Is this the END of Iran?
After Iran’s Revolutionary Guard took responsibility on Thursday for the shootdown of an American drone, claiming the drone had been brought down over the southern coast of its Hormozgan Province, the United States fired back saying the drone was flying in international waters over the Strait of Hormuz.
Navy Capt. Bill Urban, spokesman for U.S. Central Command, stated, “U.S. Central Command can confirm that a U.S. Navy Broad Area Maritime Surveillance ISR aircraft was shot down by an Iranian surface-to-air missile system while operating in international airspace. Iranian reports that the aircraft was over Iran are false.”
ABC News reported that after a top Iranian commander threatened that Iran was “ready for war.”
Iran made a very big mistake!

Revolutionary Guard Commander Major General Hossein Salami blustered, “The downing of the U.S. drone had an explicit, decisive and clear message that defenders of the Islamic Iran’s borders will show decisive and knockout reactions to aggression against this territory. Borders are our red line, and any enemy violating these borders will not go back.”
