Iran will respond to US shooting down drone: Phares


>>>THE “BOXER” TOOK ACTION AGAINST AN IRANIAN DRONE WHICH HAD CLOSED INTO A VERY, VERY NEAR DISTANCE, APPROXIMATELY 1,000 YARDS, IGNORING MULTIPLE CALLS TO STAND DOWN, AND WAS THREATENING THE SAFETY OF THE SHIP AND THE SHIP’S CREW. THE DRONE WAS IMMEDIATELY DESTROYED.>>TENSIONS ESCALATING WITH IRAN. PRESIDENT TRUMP MAKING A MAJOR ANNOUNCEMENT IN WHAT HE CALLS WAS A DEFENSIVE ACTION AND NOW WE KNOW THAT THE U.S. USED AN ELECTRONIC JAMMING DEVICE TO TAKE DOWN THAT DRONE, AT LEAST ACCORDING TO THE LATEST REPORTS FROM THE PENTAGON. FOX NEWS NATIONAL SECURITY AND FOREIGN POLICY ANALYST WALID PHARES JOINS US NOW. THIS SHOULD COME AS NO SURPRISE TO ANYONE, BUT WHERE DO WE GO FROM HERE?>>FIRST OF ALL, ON OUR SHOW AND YOUR SHOW, WE PROJECTED THAT AFTER THE FIRST DRONE ATTACK BY THE IRANIANS THAT THERE WOULD BE OTHER DRONES RELATED INCIDENTS AND HERE WE HAVE ONE TODAY. BUT THIS TIME, IT’S NOT HAPPENING IN NEUTRAL AIR SPACE OR INSIDE IRAN. IT’S HAPPENING AT 200 FEET OR MAYBE MORE FROM A U.S. SHIP. THIS MEANS IRANIANS ARE TRYING TO PUSH A LITTLE BIT MORE THE RED LINE TOWARDS US, WHICH PROMPTED AS THE PRESIDENT SAID THIS IMMEDIATE REACTION OF SELF-DEFENSE BY THE BATTLESHIP. KRISTINA: IF WE ARE GOING TO BE SPECIFIC HERE, I WANTED TO BRING IN SAUDI ARABIA. YOU JUST MENTIONED THAT. THE FACT THAT THE UNITED STATES NOT ONLY ARE THEY SHOOTING DOWN A DRONE 1,000 YARDS JUST FROM THE SHIP BUT THEN YOU ALSO HAVE THE UNITED STATES ALLUDING TO INCREASING THEIR MILITARY PRESENCE AND WORKING WITH SAUDI ARABIA, SO IF YOU HAVE THAT HOSTILITY PLUS WORKING WITH SAUDI ARABIA, COULDN’T THAT MEAN SOMETHING’S REALLY BREWING AND COMING SOON?>>YES, ACTUALLY, THE UNITED STATES IS WORKING WITH WHAT THEY CALL THE ARAB COALITION, INCLUDING SAUDI ARABIA, THE UAE, BAHRAIN, OTHER COUNTRIES. IT’S ALREADY A FACT. THE QUESTION NOW, WHAT WOULD THE IRANIANS DO NEXT, I THINK YOU ARE INTERESTED IN THAT PROJECTION. KRISTINA: RIGHT.>>IT SEEMS TO ME THE IRANIANS ARE GOING TO REPLY TO THIS INCIDENT. I DON’T KNOW HOW OR WHERE, NOBODY EVEN KNOWS, EVEN OUR INTELLIGENCE, TOO FRESH, BUT THEY ARE NOW IN A DEADLOCK SITUATION WHERE THEY WILL HAVE TO RESPOND BECAUSE OF THE PUBLIC OPINION.>>THIS IS A WEIRD NEW ERA OF WARFARE WHERE YOU HAVE AN UNMANNED VEHICLE, UNMANNED DRONES, SURVEILLANCE VEHICLES, BEING SHOT DOWN BY ONE SIDE OR THE OTHER. USUALLY THERE ARE PEOPLE INVOLVED AND THERE’S AN IMMEDIATE RESPONSE. WE DON’T QUITE KNOW WHAT TO DO AROUND OUR EQUIPMENT BEING DESTROYED, THEN DESTROYING THEIR EQUIPMENT.>>HOW IS, WALID, I’M SURPRISED TO HEAR YOU SAY YOU THINK IT’S UP TO WHAT IRAN DOES NEXT. I WOULD THINK IT WOULD BE UP TO WHAT AMERICA DOES NEXT. WASN’T THIS IN EFFECT ANOTHER ATTACK ON AN AMERICAN SHIP? IT ALMOST SEEMS AS IF THEY ARE BAITING US FOR A WAR. SHOULD WE GIVE IT TO THEM?