Well maybe now Iran should be figuring out if they want to go to war. Maybe they should have groups like ATS with people who know very little about anything yelling for WAR WAR WAR!! I mean that's what happened when the shoe was on the other foot!

Sorry...I'm not hearing "WAR WAR WAR!!" here.
Seems most folks don't want another war.
Trump certainly doesn't.

It came within 1000 yrds. of the USS Boxer...after continuously ignoring warnings.
You think they shouldn't have shot it down?

Hey, Iran, send all of your drones out. I bet the US navy has more missiles than you have drones.

Unless, of course, it was on a mission similar to a little boat that approached the U.S.S. Cole in the 90's. Then, it is more than just "revenge" it is prudent self-protection.

Right?

Iran seems to have a problem understanding boundaries, my space, your space. The US navy is having to instruct them in the matter.

No.

Obviously, it was yet another blatant attempt by the US to foment another war. After all, it's a call for War, War, War, right??[/sarc]

By this account, it was warned several times, continued on it's course towards Boxer, and was shot down.

Next time? Heed the warnings!!

Absolutely. ID'd as a threat, multiple warnings given...all warnings ignored.



BANG.

Any questions?

I think it can already be found in an old Sharper Image catalog.
