Iran says it's 'completely ready for war' after US official confirms it shot down American drone
In a major provocation, Iran shot down an unarmed and unmanned U.S. Navy MQ-4C Triton drone while it was flying in international airspace over the Strait of Hormuz Thursday, a U.S. official told ABC News.

If they shot it down in international airspace, isn't that basically an act of war? Did Iran just give everyone the perfect excuse to light them up?

I think Iran has two groups fighting for control, and we just aren't being told about it. One doesn't want war with us and would probably love to be our ally. The other wants armageddon so they can be taken to Allah.

So shooting down an unmanned drone is 'an act of war'?
Only harm done is a perceived loss of pride.
Why would Iran be so stupid to do something like that?
