1Iran marks anniv. of US downing of passenger plane 1988

Iran is commemorating the 31st anniversary of the downing of an Iranian Airbus A300B2 passenger plane by a US Navy guided-missile cruiser in the Persian Gulf waters in 1988.
Ahlul Bayt News Agency (ABNA): Iran is commemorating the 31st anniversary of the downing of an Iranian Airbus A300B2 passenger plane by a US Navy guided-missile cruiser in the Persian Gulf waters in 1988.
The commemoration ceremony marking the downing of an Iranian Airbus A300B2 passenger plane by a US Navy guided-missile cruiser took place on Tuesday ahead of the incident's 31st anniversary at Mehrabad Airport in Tehran.
The ceremony was attended by Parliament Speaker Ali Larijani, Minister of Roads and Urban Development Mohammed Eslami, and CEO of Iran Air (HOMA), Touraj Dehghani-Zangeneh.
The Iran Air Flight 655 was an Airbus A300B2 civilian aircraft flying in Iranian airspace over the Strait of Hormuz from the port city of Bandar Abbas to Dubai, carrying 274 passengers and 16 crew members on July 3, 1988, when a US Navy guided-missile cruiser, USS Vincennes, fired missiles at it, killing all the 290 onboard.
US officials claimed the warship had mistaken the passenger plane for a warplane, even though the warship was equipped with highly advanced radar systems and electronic battle gear at the time of the attack.
US did not admit legal liability or formally apologize to Iran. In fact, a year later, the captain of the USS Vincennes, William C. Rogers, was cleared of any wrongdoing in the incident, and was even awarded America’s Legion of Merit medal by then President George Bush for his “outstanding service.”
The US behavior towards the Iranians and other nations shows the country has been committing inhumane acts to achieve its “ominous objectives” and using human rights as a pretext to pursue its “excessive demands and illegitimate interests,” Iranian Foreign Ministry had said in a statement on the 30th anniversary of the incident.

I just wanna chill and talk about one of the things that I’m not a fan of.· 0 replies
Sweet and Savory Foods e.g. Pineapple Pizza.
I’m not a fan of that. I would prefer my food to be either Savory or Sweet. But not both. Basically if I’m going to live up to the philosophy of ‘I eat to live’ I would prefer my Food to be kept simple and easy to cook. Or how other people would live up to the K.I.S.S Principle when living their Life, “Keep It Simple Stupid”
Pineapple on Pizza is apparently considered a criminal offense given the reaction to the people from Naples, Italy where Pizza originated from. I wouldn’t be surprised if the people over there would enact a death penalty law against people who would make pineapple pizza over there.
I can kinda sympathize with where they’re coming from. It’s like putting Orange or Chocolate on Indo-Pak Foods like Chicken Biryani which is a savory cuisine. Or a Banana Zinger Burger. I’ll at the very least try it out just out of pure morbid curiosity. But, if I don’t like it then whatever to each their own.
