Iranians fired on an American drone flying over international waters in the Persian Gulf three times in a bold and unprecedented move, according to the Pentagon.

U.S. defense officials said they believe the shots fired were not warning shots, but that they were looking to shoot the drone down. The U.S. later warned the Iranians through diplomatic channels that they will continue drone flights.

“The United States has communicated to the Iranians that we will continue to conduct surveillance flights over international waters over the Arabian Gulf consistent with longstanding practice and our commitment to the security of the region,” said Pentagon spokesman George Little, Reuters reported.

News of the attack by Iranians comes following reports that the U.S. and Iran may engage in direct talks following the U.S. elections. Both governments denied those report.

Last year, a CIA drone reportedly crashed in Iran, sparking a huge international incident between the countries.

    Don’t sweat it America. Obama will scream and pout about Jews living Israel. Problem solved. Odds are that Obama has already shared military secrets with Iran and this is just theater.

    How do you explain such an attack that defies reason unlesss you are the ‘mouse that roared’? You do not by using reason. Such an attack is only explainable if you understand the psychotic nature of the Iranian regime (and I do not mince words here) Iran thinks that Obama has no intention of acting aggressively toward it, or is gambling on what they think is his reluctance to engage. How can the Mullahs be so sure, however, when Obama has sent killer drones into Pakistan? It can’t, and that refelects the suicidal nature of the regime and why it cannot be allowed to get nuclear weapons. LIke an addicted gambler, Iran cannot resist endangering iteself for what it perceives as a possibility of looking strong. what this shows is that Iran is in fact not confident at all in its deterrent ability which means that they know that their military effectiveness is not much. Indeed, perhaps Iran IS the mouse that roared – but a severely psychotic mouse. What all this translates to Netanyahu is ATTACK ATTACK ATTACK. Never mind Hillary Clinton and company. She also seeks the destruction of the Jewish State.

      HC Hilton and German Elite Croonies are setting up the III & IV scene of “3rd rib Bear” of world wars….Questions will be answered as to what is behind this new World Order of things. You would have to ask our Creator ( boreh/bo=come reh=see) why, and He has told us ALL in advance in detail. This does not mean His Word will ever be accrpted. In ancient days it was rejected, and His prophets warnings ignored. Again His-story will repeat itself. Without documentation one would think that this could not really happen again? Our Father Yaho, has answered prayers and has provided you a walk thru HIS-STORY. “come out of HER now my children; go into your rooms and hide for a little longer while I judge the twisted serpent leviathan.
