Actually we do but thanks for playing. Using your logic then Russia needs to withdraw completely as well.

Hypocrites are hypocrites …

Let’s agree to disagree, when a military Wessel targeting and killing innocent civilians is OK. While targeting a military Wessel by the Iranian military (killing no one) is not OK…!

I will never apologize for the United States of America — I don’t care what the facts are". Remember..?

That’s the history lesson for you, end of discussions...

Then you should find someone who can read to explain it to you since they state what I said.


there is no warning that they will be shot down in anything you posted, and you saying it's so doesn't make it true. all that's there is could and should, nothing that says they will be. maybe ifyou take up a remedial reading class and sharpen those skills a bit, you would see the difference.



Again if im not mistaken Russia has not done a stunt like that since.


although This is not a ship they are still harassing U.S. assets in the black sea area in Sep 2016


A U.S. Navy reconnaissance plane had a close encounter with a Russian fighter that came within 10 feet of the aircraft as it flew in international airspace over the Black Sea. It is the latest encounter between the two militaries that American officials have labeled "unsafe and unprofessional".
Russian Fighter Comes Within 10 Feet of US Navy Plane


so much for heeding your so called warning.

Yeah the airline was shot down after Iranian vessels targeted one of your helicopters. Any reason you are intentionally ignoring that fact let alone dragging something up from more than 25 years ago? That pertains to the current situation how?

As for civilians being killed I dont see you condemning the intentional targeting of civilian infrastructure, including hospitals by Syria / Russia.

So do civilian deaths only matter to you when the US is involved?

You can end your discussion any time you wish. I will continue to opt for posting the truth in response to your comments.

The only acceptable response occurs if its, our helicopter / naval / air forces, IN Iranian territory. Outside of it they are playing with fire.


SO its OK for Iran to do the same thing to US in exactly the same way using the same thinking?

May I suggest that all this 'fear' of iran is driven by two things, Oil and israel. The US is under the control of the people of people whose alligence is to a very small but very powerful country in the mid east and has been for a long time.

Why is it that israeli citizens are the only foreigners who are permitted to be US politicians and govt appointees. This in inset self shows whose got the power.

Iran is the one doing it - not the US.

Stop provoking Iran might be a good idea.

More desparate and deliberate ramping up of strife and tension, by the outgoing US admin and their party IMO.

The US points weapons at others all the time...you see, most weapons have sights on them, either optical scopes, or HI-Res cameras...these are used to inspect and view vessels, targets, people and aircraft with among other things.

Pointing a weapon at someone's helicopter is NOT a serious problem, as they are probably only observing the copter through the gun-cam or weapon sights.

If shots were fired from those looking down the weapons, then it could have been considered serious...but looking at someone through the scope?

Nah.

How is the US provoking Iran in international waters?

Yet Iran is the one confronting US vessels in international waters.

Just as a reminder to the participants in this thread that Iran has supplied munitions that have killed 500+ American soldiers during our last visit to Iraq. We had not provoked them to aid the fight against the great infidel.

Obama will transfer another 350 million dollars to Iran, to keep them from pointing those little guns at us anymore. At least for a while...

Both sides are playing with fire. Iran is on the hitlist as they wont to install their central banks. America will after Sryia falls do the job... An oil company with an army..
