Trumps Total Fuckup (Iran) Official Thread

Numbers vary but it looks to be a classic case of crowd asphyxiation.  Numbers as high as 56 dead.

TEHRAN, Iran (AP) — A stampede broke out Tuesday at the funeral for a top Iranian general slain in a U.S. airstrike, and at least 56 people were killed and more than 200 were injured as thousands thronged the procession, Iranian news reports said.

The stampede took place in Kerman, the hometown of Revolutionary Guard Gen. Qassem Soleimani, as the procession began, said Pirhossein Koulivand, head of Iran’s emergency medical services.

There was no information about what set off the crush. Online videos showed people lying apparently lifeless, their faces covered by clothing. Emergency crews performed CPR on others as people wailed and cried out to God....

You probably misses this act of blatant aggression that took place here yesterday.

I'm waiting to hear if Governor Abbott is sending a Texas Ranger to Tehran,

 BREAKING NEWS:  Texas Public Utility Commission Allegedly Hacked by Iran

Breaking news on 1/28/20 | Published @ 7:38 AM Central



As of 7:38 AM Central, the official Public Utility Commission of Texas (PUCT) website is offline, apparently hacked and defaced by someone claiming to be associated with Iran. Instead of the usual website that greets visitors trying to visit puc.texas.gov, visitors are now greeted with a message that claims the website was hacked by an “Anonymous Iranian.”
.
US government officials have repeatedly and recently warned that utilities in the United States could be targeted by Iran as part of a cyber warfare campaign. To be clear, as of now it’s unclear if this hacking was state-sponsored, a private individual operating in (and/or support of) Iran, or someone simply using the moniker “Anonymous Iranian.”

While a government website being hacked is obviously a serious concern and breach in security, at the moment there’s nothing to indicate that any other system belonging to the PUCT — such as the “the grid,” the often-referenced target by security experts — has been compromised.

We’ve yet to see a statement issued by the PUCT or government officials, but it’s safe to assume that a thorough investigation will take place to determine if any other information, systems, etc, were accessed.

This is breaking news. We’ll update this post with more information as it becomes available.

8:57 AM NEW UPDATE: PUCT’s website appears to have been restored.

An oil tanker has caught fire in the Persian Gulf near the coast of the United Arab Emirates.

Reports on Wednesday suggested that the tanker caught fire some 40 kilometers off the coast of Sharjah, a port in the UAE. Preliminary investigations indicate the fire broke out aboard the vessel as a result of an accident during a maintenance-related operation.

They said that the heavy load vessel, Norwegian ship MV Osprey, was manned when it caught fire around 4 pm local time. The number of crew was not known.

Sources told The National, an Emirati news website, that the UAE coast guard had assisted with the operation to put out the blaze and all the crew have been rescued.

The Associated Press cited US officials as saying that they were aware of the incident in the Persian Gulf, a region which has been the scene of rising tensions between Iran and the United States since Washington withdrew from an international deal on Iran’s nuclear program in 2018.

A part of the world this dog has no reason to visit.  I'm afraid if I went there 'routine maintenance' would get me!

And remember:  Donald Trump said  that immigrants from Norway would be more welcome to move to the United States than immigrants from “shithole countries” like as Haiti or an African nation. This could be a passive aggressive move by Iran.

Or not!
