They're still calling it a "hard landing"

Quote
Rescue forces will reach the helicopter location in "a few minutes", the head of Iran's Red Crescent Society Pirhossein Kolivand has told state media.

He said that they were approximately 2km from where the hard landing is thought to have taken place.

I heard that Ebrahim Raisi had information that would lead to Hilary Clinton’s arrest and was leading a convoy of mercenaries under arms to Moscow to tell Putin about it.

Either that, or Allah just doesn't give a damn about the POS.

No impact, really.

The president of Iran isn't the leader of Iran. He's more like the vice president.

The true head of Iran's power structure is the unelected Supreme Leader.

The president of Iran doesn't even control the military. That Supreme Leader is the... Supreme Military Leader.

Talk that the International Criminal Court (ICC) may issue arrest warrants against Netanyahu and other Israeli officials

https://www.foxnews.com/world/israel-is-concerned-icc-could-issue-arrest-warrants-against-netanyahu-senior-officials-report
Has the ICC issued arrest warrants for Hamas' leadership?

Apparently yes to your question

Quote
An International Criminal Court prosecutor announced Monday that he has filed applications for arrest warrants against Israel Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, Defense Minister Yoav Gallant and Hamas leaders for allegedly committing "war crimes" during the conflict in Gaza.

Prosecutor Karim Khan said in a statement that based on evidence collected and examined by his office, he has "reasonable grounds" to believe Netanyahu and Gallant "bear criminal responsibility for ... war crimes and crimes against humanity committed on the territory of the State of Palestine."

He said those alleged crimes include "starvation of civilians as a method of warfare" and "intentionally directing attacks against a civilian population."

Khan also said he is seeking arrest warrants for Hamas leader Yahya Sinwar, its top political leader Ismail Haniyeh and its military commander Mohammed Dief.

The SL has a lot power yes but the pres has a lot on influence on that power plus Raisi was considered to be next in line to be SL.

The president is only one of many voices of influence on the Supreme Leader. If anything, the Assembly of Experts is likely most influential as they have final say on the appointment of the Supreme Leader.

The loss of one of those voices isn't going to change Iran's posture anytime soon.

Can a non-corporeal entity offer condolence?

I can understand an Ambassador or SecState saying something like "on behalf of the American People I express my heartfelt and sincere <insert emotion here>" but this isn't worded as a mechanism of plural-thru-individual proxying. 

The United States cannot offer condolence any more than Raytheon can sing Happy Birthday to someone.

I'm surprised that they didn't backtrack and offer heartfelt condolences for Orange Man blowing up Soleimani.

Maybe we can get Joe to send Kamala to Tehran for Raisi's funeral?

Brinton can even pick up a few new dresses on the way

    Reuters is reporting that most of the aid coming into Gaza from the U.S. military's pier since Saturday was stolen by Palestinians as it made its journey to the UN's warehouse in nearby Deir El Balah.
    * 11 trucks out of 16 trucks were cleaned out on Saturday
    * No deliveries on…

UN lowered its flag to honor the butcher.

I've said it many times. Defund that trash org and kick them out. Remodel the building for our vets to have housing.

Well someone threw what is described as a "incendiary device" onto the roof of my local Krispy Kreme
https://www.wlky.com/article/krispy-kreme-bardstown-road-fire-video-louisville/60859519

Found this and it makes me wonder

According to CNN, Egypt sabotaged the peace agreement.

https://www.cnn.com/2024/05/21/politics/sources-say-they-were-duped-by-egypt-changing-ceasefire-terms-for-hamas/index.html

Makes one wonder WTF were the Egyptians thinking?

I suspect Egypt is thinking that it looks like the longer this goes on, the worse Israel looks on the international stage, and the less support they have in the west.  The Arab world would LOVE to see Israel's support in the West dry up, or even see a good decrease.

Egypt gives zero *expletive deleted*s if a couple million Palestinians have to die to damage Israel, and even better if they do it to themselves.

It's pretty evident that virtually none of the Arab countries in the Middle East really care about the Palestinians, and just see them as a convenient tool.
