That's a lot of money for a drone!! Still, nice to see taxpayers money being spent wisely........

Looks like Iran is cranking up the war drums from their end. They must be really excited about a few cruise missiles dropping on their electricity generating facilities, and fresh water supplies.

Crazy is as crazy does.

They claim it was over Iran territory. I wish we could actually believe our own administration. Unfortunately, I can't believe either.

Kinda like Trump with the Saudis, eh? Buying NYC real estate buys a lotta love! Or maybe he's just jealous because they can murder journalists who write things they don't like and go unpunished?

You mean Iranís own money that was mostly in overseas banks?

Iran was in compliance with the deal until Trump exited the deal.

International air space. Nothing illegal about flying a drone in international airspace. There is everything illegal about shooting it down.

Spying on another country is the instigation.

You mean the 150 billion of their own money being returned to them? That money?

You're obviously a believer in Trump's "tell a lie often enough Ö and you'll have all the useful idiots believing it" methods.

Have to say, so far it does appear to be working like a charm for him. No shortage of useful idiots I guess.

There looks like a need to have future drones with some defensive missile equipment capability !!!

That will drive the price up !!!
Might save some money if it keeps them from being knocked out of the sky !!!
