    Wonderful...


    (CNN) -- Iran's military on Sunday claimed it shot down a U.S. drone into eastern Iran.
    State media cited a military official who identified the aircraft as an RQ-170 Sentinel.

    NATO's International Security Assistance Force said a U.S. unarmed reconnaissance aircraft was flying a mission over western Afghanistan -- which borders Iran -- last week when operators lost control.

    A U.S. official with knowledge of the incident said the crew operating the unmanned drone reported a loss of flight control just before the drone went down

    JHC...what about a fucking self-destruct???? They were saying tonight they probably got the thing almost undamaged!!!
    May the FORCE be with you!

    First I head it was shot down.

    Then I heard it was taken over electronically. I hope not. That would be bad, m'kay.

    Now I'm hearing it was operator error.

    Either way, look for Chinese RQ-170s soon. :mad:

    Why is everyone so afraid of other countries using drones? After all, drones are a perfectly legitimate form of warfare and they are very precise and they fit perfectly into combat situations.

    Iran isn't fighting any big wars with anyone, neither is China. hmmmmm?

    or maybe building flying death-robots and sending them all over the world to assassinate people in countries we are not at war with just because we can wasn't the best idea. Some people were against drones along time ago, saying they were opening up a can of worms, but I guess they were all just libtard moonbats.

    They knew where it was when it went down. Barry was notified and was given the option to drop a JDAM on it. Barry decided to do nothing.

    No JB he's saying what he honestly believes.

    Which to me is more frightening than if he were just making shit up to piss us off.

    It would be great if it was able to self-destruct once it was moved to a secure Iranian military site, though. They need to think about that for the next model year.
