A senior Iranian military official says Iran's Army has shot down a remote-controlled reconnaissance drone operated by the US military in the eastern part of the country on Sunday 4 December . The source said on Sunday that Iran Army's electronic warfare unit successfully targeted the American-built RQ-170 Sentinel stealth aircraft after it crossed into Iranian airspace over the border with neighboring Afghanistan.". According to state run Press TV the source added that "due to the clear border violation, the operational and electronic measures taken by the Islamic Republic of Iran's Armed Forces against invading aircraft will not remain limited to the Iran's borders."

I havent heard a response (or even some kind of confirmation) by the US.

2. Over heard at starbucks
I heard a guy say this to a nice looking girl at Starbucks this morning.. MADE ME PAUSE

He said
"Well if you look at it from the other country's point of view.
and it would be hard to see it from Iran's side."

"But try this on..
Pretend in your mind Mexico, is more powerful.. than USA. and more Aircraft. Flying drones over California or any state they want tracking down their drug cartel terrorists."

He went on to say "how would you react if Mexico's president Felipe Caldern had declared that he could kill Mexican citizens anywhere he need to because of his war on cartels and the Mexican military had armed drones hovering above you right now!"

And in the past he would say sorry about the Collateral damage and we may give your family 800.00 to 20k for the dead family members.. and if we kill the whole family.. we get off with no cost.

She shot back we don't do things like that! We are a democracy.

Well he replied well Obama has given himself permission to kill anyone he wants all he has to do I say they are a terrorist.
No arrest no trial no jury, no conviction.
As simple as getting the media and public opinion to go along with it.

And if we are a Democracy why are we spending money on killing all over the world and are talking about cutting SSI and Medical for the old.
The citizens don't want the "WAR ON WHO"

She said look at Obama he is stopping the war's..

He goes "don't get me started I voted for Obama. and I have never been more disappointed in a person."

But cut the budget on Military.. not going to happen.

Even skinner and the moderators were apparently unaware of it:

So how is Joe Average supposed to know?
