Iran to Sue U.S. over Spy Drone Violation


Iranian Foreign Minister Ali-Akbar Salehi said his country will take legal action against the United States at international courts over its "drone incursion" into the Islamic republic's airspace in the Persian Gulf.

On Tuesday, local reports said that the naval force of Iran's Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) downed an U.S. drone over the Persian Gulf in Iran's waters. Iran's state TV also released footage of the captured drone.

"The U.S. drone, which in the past days flew over the general ( international) zone of Persian Gulf gathering intelligence, was trapped in the air defense and controlling systems of IRGC and was captured as soon as it entered Iran's airspace," said the SepahNews affiliated to IRGC.

How very interesting

This certainly doesn't sound like a crazed group of rabid barbarians bent on destroying Israel at the cost of its own people.

I wish they (and others)

I wish they (and others) would simply use the Constitution's and hence Supreme Court's Original Jurisdiction Clause in cases of Law and Equity arising Between Citizens of Foreign States and the United States.

They'd have a case there and maybe could put the President in his effing place there and in other cases involving other plaintiffs. They'd be doing Liberty a favor here too.

I wonder if other countries ever read our constitution.

Those who make peaceful revolution impossible will make violent revolution, inevitable.

Legal action?

How frightening! Sounds just like the ruthless terrorist government we've been told all about by the media and politicians!
