  1. Started watching the Americans the other day. It's very good.
  2. If I were superstitious, I'd be worried the incorrect date would jinx us.......
  3. Messiah - 7/10 The second coming or just a naughty boy? I binge watched it over a few days. Terrible acting\directing\script in places, but don't let it put you off because there is something about it that'll keep you watching.

    Neil Peart RIP

    Wonder if his views were challenged after suffering with Brain Cancer for three and a half years.

    We've bagged arsenal's team doctor.

    They probably mean he can't leave before his notice period ends unless they find a replacement.

    War with Iran is it imminent

    CBS News senior foreign correspondent Elizabeth Palmer was able Friday to briefly view the site in Tehran where the Ukrainian plane crashed two days earlier, before Iranian security officials compelled her team to leave. She said very little debris was left from the early Wednesday morning crash and there were people — not officials but apparent scavengers — poring over the scene looking for pieces to take away. Ukrainian investigators had not yet visited the site as of noon on Friday (3:30 a.m. Eastern). Witnesses told Palmer they saw a truck and heavy equipment come on Thursday and take away most of the wreckage. Iran has not said where the wreckage was taken. Palmer and her team said the crash site was large and they were only able to view one part of it, but after they visited the scene a witness told them larger pieces of the jet's fuselage and nose had been removed. The witness said removal of both the wreckage and bodies of the victims began the day of the crash.

    Bellingcat's article is pretty good. https://www.bellingcat.com/news/mena/2020/01/09/video-apparently-showing-flight-ps572-missile-strike-geolocated-to-iranian-suburb/ I think it's reasonable to assume they shot it down.

    War with Iran is it imminent

    Oh dear https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-middle-east-51055219 Iran mistakenly shot down the Ukrainian plane that crashed on Wednesday near Tehran with 176 people on board, US media report. US officials say they believe the Ukrainian International Airlines Boeing 737-800 was hit by a missile, CBS says. Ukraine earlier said it was examining whether a missile strike brought down the aircraft - but Iran ruled this out. The crash came just hours after Iran carried out missile strikes on two airbases housing US forces in Iraq. CBS News quoting US intelligence said a satellite detected infrared "blips" of two missile launches, followed by another blip of an explosion. Meanwhile, Newsweek quoted a Pentagon and a senior US intelligence officials, as well as an Iraqi intelligence official as saying they believed the Ukrainian plane was hit by a Russian-made Tor missile. US President Donald Trump on Thursday said "I have my suspicions" over the plane. "Somebody could have made a mistake," he said. CBS has https://www.cbsnews.com/live-updates/plane-crash-us-officials-confident-iran-shot-down-passenger-jet-bound-for-ukraine-today-2020-01-09-live-stream-updates/ U.S. officials are confident Iran shot down a Ukrainian jetliner in the hours after the Iranian missile attack on U.S. targets earlier this week, CBS News has learned. The Ukrainian International Airlines plane crashed Wednesday soon after takeoff from Tehran's airport, killing all 176 people on board. U.S. intelligence picked up signals of a radar being turned on, sources told CBS News. U.S. satellites also detected two surface-to-air missile launches, which happened shortly before the plane exploded, CBS News was told. Federal officials were briefed on the intelligence Thursday, CBS News transportation Kris Van Cleave reports. A source who was in the briefing said it appears missile components were found near the crash site.

    War with Iran is it imminent

    He's giving a speech now in which he has called on the UK to abandon the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action agreement with Iran. So obviously Johnson will agree. And he's adding more sanctions, which is about all he can do for the moment. Edit: He also wants Nato to be more involved in the middle east, so that'll be interesting.

    War with Iran is it imminent

    Whilst Trump can strike Iran, he can't actually declare war on them without congressional approval. But I suppose he could keep upping the ante until congress is backed into a corner.

    War with Iran is it imminent

    Thats what I originally thought, based largely on the plane coming down in one piece. But then the guardian has this

    Well hopefully that is an end to the sabre rattling....... If the plane had been hit by a missile, then it would have come down in pieces.
