  1. whoa. I didnt Know that such an incident happened. Yet, it does not suprise me. And then people have no Idea why any one would want to ram planes into American buildings.

  2. Although Iran Air 655 was shot down in cold blood nevertheless blowing up PanAm 103 didn’t achieve closure for the families of the victims. Families now grieve on both sides–neither Iran nor America were right in that tit-for-tat game.
