Am I missing it or is there no thread on the drone in Iran's possession?

    No GPS device we can trackon this and take out the location?

    For some reason, Sen. Lieberman is mentioned in the thread title, but yes, there is a thread.

    A quick search and I can't find it, so perhaps it got nuked. Here's the brief first thread about the drone.


    There was some discussion going on inside the second thread, so if that got nuked, it might be worth having a new one to talk about it.

    OK. Why not here? And why can't we surgically take out the damn location?

    Why don't these sort of drones carry enough blamo to blast the schnoogs out of themselves if there's a chance that they're going to fall into the wrong hands?

    Someone on some blog I can't find suggested it might have been a set-up targeting the goat people in Tehran.

    So... our drone violates the airspace of a country, they find it and the solution is to blast the hell out of them?

    How on earth did you get overlooked as a SecState candidate?

    If you're in that situation, you offer them the instruction manuals and go kneel before them.

    It's a glorified radio-controlled airplane. OH MY WHAT SECRETS THEY WILL LEARN!

    Starman, that is freakin' priceless! There should have been a recording in the drone that said, "are you threatening me?"
