I wonder how much of this story is true. Edit to say: not that Zero Hedge would have reported incorrectly but how much is the Pentagon lying about here.
Alternate headline: "We flew an armed predator drone into a warzone and Russia defended itself by knocking it into the sea." lol
Indeed. ZeroHedge is a shitrag liberal site. Don't care what they claim.
ZeroHedge is owned by ABC Media, which is owned by Disney Dildo Incorporated. The Kings of Cock-Riding-Rings.
Faggot 'writer' Tyler Turden squeals like a little Bitch that "the Su-27s dumped fuel on and flew in front of the MQ-9 in a reckless, environmentally unsound and unprofessional manner. This incident demonstrates a lack of competence in addition to being unsafe and unprofessional."
Who the fuck writes like that about the Military but a sniveling Ivy League fag, who has only ever typed on a keyboard and who lives in his Mommies 3rd home... with a maid. FFS.
Given the US can't land a fucking computer controlled F-35 on an air craft carrier, that Russian pilot was a master, he used his jet to nudge a POS drone into the ocean. That takes good old SKILL. FFS.
Lol man, your entire comment is wrong.
Wrong. A different "ABC Media" owns ZH, no affiliations to our ABC or Disney.
Lol dude, firstly, "Tyler Turden" didn't write that, our faggy military did. Secondly, why are you so emotional and upset?
He's Upset because he's an Infant...
He's upset because he took the fauci ouchie
You need to re-read the article. He wrote that as himself, the quote comes later.
Nope. I just read every version of the article. You’re wrong.
Look up "block quotation", or you're free to go read any article about the incident, they all have the same quote from the US European Command.
It is true however, that Tyler Durden was a radical Marxist faggot terrorist.
LOL. Tyler Durden doesn't even exist.
So is everyone here as well then since everyone here is cheering on a banking collapse and the only thing Tyler Durden orchestrated was a banking collapse.
yep, all I hear is people who hate capitalism
Is that true? Genuinely curious, I thought he was more of an anarchist than a Marxist. Wasn't the ending about wiping everyone's debts, destroying the system of usury keeping us all enslaved? If being against usury is Marxist, sign me up lol.
God you are a stupid commie fuck. You have been 100% brainwashed to support radical terrorist Marxism by Hollywood and you don't even realize it.
Tyler Durden is three different guys
If you actually read the article,
Happening for real!
negative Ghost Rider the pattern is full
That was the pentagons statement, the writer isn’t ‘talking like that’, he is reporting someone else’s statement.
You need to re-read the article. He wrote that as himself, the quote comes later.
BAD "facts" all through the article. It was in international waters, not a warzone. On and on.
Wow, people are being revealed here. :)
Race to the bottom of the the Black Sea?
I wonder if Russia is sending a submarine to salvage the wreckage right now.
Probably some value in getting a look at the electronics, etc.
You should try to be less of a faggot.
You need to try harder. You're either lying or stupid. We all know what the spy plane was doing there. Fly a spy plane with the transponder off until it reaches international waters and it deserves to get destroyed. Bullshit plausible deniability only works on those who don't have the capability to track your plane and down it.
No sir, you need to re-read the article. It even links to original report that is being quoted. Clearly the first paragraph of the linked article:
He didn’t write the press release eucom.mil
FUN FACT: The ABC Media Ltd that owns Zero Hedge is based out of Canada and NOT the American Broadcasting Company (ABC)...
take a big deep breath and chillax - save the dragon energy for the real enemy
100% this is what happened
We cannot trust a WORD from the pedophile ring leader admin
That seems more like it.
Yeah, why the fuck are we flying $6 million dollar drones to Russia?
We get nothing out of this whatsoever but risk of global war
6??? Try 34 million, WITHOUT EQUIPMENT
My friend, I believe under the 2a, we are both entitled to such arms. Let's start a crowd fund.
I’ll pledge & we’ll MAGA.
fuck we pay 34m for that piece of junk? no wonder nation is broke. that shitty drone shouldn’t cost anywhere near those amounts.
Actually to spy on Russian forces and pass this info to the Ukrainians.
The biggest asset the US is providing is the military intelligence. These drones are part of that.
If Russia find the balls to escalate, US satellites over Ukraine are next. That's one way they win, except the retaliation could be anything.
This is how psychos stay in power.
They slide the Overton Window off a cliff, and hope normies don't notice (they usually don't).
If they're talking they're lying
man Russians are pissed at us over proxy war. if we just give them reason theyll start shooting and not giving any fucks at this point. who is afraid of Biden? fucking nobody!
Luck has nothing to do with it. Russia picked a fight with Ukraine but turns out Ukraine can fight and Russia can't. Now we can pay Ukraine to kill our enemy. Perfect play!
Got damn you're delusional. Globohomos are getting free propaganda from you.
