........................................................................................When Irans leader, Ahmadinejad proclaims to the world that Israel should be wiped off the map, and that Iran is known to be near having nuclear weapons, I think having drones flying over Iran is a necessity and not a provacaion at all! I would be ashamed if we did not use every thing we had to boost our intelligence of such a madman leader.

I would be ashamed if we did not use every thing we had to boost our intelligence of such a madman leader. I guarantee Israel won't stand by in idle mode. They have been threatened and will do what is necessary to defend themselves. Our use of nuclear weapons to end WW2 was an honororable use of that power to stop Japans leaders from completing their plans. Its tiring to hear how we have been the only country to use nuclear weapons. Look how they ended the war quickly, and how we rebuilt Japan afterwards. Stan
The mind is flexible, not so history. You too have a wonderful day, freezing in Qingdao.Albert and Heron- I refuse to prolong endless arguments where in the end no one has their mind changed. Just stating what my view is, and will just accept others keeping their views. You guys have a fine day and so will I. . Stan
My thoughts also Scott.Options not exercised..
“With early knowledge that the aircraft had likely remained intact, the senior U.S. official also told Fox News that President Obama was presented with three separate options for retrieving or destroying the drone. The president ultimately decided not to proceed with any of the plans because it could have been seen as an act of war, the official told Fox News.”
“Among the options the U.S. considered were sending in a special-ops team to retrieve the drone; sending in a team to blow up the aircraft; and launching an airstrike to destroy it.”
Comparing the drone incident over Iran to the Soviet Union’s 1960 downing of the U-2 spy plane and pilot Gary Powers, the difference this time, is there are no family members that have to be notified, there’s no US prisoner in a foreign country. The U-2 downing shocked U.S. military boys, who dreamed the advanced bird flew invisible to be hit by a Russian missile, Iran says it used advanced electronic warfare measures to detect, hack and bring down a Sentinel drone. The only truth is the Iranians have the drone; the technology will spread like wild fire and still won’t make peace on earth.What ever the truth about the drone is, we will never know it in this life time.
Picture resolution and time over target.Why would you use a drone when a satilite could do the same, It's fishy, And the U-2 was a high flyer NOT invisable, As for Technology That drone Was not.
