Lots of "What Ifs"
What if the US sent in a "Disposable" stripped down model to test Iranian airspace? What if the Iranians after going over the craft realized it was
nothing more than a stripped down Glorified RC probe [Which again made it over 150+ miles into their airspace]
We could play the What If game all day.
Just because it is disposable does not mean that there is not technology to be learned.
True, I understand from reading your many posts that you think the US military are a bunch of ignorant boobs when it comes to their Jobs [WAR
but did it ever occur to you that they knew full well that this scenario could happen? Wouldn't it be prudent to strip a model down for just such a
US has lots of airspace violations like when the Mexican helicopters flew into texas and nothing happened. The US flies drones into pakistan
and nothing happens.
Exactly, yet None are viewed as an act of war. But do it to Iran and all the WW-III cheerleaders and Iranian apologists come crawling out of the

So yes it is embarrassing to the USA; why was obama on his knees begging for it back?
I'm no Obama fan but he wasn't on his knees. That's your overzealous spin on things [As Usual]. What did you expect the administration to do or say?
YAWN of course they'll have asked, "Give us back our disposable toy". They had to acknowledge the incident. Not that getting it back really mattered
I'm sure we have more
Also it is a big achievement for a nation that does not have a large economy and has been taking on sanctions for a lot a time
