Iran threatend to shoot down any UFO's over it's airspace, this refers to US drones above their airspace.

Iran Accuses the US for esspionage and stays with their claims that the they do not have any illegal nuclear projects.

The unnamed US officials confirmed that UAVs were indeed flying over Iran looking for clues of illegal nuclear weapons programs.

TEHRAN, Iran - Iran's intelligence chief on Wednesday accused the United States of flying spy drones over its nuclear sites and threatened to shoot down the unmanned surveillance crafts.

Intelligence Minister Ali Yunesi comments backed a report in The Washington Post on Sunday that quoted unnamed U.S. officials as saying the drones have been flying over Iran for nearly a year to seek evidence of nuclear weapons programs.

U.S. spying activities over Iranian airspace have been going since a long time ago," Yunesi told reporters.

Iran claims there are no illegal nuclear projects going on, but the US doesn't want to take any chances, it's also interesting they mentioned they are shooting down any UFO's they encounter, ofcourse this will probably refer to the US UAV's (Unmanned Aerial Vehicles) anove their airspace.

I personally think the recon missions are the precursor to the invasion later this year, but I could very well be mistaken.

It's a scary thought that two rogue nations have nuclear projects, one of them claims to have nuclear weapons (referring to North Korea).

Good, Iran and any other country should shoot down UFOs. Airspace invasion is an act of war and should be treated as such.

Who are they declaring war on as attributed to "an act of war" if those "aircraft" are being described as UFO's? I was under the impression that UFO's implied "unidentified flying objects"?

This isn't really new news is it? I thought not too long ago Iran said they would shoot down any unidentified aircrafts in their airspace, are they just now clarifying that they know the ufa's are American and will take action?

by the strictest terms aircraft entering a foreign countries airspace can be concidered an act of war.

Since the US has admited to doing so, I think Iran is justified in declaring war on the US... they just need some targets they can actually hit

Your correct worldwatcher, but at that time, Iran was not aware that those UFO's could be US. UCAV aircraft. Now that within the past week or so, the US has openly declared that they have been monitoring Iran with UCAV's (for nearly a year), Iran has found it necessary to reiterate itself (which we all know that they have on a number of news fronts) and declare that they will now shoot down all UFO's and UCAVs.


Iran has just amended/clarified its first declaration of such, as you have pointed out.

And if "by the strictest terms" that was the applied case and nature of international implied law of national sovereignty, then WWIII would have broken out many, many years ago, huh, Jehosephat? How many such occurances have happened from the Korean War time period to today? Seen any nation declare war based on those "strictest terms aircraft entering a foreign countries airspace " that you have mentioned and brought forth?!

UCAV's? As in "unmanned combat air vehicle??" UCAV's are different then normal recce UAV's in that they have the ability to strike a target!!

Since there has been all kinds of speculation this morning I might as well get in on it. What if one of these UCAV's retaliated against a SAM site outside the nuclear facility for Iran's "Common Front" agreement with Syria. This would explain the AAA fire reported earlier and the explosion near the nuclear facility, and now this threat to shoot down any UAV's over Iranian territory. I for one don't buy that Dam story that's now circulating, but I doubt we'll ever really know what happened.

boy, are the aliens gonna be *pissed*! We'd better get on the radio and make sure they know it's not the whole world shooting down their scout ships!

A few UFO's shot down, and the Ayatollah's gonna find himself at the wrong end of a serious Grey-performed anal probing!