You've been psyop'd you dumb faggot.
Says the so-called "patriot" who cheers on the authoritarian dictator invading a smaller, weaker sovereign neighboring country. What an embarrassing hypocrite you are.
keep drinking the Kool-Aid
of course they are telling us this shit about Russia
people won't want to give the Ukes money if they are not going to win
they aren't going to win
Horseshit. They're winning now. That imbecile Putin thought it'd be over in a couple of weeks and that'd be it. Now this filthy cocksucker is intriguing in Moldova. He's doing the same shit is he did in Donbas- using his intelligence services to foment a revolution, arming, paying and training an opposition and then will use it as a pretext to intervene to "protect" ethnic Russians. It is the oldest move in the Russian playbook.
yet they have eggs on their shelves and gas is cheaper than in CA and no trouble heating their homes or cooking on NG LOL
Yeah. And their economy shrank 2.5% last year, year-over-year inflation is 12%; they have lost over 1 million of their most educated, tech-savvy young adults who fled Russia either because they opposed the war or they wished to avoid conscription. In the US, natural gas spot price is down more than 50% since last year and we have eggs too. Though our problem was largely the widespread outbreak of avian flu. So I have no idea what you are so happy about, Labia-boy.
I think that threat is overblown. I assume that Putin stole that $200 billion and built that 250,000 foot palace on the Black Sea because he wanted to enjoy it at some point. He uses a nuke- he'll be a pile of dust an hour later.
What are you talking about? Russia hasn't done jack shit this winter.
that's what the media is telling you
Russia is kicking their asses
Source: The US Government has lied about everything in my lifetime.
Hahahahahhahaha.... OK so you have nothing. Thanks for playing!!
does this sound like winning, dumb fuck?
The fight for Artyomovsk
Russian forces are in control of the eastern half of the city, have captured several villages in the region, and recently almost surrounded the city
The US has suggested relinquishing it in order to look for opportunities to attack elsewhere.
Doubts in Ukraine about readiness for new offensive
Kiev’s forces have been so “degraded” by a year of fighting against Russia that some Ukrainian officials doubt their ability to execute a planned spring offensive, the Washington Post has reported.
The conflict has taken many of the most seasoned Ukrainian troops, with the arrival of inexperienced draftees changing the profile of the country’s military, the US paper pointed out on Monday.
US and European officials have estimated that up 120,000 Ukrainian soldiers have been killed or wounded since the launch of Russia’s military operation last February, it added. Kiev keeps information abouts losses secret, even from its Western backers.
“You’re on the front line. They’re coming toward you, and there’s nothing to shoot with,” Kupol said, describing the situation.
“We don’t have the people or weapons,” an unnamed senior Ukrainian government official told the paper. He explained that casualties incurred by the side mounting an offensive are usually two or three times higher than on the defending side. “We can’t afford to lose that many people,” the official added.
As casualties mount, why there's a growing backlash against the methods used to conscript Ukrainian men for war
Ukraine’s general mobilization process has become shrouded in scandal as the authorities become increasingly desperate in their hunt for new recruits
Ukrainian authorities clearly have no intention of pausing enlistment because the situation remains critical at some sections of the front.
Hey Peanut Butter Falcon: How about a link to the source?
a few of their hypersonics later and no more US aircraft carriers floating
hypersonics have other ideas
Ooooooo..... muh hypersonics.
To be clear, Labia-boy: Russia's conventional military capability is a joke. They have proven that in Ukraine. Do you not remember the 42 mile long convoy that ran out of gas on the way to invade Kiev? The incompetence demonstrated has been jarring. A couple of A-10 Warthogs could have taken out that entire column. Do you not realize that after more than a year, Russia has been unable to establish air superiority over Ukraine? How can that be? The Russians have yet to integrate close air support into its ground combat operations. How, in this day and age can any modern military not have that capacity? It is literally astonishing.
Could they land a couple of punches? Yes, of course. But a conventional war against the US would be a slaughter.
i really don’t give a fuck
They’re throwing a temper tantrum so it’s probably true this time
Was thinking the same thing. My money's on some diversity bimbo crashed it because he/she/they/zit got scared and didn't know how to handle being buzzed by a Russian jet.
Of course the Pentagon couldn't just come out and say that, so they just blame Russia for scaring the poor zit
I agree. It's so absurd, everything, that this has to be a comedy....
we shouldn't be flying a drone there anyway, they should be on the border hunting illegals
Jokes on them, but lavish lifestyles lead to increasing levels of insanity because it defies human survival instincts. Any Upper Class is destined to fall apart, which is why social mobility has consistently outcompeted social stratification, it's the ambitious Middle Class rising up to replace the ever decaying Upper Class that allows for consistently higher quality leadership.
