Response to Dennis Donovan (Original post)

20. People just doing their job . . .

Trump, distracting from impeachment.

Hannity, scare mongering with vague stories of B52 s in the air, heading for Iran.

Aircraft controllers, trying to keep flights to a schedule.

A SAM operator, with a twitchy trigger finger.

Airline passengers, trusting the airline, the controllers, the alert levels.

All just doing their own thing.

End result? Anyone mention 'collateral damage'?

Not the first time this scenario has played out. Last time, a BUK operator mistook a commercial airliner for a Russian transport plane.
