That's actually really insulting and incredibly arrogant. I'm not a fan of the Iranian regime in any way shape or form, but frankly that's
ridiculous. If you're American, you're also not helping the increasing "Anti-American vibe" that sadly seems to be taking hole either. Don't
forget the Nazi's formed the roots of your space program and their technology and ideas helped you be the only nation on Earth that has used nuclear
weapons in active service and on civilian populations :-o
But I digress, I love the US and it's people in general so I don't want to upset anyone that doesn't deserve it, but maybe... Try not to think so
you're damn superior all the time? It's kind of irritating....
I have spoken to Iranian undergraduates through my own educational studies, strangely they're the same as us apart from a few cultural differences,
have the same dreams and aspirations, like iPhones, watch TV and their Facebook page pics are the same as ours (apart from maybe a few differences in
clothing and half the time they look more civilised).. What do you
expect? People in shawls scratching at the dust in a windy desert? Sort it
out.. Bit sad though that for the first few minutes of conversation you can sometimes see the look of weariness on their faces as they wonder if
you're going to suddenly attack them for being 'a funny color' or muslim, or whatever...
The clever US Government/Military/Contractors were in a spot of bother a while back because after recovering some insurgent's laptops they discovered
footage from UAV live video recorded to the hard drives... Oh my!! How did they get this? Simples... They used a readily available MPEG-2 DVB-S card,
Skyscanner software (apparantly, I thought it would be done a different way personally, I might be wrong or Skyscanner might be disinfo), dish and
Bob's your uncle (I'm English, look it up).
But but.... How??
Well when the system was devised originally for relaying video from Predator drones and such like, the equipment for receiving and decoding (I say
decoding, the data stream's weren't encrypted
) the data streams from the satellite relaying the drone's video were very expensive and
relatively hard to come by.
Want one now?
One of many, it's used to receive your normal satellite TV.
Unencrypted drone video intercepted by militants
Yes... They were so stupid and arrogant they had been relaying live drone feeds completely unencrypted using a cheap standard commercial transmission
method. If you belong to certain groups/forums/mailing lists into satellite feeds and stuff, quite a few people have come across drone feeds!
Sorry, Iran is underdeveloped? Well, even if they are like everyone else in the world apart from the US (which is probably the case in your book) then
at least they more than likely have the brains
instead to make up for it.
Damn it you made me stick for Iran, well hell I'm not. I'm sticking up for Iranian people
who are just as or more civilised and intelligent
as anyone else. You'll find a lot of people around the world have a lot to say for Americans due to your government's foreign policy, how would you
like to be personally insulted due to this?