"Why are you crying Billy?"
"The russians broke my toy plane!!"
"Don't worry Billy, the tax payers will buy you a new one. They'll always buy you a new one. Actually, how about two?"
But then how would the elites get their "American Union"?
The model is to turn our entire continent into one feudalistic block, where the serfs are kept perpetually starving and poor, with no hope of ever having governmental representation again.
Oh, and the "overlords" will be systematically surveiling and culling the "useless eaters", behind the scenes.
Only fair. We blew up one of their pipelines.
By that logic we still owe them like 100 drones.
more like 1000
WE WUZ CZARS!
and what an environmental catastrophe that was but only crickets to be heard form the Pentagon and envirotwerps like Thunderberger
In related news, the USS Maddox and USS Turner Joy were just attacked by North Vietnamese torpedo boats in the Gulf of Tonkin.
justifiably so too since they were aiding and abetting the SV attack on NV territory
Except they weren't attacked, the gulf of Tonkin incident was a lie to justify direct military involvement.
They were on the Tuesday but not on the Thursday.
If you were an actual patriot you'd be questioning why the government is pouring billions of dollars into Ukraine while infrastructure crumbles in the US and illegals pour over the southern border daily. Also, going so far as to provide command and control support to the enemy justifies a Russian response as an enemy ally.
It's not a binary choice, shit stain. I was asking myself why after campaigning on immigration and repealing and replacing Obamacare- the only thing the RINOs did during the two years they held the WH and both houses of Congress was pass a $2 trillion tax bill that lavished money on the wealthy and their corporate patrons. Oh, and they announced infrastructure week 5 different time and never did anything.
How about a citation on that "command and control" comment? We provide intel- we don't control Ukrainian forces. Why would we? It'd be a provocation and Ukraine is already kicking their monkey asses
How would we react if they were flying drones and Migs close to our border off the coast in the Atlantic.
More like over Lake Superior
Sending weapons, having boots on the ground, giving billions and Intel are not provocation??
Please. Russian pilots flew combat against the US in Vietnam. They trained crews, supplied and even manned AAA as well. They provided weapons, munitions and money to North Vietnam. Putin was paying a bounty to Taliban fighters for killing American soldiers. This is how it works. We are just returning the favor. Fuck Russia and Putin simps.
Someone ban this liberal scumbag. That Taliban story is MSM fake news! You revealed yourself you fucker!
I reported the son of a bitch.
Suck it harder, boy. Vlad cannot wait to shoot his molten hot load down your throat.
Or a real man.
You blew your cover bringing up the bogus bounty story, faggot. Go back to reddit
Those were USSR pilots and you sir are a fucking imbecile.
It's not like the USA is the good guys here. We overthrew the Ukraine government in 2014 and after bombed the part of Ukraine that wasn't happy with that (donbas) for 8 years. On top of that we put labs all over Ukraine for the purpose of gain of function Research. Russia finally chimps out over all that and we start sending billions to Ukraine to fight a proxy war. And you're really gonna shill for the US zog government because they maybe don't give a fuck about international rules? Give me a break. How much are they paying you per post?
Mark Levin told this drone to get mad and demand we go to war with Putin the evil anti-jew man.
The Black Sea is land locked except for the Bosporus Strait and is surrounded by Russia, Ukraine, Romania, Bulgaria, Turkey, and Georgia. You will Notice that none of those countries are the U.S. We have no business even being in the area.
You sound like a liberal warmonger. To my knowledge the only one of those countries we have a military treaty with is Turkey yet you are willing to start WWIII because we are the good guys and can go where ever the fuck we please because, muh. Grow the fuck up, Russia is not our enemy.
You are a shill for the liberal warmongers. NATO should be dissolved as should the EU. They are both lesser versions of the USSR. But expecting any liberal to actually comprehend geopolitics is asking too much.
From your comments it's easy to deduce that you are definitely a Biden supporter.
Ukraine will soon be non-existent and the sooner the better.
Right....why are we flying armed drones in the Black Sea? The same area that's an active warzone?
For that matter why are we STILL occupying parts of Syria and Iraq? Why are we bombing Somalia?
errr.uhhh....I mean... RUSSIA BAD, DEMOOCRACY GUD
So we deliberately crashed a drone into a Russian jet? That’s how I read that now cause 🤡 🌎
Could easily of been a diversity hire piloting the drone.
Well, it is near Las Vegas. So…….
We’re flying spy planes supporting the Ukrainian military, im sure the Russians knocked it down
This drone has been moving very close to Sevastopol over the last three days. That usually means an attack on Crimea is imminent, directed by that drone.
No drone, no attack. Funny how that works….
If anything, the drone would be used as a provocation. It’s slow, easy to spot coming from a long ways away, and continuously broadcasts its location via its required satellite up/down link. If something was being used to coordinate a strike, it would be a B-2, or possibly a flight of F-35s using stealth to penetrate deep and identify targets in real time.
