Iran fired on U.S. drone over Gulf: Pentagon

Stark reminder of tensions

Reuters: Iranian warplanes fired at an unarmed U.S. drone in international airspace last week but did not hit the aircraft, the Pentagon said on Thursday, disclosing details of an unprecedented incident that triggered a formal warning to Tehran through diplomatic channels. The November 1 intercept was the first time Tehran had fired at an unmanned American aircraft, in a stark reminder of how tensions between the United States and Iran could escalate quickly into violence. Pentagon spokesman George Little said the aircraft fired multiple rounds at the Predator drone and followed it for at least several miles as it moved farther away from Iranian airspace >>>

For Arash123 information

by Shirzadegan on

I was there as well. I am suprised you didn't see the 8, 9 years old girls were pregnant by Arab soldiers. I am suprised you never heard of Iranian women were being raped by Arab soldiers. I am surprised you never knew our cities were bombed by aircraft called "Mig" which was exclusively made by Soviet Union. I am more surprised you never heard of Mac Farland who were in Tehran in those days. I am very surprised you were UNinformed from many event that happened in those days such as Regan administration were selling weapons to ruling mullahs under table. Regan administration sent the money they received from mullahs to Nicaragoa's dissents. The link I provided for you is on record. It was NOT written by me. Hope you understand that part. It is well documented, written by historians. I am NOT historian and I didn't write any parrt of it. I just put the link for you to educate you about what happened. You probably didn't know that whole Arab world supported the bastards who invaded Iran. Please ask any Iranians, they will tell you. It has nothing to do with me. Now, please tell me what part of my comment was false claim? Thanks.

Those who don't know what happened are the ones who live in caves and have no access to Internet and TV. Like one  who says Drones don't kill innocent civilians

While you were watching the war on TV, I was there on the ground. I know first hand what happened.  Mixing some facts with your fictions is not going to help you sell your false claims.  I refer you to that same poem

Soviet Union weapons used by Arabs against Iranians could find in this link. The aircrafts called MIG. Migs were bombing over our heads by Arabs. You can read it in this link.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Soviet_support_for_Iraq_during_the_Iran%E2%80%93Iraq_war

you can read U.S were selling arms to ruling mullahs in Iran under the table  in order the American hostage to be relieased in Lebanon in this link. The earned money from selling weapons to Iran was sent to Nicaragoa for rebels to fight with "left" government of Sundenists.  

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Iran%E2%80%93Contra_affair

After liberation of Khoramshahr, over 2000 of Arab soldiers were executed by Iranian forces in retaliation of many Iranian women being raped by Arab soldiers during their invasion.  This link proofs that.

Now, the above are welll documented and welll established facts. Any question, please don't hesitate to ask.

Your spelling errors are nothing compared to errors in your judgment. If it is coming from the bottom of your hear, then you have heart problem. Check to a hospital ASAP.

"Arash123" Questions

by Shirzadegan on

First of all, let me thank you for correcting my mispellings. Thanks. I grow up in Iran and I went school in Iran. My degree from univesity also have "Islamic Republic of Iran" logo (not shahanshahi) , therefore, sometimes writing in English is challenging for me.

   Anyway, majority of Iranians especially those who lived in the cities close to the border who witnessed brutality of Arab invasion don't like Arabs. We were under Arabs bombs for 8 years. The Arabs killed over 1 million of our brothers and sisters. I don't know if you live in those era in Iran, but we were getting bombs on our heads from left and right by Arabs in those days. The aircraft carriers were Mig 13 which was exclusively manufactured by Soviet Union, NOT Americans. On the strike contrast, our army were defending our country by U.S made weapons which were purchased by shah during 70's. Shah's legacy of Nationalism among army personnels saved Iran from the hands of Arabs. His slogan of "cho Iran nabashad, tan e man mabad" among army personnels saved Iran. Somtiems, We were buying U.S parts for our weapons in the black market with higher price, but most of the weapons as it was said In the Iran-contral affair it was bought from U.S under the talbe.  Oliver North testimony (1987) revealed that U.S were selling parts and weaponds for many years to Iran in order to get   American hostages released in Lebanon. The hostages such as Terry Anderson. All those years we were getting weapons from U.S under the table. The money from Iran were sent to the rebels in Nicarago to fight Sundenists. It was big scandals in America in those days.

 In some cases, invader Arabs raped some Iranian women in the front of her husband's eyes. Maziar58, who is one of the commentors on this site, can tell you stories about the rape. He is from Khozestan. All the Arab world supported the bastards. Kuwait was helping them financially. Egypt and Palestinians were sending troops to assist them in their invasion. King Hossaine from Jordan, close friend of Saddam Hossaine, was helping them militarily and financially.

   There are so many links on you tube that you can found out about the help of whole arab world against Iranians in those years. you're welcome to do your research. Suddan and some other countries such as Afghanistan under Talibans were devil. I don't know how much you know about Talibans and their crimes committed against humanity especially women. Suddan is state of terrorism. Those people who were runing the country similar to ruling mullahs in Iran had no respect for human lives.

At the end, I have to say, our people were happy during shah days. Shah was peaceful, educated gentleman who had a peaceful relationship with the whole world including state of Israel.  No country dare to threat or invade Iran as long as our shah was alive. They invaded after our shah's death in 1980. Under shah's smart leadership, Iranians were well respected aroung the world. I was a little kid but I do remember those golden era. I do remember how highly Iranians were respected in London' airport.. Everybody was happy. Unlike these days that Iranian women, with scarf on heads,  look like a maids or house keepers, during shah days, Iranian women were competing with the latest fashion models in Europe and America.  We had a beautiful and peaceful country. We never had any fight with any country including state of Israel. We treated each country (even communist countries such as Russia) with respect and dignity. They were doing the same to Iranian people.  After shah left the country in Jan 1979, our people never tasted happiness again. The blood shed and oppression in our country continues till remains of our late shah returns to Iran. The remains should be buried in Iran with state funeral and big respect from our nation. God bless his soul.

