Supposedly, front line troops had to hold back whilst these triangles slowly hovered past them to the Iraq Army who were all dug in.
When the troops were given the all clear and advanced, all they saw were literally piles of soot / dust where there once was a human being.
It reminded me of the Batman movie where all the united nations reps. were turned into coloured dust and Batman / Robin had to effectively re-hydrate them all.
So I reckon that the triangles have some sort of advanced weaponry aboard them and the troops were told to keep quiet about it and not have any kind of mobile phone / camera with them that day etc.
Anybody read this breaking news?

hey guys, I am new to this thread, so my humble greetings to all of you here.
I must say what I have read so far has seriously impressed me with regards to the tech, that, if reports are true, were used over iraq.
How long before this tech is unvelied? More importantly why has it not?
By all accounts these planes (I use that word loosley now) would be very hard to shoot out of the sky - so what are they worried about.
Unless of course it is not tech that was genuinely developed - ie not US designed...
Anyhow, awesome nonetheless.

(2) Actually, it is not an AK-74, it is a MAK-90; so it came that way.

Back to topic...
I heard about the Black Manta's, why would they still be kept secret while the B-2 and the F-117 were already unveiled? because it was 3rd gen stealth? isn't the F-22 3rd gen stealth?
