Predator Bullshit Alert

Pentagon is out today with a total bullshit story:

Iran fired on an unarmed U.S. drone last week as it was hovering in international airspace, the Pentagon announced Thursday.

Spokesman George Little said the incident, which marks the first time the Iranians have fired on a U.S. drone, occurred Nov. 1 at 4:50 a.m. ET. He said the unarmed, unmanned drone was conducting “routine surveillance” over the Persian Gulf when it was “intercepted” by Iran. He said the MQ1 Predator drone, which was not hit, was not in Iranian airspace.

According to Little, two Iranian jets fired twice, missing on both attempts — the drone headed away from the Iranian coast, landing safely soon after at an undisclosed location. The Iranian jets pursued the drone for a short period before giving up.

Really? I don’t think so.

The Iranian jets–Soviet made SU-25s–flies at a max speed of 590 miles per hour. The MQ-1 Predator flies at a max speed of 135 miles per hour.

If the Iranians wanted to catch and shoot down the Predator they could have easily done so. Missed twice? My ass. This is the aviation equivalent of shooting a fat cow in a milk yard. The sucker ain’t moving that fast.

So, what was really going on? Looks to me like the Iranians decided to jerk our chain on the eve of the Presidential election. They wanted to see how Obama would react. And what did Obama do? NOTHING. Only now, King Coward wants to talk trash and act the tough guy. Iranians “missed” and then couldn’t catch our drone. That is total bullshit.

    John Batchelor this evening asked an aviation expert (didn’t catch the name) whether the Su-25s had fired a few shots “across the bow” or whether they had just missed. The expert said he thought they had missed; the Su-25s are ground-support aircraft without radar-controlled cannon, so the guns had to be aimed manually.

    Still, shouldn’t be too hard if you can come up from behind, I would think, but I’m no aviator. The expert said they had only a few rounds available in the Su-25s.

    The miss might account for the Iranian delay in boasting about the event, though.

    O/T – re Allen West

    The information in this article makes me sick in my very soul. I doubt that I’ll ever vote again. The corruption in this world is impossible to overcome.

    I just read that even the left wing UN poll observers were shocked that we have states that don’t require voter ID. I also heard that the Dems were busing in Somali’s who couldn’t speak English into Ohio to vote, and telling them to vote for Obama through translators who helped them fill out the ballot. Yup, sounds legit. I may sound crazy but I have a feeling voter fraud played a MAJOR factor in this election.

    LJ. Bullshit Alert

    US President Barack Obama aims to launch direct, fast-track nuclear talks with Tehran in December with a three month deadline for their conclusion…

  • TeakWoodKite

    So LJ, when we are done with collating target sets along the coast…

  • TeakWoodKite

    Wth a stall speed of 138 mph….the SU25′s would be closing fast. LOL
    Why does Obama do coward so well?

    This is the first time a Russian Sierra-2 class sub, believed to be based with Russia’s Northern Fleet and armed with SSN anti-submarine warfare missiles and torpedoes, has been detected near the U.S. coast, reports Bill Gertz of the Washington Free Beacon.
    This happened on the eve of the Elections. We are in deep shit.

    • TeakWoodKite

      You recall that missle firing off the coast of LA? not the first and not the last.

      • Woody

        Missile firing off California? Check. Russian U-boats off the East Coast? Why not? Japanese subs have been spotted close to shore on the West Coast for years. Anyone recall the article about a North Korean sub seen docked in Havana two days before the BP oil rig disaster? Coincidence? Who knows. One thing for damn sure, we are NOT alone. And now that Obie has “more flexibility,” should we expect Russian subs pulling into U.S. ports on a regular basis?

    • stodghie

      any bs story that russia is happy to have obama back is pure bs put out by the traitor media. what they do and say in private is not what is said in public.

  • JohnnyTwoDog

    Definitely bullshit. What is the reason?
    To make idiots think Iran is so inept that their top gun fighters can’t shoot down a drone?
    And by extension, how could such backward technology and training possibly build a nuke much less deliver one. Hah, those wacky Iranians. Nothing to worry about there.

