Meanwhile, there is some alarming news that just came through this morning, and I want to share that news with everyone here... For apparently according to the following report that comes from the Moon Of Alabama website, at www.moonofalabama.org, the US flew one of their massive "global hawk" ILLEGALLY over Iranian airspace last night and the Iranians promptly shot the damn thing down! Here is that report for everyone to see for themselves, and I do have my own thoughts and comments to follow:
Iran Shoots Down Strategic U.S. Drone - Is Ready For War - Puts "Maximum Pressure" On Trump
DUBAI (Reuters) - Iran’s elite Revolutionary Guards have shot down a U.S. “spy” drone in the southern province of Hormozgan, which is on the Gulf, the Guards’ news website Sepah News said on Thursday.
State news agency IRNA carried the same report, identifying the drone as an RQ-4 Global Hawk.
“It was shot down when it entered Iran’s airspace near the Kouhmobarak district in the south,” the Guards’ website added.
The American UAV took off from an US base in the south of the Persian Gulf at 00:14 am today morning and contrary to aviation laws, it shut off all of its introduction equipment and proceeded from the Strait of Hormuz to Chabahar with complete secrecy.
The unmanned aircraft while returning to the west of the region towards the Strait of Hormuz, violated the territorial integrity of the Islamic Republic of Iran, and start collecting information and spying.
At 4:55 am, when the aggressive UAV entered our country’s territory, it was targeted by the IRGC air force and was shot down.

Abas Aslani @AbasAslani - 7:29 UTC · 20 Jun 2019#Iran's #IRGC commander Salami: Shooting down the US drone had a clear & strong message i.e. we'll react strongly against any assault to the country. Borders are our red line. We are not after a war with any country, but we are ready for war. Message of today's incident was clear.
In January , Iran said it had shot down two conventional (nonstealth) drones, and in July, Iran showed Russian experts several US drones – including one that had been watching over the underground uranium enrichment facility at Fordo, near the holy city of Qom.
Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta told Fox News on Dec. 13 that the US will "absolutely" continue the drone campaign over Iran, looking for evidence of any nuclear weapons work. But the stakes are higher for such surveillance, now that Iran can apparently disrupt the work of US drones.
NTS Notes: As the article states: Iran is ready for war, and they are not kidding around...
The facts are that these "overflights" by US drones over Iranian territory are illegal and the Iranians have every right to shoot these damn things down under international law... The US has once again been caught on one of their spying missions over Iran and this shoot down shows that the Iranians absolutely are not going to put up with this action at all....
And yes, this shoot down does indeed show that the Iranians possess the technology to take care of anything that the US (and Israel) may attempt to fly over their territory.... This does not bode well for these criminals if they ever get into a real shooting war, for the Iranians will indeed blow their aircraft and drones out of the sky..
I also am beginning to find agreement with Moon of Alabama when he/she calls that horrendous criminal Jew butt kissing John Bolton the REAL US President.... I have seen over the last while about how the "deep state" has now firmly seized control over the Drumpf Administration, and criminals like that horrendous Jared Kushner and the psychotic John Bolton are actually the real men in charge.... And these two criminals are absolutely hell bent on getting America into a war against Iran by every means necessary....
It will be interesting to see what happens next..... I for one do not want to see a war against another innocent nation all for the criminal and psychotic state of Israel... But that entity's demons are now in firm control over our governments and they absolutely are blood thirsty and want to see American men and women fighting and dying for that psychotic state....
More to come
