1. This drone is the best they can do so I'll be happy for them
Kevin ,   Israel   (10.11.12)
2. Iran's Drone
Robert Barnet ,   London, U.K   (10.11.12)
There is no way the Drone to get images on Dimona site while flying from Haifa bay. Iranians are just using the info provided by Israel in order to confirm their propaganda. Do not fall into their trap , if they had the ability to attack Israel they would do so. Iran is just a barking dog.
3. Google earth would of been much cheaper
Mike ,   Israel   (10.11.12)
4. Iran just opened warfare...

Gotta take em' where ya can get em'
6. Well, let's see
Sarah B ,   U.S.A. / Israel   (10.11.12)
Shall we look at some recent Iranian gems? Sure, why not. 1. Iran has developed second-generation centrifuges that far surpass anything in the West. 2. Two weeks later: Iran has developed third-generation centrifuges that far surpass anything in the West. (Truth: Iran's centrifuges date to the 1970s, and are not of Iranian manufacture at all.) 3. Some years back, Iran concluded a deal by which Russia would sell to Iran it's top of the line missile defense system. Well, following pressure from the West, Russia canceled the deal. Three weeks later, Iran announced that it had reversed engineered an earlier (woefully out of date) Russian defense system, and had built something bigger, badder and better. Three weeks. 4. Iran sends a toy monkey into space. Not into orbit, mind you; into space -- a straight shot; up and back. A month later, Iran announced that it would put a man on the moon in two years. It goes on, and on and on. The Iranians say lots of things, and very little of it bears any semblance to the truth. They are trying to find a reason -- any reason, no matter how implausible -- to galvanize the Iranian people -- who are growing VERY restless -- to rally around the brutal and totalitarian Islamic regime. The problems in Iran are legion, and are not easily fixed. I do not think that the Iranian people perceive Israel as their enemy. While other Moslem countries remain deep in the throes of Islamic excess, indications are that the Iranian people have for the most part grown tired of living in a cruel theocracy, they have grown tired of being a pariah state, they have grown tired of having a leadership that supports terrorism abroad while doing nothing to stem the rising tide of unemployment in Iran, the runaway inflation, the painful shortages and the worthlessness of the rial. With Western embassy after embassy closing in Teheran, a popular previous form of escape -- study abroad -- is now no longer possible for Iranian youth who desire to escape. With so many areas of academia now closed to women, a lot of dreams in Iran are dying. The Iranian people are very unhappy. That Iran's leadership could even think for one moment that promulgating an obvious lie about photographing the Israeli installation at Dimona would rally the Iranian people around their failed government is ludicrous. Iran has crossed the Rubicon -- the Iranian people see their government -- and not Israel -- as its enemy. No quantity of lies can save the Iranian government. It's only a matter of time, now.
7. Iran should try Google Earth/ subscribe to a Satellite Servi
Alan ,   SA   (10.11.12)
8. Barak needed US permision to shoot the drone down
ab   (10.11.12)
and don't blame him,it could have been US drone spying on Israel
9.  In fact
sam ,   colorado-USA   (10.11.12)
In fact {Hezbollah launched the drone in cooperation with Iran} The second fact the problem how this Drone penetrated airspace and took the the flying for half an hour over the Dimona reactor this is a dangerous neglect and the success for them????????????
10. 6 TO SARH B
sam ,   colorado-USA   (10.11.12)
Your words be good,I sometimes admired for your analysis but please does not diminish the ability of the enemy because penetrate this Drone very dangerous thing
11. #6 Sarah B - Exactly Right, thanks
Ron ,   Seattle USA   (10.11.12)
12. Nowhere near
Robert ,   New Jersey, USA   (10.11.12)
The drone never got near Dimona. It was tracked by the IAF until over an unpopulated area of Israel then shot down. Baghdad Bob has a new job in the Iran Disinformation Ministry.
13. To: Sam at No. 10
Sarah B ,   U.S.A. / Israel   (10.11.12)
Israel is very, very careful about Israeli airspace. Especially about anything that might be headed towards Dimona. Anything that does not identify itself or looks suspicious gets shot down. Shoot first; ask questions later. It's called disinformation, honey.
14. Funny
Mea   (10.11.12)
Google it, genius.
15. Must have used an angled, long-range camera
William ,   Israel   (10.11.12)
because the UAV never made it close to Dimona to get clear photos.
16. To: William at No. 15
Sarah B ,   U.S.A. / Israel   (10.11.12)
I doubt that Iran or Hezbollah have the requisite technology for real-time photography, anyway.
17. FELLOW READERS...............................
MAHMOOD ,   LONDON-UK   (10.12.12)
Reading talk-back coloumns from ~Sarah of USA/Israel,one would think she was flying just above the drone to be able to monitor what the drone had and not.:)
18. To: No. 17
Sarah B ,   U.S.A. / Israel   (10.12.12)
Me, personally? No, of course not. But I'll bet Israel did, and was observing and tracking the drone all the way on its doomed voyage .... Why is it that when you have absolutely nothing of substance to say (which happens to be nearly all the time), you resort to personal attacks? All that you achieve -- apart from making me laugh which is likely not your objective -- is that you reinforce what everyone already knows: you're a fool with absolutely nothing to contribute.
MAHMOOD ,   LONDON-UK   (10.12.12)
Because you do it on everyone's behalf.Never did I mean to personalise my talk-back but you seem to be exceeding even the hierachy in Israel and that what makes me laugh for a change.If you were to collect all your talk-back for the last six years,the war should have already become a history. Now you are suggesting that Israel followed the drone all the way and then shot it down?well,what could be more foolish than what you write?In fact,the first good quality missile did not even hit the drone.........................waste of American taxpayers money,Sarah.
