This could be HUGE…

Iran shot down an American drone, apparently for no reason whatsoever.

It was said to be unprovoked.

President Trump, as one would imagine, was pretty ticked off.

His tweet:

Iran made a very big mistake!

From Fox News:

U.S. military officials returned fire — verbally — hours after Iran blasted a Navy high-altitude drone out of the sky over the Strait of Hormuz, with U.S. Central Command leaders on Thursday slamming the “unprovoked” strike and Tehran’s subsequent “false” justifications for it.

The downing of the drone, via surface-to-air missile, is only the most recent Iranian provocation in the region, coming on the heels of a disputed attack on a pair of oil tankers in the Gulf of Oman last week. U.S. officials say Iran was behind the tanker attacks, however, the Islamic Republic has not claimed responsibility and even suggested American involvement in the plot.

Trump considered his options with SecState Mike Pompeo and others.

#BREAKING on @OANN: Pres. Trump is currently meeting with Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, Acting Defense Secretary Patrick Shanahan, incoming Acting Defense Secretary Mark Esper, and National Security Advisor John Bolton regarding a response to Iran shooting down a U.S. drone.

BREAKING US – #Iran

• Trump Meeting Pompeo, Bolton & Shanahan now
• Bolton going to Israel (AFP)
• Military -NSC Meeting
• Congress briefing now
• US considering Military Responses (Arabiya)
• Putin warns against strike on Iran
• France making calls to deescalate

On Thursday night, it was reported that Trump ordered a strike on Iran before abruptly calling it off.

From Daily Wire:

President Donald Trump reportedly approved a military strike against Iran on Thursday, and, with planes in the air and ships in position, the strike was reportedly pulled back at the last minute.

Trump threatened Iran with complete annihiliation even before the U.S. drone was struck down.

He’s not kidding around.

Why did POTUS send such a tweet? Allow him to explain…

If Iran wants to fight, that will be the official end of Iran. Never threaten the United States again!

From BBC:

Iran’s foreign minister has said he does not believe a war will break out in the region amid concerns over rising tensions with the US.

US Air Force Reveals Successful Hypersonic Missile Test

This could put the US back in the driver’s seat as far as missile tech goes.

Published

Much like the global arms races that came before, the superpowers of the world are now looking to add a terrifying new doomsday machine to their arsenals in 2022:  Hypersonic missiles.

The missiles, which could be loaded with nuclear or traditional munitions, fly several times faster than the speed of sound and are said to be unstoppable by current defense technologies.  (The US has played coy with this claim, however, suggesting that our nation is well-defended against them).

Russia and China already possess such weapons.  North Korea keeps insisting that they do too, but the claim is dubious.

The United States, who previously admitted that they were a bit behind in developing these projectiles, made a major announcement on the subject this week.

UPI reports a B-52H Stratofortress aircraft successfully released a AGM-1831 Air-launched Rapid Response Weapon (ARRW) over the weekend that achieved speeds five times greater than the speed of sound.

The test was conducted somewhere off the coast of Southern California, it said.

“This was a major accomplishment by the ARRW team for the weapons enterprise and our Air Force,” Brig. Gen. Heath Collins, Air Force program executive officer for weapons, said in a statement.

“The team’s tenacity, expertise and commitment were key in overcoming the past year’s challenges to get us to the recent success.”

The news comes just months after China secretly test launched a hypersonic missile that circumnavigated the globe before hitting its target.
