Hmmm I'm wondering, does anyone at all believe that these drones were "downed" by folly? Or in Iran's case, by Iran?

Or.. Is it possible that we LET Iran have that drone?

If you want to plant something really nasty, say, a really nasty virus, you would need a vehicle if you want to bypass security measures. Mayhaps the drone, the one in iran, was downed so Iranians could get their hands on it, reverse engeneer it, and doing so, infect themselves with who knows what. Perhaps this drone going down is the "scapegoat" for the one that went down in Iran.

It just doesnt seem to add up that Iran was watching the drone before it ever got there, and it fell into Iran's "Trap"? Very odd, and I'm very curious. If that drone was so secret, you can bet your butt, we would have had a team in there to destroy it as soon as it fell.

Yehah!

Not really. Haven't watched a good western since I was a kid. The Good.. The Bad... The Ugly to be specific. Far as I know, there were no drone swapping there.


But think about it. Clinton sold secrets to china by way of a patsy. (ok, thats generalizing but still) Who's to say that Obama isnt doing the same... But for a diffrent tact.

I think that would be one hell of a introduction of something sinister. We know they're being cautious about Stuxnet now. What's to say we just didnt need another delivery system, one more stealthy. Irony is thick in this one, but I still feel that one be one hell of a smart tactic in a war/prewar cituation.

well if a foreign power has figured out away to get control of our drones that is reason to ground fleet. if they hack control of one with ordance what is to keep them from using them to attack outr alllies or enemies imagine a reaper firing its weapons into a russian embassy noye i said russian because i think only chinese woulsd be able to pull something like this off

Dude needs to pick up a copy of Battlefield 3 on the PC instead of that Atari like garbage he was playing. Best military game ever made. ~SheopleNation

I wonder how many hospitals or schools could be built instead of wasting thousands of dollars on these good for nothing drones!

I hate to sound unpatriotic, but it all seems like a bit of come-uppence for minding everyone else's business and not tending to our own.

It's kind of embarrassing.

The unmanned drone program in the U.S. actually goes back to at least 2007 when it was first uncovered by reporters in Texas that drones were being tested inside America in an exercise coordinated with local police. The claim that this was only for border control was quickly shattered when Miami-Dade county, FL became the first to commission micro-drones, which are specifically designed for effective use in the close quarters of a city environment.

Now that the precedent has been set -- with a supporting narrative to boot -- the full spectrum of the drone capability is set to be unleashed in America. Everything from spotting "adversarial intent" to facial recognition, soft biometrics, general threat assessments and even nano drones that mimic nature itself. And don't think that weaponization is far off.

We will be sold first on the effective use of surveillance to thwart armed conflict, like this one with the dangerous Sovereign Citizens, and other extremists to come no doubt. Then, perhaps we will see them used to deliver non-lethal weapons from above to quell protests (sorry, riots). Then, once we have become fully acclimated . . . .

My thoughts EXACTLY! Plant a virus or even spyware. I cant imagine that the US would be so stupid to let Iran down this thing and let them get their hands on it. And for Obama to "ask" for it back? No! If we wanted it back, we would go and TAKE it back.

That & the radar-absorbent skin, and I'm sure there are many more goodies on-board that we think.

You're pretty much dead-on though, as they are pretty much overly expensive RC toys (w/ small arsenals).

So this is getting interesting. One drone last week and one drone this week.

Seems as if our track record for flawless surveillance is taking a few hits.



My question though is why and what the hell is causing it. Twice in two weeks? Is it solar activity or is this genuine war right now? Maybe no one was expecting this. Bet the governments (as a whole yes) jaw hit the floor and said hello to the devil when they heard this.

Too bad we will NEVER actually know and all we can do is speculate. Damit

Aside from the range and carry capability I don't see what is so secret and hightech about these. One can buy an airhog that does the same thing over a shorter range these days. You can fly it by camera.

Planes crash and they would have had a worse case scenario for when they do. I m just surprised they don't have a inbuilt self destruct in these if it was so secret I would have assumed they would.

It is good that there were no injuries in this crash. Pilots around the world put their lives on the line every time they go up its a lot different when its just a machine dropping on the tarmac.

I have to agree with others. How long until we wake up to "news" that Iran has hacked one of these drones and done something to Israel.

Absolutely, Drones will be dropping tear gas and rubber bullets before long so in order to prevent any charges being filed against law enforcement personell. Hell, maybe even a laser taser. I can see it now, "Don't tase me drone!" No, I am not kidding at all. They already have the technology to do it. ~SheopleNation

That's not unpatriotic, you're correct. And yes, it is embarrassing. The question though is, was this intended to go down, or Did Red Chinese agents help Iran hack into it? Maybe the drone should have been flying over China instead of Iran. After all, we could wipe Iran off the planet in one day. Red China, that's another story.

Here is what I think happened. We easily could have had plastic explosives within the body of that Drone that could be activated remotely or by GPS in regards to it landing anywhere in Iran. Meaning, The GPS system would b e connected to a program that would ignite the Drone if it were to land in or close by to the certain Iranian pre-determined field of coordinates

We also could have taken it out with Airstrikes, though I am not sure how much our Aircrafts breach Iranian airspace. I do gotta pretty good idea, but I am not sure of, again the coordinates of where this drone landed in Iran Does anyone? Iran is a huge Country with deserts, forests and mountains. I would assume the drone was operating in an area with a higher population, but it very well could be far out in the desert or moutains near a military base or Nuclear plant. That makes the entire story even more wierd to me.

The final red flag as far as I am concerned is the other drone going down in the seychelles Islands which is exactly where Red China has just been granted to build a Naval base. It seems to me that someone wants us to believe that Red China is behind both hack jobs in regards to these fallin drones. I would also assume that these drones that we have given to them on a silver platter are dumbed down versions of the late 90's or early 2000's and compare nothing to what we truly have now. Who knows. Just my opinion, and that changes frequently in the World of Global Politics. Something isn't right about this story though. ~SheopleNation

Another drone? Oh geez.
I mean really, drones "crashing" into the hands of other nations that our government wants us to believe are our true enemies and that they are to be feared?
If there's fear in the air, it seems that their dropping like flies with a purpose to drop in the first place. I don't buy this whole "crash" criss-cross conspiracy and neither should anyone.

How about you Mr. FNG? Can you explain exactly what is going on then? Because if you don't wish to, Most of us with a brain here are gonna assume that you're attempting to debunk the truth. It's nothing personal, it's just that usually with these types of international scenarios, someone with under 10 posts comes on in and pretends that they have all the answers. And yes, it's usually under 10 posts and very rarely over 100. I am curious myself about what exactly you believe happened my friend? If you can, let us all know. ~SheopleNation

Fake news alert: a u.s. Drone crashed in disney land, landing on the "it's a small world" ride. Obama has asked for it back, but inside sources say goofy has made it his dog toy. Lol
