War on Iran.

Spyplane

The RQ-170, allegedly shot down in Iran.

Maybe this is how warfare has become in our times… Tiny operations, small bombs, a little here, a little there – and a lot of cyberattacks and economical battles in the shadows.

And maybe… these enormous defense budgets for military equipment gradually will become a thing of the past.

From AP:

TEHRAN, Iran (AP) — Iran’s armed forces have shot down an unmanned U.S. spy plane that violated Iranian airspace along the country’s eastern border, the official IRNA news agency reported Sunday.

An unidentified military official quoted in the report warned of a strong and crushing response to any violations of the country’s airspace by American drone aircraft.

“An advanced RQ-170 unmanned American spy plane was shot down by Iran’s armed forces. It suffered minor damage and is now in possession of Iran’s armed forces,” IRNA quoted the official as saying.

    • Yep. The morality and justice part of these developments is another story.. it’s lawless behavior and force at will, but if it somehow avoids the 100k+ troop clashes and slaughter – it is a change at least.

      Side point; they say that in the ancient world the warfare was more for measuring strength – not necessarily for killing.
