Iranian jets fire on U.S. drone

Two Iranian Su-25 fighter jets fired on an unarmed U.S. Air Force Predator drone in the Persian Gulf on November 1, the Pentagon disclosed on Thursday.
The incident, reported first by CNN, raised fresh concerns within the Obama administration about Iranian military aggression in crucial Gulf oil shipping lanes.
The drone was on routine maritime surveillance in international airspace east of Kuwait, 16 miles off the coast of Iran, U.S. officials said. The Predator was not hit.
At least it comes out a week after the elections.Rest In Peace America

Well, since it seems the mission seems to have jumped the 7 year unclass period, at least according to the WH... Talk about a bullshit excuse about why nothing was said about this until after the election.
I first heard about this a few days before the election. Maybe it's the cynic in me, but my first thought was Iran committed an overt act of war against us, and that of course the Obama admin didn't say a thing about it until after his reelection had been secured. Political expediency with this admin has just sickened me.In most sports, cold-cocking an opposing player repeatedly in the face with a series of gigantic Slovakian uppercuts would get you a multi-game suspension without pay.
In hockey, it means you have to sit in the penalty box for five minutes.

This isn't exactly a surprise. I'm sure our enemies are laughing their a__ off at how weak we are now. He's made our country appear to be inpotent to our enemies. And sadly we are.

They can't hit a freakin' DRONE?! Damn! If I couldn't hit a drone I sure as hell wouldn't go back to the boss and tell him I missed. I might tell him I couldn't find the damn thing. I might tell him some bullshit story about this SR-71 that went streaking by, and I tried to shoot it but it outran my bullets. But I sure as hell ain't going into his office and tell him about this unmanned TOY that I missed!
These guys just ain't all that good.

I hope everyone here is aware that you can impeach a president by a simple majority in the house. Trial in the Senate, sure. But if Republicans had the political will to impeach Obama they could.
