Iranian Regime Celebrates Attack on US Drone – Promises Harsher Response in Future

Pamela Geller reminds us today: Ayn Rand said, “The spread of evil is the symptom of a vacuum. Whenever evil wins, it is only by default: by the moral failure of those who evade the fact that there can be no compromise on basic principles.”

The Iranian regime praised the IRGC fighter jets for the attack early this month on a US drone.
Fars News reported:

Commander of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps Major General Mohammad Ali Jafari praised the IRGC fighter jets which made a US aircraft leave Iranian airspace earlier this month, and stressed that similar responses will be given to any enemy aircraft violating the Iranian airspace.

“An enemy drone had entered the FIR (Flight Information Region) in the Persian Gulf, which is a no fly zone, deliberately or by mistake, and the Islamic Republic air defense systems and the IRGC fighter jets which were tasked with encountering the enemy aircraft acted upon their duty,” Jafari said, pointing to the Thursday reports that Iranian fighter jets have opened fire on a US drone over the Persian Gulf earlier this month.

“And if the incident happens ever again, a similar move will be made by Iran,” the IRGC top commander cautioned.

Pentagon claimed on Thursday that on November 1 Iranian warplanes fired at a US drone in international airspace but did not hit the aircraft.

Several Iranian officials have rejected the US allegations that the engagement had taken place in international airspace, saying the US drone had violated the Iranian airspace.

According to the timeline provided by the Pentagon, two Iranian SU-25 “Frogfoot” aircraft intercepted the American drone at about 4:50 a.m. EST (0850 GMT) as it conducted a routine, but classified, surveillance mission over Persian Gulf waters about 16 nautical miles off the Iranian coast.

The Iranian regime also promised a even harsher response in the future.

    A harsher response?
    Dear Iranian idiots:
    You missed? You attacked a 150 mph drone with no evasive capability? You attacked with 500+ mph. Soukoi fighters, and you still missed?
    DUDE! The Red Baron you aint.

    And we will come together with the Ultimate. And they won’t see it coming. My feelings are that even though threats have been coming like clock work from Iran. We will remember and we are on stand by for whatever they bring our way and Israel’s way.

    I believe that Iran has no clue who they are messing with. Keep pressuring and promising death to America and Israel and see what happens to you.

    Iran REGIME? All they have done is play a game of chicken. This has been going on for years now. In my opinion they should put up or shut up.

    I am getting tired of this, over and over the mindless threats and so are all Americans and particularly Israel. I see them doing something whether Obambi likes it or not.

    Years ago the Police drove dn the street in certain areas and x-rayed the houses asthey went a long.It was slome device that picked up the heat signature. Looking for drug labs.But the dopers attys a nd theaclu said the police needed prob cause and a warrant to do the detection.
    Son thatwas years ago and now we have the iranians continuing to be aholes. So why not detect the heatsignature on the various pipes and equipment that carry the water to cool these reactors. It is 2012 now and not 1999. and as the water flows-Browinan motin and all and presto a heat trace. then the lines could be ‘interdicted” so to speak and critical mass reached and boom, no nuclear.Or the harbor areas could be depth-charged and it could be a “Who-us?” moment and significant interruptions made…

  • I’m with Patty #5, right on- and Israel will wipe the floor with Iran

    Looks like Valerie Jarrett’s diplomatic reach-out is going great, huh

    Good going lib-Jews

  • Ummm two manned Migs fired on the unmanned drone and MISSED! I wouldnt be celebrating if I was them, Id be a bit concerned. They think they have the will of God behind them to wage war and win guess we will find out soon enough, only an issue of time till Israel hammers them

    If it was international air space ( sad that I cannot be sure of the truth from my own government) Immediately run a couple of f-18’s along the same route and see what happens.

    So whatever happened to the US drone that landed in Iran which Obama did nothing about? Did the Iranians steal enough state secrets?

  • burt

    They get away with it because the United States is without a President. Even Biden would be better, he doesn’t hate us as much!
