The US military has said a missing unmanned spyplane was involved in a joint CIA military operation on Afghanistan's border with Iran. The
Pentagon has admitted the RQ 170 Sentinel drone is lost somewhere in Iran. But the US disputes Iranian claims to have shot down the state-of-the-art
spy aircraft. News of the CIA involvement is causing controversy in Washington. Congressman Dennis Kucinich told Sky News the involvement of
America's spy agency was a worrying development. "We have to be very careful that we don't stumble into a wider war here. If we are in Iran's
airpace with anything that belongs to the US, that's a provocation," he said. The revelation coincides with speculation a covert war is being waged
in Iran by America and Israel to thwart Iranian nuclear ambitions. A series of events remain unexplained. Iranian scientists have been assassinated,
in one case by a bomb strapped to his vehicle by a hit team on a motorbike. A huge explosion at a top secret missile base in the Iranian desert
appears to have killed the lead scientist on missile development. Mr Kucinich said he is worried these events mean the region is sliding towards
greater conflict. "The events have been confirmed, so when you start to connect the dots, those dots start to spell the word war," he said. The US
has justified the use of drones in Afghan airspace as necessary to keep watch over American forces, but CIA involvement seems to confirm their use to
gather intelligence beyond the border with Iran. The Sentinel drone, thought to be 65ft in wingspan, is one of the world's most secret aircraft.
Packed with surveillance electronics, it is capable of staying in the air for days.
Not surprsing to me that the CIA were involved in this. So now we definately know a drone was lost in Iran. US are saying they lost it. Iran saying
they shot it down. Probably impossible to tell who is telling the truth.
Either way the fact that the CIA are operating spy drones in Iranian airspace and that is now public knowledge can do no good for US/Iran relations
and further pushes forwards the wheels of war in my opinion. I have to say fair play to sky news on this one for touching on a conspiracy angle
without poking fun. (even though i hate sky with a passion).
I would just like to restate this quote
"The events have been confirmed, so when you start to connect the dots, those dots start to spell the word war,
This coming from a US congressman. So for all you people saying there is no chance of a war with Iran in the near future i think you should reconsider
your position because i fully believe there is a very high possibility of this...and it wont be pretty for anyone.
