    Iran says that all their drones returned, and that Washington might have shot down their own drone. Either that or they're making it up to aggravate the situation.

    "We have not lost any drone in the Strait of Hormuz nor anywhere else. I am worried that USS Boxer has shot down their own UAS [Unmanned Aerial System] by mistake!", Deputy Foreign Minister Abbas Araqchi said on Twitter, referring to the recent incident.
    In the meantime the US rejects all claims that it was an American drone and said they have proof - as usual. It takes a while though to make up the photo, so we'll just have to wait.

    Then there is also the possibility that the Iranians, who seems to be quite talented in electronic warfare, might have messed up the signals. But that's anyone's guess.

    I'm awaiting a better offer from those cheapskates. :evil:

    BTW, the rumor is it wasn't "shot down." We used another method to crash it.

    I wouldn't doubt it as desperate as the war industry needs the US to engage Iran in a war for profits.

    Do you think this would also be about profits. I keep thinking it is about fanatical religion I mean it is Pence, Pompeo and Bolton who are wanting it. Your military apparently do not

    https://consortiumnews.com/2019/07/...nobel-peace-laureates-all-say-no-war-on-iran/

    and now there are some people called 'faith leaders' obviously not the Christian Right who are also speaking up against it

    There may be hope yet.

    And both have a million times more credibility than the international misinformation complex that nearly all of the media belongs to.

    That's right the Pentagon has more credibility than cnn, nbc,bbc RT and all that crap combined.
    Pentagon says we got an Iranian drone, we got an Iranian drone.

    Pentagon also said Saddam had WMD and other ****.

    Usually evrything your Pentagon says is debunked as lie within next 3 years.

    Since Iran usualy is more trustworthy than USA, i guess the iranians are right.

    What i wonder is...are you aware that all of Europe sees you guy as absolute crooks?

    Are you aware that we don't care how you wrongly see us.

    Point blank the Iraqis had WMDs. The only thing we were wrong about is their condition and the fact that Saddam could not have used them because he didn't know where they were. We just knew they had made them and had neither destroyed or used them.

    Again to all in Europe, you're welcome. Sincerely. America.

    "After" means later than the US claims to have downed the drone. Tell me how a downed drone could take video from above the USS Boxer.

    A snorkel.

    Someone in this thread spoke of how technologically advanced the Iranians are so it stands to reason they could doctor a video if they wanted to. If they felt they needed to.

    Your fat foreign minister just tingeled through all of Europe to find allies against Iran. He did the complete tour and got not one.

    So it seems you do care.

    Tell your orange monkey in chief, he should not send his fat underlings to beg for support.

    Meanwhile we think to open INSTEX for oil and buy iranian oil worth 60 billion €

    No this isn't true. British Intelligence reported that Iraq was not much of a danger and if you wanted to go after the bigger danger you would be better going after Iran. They were told that they had to go back and present some danger that would legitimate a war with Iraq. They disclosed this at the UK enquiry into that war.

    That funny but typical. Look, Washington feels as long as it owns the MSM, they can lie to their hearts content and no one will be the wiser - that is unless they go on foreign or alternative sites. I know that Russia had proof that the drone Iran shot down was in Iranian territorial waters. This might be why Pres. Trump cancelled the attack.

    The military does the ordering and buying, and the military industrial complex are the companies that make the weapons. I believe some members of congress have financial interests in the weapon factories, so their votes are questionable.

    Ah OK, so in today's world it does not matter whether it is a militarily good idea, it just matters who is going to make money. Sounds a heck of a lot like corruption . ;)
