The Americans lost a drone in Iraq: the wreckage became the trophy of the Shiite militia


From Iraq, reports have come that the United States has lost its drone in Anbar province. According to the latest information, we are talking about the Boeing ScanEagle 2 UAV.


This drone is used by the American army in Iraq for both air reconnaissance and target designation.

The drone is equipped with an infrared or electro-optical rotating camera and allows you to transmit the coordinates of certain targets in the unit associated with it.

There are conflicting reports about the loss of UAVs by the Americans in Anbar province. Some sources indicate that the drone fell due to a technical malfunction:

He was not attacked from the ground.

Other sources claim that an American unmanned aerial vehicle was shot down by representatives of the Shiite militia of Iraq, Al-Hashd al-Shaabi, who are active in the province, especially after the US Air Force eliminated one of the Shiite police commanders Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis.


One report converges: the wreckage of the American Boeing ScanEagle 2 drone ended up in the territory controlled by Al-Hashd al-Shaabi. In this regard, it can be assumed that against the background of the well-known events in Iraq, UAV fragments by representatives of the Shiite police can be transferred to Iran.

    A great war is coming in the Middle East. Iran is forced to respond to the assassination of Suleimani, and Trump has already promised, in the event of an answer, to hit 52 targets in Iran.
    Now experts make various assumptions, but so far everyone is guessing at the coffee grounds. Americans make it clear that any answer will lead to escalation. This was already stated by US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo. And here it is clear that Washington is counting on just that. Iran simply cannot fail to respond.
    And the United States is already creating a coalition where Israel will definitely be, and the Gulf countries are transferring additional troops to the region. Apparently Trump, when he gave the order to kill Suleymani, and hoped that the airstrike would become a "Sarajevo shot" in the Big East.

      Yesterday, the United States already tried to establish "diplomacy" through the representative of Qatar with the proposal "to take revenge but so that the mattress would not hurt much", which means they are afraid of a full-scale response to their "prank". For 52 targets designated by Trump, the Iranians probably also found American targets, a blow to which will be painful.

            And what are American bases doing in a foreign land? Are the partisans themselves to blame for their deaths because they are fighting the soldiers of a foreign country who have come to their lands?

                      Israel attacked Hashd al-Shaabi bases
                      According to Arab media reports, the Israeli Air Force last night attacked the pro-Iranian police bases of Khashd al-Shaabi in Suvayah and Hiri, near the Bukamal border crossing on the border of Syria and Iraq.
                      As a result of the attack, several missile launchers were destroyed, which the terrorists intended to deliver to the border to the Golan Heights to carry out attacks against Israel.
                      As a result of the bombing, several militants were killed.
                      Warehouses with medium- and longer-range missiles from another pro-Iranian police, Kataib Hizbullah in Bukamal, were also blown up.
                      Earlier, CNN reported that the US military is talking about signs that Iran is preparing an attack using ballistic missiles. An attack is expected in the coming weeks.
                      Local media claim that Bukamal was attacked by two Israeli F-35 Adir fighter-bombers.

                      Yes, and he reminded you who is the boss in the Middle East, and everyone else came and went, and not several times.

                The Middle East was drowned in blood without any Americans.
                Well-fed Middle Eastern dictators fought with each other with pleasure, without any Americans. And this was especially promoted by the Soviet Union, which supplied thousands of weapons to Iraq, Egypt, Syria, Libya and other “communists” of the Middle East.

                The mistake was that by destroying dictatorial regimes, America was unable to create full-fledged democratic institutions in these countries.
                And the population of the Middle East itself does not yet believe in its own strengths and in its own right to build a free state.

As in the fable "You are to blame for what I want to eat," But do not the USA have many zones of vital interests on the planet? Recently, I often hear that the US military bases are threatened by locals who lack the audacity to live near these bases.

                  If you remember, it was the United States in every way that fanned the great war in the Middle East.
                  Probably the Iran-Iraq conflict did without them? The overthrow of Saddam is not their business? And who in every possible way Saddam got into Kuwait at 91m? The stupidity of Middle Eastern dictators - they love money very much and think like an ass, but this applies to both Turks and African leaders. Everything goes according to one scenario - they paid, forced to play to their own tune, then merged. So it was with ISIS and the Taliban. Americans have a planning horizon - decades !!!

              Iraq has a lot of oil, this is the only reason the United States is there. A funny desk called the UN Security Council is the Department of the State Department, where they sign the necessary papers for the Washington Reich Chancellery. However, sometimes they do without such formalities. Where are the white powder tubes that served as the basis for the attack on Iraq?

      A massive attack is being prepared on US bases in the region, like a strike on the oil fields of Saudi Arabia with a similar effect. They will try to kick the Americans out of Iraq at least. Trump promised in response to hit Iran (52 targets). But what will happen after all this? Here's the question.

      MOSCOW, Jan 5 - RIA News. The commander of the Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC) of Iran, Hossein Salami, said that Tehran’s response to the assassination of General Kassem Suleimani will put an end to the US presence in the region.
      "The martyrdom of General Kassem Suleimani will be followed by strategic retaliation, which will undoubtedly put an end to the American presence in the region," said Salami, quoted by Fars as saying. He added that "an act of retaliation will affect a vast territory."

      Mutno ....Russia is silent, as always ..There are the emisaries of Israel in the Kremlin sitting and crushing .. Well, well ..

