And here is the view from Australia.  It is worth thinking about.


Conversation overheard on the VHF Guard (emergency) frequency 121.5 MHz while flying from Europe to Dubai ..
 
Iranian Air Defence Site:   'Unknown aircraft you are in Iranian airspace. Identify yourself.'  
Aircraft:
   'This is a British aircraft. I am in Iraqi airspace.'  
Air Defence Site:
   'You are in Iranian airspace. If you do not depart our airspace we will launch interceptor aircraft!'  
Aircraft:
   'This is a Royal Air Force GR4 Tornado fighter. Send 'em up, I'll wait!'  
Air Defence Site:
   ( .... total silence)  
I love the RAF
