Drone On In Iran ………. why not?

The Iranians say they have captured one of “our” drones. It’s a ScanEagle which is a slow-moving 5-foot-long craft with a wingspan of about 10 feet.

They say they have material evidence.

Commander Jason Salata, who is a spokesman for the U.S. Navy’s Bahrain-based 5th Fleet, has said that all U.S. drones in the region are “fully accounted for”.

Nice. But what does “fully accounted for” mean exactly?

Well here is an idea. The Commander has checked into the situation of the drones of the 5th Fleet and has discovered that “X” number of drones are on the ships of the 5th Fleet and “X” number of drones are flying around and ONE drone is in the possession of the Revolutionary Guards of Iran.

See. All drones are “fully accounted for” !

Now you see how that works?

Well Tubularsock could have saved Iran a great deal of trouble.

It is not necessary to shoot down a drone or anything so dramatic.

Next time just go to the Paris Air Show.

There you can pick up a plan and a purchase order. So simple.

Yeah. I guess it’s just not as much fun for you military types.

    dude ! RPG’s can be such amazing “equalizers” for those who don’t mind the karma :+) I wonder.how susceptible are those slow flying drones ??

      Thanks for taking the time to comment, dearing.

      1. Yes, the karma is a bitch for sure but that is only if you can’t compartmentalize.

      2. And what is it that “we” are trying to equalize anyway? Dick Cheney and Haliburton were behind setting up Iran with nuclear power in the first place.

      3. Susceptible enough to get snagged by the Iranians, dude.
