    Hardly a stealth drone if they where able to find, track, intercept and bring it down. I really don't think that Iran would sell this either as it will provide them with technology to enhance there own military with stealth technology in a couple of years.

    You're incredibly niave if you think that every single civilized nation doesn't have some form of espionage program actively poking around where they don't belong.

    Iran did what would be expected, they shot down a spy drone on their soil. Whether it is weaponised or not is insignificant, it's still invading and can still be assumed a threat. I wouldn't expect the US to apologise, they will probably demand the wreckage back, or deny the incident.

    Gratz to Iran on the epic lootz, I'm sure they'll get good money for that technology (assuming it doesn't self-destruct, but it was quoted to have minimal damage).
    The Allies would've definitely lost World War II if the Horde had taken part

    America should stop thinking they can police the globe like this. Mind your own business.

    Being political science major, I believe i am not. However, hidden things must remain hidden for a reason. When they are out in the open, problems arise, especially if one is caught over foreign sovereign soil.

    Wait, I thought Europe like us now solely based on the fact that we elected a black man! Damn Media lied to me again! lol.

    USA then, what ever you want. Funny though that most US citizens call themselves Americans and their country America.

    Even IF this is true (and that's a big if), the US won't comment on or acknowledge it unless it's proven, will adamantly deny it was ours if they show pictures of it, and will say it wasn't shot down recently even if they can prove it was from the US. Shortly thereafter, the whole thing will be forgotten, and spying will continue.

    The only thing to worry about is if Iran really does use this as an excuse and retaliate. But they're probably not that stupid, and are just using this to continue with their campaign to make the west look like the bad guys for not wanting a country like Iran to have nuclear weapons.

    they call themselves Americans cause they are in America. Canadians are also Americans.

    do you call yourself a European?

    I would think the dick-holes who invade every thread to bash someone's nation with the delusion that they are so much better would be the ones who should mind their own business. But maybe that's just me. Maybe internet politicians should stop thinking they have a grasp on anything other than DPS charts and can condemn the globe like this

    and the CIA doesnt officially acknowledge the use of drones

    Well, when the leader of a country has spoken threats against your nation and your closest ally in the region, and has a nuclear research program, I would think you'd be a little interested in what they are doing as well.

    And we aren't even sure if they really shot down a drone, it would be just like the Iranians to lie to put us on the spot and embarrass us in front of the rest of the World.

    I call shenanigans until Iran can produce actual proof of said shot down drone and not some fancy word play.

    Ofc. However being interesting is one thing, sending smth as stupid as a drone is different. There is more than enough corruption in Iran to do the espionage the old fashioned way. Or even ask the Russians. All would have been better than (allegedly) sending a "robot" to do a man's job.

    Europe likes you more than they did.

    America couldn't get any less popular than it was.


    not if the U.S doesnt acknowledge the plane.
    Since when did denial ever prevent war?

    The RQ170 is not an MQ9 predator... It's supposed to be stealth. It's supposed to be far more secured than any other US drone. The drone itself operates from Kandahar since over 4 years.
    But then remember that on some occasion, the un-encrypted video-transmission protocol sent by us drone has alegedly been intercepted by talibans. With the help of...? Iranians? Chinese (who are also testing weapons and devices in the hands of the insurgents against coalition forces... aren't rpg rockets called "chicom" there?) or pakistanis? Nobody knows.

    So it can be intox, it can be a montage in order to push things farther with Iran, it can be a lot of things.

    Let's wait for an official reaction... If there's one, as this drone isn't even supposed to exist.

    Wasn't so stealth eh? US dropped the ball on this, it shouldn't have been there, iran got it do as they will with it now. Personally it just seems like an unnecessary way for the us to add to the tension.