 "Here we go again let's hear the dumb "Persians" get pissed about Arabian gulf." kingreza 3

The Persians who defend their national interests are called Patriatic Persians. Therefore, the correct version of above statement is:

"Here we go again let's hear the Patriatic "Persians" get pissed about Arabian gulf"

You wrote; I am concerned about any lives of human beings beyond the borders, beyond races, beyond greeds and religion affliation. I am concerned about lives of Iranians as much as I am concerned about lives of Afghanis, Rusians, Indians, Pakistani, Israeli......etc

I assume by "greeds", you mean creeds and by "affliation" you mean affiliation and by "Afghanis" you mean Afghans and by "Rusians" you mean Russians.

Then why there isn't a word of that in any of your write ups? I didn't see anything other than your love for Pahlavi Family and support for Israel and hate for Arabs.

Are Arabs exempt from your love? What about killings in Sudan, Myanmar, Afghanistan, Iraq, Pakistan and rest of the world? Are they not human beings?  Why isn't there any objection toward 60 years Israeli genocide?  Palestinians are  exempt from your love too?  What about hundreds of thousands Iranians killed in eight years war by Mustard gas and bombs provided by west? Did you ever objected to that? Held any demonstration?

It is loud and clear that your anti IRI criticisms are not humanitarian. They are pro Pahlavi and indirect pro Israel criticisms.  I smell rat in your write ups.

I feel the man didn't

by Kingreza3 on

I feel the man didn't emphasize the Arabian gulf enough. He should have repeated at least few times more. Here we go again let's hear the dumb "Persians" get pissed about Arabian gulf.
Let's not forget Israel is also a theocracy in secular cloths but a friendly one to the united states. But the last election showed that the white monopoly of media, thus the public opinion is over. So white man enjoy your last few days of power as the USA will be run by mexicans and blacks in few days. because the utube has more audience than CNN FOX and ABC combined and any moron can post/reach out on it.
BiBi you lost, so either resign and have another leader get a fresh start by getting on immigrant band wagon or get Israel a step closer to a real democracy where the religion and state are truly separate.
The best response from IRI would be "iran would investigate the claim but Americans have to be more specific, as the location indicated in the report is unclear".
And to those Mr. Obvious out there again I do realize that the same story applies to IRI.

"Arash123" misinterpretation

by Shirzadegan on

"You are concerned about Israeli lives not Iranians." Arash123

No, my dear, I am concerned about any lives of human beings beyond the borders, beyond races, beyond greeds and religion affliation. I am concerned about lives of Iranians as much as I am concerned about lives of Afghanis, Rusians, Indians, Pakistani, Israeli......etc. Of course, my immediate concern is about the Islamic monsters who want to wipe out a nation from the face of the map. Those bastards and their filthy paid supporters who want to eliminate million innocent people from the face of the map. I am also concerned about those idiots who were brainwashed by a bunch of the uneducated rag heads. I am concerned about those Islamic criminals who massacred over 20,000 of our brothers and sisters in summer of 1988. I am concerned about those Islamic thugs who brutally tortured, killed and imprisoned our brothers and sister during their uprising for their human rights in june 2009. I am concerned about those Islamic thugs who stabbed our brothers and sisters during peaceful demonstration in june 2009. I am concerned about those bastards who were clubbing our defenseless sisters on streets of Tehran during their uprising for their rights. Videos are available. please let me know if you want to watch the videos that our sisters were being clubbed to death by Islamic forces. Did I make myself clear ? Please let me know what part is UNclear so I explain it more.

Much appreciated,

Siavash

Just to let you know that IRI by its discriminatory laws against the women , the minorities and in general by not giving a damn about the human rights is digging its own grave.. With friends like VF who needs BiBI ?

I. however, wholeheartedly do feel  for the Innocent people inside Iran that are being subjected to both VF and BiBi .

MKO? the Saudis have long been fearful of iran taking  Bahrain and Their Eastern side , WHERE ALL THE OIL is located. Iranian government has been for 30 years has been doing the right thing. WE ALL KNOW WHO KILLED Neda, We all KNOW how the CIA works, and how the corporate media CNN,BBC, work to brainwash the masses. This Site is infected with brainwashed people and agents trying to Sway people's opinion. I HAVE MADE MY MIND based on 2 years of reasearch, And I HAVE come to the conclusion that the worse Human right violator in history of mankind is USA, Britian, and Saudi Arabia. IRANIAN all walks of life, give your support to the Iranian government more than EVER NOW. Watch this video and see why America is waging a war against Iran, HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH nuclear bombs, Human rights, NOTHING, OPEN YOUR EYES AND MIND NOW.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TEC9uM1h4i0

I care about name as much as I care the lives. That is the reason I fight with Islamic criminals who want to kill million innocent people in Israel. Those are lives, in case you were not aware of it.

BTW,

I flag your comment on the other site because your used abusive language toward this writer. That may teach you to learn how to make a civil conversation with people, especially those who take their time and try to educate you. You must appreciate them,not use abusive language toward them.

Hope you get enlightened and see the civilized world some day.

ARABIAN Gulf! This shows US intentions!

by payam s on

The pentagon spokesman goes out of his way to refer to the persian gulf as the arabian gulf more than once. I'm no nationalist, but it's clear what they are trying to do; to jeapordize iran's territorial integrity and its claim over its territorial waters. Iranian military responded correctly in light of the previous US attempts at spying via drones. Obviously the Iranians were not trying to take it down since drones lack any maneuverability to evade such an attempt. It was merely a warning and a chase-off. Any country would do the same.
