    This guy is so stupid like many others like him, first, the US claims to have shot down a drone after they ask the unmanned drone to leave, what a stupid thing to say, Next this ignorant can't see the fact that the US is in the golf close to Iran and not the other way round, What the US doing in Iran waters policing the world? who give them this right? sure China and Russia are more than capable to do that but they don't,

    US staging another war again. Its not surprising but US is not just staging conventional war but also economical. Now oil prices in asia will spike again hurting china and other asian countries while US enjoying oil from its ally saudi arabia. Sounds a dirty tactics from US.

    I THE PREACHER Month ago

    A Presumptuous Opinion: Why did the United States attack Vietnam (Afghanistan, Iraq, Sudan, Libya, Cuba, North Korea and Iran)? Rothschild is disguised and camouflaged as the USA and other countries. This thing with Iran is all about Rothschild getting control of the Banking System in the last few countries such as Afghanistan, Iraq, Sudan, Libya, Cuba, North Korea and Iran. It is not a coincidence that America is involved in the take over of the above countries. Rothschild has said “He who owns the banks rules the country.” I don’t know why any leader in their right mind would borrow money from Rothschild, when they all could just Print Money and make up Digital Money in their Banking Computer System. It wouldn’t change a thing. All Taxes go to Rothschild forwards a debt. After Rothschild gets control of all countries banking that’s when he will call for all his loans and take over the flat earth. And why don’t all the leaders tell Rothschild to get lost and get out of our countries. It is the fake Vietnam War all over again but with Iran. Why did the United States attack Vietnam? The claim by the Johnson White House was that an American ship was attacked by North Vietnamese patrol boats in the Gulf of Tonkin. This was later proven to be false, but at the time it was used as the pretext for American involvement in the conflict. Trump says he doesn’t want to make a fake War with Iran like the Vietnam War and the invasion War of Iraq. First Trump said Iran shot down an American drone. Now Trump is saying an American ship shot down an Iranian drone.Why did the United States attack Vietnam? The claim by the Johnson White House was that an American ship was attacked by North Vietnamese patrol boats in the Gulf of Tonkin. This was later proven to be false, but at the time it was used as the pretext for American involvement in the conflict.

    Iran wouldn't dare do things to start a war with the U.S. They know they would be destroyed and lose their rule if they did these things that they are blamed for now. Don't believe this propaganda for going to war with Iran. It's either the illuminati blowing up their own tankers, and flying a drone towards U.S. Navy ships to put blame on Iran or orders coming down from top officials to th U.S. military to do false flag incidents.

      Really? That's your comment.....
      US drone cost approximately $120 million. US defense budget is $721 billion dollars a year. Yes I said billion.
      That $120 million isn't sh*t 🤣🤣
      How much those sanctions costing Iran considering its oil exports dropping from 2.4 million bpd to under
      400,000 bpd courtesy of the US.