The Russians are now claiming that it was flying near Russian airspace with the transponder off, making it a threat to air navigation. Could be…
The Flightaware track only comes on well over the Black Sea, probably after it was intercepted.
That’s a legit enough cover story for their actions to prevent escalation. Drone most likely did that per SOP, and that could render it a hazard in any busy airspace. But in any other situation, an aircraft with a failed transponder would not justify a takedown. I don’t know enough critical details to render a final judgement on this particular incident. But surveillance aircraft flying off the coast in international airspace is a pretty standard thing. Russians, Chinese, and Americans all do it.
Lol the Su27 dumped fuel onto the drone effectively “pissing” on it
No doubt looking for cheap and easy ways to take them down.
As it stands, it looks like the drone was taken out without firing a single bullet or an expensive missile. They can also claim they "never fired on the drone."
I bet the amount of cope and seethe from the hypersonic missile attack on US officers is off the charts
I wish there was video of this
More like the tranny operating the drone had his period and crashed the drone into the ocean.
Yeah, it's some blue-haired diversity hire with a nose ring who can't even program the time on their microwave.
Awww, a toy got damaged . . .
And the so called leaders of The Big Gay Empire said in their characteristicly lispy voices.." it was unsafe, unprofessional, environmentally unsound, bigoted, racist, and just flat out poopy". Then the Russkies shouted from their jets "Shut up, faggots".
The visual of the story is a russian MiG with a guy sitting on the back with a fishing pole, casting with a big magnet to try to capture this drone. I’m sure the story explains it differently, but when I read the headline, that’s what I saw
OR,, 'Reckless' Drone Activity by Corrupt Senile Asshole Joe Biden caused a US drone crash because Senile Joe put his nose into something that is not his business. Hey, Joe Fucked Around & Found Out.....but he won't learn....AssHoe.
Give me a break, it wasn't reckless it was deliberate. We'd do the same thing if it was near our shores as well. Its unmanned, it costs millions and its gathering intelligence and they are at war.
LOL the Russians gave it a "golden shower" before swatting it. That's hilarious.
And the blue-haired drone pilot freaked out and crashed the drone. His boss then claimed it was the Su that crashed into the drone causing the drone to crash to save face. Airplanes are very fragile. if they both did collide at high speed, both would have suffered significant damages. just think about your typical fender bender then multiply by the mass and the speed of both airplanes. Yet from this "reporting" the Su seemed to have a laugh and flew away unscathed. Clown world.
The Migs repeatedly dumped fuel on the drone and flew in front of it. Then they bumbled into making contact with the drone propeller? I’m sure something from the Mig made contact with the drone prop, but not the fuselage.
Fuck around and find out. Stay away from there and this wouldn't happen.
didn't we shoot down a couple of harmless weather balloons from china??
What? When did that happen? I have no long-term memory
Russia comments on US drone crash in Black Sea
It's pretty funny that I have zero problem believing the Russian version on things, but substantial disbelief whenever it is the US government talking. My how things are changed
Two Russian Su-27s carried out an "unsafe and unprofessional" interception of an MQ-9 drone. One of the fighters dumped fuel several times and flew in front of a U.S. UAV "in a reckless and environmentally damaging manner."
Gawd - you can almost hear the lisp through the statement
Why does America have an ARMED DRONE in a war zone? Did Congress declare a war?
"We need a reason to DIRECTLY deal with the spread of oppressive Russia."
It’s almost like Russia isn’t happy with us dragging out their war and pushing in on their border! Who’d’ve seen this coming?
Good, fuck are communist drones. Shoot them down before they cause conflict within the border of Russia
It was a drone. That's why we operate drones. The pilot stood up from his desk, told someone "we need to launch a new drone", and then got some coffee. No need for hand wringing.
And notify the Fed to use it's "unique" ability to create a number out of thin air to cover the replacement cost.
Not the first time, either. Iran captured an intact RQ-170 over a decade ago and reverse engineered it.
Was this reaper armed? Will the next one carry air to air?
MQ-9s do not possess the ability to employ air-to-air missiles even if they could mount them, and the fighter mafia would never let that happen. This one was almost certainly carrying surveillance gear to soak up ELINT, radio communications, and cell phone transmissions. As well as direct surveillance of anything it could see with its targeting ball.
Wow it's almost like there's a war being fought. The biden administration are full of retards. They think they can send billions of dollars of arms to fight Russia but somehow claim neutrality and gasp when they reap the repercussions of that decision.
We have no business being there. What's it going to take to get our leaders to stop pocking their noses in where they don't belong?
Who has no business in that area?
Shouldn't even be there in the first place ya war mongering assholes
