    I must confess that I didn't think in a 1,000 years would Iran admit that they had

    shot down the plane. My grasp of the complexities of Middle East politics has always been sketchy at best but I realise I no longer understand this world. Please explain.

    I think the overwhelming evidence that they shot it down probably had something to do with it, H. Perhaps also a form of de-escalation too. Denying it would be a clear falsehood and would likely rile Big Donald up even more. Admitting it at least demonstrates a shred of integrity.

    Why are the Iranian people so upset, though?

    You'll notice that they didn't admit nuffink until they'd cleared away the debris, though. Suggests that in some ways they were more concerned about the embarrassments and possible revelations of a lengthy and protracted investigation by an external agency as they were about admitting fault.

    What revalations could there be other than 'it was shot down by the exact same missiles that are in Iran's anti-aircraft installations'?
