I think maybe they are nervous over our elections now that things are looking a bit more like it will be a ROMNEY/RYAN administration next year!
They want to test the waters while we still have ZERO in office.
Maybe they want to even create a crisis...who knows!
Detect, Identify, Intercept and Destroy. It looks like Israels response time was good and their reactions indicate they can handle it.
Was this by chance the same Drone that the Obama admin. “accidently” let the Iranians have???
I guess we are going to have to rely on Israel to be the leader of the free world, at least until Jan. 13, if not longer.
Thank you Israel, hang tough.
Iran probably thought by now they’d be fighting a proxy war (via no fly zone) with the US in Syria, with real Russian’s manning Assads anti aircraft installations. Instead they are fighting a war now with the Turks; and, Qatar/Saudi arms suppliers with deep pockets. Iran is losing face, maybe this drone mission was envisioned as some small propaganda victory. You have to wonder if Palestinians are now showing up to fight Assad -Iran by proxy?
Actually, it was 30 minites not 15, second: it was in the air long enough to acquire ELINT signatures of the Dimona nuclear reactors air defenses and the American X-band radar station linked to the US X-band station in Turkey, third: it was not ordered shot down until the political comcideration was bucked up to Bebe. Time enough for the Hizballah to have detonated a nuke gained from Iran.
The likely purpose of the drone flight was to monitor and analyze Israeli response and tactics (sigint, elint).
That must have been one hell of a string.........
