I am not into silly conspiracies that see an evil hand in almost every thing. However when it comes to the current Iranian regime then I'm willing to consider them. They seem to fit the agenda so here are a few of them that I heard today regarding the tragic crash of a Russian built airplane near city of Tehran:
1- The regime wanted to divert attention from the past 3-4 weeks bloodshed by blowing up an airplane.
2- The mullahs wanted to turn the majority pro-western Iranians against the western countries so they blew up the aircraft and now blaming it on western embargoes.
3- The regime wanted to direct the public anger at something minor like an airplane crash.
4- They had filled the aircraft with dissidents and political detainees and blew it up.
5- Majority of passengers were young guys and girl flying to Armenia to attend a concert by a famous Iranian-Armenian singer named Andy who recently sang for the Iranian democracy movement along with Jon Bon Jovi.
6- Georgian ambassador's family was on board this aircraft and the Russians blew it up.
And the silly rumors go on and on. But one thing is clear to me and it's the fact that in a non-transparent society where news media outlets are owned by the government and feed its people crap instead of real news then rumors start to fly. Rumors instead of factual news stories & reports spread like wild fire across the country and poison the minds. [+]
In any event, even if our gorgeous mullahs wanted to divert the world's attention from the recent bloodbath to a tragic plane crash, I think it is gonna backfire on them soon. It shows to the world that this regime has no respect for the lives of its citizens again whatsoever. People will die in Iran, unfortunately, as long this crazy and irresponsible system is in place.
