Iran Fires On US Drone, Pentagon Confirms

Iranian Fighter Jets Shoot At Unmanned US Drone

Two Iranian Su-25 fighter jets were caught on video firing on an unarmed US Air Force Predator drone as it crossed the Persian Gulf last week.

The jets were caught on the drone’s camera using stills and video as they fired at it multiple times on November 1, reports CNN. The incident raises fresh concerns within the US government about Iran’s military aggression in the Gulf oil shipping lanes, a crucial place for international trade.

US officials have said that the drone was in international airspace east of Kuwait performing a routine maritime surveillance when the incident occurred.

While the drone was not hit by the Iranian fighter jets, the incident is still of concern to the Pentagon. Two US officials, who declined to be identified, explained that the Iranian jets were part of the country’s Revolutionary Guard Corps force, which has become more confrontational than the regular Iranian military forces.

The drone’s still and video cameras captured the incident as the two Su-25s approached the Predator and fired their on-board guns. The pilots fired shots for a while that went underneath the drone, but they were never successful in hitting it.

The Pentagon confirmed the incident occurred and spokesman George Little confirmed the incident, saying the drone was not downed and was over international waters at the time, notes CBS News.

Little added that this is the first time an unmanned US aircraft was shot at in international airspace over the Gulf. He added that the US has informed Iran they will continue to conduct surveillance flights in the area in international airspace.

Iran has been incredibly protective of the Gulf region ever since tensions between them and the United States began. They have already warned the US not to send military ships to the Persian Gulf, which is a crucial body of water for the world’s oil shipping routes. The US has ignored the warning.

The reports on the Iranian fighter jets firing on an unmanned US drone come as Iran announced they will be holding “massive” air defense maneuvers in the east beginning this weekend.

    OBAMA THE FISCAL WIZARD WILL FIX IT ALL RIGHT?

    at the rate he is going Most All Americans soon to become Slaves.

    Your Taxes are going to go up and up and up till you think they are trying to go to the moon on your pay check.

    The US Dollar creditworthiness on World markets just went to from a negative 10 to a negative 100, the U.S. Treasury note or Dollar to fall World Wide.

    Now you would think if one keeps doubling your debt every year you would look for a new business manager and accountant or put both of them in jail. Now for them to give away your money to other Countries that say they hate you because you can read and carry a Bible is wicked.

    If you want a country to not grow keep on taxing them to death, only the government leaders and their friends that are rich will live well the rest are Slaves to them.

    Americans if you truly want the USA to stay strong and grow and for all to live will here, tell everyone in any Government office to lower all taxes. If they will not get them out of office not in less they are your friends and you are rich. Or you never learned to count or keep a bank account. you cannot spend more then you have and keep doing this we use to call this stealing. Why let our Government Leaders do it.

    After ISRAEL Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu gave the UN a speech showing a line that will not be crossed to all the world. Hillary Rod ham Clinton could not get to talk to ISRAEL's Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu Fast Enough.

    Be for this she said "Further talks with IRAN" on Monday. I would say she is saying the white house is talking to a nation that has said many times the USA is the enemy. That they feel us as a FOE showing hatred to us and Threatening us and other Nations Many Times.
    To not talk with are ALLIES make no sense at all. Hillary Rod ham Clinton must have been way too busy or too slow in the head. To See Right from wrong.

    Do not Be Mislead.
    NEXT THE SUNDAY FUNNIES TO GO.

    Wolf In Sheep Skin.
    The LORD's Word in the Bible tells all to beware of many.
    that will be False Prophets.

    Even the Devil cannot fake or hide that he is not.
    a Christian. The Devil will always lead you to HELL.

    Most all on Earth, know that there is but one GOD.
    The Prophets of Our Lord and GOD would not tell others to.
    hurt or harm others or to sin. But the wicked will.

    So how can so many be blind to think a Christian, a Prophet.
    or anyone that wants to go to Heaven would tell others to do harm to one or.
    anyone. Or to sin or to keep THREATENING OTHERS Making many live in Terror.

    Read the Bible.
    do good and Help others.
    and Listen to are Lord not Wolfs in sheep skin. Or the
    Wicked.

    September 11 , 2001 the middle east party in the.
    streets celebrating. Christian why do you think they would do any think.
    different each and every September 11,. Only weak Leaders will let this happen.

Many of these Countries have let this kind of barbaric and savage behavior go on for Years doing little to stop it.
