Iran threatens to shoot down drones...
i guess they have a right to shoot it down since it is a military aircraft that is invading their airspace. but what would be our next move if they did? could this actually lead to another war and most certainley a draft?

That is what we are wanting them to do. We are testing their air defenses
On a side note did you watch the news this morning?
Iran claims an unidentified aircraft shot a missile in the area of one of their nuke facilities but it hit no mans land with a loud explosion.
Syria and Iran are doing an alliance of sorts...

I say let'em have at it. The sooner the world comes to an end the better.

can you blame them tho is what my question was. lets take Bush out of the equation and forget about why we attacked iraq for a second i dont want to open that argument. Iran must be scared ****less and they have to be preparing for war if drones continue to fly over iran. i mean lets face it those drones are used for one thing...... recon for possible targets.....

There was no missile, no drone.
The Iranian government has issued a statement that the incident was a fuel tank falling off a domestic Iranian flight.
On the brighter side, Iran is running in circles trying to save itself from the inevitable change of democracy, and freedom. Its people want it, its politicians demand it. But you know the old saying "you cant teach the Ayatollah new tricks"

No I don't blame them, but I do blame them for taking their stance on nukes, they are a very unstable nation that supports terrorism.

well any country would shoot down drones if they would spy their country, so why not the Iran?!

Do you want Iran to have nukes? Are Israel and her nukes a threat to us? Iran is a country run by clerics AKA religious fanatics similar to the nuts that flew planes into our buildings and killed 3,000 of our people. I'm all about leaving Iran alone for now and taking a wait and see attitude due to the huge cost of another war but lets not turn a blind eye to the threat.

Stop the moral equivalency, Iran is a state sponsor of terrorism, they boast about this proudly. Israel is a democracy. The only arabs in the middle east that enjoy true freedom...live in...Israel!!

America is working with Israel and is sending unmanned drones into Iran to test Irans air defenses. This is just to trick Iran into turning on its air defenses, so America would know where the air defenses are located and it would be easy for them during a war.
Iran is playing it smart, and not turning on its air defenses and radar points. That is only necessary when a war comes.

umm that doesnt make sense!!! it will be too late to turn on their systems after the US or any invading nation has already started to attack them. use common sense.
and its not the only way the US can locate them im sure that spy satellites, and spy planes will be able to see a radar tower and a few bunkers.

"It was clear to our air force that the entire intention here was to get us to turn on our radar," the official said.
That tactic, designed to contribute information to what the military calls an "enemy order of battle," was used by the U.S. military in the Korean and Vietnam wars, against the Soviets and the Chinese, and in both Iraq wars.
"By coaxing the Iranians to turn on their radar, we can learn all about their defense systems, including the frequencies they are operating on, the range of their radar and, of course, where their weaknesses lie," said Thomas Keaney, a retired U.S. Air Force colonel and executive director of the Foreign Policy Institute at Johns Hopkins University.
But it did not work. "The United States must have forgotten that they trained half our guys," the Iranian official said. After a briefing by their air force three weeks ago, Iran's national security officials ordered their forces not to turn on the radar or come into contact with the drones in any way.

And if your country goes to war with Iran you'd better get ready for the draft, or get Israel on the ground with you and get WWIII out of the way.
You won't have British forces, because like America the pro-longed war in Iraq and defence cut backs since the end of the cold war have left them over stretched already.
Attack Iraq or North Korea at your peril. Syria might be a softer target, but like Iran be prepared for the draft.

To get back on your original question..If we go to war with Iran the draft will have to be called up...So lets hope that doesn't happen
