Wonder if this will be used as an excuse for the US to officially enter the Yemen war.

This is how we learn geography. By looking up all the countries we bomb.

No kidding!

Seems the other side is getting better at telling us to stay out of missile range.

I think they said it was an Iranian missile fired with the help of Iran.
So maybe Iran will be dealt a reprisal?

But not sure what our side was thinking. Flying a non-stealthy slow assed barely maneuverable drone over SAM defended airspace.

Dont worry if the Democrats lost another drone. There are 20 of them running for Potus, and hundreds more in Congress.

1. Testing capabilities of their defense
2. Counter intelligence, for example, what is the signature prior to firing the misile..
3. Willingness to defend airspace.
4. Prototype jammer that didn't work.

Could it be we are losing these on purpose because they are fitted with software to infiltrate or fitted with something to track its position and give us information?
