Crimea Downs US Drone, Can War be Far Off ?

This is how wars start. When Bill Clinton attacked Kosovo creating a new independent state, when “they” created South Sudan “they” opened the double doors. The west gave Crimea the roadmap for claiming independence. It is substantially easier to breakaway and join another country.

One thing is for sure, we are going to elect more dems and repubs who will give us the same war mongering ways. The world asks, why do you keep electing these freaks.

From Yahoo News:

Moscow (AFP) – A United States surveillance drone has been intercepted above the Ukranian region of Crimea, a Russian state arms and technology group said Friday.

“The drone was flying at about 4,000 metres (12,000 feet) and was virtually invisible from the ground. It was possible to break the link with US operators with complex radio-electronic” technology, said Rostec in a statement.

The drone fell “almost intact into the hands of self-defence forces” added Rostec, which said it had manufactured the equipment used to down the aircraft, but did not specify who was operating it.

“Judging by its identification number, UAV MQ-5B belonged to the 66th American Reconnaissance Brigade, based in Bavaria,” Rostec said on its website, which also carried a picture of what it said was the captured drone.

The photograph appeared to show an apparently armed drone in flight, rather than debris.

The Crimean port of Sevastopol is home to Russia’s Black Sea Fleet, which is believed to be equipped with detection equipment.
