A startling new military video shows why tensions between Iran and the US have hit boiling point. Now, Iran says it is “ready for war”.


Video Link

News Source

Unfortunately, the video does not really show much, but it's the escalation more than anything.

Also, "they are ready for war"?? Um, you should be ready for it to rain Sh*t........no boots are going to be placed in Iran (I don't think anyway). Every single asset you have will be made into inch square puzzle sized bits. Why F* with the US? I just don't get it?


US let its drown be shot down by a decades behind enemy....

Oil... and oil this. And oil that. And oil reserve. And oil front ancient glory holes....


Oil... do we seriously sacrifice more of our epic and beyond anything capability military for oil?!

So they keep it up they may get it

Another war looming?

There must be something much more important going on that the World Governments don't want us to know or see... as our thoughts are diverted! what is it?

Even if it was in international waters - which remains to be proven - surely shooting down an unmanned drone is hardly 'an act of war'.

People should die - on both sides - because a drone was shot down?

Please lets put this into perspective - no-one died, no-one has invaded your country....do people really deserve to die because of this?



It's really a good thing no one died.

If they had killed 34 US servicemen in international waters then we would have to call them our best buddies in the Middle East, give them foreign aid and weapons technology, and let them buy our politicians. The last thing the US needs is a bunch of government bureaucrats with dual US/Iranian citizenship and an American Iranian Political Action Committee influencing our elections.

I see most of the posters seem to miss the point about President Trump and war with Iran. Since I'm not a fan of the sitting President I was a little surprised when he called off retaliatory strikes. His reasoning was sound that it was to much against them since no one had been killed.

However, if Iran really wanted war they would of started it. They understand that war with either the US or Israel will go to a declared war and a preemptive nuclear strike which will annihilate their military power. No one will really care except to say naughty naughty and start picking up the pieces. It's now that kind of world. My best,

Where was the drone shot down?

I can only imagine what the U.S. would do if Iran was flying a drone in U.S. airspace


Did you miss the news that Russia has been violating US airspace in Alaska several times over the past year? If you did, it was probably missed by you because the US didn't shoot the planes down and turn it into a massive news story, instead the Air Force intercepted and escorted the violating flights back out of US airspace.

The drone in question, though, wasn't violating Iranian airspace. It was shot down over the water and fell into the water.


The Russians were NOT in US airspace. To be inside US airspace they would have to have violated the 12 nautical mile limit. The Russians are flying in international airspace but within the US identification zone ADIZ (Air Defense Identification Zone)

See United States and Canada.

Wiki Air Defense Identification Zone link

For example - see bold - they are flying in international airspace but within a zone of identification. The zone is NOT US airspace.


Aircraft assigned to North American Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD) positively identified and intercepted Russian bombers and fighter jets entering the Alaskan Air Defense Identification Zone (ADIZ) two times last week. On May 20, two pairs of F-22s and an E-3 Airborne Early Warning and Control System (AWACS) from NORAD identified and intercepted a total of four Tupolev Tu-95 strategic bombers and two Su-35 fighter jets entering the Alaskan ADIZ. Specifically, two of the Russian bombers were intercepted by two F-22s, and a second group of bombers with Su-35 fighters was intercepted later by two additional F-22s, while the E-3 provided overall surveillance. The Russian bombers and fighters remained in international airspace and at no time did the aircraft enter United States or Canadian sovereign airspace. On May 21, two pairs of F-22 fighter jets, each with an E-3 AWACS aircraft, intercepted Tu-95s and Su-35s jets entering the Alaskan ADIZ. Specifically, two Russian bombers entered the ADIZ and were intercepted by two F-22s while an E-3 provided overall command and control. The bombers exited and then re-entered the Alaskan ADIZ accompanied by two Su-35 fighter jets. NORAD committed an additional two F-22s and E-3 to relieve the initial intercept aircraft. A KC-135 air-to-air refueling aircraft supported both of NORAD’s intercept teams. The Russian aircraft remained in international airspace and at no time entered United States or Canadian sovereign airspace. NORAD has intercepted an average of approximately six to seven Russian sorties annually entering its ADIZ since Russia resumed long range aviation patrols in 2007. This is the fourth and fifth intercepts this year and the second day in a row that Russian bombers have flown into the Alaskan ADIZ.
