Alright, first Iranian soldiers attacking ours, and now them shooting down our drones. At what point is someone going to admit they are waging war on us?
The Iranians are attacking from inside Iraq. That drone was over their airspace. We'd shoot it down too, if someone tried. But we should and will keep sending them.
That isn't the point.
This is the second time in almost two weeks they have fired upon us. How many times is it going to happen before people admit they are at war with us?
They are in Iraq, we are going to fight them there, perhaps even across their border. Do you think that their shooting down the drone which was in their airspace is an 'act of war' upon us?
No, I think them attacking us in Iraq is an act of war against us. The drone is just a continuation.
As I said, I think we should and will continue to use the drones in Iran, but in that sense we too are acknowledging the war. Consider it fighting back, not preemption, but the continuation would be on our part, not Iran's.
This isn't exactly funny. But kind of typical how conflicts get escalated into war. But it would be the first time a drone was involved in starting a war. "War of the Drones".
Anyhow, I will watch carefully how those events are reported. Another test for media to show if they can stay objective.
Is there really any question any more?
I think Media is ever-changing. I try to gather information from different sources, and the truth usually lies somewhere within the differences between them.
