Didn't see this posted. Looks pretty intact. Interesting.. Something seems a little odd. What say you ATS? How many lines must I type for it to accept my post. I really do not have much else to say lol, is why there is a link. I wonder what "secrets" they will find from this. Guess time will tell.

Took me a while to get press tv loaded I wonder if they are under a DOS attack or something. I also noticed the presstv.com doesn't load for me anymore. Did they get that domain taken away or something? Maybe its just my comp?

PressTV is loading VERY slow for me to.

Something seems strange, it usually loads just like any other site.
I'm on a 30mbps connection so it should load pretty fast.

Well this is going to be very interesting, its looking more like Iran does have the capability of hacking a drone and landing it. I dont see any evidence of it crash landing, but Im no expert either. Someone should have pulled the KILL switch, and blown it up. Damn it, now China, Russia, Iran, and the rest of those Goons can just come right in and get the Technology handed to them on a silver platter, And it probably took some American Engineer years of R&D to get a prototype even built, all gone to the enemy, in the blink of an eye

There gonna reverse-engineer it!!!!


Waiiittttt....I think this is the same country who showed off their water-floating-car-planes a few weeks ago.

Nevermind.

It seem to have got lost and possibly run out of fuel and landed. Shot down would be a total mess.

Oh hang on, I'm on this crazy place, Aliens caught it and handed it to Iran.

This is what Aviationweek has to say about it. It might be older in design and technology for US but definitely not for Iran or China or other countries who can possibly benefit upto a great extent from the equipment (if indeed it was intact).

I hope they searched to make sure it doesn't have some self destruct mechanism on it before putting their hands all over it.

Why the alien skulls in the background, and why are they calling it a drone when the pic shows a saucer?

On a serious note it looks like North Korea has shared their haarp style plane killer tech. And of course they walked up and put a bullet in the guidance system to keep it down.....

Enemy? What has Iran, China, and Russia done to the United states to make them the enemy?
Read between the lines.

Is it possible that this drone plane is a trojan horse. Has some other agenda once it make it to its target location?

"Hey has anyone seen that jar of weaponized, radioactive, flesh eating, anthrax? I could have sworn I set it on that drone that was sitting over there?"

"We sent it to Iran"


I jest... but hey, if you fly something over another sovereign nation they have every right to shoot it down. Tell me if an armed Chinese drone was flying over DC we would not shoot it down? I certainly hope we would.

If the US gov. wants unlimited unrestricted access to Iran's "secret nuclear program" by all means lead by example. Let Chinese, Russian, Iranian, etc inspectors into our nuclear facilities and tell them your secrets and locations.


No? .. Though so. Not that I blame them. I would not do it either. But dont expect anyone else to want to.

The tech is outdated, and its partly why the option wasnt considered in going in and disposing of it...it just wasn't necessary/worth it. Risk starting a greater conflict over technology that is dated, or leave it be and let them try to reverse engineer it (which is no easy feat).

Id say the more logical of the two reasons above were reached. Still, this is a "pay day" for Iran, Russia, and china.

Americas technology has always been bad. American cars, f.e, rusts like hell.

The above post was brought to you via the American invented PC using the American invented internet, which is posted on an American site.

Srsly, look at the fortune 500 tech companies, the MAJORITY are American. Google, Cisco, Apple, Microsoft, etc dominate the world tech forum, to them, there is no equal.

Incorrect. Ignorant. Do research.