    • HARP2

      No wonder if the Iranian Air Force couldn`t catch it.

      • binky354

        Harp, you’ve made my day! :)

  • Fred82

    SU-25s?

    Aren’t those primarily ground attack and close air support aircraft that were kind of like the Soviets’ answer to the A-10?

    • TeakWoodKite

      Hard to compare anything to a Warthog….

      • Fred82

        I agree,

        but we can’t knock the Russkies for trying now, can we?

    Are we going to stand for this shit? we need to band together and march on washington and DEMAND this guy be impeached and deposed.

      and I don’t believe for a second romney really lost. electronic voting flipped votes to the false one

        The more time goes on, the more stories come out about voter fraud. Apparently there was rampant fraud involving absentee ballots in Allen West’s district in south Florida. Unreal.

        • http://www.facebook.com/sirmrks Mark Dormann

          freaking unreal how much fraud there was this time around.

          Here is a brief summary of just how well Mitt Romney did in shifting voters toward him in 2012 versus what took place in 2008:

          Barack Obama netted FEWER Democrat votes in 2012 than were cast in 2008 by 3% points.

          Mitt Romney earned MORE Republican votes in 2012 than were cast in 2008 by 3% points.

          Barack Obama earned FEWER Black votes in 2012 than he did in 2008.

          Mitt Romney by the way, earned MORE Black votes in 2012 than were cast for the Republican in 2008.

          Mitt Romney earned MORE votes from both married men and married woman than were cast for Republicans in 2008, while also improving support among non-married men and woman by 2% from 2008 as well.

          Mitt Romney earned MORE votes among liberals, moderates, and conservatives than were cast for the Republican candidate in 2008 – in fact, this improvement was by a full 7% over 2008 – a very significant improvement.

          Mitt Romney earned more votes from Protestants, Catholics, and Jews than the Republican nominee received in 2008, including a 9-point improvement among Jewish voters alone.

          The two top issues according to voters were the economy and the budget. Mitt Romney earned A 38 POINT ADVANTAGE OVER BARACK OBAMA on the top two issues of the election – and yet Romney was somehow defeated.

          Lastly, regarding the following three personal trait issues – strong leader, shares my values, and has a vision for the future, Mitt Romney DOMINATED Barack Obama among 2012 voters by 45 points. And lost the election.

          ___________________________

          Here is the link to the data via the Washington Post. It is stunning, some might even say inconceivable, that a candidate improves in such categories as overall votes among Whites AND minorities, is ranked far ahead of their opponent in both the top two concerns among voters, as well as the three most important personal trait issues – and still loses the election.

          That is exactly what happened last night. Somehow, someway…that is what happened to Mitt Romney – and to all who supported him.

          See link below – and the dramatic shift in Republicans’ favor in 2012 vs 2008. A shift the resulted in a confounding loss that remains dubious at best…

            We elected a president and Obama said “Fuck you I aint leaving.” Well I say organize, storm the white house and say “get the fuck out” this is our country and we don’t believe in Soros machines.

              America elected a President and it was Barack Obama. Do you really want to storm the White House?

            Could you provide some links. Thanks.

            No, you are wrong. Fewer voted for Romney compared to McCain. See my new post.

          • mlnw

            Face the facts. ROMNEY LOST.

        Sorry I don’t know how to “link” this article, but is an excellent detailed piece about the electronic voting machines and voting fraud.
        No wonder Axlerod wasn’t concerned about having to shave his 40 year old mustache off if Obama lost.
        He KNEW Obama would win. Judges in cahoots by not allowing photo ID to vote. Republican poll workers physically tossed out of polling stations. New Black Panthers manning polling stations. ETC. ETC.

        Oh…it “linked” :)

    The Obama policy of lies and deception regarding foreign affairs remains intact, I see. This is such a transparent administration, just lie Obama promised! /s
