30. Your conclusion may have been reached off of some simplistic reasoning.

First of all, Iran (and China) are known for ignoring internationally recoginzed boundries for international air and water.

Next, the Frogfoots could have easily been trying to shoot down the drones. This would not be an easy task for even the best Persian pilot.

The closing speed on a fighter jet, and the calibration of their weapons, are not designed for glorified remote control airplanes. They are meant to shoot aircraft moving at Mach 1.x.


And unless you have a source that is impartial, I really hope you don't automatically base your conclusions off of the word of a anti-women, anti-gay, relig-nut regime's media mouthpiece over our Democratically elected President's.