>>NO. WE SHOULD NOT. WE SHOULD CONTINUE TO DO WHAT WE’RE DOING RIGHT NOW BUT ONE LITTLE DETAIL IS VERY IMPORTANT, CAUGHT MY ATTENTION. HOW DID WE GET RID OF THAT DRONE? NOT WITH AN ANTI-MISSILE MISSILE. JAMMING. THIS IS TELLING ME WE ARE IN AN ERA WHERE THERE IS NO CHANCE COMPARING OUR TECHNOLOGY WITH JAMMING WITH BRINGING DOWN A DRONE. NOW, THE IRANIANS WILL TRY DIFFERENT THINGS BUT THEY, TOO, DON’T WANT A FULL-FLEDGED CONFRONTATION. THEY WOULD LOSE IT. AT THE SAME TIME, THEY WANT TO INTIMIDATE US, THEY WANT TO INTIMIDATE OUR ALLIES IN THE GULF, AND THEY WANT TO WAIT AS LONG AS POSSIBLE. MAYBE A CHANGE IN POLITICS IN THE UNITED STATES WOULD BE THE ONLY CHANCE.>>WALID, THIS IS GARY KALTBAUM. IT FEELS LIKE FOR LACK OF A BETTER WORD, WE ARE KIND OF PLAYING FOOTSIE WITH THEM WITH THESE LITTLE THINGS. I KNOW THEY’RE BIG THINGS, BUT BACK AND FORTH. AT WHAT POINT DO WE JUMP OVER THE NET HERE IN THAT THEY’RE DOING SOME PRETTY PROVOCATIVE STUFF AND HOW LONG TO THE POINT WHERE WE JUST SAY WE’RE NOT GOING TO TAKE IT ANYMORE AND WE HAVE TO TAKE SOME OFFENSE?>>NOT THE TECHNOLOGICAL WARFARE THAT WE’RE DOING RIGHT NOW TOY TO TOY THAT WE SEE. WE COULD SEE MANY OF THOSE INCIDENTS. WE SHOULD NOT JUMP AND BE SHOCKED. IF THE IRANIANS OR MILITIAS, NOT JUST IN THE GULF, IN SYRIA AND IRAQ, THAT’S WHERE THEY ARE GATHERING, WILL HARM US, HARM OUR SOLDIERS, IT’S A DIFFERENT BALL GAME AT THIS POINT IN TIME.>>ALTHOUGH, WE ARE ALSO TAKING PROVOCATIVE ACTION IN THE SENSE THAT WE ARE WITH MILITARY SHIPS OFF THEIR BORDERS. THIS IS NOT A ONE-SIDED SET OF PROVOCATIONS, IS IT?>>IT’S A PRESSURE WE ARE APPLYING. NOBODY IS SHY ABOUT IT IN WASHINGTON. THE PRESIDENT, THE ADMINISTRATION HAVE SAID WE ARE PUTTING ALL THIS PRESSURE FOR THE IRANIANS TO START WITHDRAWAL FROM IRAQ AND SYRIA. OR COME TO THE TABLE OF NEGOTIATION. I AGREE IT’S NOT A ONE-SIDED ISSUE.>>DO WE CONTINUE TO ALLOW THEM TO SHIP OIL OUT? DO WE ACTUALLY TAKE MORE AGGRESSIVE MEASURES? WHAT DO WE DO FROM THIS POINT IN TERMS OF, YOU KNOW, ATTACKING THEM ECONOMICALLY?>>THE PRESSURE IS WORKING. WE ARE GOING NOTCH AFTER NOTCH. WE DON’T NEED TO BE, YOU KNOW, SUDDEN ON THEM. BUT AT THE SAME TIME, THE IRANIANS HAVE TO CHOOSE, TABLE OF NEGOTIATIONS OR ARE THEY GOING TO DO THESE PINBRICK ATTACKS AGAINSTJONATHAN’S POINT>>IS THE PRESSURE WORKING? IF THE PRESSURE’S WORKING, IT SEEMS THE IRANIANS, EVEN TO YOUR POINT, KEEP UPPING THE ANTE, ESCALATING. I DON’T SEE HOW YOU CAN MAKE THE CASE, THE PRESSURE IS WORKING. IS IT?>>IT DEPENDS ON WHAT’S GOING TO HAPPEN NOT OUTSIDE IRAN BUT INSIDE IRAN. THE MOMENT YOU WILL SEE DEMONSTRATIONS, THE MOMENT YOU WILL SEE ORDER BREAKING DOWN INSIDE IRAN, THEN WE ARE IN BUSINESS.

