IRAN had shot down an unmanned surveillance plane in the south amid reports that the United States is planning military strikes on Iranian nuclear facilities, a press report said today.

"This plane had taken off from Iraq and was filming border areas," a report in the hardline Jumhuri Eslami newspaper said.
It added the Islamic Republic "officials have obtained information from the plane system and recordings", without giving any further details.

US publications reported over the weekend that the White House was studying options for military strikes against Iran's nuclear facilities to pressure Tehran to abandon its controversial nuclear program.

I guess the self-destruct on the UAV didn't work... or maybe the Yanks "wanted" it shot down and the onboard potential "dis-info" recovered and outted as truth to the Iranians.
This will heat things up. I'm still thinkin' Easter N-Strikes.
Thanx much for the link!

Thanks for that, why is it no other news channels have picked up on this?

Well CX, flying aircraft manned or otherwise in somebody elses airspace can be openly perceived to be an act of aggression. Can't have this sort of thing getting out too much and giving the impression that whoever sent the aircraft is doing wrong, that just wouldn't do. It's the Iranians that are bad so the media presstitutes will only focus on anything negative on the part of the Iranians.
It's a bit like the 6 months or so running up to the invasion of Iraq when the RAF and USAF stepped up bombing of targets inside and outside of the no-fly zones, in an attempt to get Iraq to react.
