#3 Maybe not:
Wednesday's crash was the latest in a string of air disasters in Iran involving mostly Russian-built airliners. A Ukrainian An-140 aircraft flew into a mountainside Dec. 23, 2002, while preparing to land at an airport near the central city of Isfahan, killing all the estimated 46 scientists aboard. In February 2002, the Russian-made Tupolev Tu-154 airliner, carrying 119 people, smashed into snow-covered mountains not far from its destination of Khorramabad, 230 miles southwest of Tehran.

#6 Should of known this was coming:
A military plane crash in mountainous southern Iran killed 302 of the nation's elite Revolutionary Guards. The crash was the deadliest in a string of plane accidents that the government has blamed on US sanctions preventing the country from repairing and replacing its aging fleet.

#7 Uh, how could the US withold spare parts for Russian-made airplanes? They may want to talk to Putin about their maintenance problems...
