    Iran Fired On U.S. Drone In International Airspace: Pentagon

    WASHINGTON -- An Iranian attack aircraft fired at least twice at an unarmed U.S. drone conducting routine surveillance in international airspace over the Persian Gulf, the Pentagon said Thursday. The aircraft missed and the drone returned to base unharmed.

    Little said the drone was about 16 miles off the Iranian coast when the Russian-made SU-25 Frogfoot warplane intercepted it and opened fire. He said it was the first time an unmanned U.S. aircraft was shot at in international airspace over the Gulf.
    "Our aircraft was never in Iranian air space. It was always flying in international air space," Little told Pentagon reporters. "The United States has communicated to the Iranians that we will continue to conduct surveillance flights over international waters over the Arabian Gulf, consistent with longstanding practice and our commitment to the security of the region."

    Another incident with Iran involving live fire and drones.
    Hopefully this is the last of few incidents that occurs.

    They also heard the Iranians saying... "testing, testing... Obama you have any balls? Testing... testing..."

    "Hopefully this is the last of few incidents that occurs"? LOL... these folks have only begun... they know they've got numbnuts in the WH... now it's time to have some fun.
    You have to understand... these people don't care... they're fanatical; they hate the US as much as they hate the Jews.

    Here's a primer on dealing with terrorists from someone who advised a couple presidents during the Iranian Hostage Crisis and predicted to the minute when they would be released. How is it possible? He knows these people... that's how.
