IRAN SHOOTS-DOWN DRONE -- ***NOT*** U.S.

IRAN SHOOTS-DOWN DRONE  -- ***NOT*** U.S.
9 Comments

An upgraded Iranian MIM-23B surface-to-air missile (SAM) battery (Shalamcheh SAM) of Iran Air Defense Force (IRIADF) in Mahshahr shot-down a drone . . . initially alleged to be a US Navy Drone.   The U.S. Military DENIES!

This is a developing story, check back for updates below . . .

 

UPDATE 6:12 AM EST --

The drone was fired from the location shown on the map below, into the Persian Gulf . . . 

 

 

UPDATE 6:17 AM EST --

Iranian Army confirm the downing of a foreign drone with a Mersad (Hawk) System.

Iranian official: Downed drone belongs to a foreign country, wreckage has been recovered, awaiting word of its origin.

 

UPDATE 6:48 AM EST --

Secretary of State Michael Pompeo to have Press Conference at 9:00 AM EST

Pentagon: “No reports of US drone being shot down,” defense official says

 

 UPDATE 11:34 AM EST --

Alleged reports of a U.S. drone being shot down are incorrect. If a UAS had gone down in the CENTCOM AOR it was not a DoD asset. All U.S. equipment has been accounted for.

    Folks the Communist Socialist Democratic Party with their Deep State Henchmen Intend to implement by Force, “Their ‘Will (Communism)’ on The United States of America.” This requires by Necessity the Disarming of All American Citizens, so that “None of Them (American Citizens) can Uphold The U.S. Constitution” via The Second Amendment (Right to Bear Arms) Created by Our Founding Forefathers to Stop with Arms, “Those (Communism by Democratic Party) whom would Destroy the U.S. Constitution, Bill of Rights, and Declaration of Independence.” “Currently the Company (CIA) Controls the Multi News Media via The Mocking Bird Operation,” which “Feeds a Constant Stream of Manufactured Propaganda.” A Fraudulent Mock Impeachment of President Trump is Underway, “Based Solely on a Pack of Lies, Innuendo, False (Non) Witnesses, Hidden Gestapo Tactics, and Never Ending Propaganda.” This Situation is Mounting Tensions Up to the Heavens as America Divides into 2 Warring Factions (Left & Right) Ready to Rip Our Country Apart in Civil Strife. “All Based on Falsehoods in Accordance with The Communist Manifesto Play Book (discovered in 1945) being Fostered by The Obama Administration to Overthrow The United States Federal Government (President Trump Administration).” Thus Our Country is on the Verge of Civil War… Hence, “There is a Man who is Possibly the Only Person who can Save America.” What is his name? “John Durham!” What does he do for a Living? He is a U.S. Attorney working under Attorney General Bill Barr (Former CIA & 322). His importance at this time in American History cannot be overstated. Why? “U.S. Attorney John Durham has been and is Currently Conducting a Criminal Investigation into the Coup D’etat underway in Congress with the Deep State,” as well, “All Other Treason, Insurrection, Sedition, and Tyranny against The United States of America.” Once U.S. Attorney Durham Exposes All of the Misdeeds Done unto the American Citizens and United States of America, “Hope, Faith, and Trust shall be Restored to All Citizenry.” The Washington DC Pimp Sease Pool of Total Criminal Corruption shall be Eliminated. “A Fair Honest Government Base upon Our U.S. Constitution, Bill of Rights, and Declaration of Independence shall once again Ensue with a Country in Unity.” called, “The United States of America.”

    Probably one of the more sensible theories on the drone and what it was likely intended to do........

    https://twitter.com/ELINTNews/status/1192902016361811969

    The drone was running below 300' and that is why the Hawk missile dipped down before impact........

    https://twitter.com/AuroraIntel/status/1192773981969027074

    This suggest poor Intel on the capabilities of the Hawk system.

    And my original question on if the drone stands.........

      There is a long list of drones that Iran has shot down or GPS spoofed.

      Iran has reverse engineered a couple of empire drones.

      Had to have been done with the intent to be shot down.

          Anything for a war, Joe. I would imagine it is the hope that Iran would not only shoot down the drone, but attack a US or US-backed asset as well to provide a non-Russian path to war. It could also be another case of GPS spoofing, in which case no country will admit they were fooled yet again.

          No, it's not *dumb*, it's actually quite simple. The US Deep State, Israel, NATO, EU and other globalist factions want a war with Iran and they will do anything to get it. Sacrificing a drone probably worth only a few million at most, is small potatoes for the powers-that-be.

    If in fact the Pentagon is correct in that it was not one of their drones, it will be very interesting to listen to pompousass' lecture at 9am.

    That a Hawk missile was used to shot the drone down indicates that the drone was large in size as the small quad rotors do not show on the radar of the Hawk missile system. That in itself would indicate the drone belonged to a state actor.

    Has it been verified to be a US drone? What was the location of the drone at the time it was fired upon? More GPS shenanigans?