  1. The iranian professor says UAE will cease to exist in a few days. Well your place cease to exist in just a minute if you start a war.

  2. they will deny everything – 6 tankers attacked and damaged, 1 tanker almost seized, 1 US drone shot down and now 1 tanker already seized – how many more can the world take from this until they response to this threat –

  3. The hand rubbing intensifies for Israel and Saudis. The puppet masters want to get this started before Epstein brings the whole thing down.

  4. If you havent figured out US mainstream media is public relations for the CIA and special interest groups who love war profits. Cant trust anything you see on none of these stations…

  5. Bombing Iran will change nothing unless America send ground troops and topple the regime in Iran which is probably double the cost of Iraq war. Bombing will only have civilian casualties and gather people behind the regime. If we want a regime change we need to expand the sanctions to Mullahs in power and their families and associates, and let the people up-rise. It takes time but will work.

  6. The Iranian Regime is waiting a War, Where America doesn't want a War and Is doing everything to avoid a War.
    You can already see how the Iranian Regime is acting.

  7. if iran wants they will be a test country for our millitary to test out our new weapons.
    Trump will turn iran into an airport for America if the hurt any Americans or take any human life
    they better be careful HIS WORDS

  8. why should we believe anything coming from this racist criminal mouth at the white house. send all trump supporters to war with iran, so US can be cleaned by racism hahaha

  9. I want to know if Obama and Kerry and Feinstein or any other government official are still advising the Iranians

  10. The Deep state wants war and the President is trying to keep us from war. These people want war to cover all their evil things they have done to our country…

  11. Fake news on top of fake news. The Iranian drone was not hit, so everything Murica has said since has been false

  12. Build the dam wall. Invasion, national emergency etc heat of the moment. Just airhead in fantasy land again

  13. Iran is PUSHING at America and WESTERN NATIONS when they RESPOND SHOT DOWN THERE MISSILES DRONES FIGHTER AIR CRAFT AND SWIFT BOATS. FOR SO MANY YEARS BOTH REPUBLICAN AND DEMOCRAT PRESIDENTS DID NOTHING ALLOWED IRAN TO HAVE ITS WAY. President Trump must OFFENSIVELY ENGAGE IRAN NO MORE RESTRAINT FULL FRONTAL ATTACK.

  14. The US were totally correct to shoot down the Iranian drone!
    If the Iranian regime persists , then there'll be a lot more than just Iranian drones that get destroyed!
    Their entire Military will get destroyed, then Iran invaded to relieve the Iranian people from their unnecessary suffering!

  15. Fox News for and by moronic people. War with Iran would mean ww3. These spastic presenters/commentators should be signed up for the Front-Lines.

  16. We are at war with Iran now no doubt it's when the cities around the world get nuked is when we break out the popcorn

  17. Don't care about the Middle East. Bring all your troops home to be with their families and BUILD THE WALL and start the Mass Deportations of the millions of illegals.

