I think Iran shot it down personally. I am skeptical that it just happened to "get lost". NATO was spying and they got caught with their hands in the cookie jar.

No one argues that it was spying. The question is just what happened to it in the moments before it stopped spying and what condition it's in now.


I'm still under the impression that it's pretty messed up. Considering the circumstance it would seem incredibly unlikely that it would miraculously find smooth ground to land after numerous bullets were allegedly shot at it.

I bet he totally sent that drone over Iran just so they could shoot it down and sell it to the Red Chinese! Smiley: tinfoilhat

I think there's a good chance of us being directly involved in Iran within the next five years, so yeah.

So what went wrong? While Iran maintains that it shot down the plane using anti-aircraft weaponry, sources inside and outside the military explain to Reuters that most signs indicate a technical malfunction because of the way the RQ-170 is programmed. "The aircraft is flown remotely by pilots based in the United States, but is also programmed to autonomously fly back to the base it departed from if its data link with U.S.-based pilots is lost," a defense analyst who consults for Lockheed told the news agency. "The fact that the plane did not return to its base suggests a 'catastrophic' technical malfunction," another industry insider familiar with drone technology attested. Additionally, "several current and former defense officials" said shooting down the drone was unlikely because of the aircraft's anti-radar coating and ability to fly at high altitudes.


It sounds as though, when it hit ground in Iran, it hit the ground hard. If it was trying to safely land, it would have been trying to safely land at its Afghani airbase, not in some remote Iranian valley.

Smiley: dubious

In Call of Duty, I swat those things out of the sky like gnats. How hard could they be to hit?

Thanks for continuing to toe the conservative conspiracy line. Gbaji will be along shortly to say "Not that Varus is right, but he's totally right..."

Er, what else would you need a pretext for, sending them a birthday card? A war. "give us our toy back, you stole it" "no" "invade". It's definitly too late to do any good in terms of keeping the cat in the bag regarding that hardware. I'm certain the chinese already have half of it by now. ****, the russians probably bought the other half on principal, not that they really need it.


Not really pretext unless you happen to really want to see a war with Iran. There is no way in which the US can actually be the "innocent" party in this. If Iran shot it down, then that implies that it was being flown through Iranian airspace without permission, and hence could actually be seen as an act of aggression by the USA. Now if it disappeared off the back of a truck in the continental US and suddenly ended up in Iranian hands, then there'd be some pretext.

Joph,

I know you hate and despise the military and think all the servicemen are incompetent idiots but I find it unbelievable that one of the most sophisticated pieces of technoloy just happened to crash and be recovered by iranians. More likely it big ear barry is doing everything he can to enable our enemies before he gets booted out of office. Muslims will weep when big ear barry loses next year.


I had something to say, but my mind has been blown by the sheer ignorance and stupidity of that statement.
