Yep, Subz has a point.
If one country flies tactical reconnaissance drones over the other, typically that would be classified as an act of war.
If any country tried to do that to the states, the states would immediately state that the country that launched the drones has committed an act of
war, and as a result, a retaliation would ensue.
For some reason, they seem to think it's OK to do that to other nations though.
I'd be willing to bet that the US is waiting for Iran to shoot one of them down, and use it as an excuse to launch the first major campaign, under
the guise of a recovery effort.
The US is trying to give Iran every possible reason to want to do something about their presence. Only, Iran doesn't seem to be playing their game. I
guarantee you Iran has tracked those drones, and had ample chances to knock them out of the sky.
Clearly, Iran has already read that play book.
Unfortunately, this won't deter the states. They will continue to shove Iran in the hopes that they might hit back.
Lets hope Iran can continue to keep their cool.
