    Houthis Say US Reaper Drone Shot Down, Release Video, Pics

    Houthis Say US Reaper Drone Shot Down, Release Video, Pics

    The US has not confirmed this yet, but I wouldn't be surprised if it were true.

    In recent days, Houthi rebels in Yemen have released video footage and photos of what they claim is an American MQ-9 Reaper being shot down and crashing in Yemen.

    The video and images have yet to be confirmed, but a report from CNN today that a Reaper had been shot down in the Red Sea by what US officials claim was likely an Iranian missile fired by Houthi rebels, raises new questions over how active the tense situation in the Persian Gulf has become.


    Speaking to reporters at the Pentagon today, acting Defense Secretary Patrick Shanahan said the US was planning to “make contingency plans should the situation deteriorate,” in the region.


    The increasingly tense standoff between the US and Iran turned violent Thursday, when two civilian oil tankers in the Gulf of Oman were damaged by explosions. The US said that limpet mines placed on the ships by Iran were to blame for the damage, and the USS Bainbridge and USS Mason guided missile destroyers were sent to assist the stricken Japanese oil tanker, Kokuka Courageous.

    If it is ours and we admit it, who's control do you think it was under? American or our pals the Saudis?

    Iranians getting edgy.
    People who enter the US without our permission are illegal aliens and illegal aliens should not be treated the same as people who entered the US legally

    If it was ours it was under our control. If we sold it to the Saudis it was likely under their control.
