Iran fired at unarmed US drone, Pentagon says

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 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.

Little said the U.S. government has protested to the Iranians. Asked about how the U.S. could respond, he said: "We have a wide range of options from diplomatic to military."

Little stressed that the drone was flying 16 nautical miles off the coast of Kuwait in international waters, and never entered the 12-mile limit that would constitute Iranian territory.

The Pentagon announced the incident as the administration imposed a new round of financial sanctions against Iranian officials and entities. They marked the first sanctions since President Obama's re-election Tuesday. According to the Treasury Department, the move was "related to the Iranian government's human rights abuses, its support of terrorism and Iran's Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps."

The drone encounter comes after a U.S. drone crashed in Iran late last year. Iran claimed to have shot it down, but U.S. officials said it merely malfunctioned and crashed.

Little said he thinks the Nov. 1 encounter is the first time an unmanned drone was shot at in international waters over the Gulf. He said the U.S. will continue to run surveillance missions in the region.

I'm sure the boy-n-chief has called and apologized and told them he will have it slowed down so they can hit it next time.

Probably just work-place violence again.......

I expect there will many pot shots taken at us over the next few years with this weak leadership. All Barry will do is make excuses for them from the 18th green.

I fear it's going to be a lot more than four years.

I commented on another thread on how our enemies will strike us soon. Looks like the table is being set. When countries become financially bankrupt they tend to go to war. Get ready, it's coming.

Hopefully in 4 years, we'll get a President with a set that won't tolerate our country being picked on and will fight back.

I love your optimism but if we couldn't dethone the Kenyan then we are toast from now on.

Their desire to be hard core is directly proportional to our troops having their back. Obama won 7 out of 10 Jewish votes in 2012. Some of these have dual US/Israeli citizenship.

If American Jews refuse to support Israel with their votes, why should American troops suppport Isrtael with their lives?

Not sure whether Hillary fits that description or not.

The other Clinton will be the next President.

If the country couldn't remove Obozo, I don't see anyone voting another Republican in.

C'mon guys. We are not outnumbered by libs. We are outnumbered by Lib VOTERS.

We are still the majority, but sadly, those on welfare seem to be more likely to get off their sorry azzes and VOTE.