      It is difficult to disagree with these. Therefore, I was surprised that Israel "kept silent", regarding Putin’s harsh assessment, of the Polish ambassador's address to Hitler about the suppression of Jews in Poland in 1938, calling it the appropriate word - "swine." Putin openly expressed his position based on archival sources. Putin clearly defended the Jews! But in the end, Putin called the “Polish fire” on himself, and official Israel is silent as a “fish on ice”. And only "mumbled" - a joint statement by the ambassadors of Poland and Israel in condemning the "heroization" of the UPA in Ukraine. Thus, Israel has shown its commitment to false correspondence by the West - the history of the Second World War.
      After all this - Putin should not go to Israel on - the "anniversary" of the Holocaust. yes hi

        In light of recent events, with a high degree of probability, he will no longer need to go there, due to the absence of an inviting party. The anniversary of the Holocaust may be celebrated elsewhere.

    The technology of creating cheap AFAR. Interesting. Who thinks on this topic?
    TsNPO Leninets demonstrated at MAKS-2019 a new multifunctional radar complex with a cascaded active phased waveguide-slot antenna array. This technology allows you to create cheap antennas with electron beam scanning. Details about the new product to the correspondent Mil.Press Military told the chief specialist of the enterprise Sergey Ivanov.

    The new radar called "Aris" is an active phased array antenna (AFAR) locator to inform pilots about dangerous meteorological formations. The product complemented the line of other radars developed by the association as part of the MARS initiative program.

            If the word "place" means a separate transmitter, a separate receiver and a separate antenna, then this is what the duplexer does. Those. allows you to receive and transmit on one antenna.

                Then this is not a theory of antenna-feeder systems and technical electrodynamics, but a kind of "romantik"

    conflicting messages arrive. Some sources indicate that the drone crashed due to a technical malfunction.

    I think that every such message will please the Iraqis, regardless of the reason! Well, and to help them fall, Allah himself ordered after everything that mattresses had arranged for them.

      Actually, Chechens and Persians are different civilizations. Sunni Chechens always call Shiite Persians rafidites and they have, to put it mildly, different views. Absolutely opposite poles.

    There is a UN Security Council resolution. Americans are absolutely legally in Iraq.

    Americans are absolutely legal :))))) thanks, I am amused. Explain this to those residents on whose land the bases were built, whose buildings were occupied by soldiers, and those whose sons died from amers.

    That's why drones, so that their loss is forgotten immediately after the news appeared in the tape ... Consumables of the modern war .. at least for a developed state, the loss is imperceptible and more than acceptable.

    In this regard, it can be assumed that against the background of the well-known events in Iraq, UAV fragments by representatives of the Shiite police can be transferred to Iran.


    If it is of interest, then it may come to us.

    It is strange to read this from a Muslim - the "infidels" kill Muslims, and you support them in this.

      Where is the source - you have to dig for a long time. But in fact, the States in this region are muddied and control oil and its supply. But Iran and Turkey 30 years ago and now are not the same thing. States are growing and want their piece of cake. Nations are growing in size strongly and financially and technologically. Hence the ambition.

    In Islam, there are Shiites and Sunnis, and they are the worst enemies among themselves. For many of them, even the prophet Issa (Jesus) is even closer to them ...

    Mutno ....Russia is silent, as always ..There are the emisaries of Israel in the Kremlin sitting and crushing .. Well, well ..

    It is difficult to disagree with these. Therefore, I was surprised that Israel "kept silent", regarding Putin’s harsh assessment, of the Polish ambassador's address to Hitler about the suppression of Jews in Poland in 1938, calling it the appropriate word - "swine." Putin openly expressed his position based on archival sources. Putin clearly defended the Jews! But in the end, Putin called the “Polish fire” on himself, and official Israel is silent as a “fish on ice”. And only "mumbled" - a joint statement by the ambassadors of Poland and Israel in condemning the "heroization" of the UPA in Ukraine. Thus, Israel has shown its commitment to false correspondence by the West - the history of the Second World War.
    After all this - Putin should not go to Israel on - the "anniversary" of the Holocaust. yes hi


    Are you really so naive? I'm about the Holocaust. Documents confirm only a tenth of 6 million Jews, they are such Jews. They themselves unleashed the WWII, made themselves victims. And the whole world is led to it. The world is ruled by a "chosen nation", the life of the gentiles is of little interest to them. Although, no, I'm interested ... In terms of planned destruction. Especially - the Slavs, as the most resisting. Notice I'm not anti-sim. To simple, normal Jews, I am quite sympathetic.

      At the Nuremberg trial, no matter who the Nazi criminals were asked about the extermination of Jews, it turned out that "he is not anti-Semite, and even once helped some kind of normal Jew."

        And in half of the European states that didn’t get to Nuremberg, they simply gathered Jews and organizedly gave them to the Germans. For example, the Scandinavians. And shockly worked for the Nazis.

    That's why he is a drone, so that people would not be endangered.
    Here, many are directly waiting for the Third World War because of Iran, as they were waiting for it because of Serbia, Iraq, etc.
    We swallow it, the USSR is not there, no one can restrain the United States and LNG-2 is a direct confirmation of this.

    Do you remember Nuremberg? Or maybe you should remember those who brought Hitler to power and unleashed WWII? And yes, for you, the "chosen god" the world around you is goyim. So where do the legs of nationalism and fascism grow from? I had good friends - the Jews. There are no complaints against such people. And to your elite, not even in Israel - there are many complaints. All the troubles are from rockefellers, Rothschilds, Abramovich, etc. The whole world is in ruin, just to fill your pockets ... Repent and it will become easier for you.
