    I think they will stupidly claim otherwise, because it is against stated regime policy to pay a ransom for hostages, but they held up the money until the hostages were outside Iranian airspace.

    old news is old

    haha, politico link.

    So Luuv hooked me up with a custom rank.

    Which means I only have two more prizes to claim, plus an image sig.

    So that's where we stand.

    From what I understand, We owed them a lot of money so we paid that debt off and Iran was like, "Ok, we cool. Here's you're home boys we had for a while. We cool"

    It was ransom, if it was just a routine transfer of funds or back payment then why would they have to circumvent the sanctions in place which would have prevented the electronic transfer of funds? Why would they withhold the flight of the cash until the hostages cleared Iranian airspace? Why would the flights happen on the same day?

    I think in times like these, we should ask ourselves, "What would Saint Ronaldus Maximus do?"

    Trump 2016, that's what.

    "Iranson" is the sort of buzzword I'd expect from a Jingaidiot.
