Iran's Flying Saucer Downed U.S. Drone, Engineer Claims


www.wired.com

Late last month, Iran put on display what it insisted was a captured American stealth drone. At the time, Tehran claimed it brought down the RQ-170 with a sophisticated electronic attack. Nonsense, says one Iranian engineer who claims to have inside knowledge of the drone-nab. The Islamic Republic used force fields and flying saucers to subdue and capture the unmanned aircraft.

Wonder why we are waiting...when we did not with the Libyans...

Could it because, the Iranians are having far more advanced technology than purely nuclear...

In both the Iraq and Libyan war, the US was able to effectively disable all enemy air power and thus in the end win the ground war as well.

So is the US testing the Iranian air defenses and see what technology they have and if they have standard third world technology than what are they waiting for....

We're probably waiting because both China and Russia have said that an attack on Iran is an act of war against both countries. You would start a world war over this nonsense and it's not worth it.

It would be more helpful if people would actually link to the real article, not just a second hand commentary on the article.

As wired themselves say, the actual news comes from the keshe foundation, the site where Mr Keshe puts forward his insights on the world.

Specifically, the original source is where Mr Keshe made a posting to his own message forum.


P.S. He also sells free energy generators.
He wont supply them till the end of this year, but he'll take your money now. Get in quick!

Either way, not much of a breaking news article. Wired is known for covering stories full of rhetoric to make things a laughing stock. The only reason they published this article is because they know that for every american who reads it, they will think Iran is some kind of joke. Which is what they want.

Wired has western propaganda all over it concerning military/political articles.

From what I understand, most drones currently deployed don't really have much of active defenses or countermeasures. Also keep in mind in their current roles that the only cameras are likely look-down (recon) and look-ahead (piloting). It wouldn't really take much to sneak up on one, provided you remain outside of the visual envelope during the intercept.

Hypothetically, you could fly a small cargo plane with a back door that opens, get really close, and sling a guy out the back with straps and a parachute on, and capture the drone that way. (This would also make for cool movie stunt footage, if anyone cares to test the idea.) Since it's flying on a pre-determined route and can't see certain areas around it, there wont be much chance of a drone taking any intentional evasive manuevers. Get close, keep it out of turbulence from your aircraft, keep out of its sight, and it's a sitting duck there to pluck.

A flying saucer is a fanciful story, but jamming or something else more mundane still seems a lot more likely.
