Ahmadinejad: So we attacked a Drone, but didn't shot it down.
Khamenei: A Drone? Of course we didn't shot it down! Bumblebees are tiny.
Ahmadinejad: No, not a bee, a pilotless aircraft.
Khamenei: Our planes don't have pilots?
Ahmadinejad: No, our planes has pilots, theirs don't.
Khamenei: How do they fly?
Ahmadinejad: By remote control.
Khamenei: Using bees?
Ahmadinejad: Just stop okay?
Khamenei: Okay.

It's not that small of a target. I used to bullseye womprats from my T-16 back home.

You'd figure with the number of missiles they launched they'd at least hit something.

While my grandma isn't very maneuverable she does have arms. I wonder how many Iranians she could take out...

Obviously those Iranian pilots never played X-Wing vs. TIE Fighter before.

knbber2: the Iranians' training and some possible maneuvers probably combined to keep the Predator from getting shot down

They called on the wrong team.

A drone is the size of a Piper Cub and flies at 135mph. Ground attack aircraft or not, a guy with a slingshot tied to a kite could shoot one down if he got close enough.

I wouldn't be thumping my chest too hard over air supremacy if I were Iran.

crab66: This is kind of like trying to hit a fly with a sledgehammer. Not really surprised they missed.

Lead Pilot: We've been ordered to fire on that UAV.

Wingman: What, oh fark!!! No way dood! (turning down Foo Fighters' song playing in his cockpit)

Lead Pilot: It's our arse if we don't. FIRE!


Lead Pilot: We missed.

Wingman: Alah Ahkbar dood!!! (music volume turns back up)

Is this your idea of fun, Mav?

If they could have opened a window and thrown a rock that drone would have been toast.

Iran is simultaneously the greatest threat to America ever in history ever and also so technologically backwards that two marines and a retired army lawyer could take the country overnight.
