Built in 1975 buy a occupied Georgian worker. They are lucky it only took two of those Former soviet pieces of crap to catch a Single propeller powered MQ-1 that flies at a maximum speed of 135 Miles per hour.
Two Iranian Su-25 fighter jets against one drone. Lets hear it for the local heros! Highway to the Danger Zone, Right into the Danger Zone Highway to the Danger Zone, Right into the Danger...
I'm pretty sure I read that dwarves were piloting the drones. Luckily dwarves are not considered humans, so it's not a big deal.
Meanwhile back at the base...
I am approximately 50 miles from this incident working in Umm Qasr, Iraq protecting Iraqi oil so they can sell it too sell the world !!! God Bless America and God Bless Crazy fanatical Muslims
Where is Ronald Reagan when we need him, this kinda shit didn't work with him. Just ask those hostages
i hope we go to war with iran, because you get so much out of your tax dollars these days !!! it seems like a good cause, to free those poor dumb, people with no democracy in there lives, so we can feel better about our selfs !!!!
The US later found it was not one of their drones. In fact, it was Ants RC helicopter flying out of control.
I bet this was because of some sort of video that was made 8 months ago. We should arrest the director of such a film on totally unrelated charges and keep him detained for an indefinate amount of time!!! All the while CBS 60 Minutes can hold their end up and not let it out until a day before some important event!
ahh fuck it, gay marriage is the only thing that matters in this country so who cares. Drone schmone, lets see some man on man talk.

@bmqq316 I'll bring the Twisted Sister
@Toin Coss Riding each other's tails
@FLprodivider66 And then apologize for it.
@AnthonyLoman I read something recently that some of these drones are being piloted by guys based in Syracuse. Still amazes me that we're able to wage wars and drop bombs in the Middle East from a cubicle in upstate NY. USA! USA!
@AnthonyLoman lets not start hating on robots.
@BigMetsFan World War 3 will be fought by fat nerds eating cheetos.
