this government. America did it by installing the Shah and starting this whole mess. Eisenhower. a Repub. was president then.