  18. If the US can down a drone through electronic means, they can do the same to a jet or other aircraft.

  19. They keep sending them and US will keep shooting them down – good – no need for 'boots on ground'. Drones are expensive and they are tight for funds – plus it is a 'defeat' for the Iranian government that is already struggling. Eventually a 'big punch' will be justified… and it will not be a "war" it will be a 'surgical strike' but one that hurts. Unless the US puts troops on ground hurt – Iran is 'annoying' and can be contained.

  20. The regime in iran would sacrifice half of their people to stay in power? Lets oblige them. Without your people, your nation is nothing.

  21. No matter the consequences, They need to be carpet bombed by everything we have. They will never be satisfied to coexist. Their religion and ideology says that they need to wipe us off the planet. We do not have the ground forces for that type of war. On top of the drone they stopped and took over a Britain tanker today.

  22. They can shoot our drone down but if we shoot they're drawn down we're wrong they act like the name of the drone was Muhammad

  23. PROOF YOU'RE LIARS when your story changes.
    went from 3000' to 200'
    "mommy, they flew their drone too close to me in EVERYBODY'S waters, that is Very Provocative".. not like we pretend to be flying into their airspace and pull away at last second

  24. OK, let's play this game. I shoot one down, you shoot one down.
    Who will run out of drones first?
    Trump to Iran > "Do you feel lucky, punk?"

  25. US is thousands of miles away from its land threatening Iran. How it feels if Iran warships were close to US coast threatening the US.

  26. No conflict needed with tiny Iran. Just post our US and British ships in the international waters and protect all ships moving through. End of story.

  27. Now if Iran creates any bloodshed then you take military action. Otherwize just keep the sanctions on as MY Prez is doing. DT in 2020!!!!!!!!

  28. Iran’s official response was… it wasn’t our drone, we didn’t lose a drone. Lol their propaganda is ridiculous. On par with North Korea

  29. Sabre rattling is all this is. Everyone involved has too much to risk. The poor Iranian people are tired of the government they have.
    Iran has inferror technology. I'm waiting on the next Chernobyl Fukushima glow from them mis handling uranium. You don't rush the process.

  30. Let the Brit's get pissed off. Maybe they will need the assistance of the US to back them. A military assisted escort may eliminate the bothersome iranian interference. Seize the iranian nuclear facility. When you have them by the gonads, their heart and mind soon follow.

  31. Trump the Israeli goof is acting according to their handlers, the bankers in the city of london and israel. We are fighting for Israel. We, Americans are becoming more stupid than ever.

  32. Trump the Israeli goof is acting according to their handlers, the bankers in the city of london and israel. We are fighting for Israel. We, Americans are becoming more stupid than ever.

  33. Trump the Israeli goof is acting according to their handlers, the bankers in the city of london and israel. We are fighting for Israel. We, Americans are becoming more stupid than ever.

  34. President Trump please dont now begin a war! Before your reelection !!!
    Iran tray you to begin the war but please not now❗️❗️

  35. Too funny, attack on an American ship ? Was the drone a surveillance intended ? What is an American ship stationed there ? I do not see an Iranian ship in the Boston harbour ?!

  36. everybody who lives in Iran can understand iranian, just it!
    But i can tell: 98% of Iran population are against theocrat.terroristic regime in Iran(what and who born in Iraq like Ali Khamenei, the leader of radical Muslims-Shia). The people want just to enjoy and better life like other people, other countries! If international society think about freedom and peace then they must do something RIGHT! With minimum cost but max. effect and performance! you can think how, what, when, … we in iran can not do anything we do not have enough resources, power, or gun 😀 …

  37. I like it how some idiots buy into mass media junk and Lies. I wonder how you would take it when faced with reality!!
    I guess continuation of spin, alcohol, drugs, and pain killers help to cope or you would demand our constitutional rights and tune in to RON Paul channel to see some reality,

  38. ignoring multiple calls to stand down, How that happen? I thought a drone is unmanned, what next from this stupidity multiple calls to a missile to stand down?

  39. America did not shot down the drone it was brought down with electronic device to show America expertise in technologies.

  40. Half the morons… oops, I mean the panel… asking the questions, asked their questions in a manner indicating they are Hawks wanting war. What the heck!
