Message Subject BREAKING - IRAN just shot a US DRONE -
Poster Handle Anonymous Coward
Post Content
Drones are disposable. They are relatively low cost and unmanned and replace a very expensive jet and pilot in risky recon missions and eliminate the need to retask expensive and critical satellites doing higher priority work.
No need to start a full war over a drone. They are ‘nothing’ in the big picture.

Drones are expendable and it is no biggie they get shot down
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 55842729

Following the incident, President Donald Trump tweeted that Iran had made a "big mistake"...

....reported that Trump bemoaned the cost of the downed drone – around $130 million (not including R&D)

Seems the gent in the meme you posted disagrees

Well is better than shooting down an fighter plane and holding a American pilot hostage or possibly get executed. So I am kinda correct of what I just said.

F-35B: US$108.0M (LRIP 12 including engine)[8]
F-35C: US$103.1M (LRIP 12 including engine)

Points for the pilot. Imagine the uproar if one was captured after being shot down while illegally invading anothers airspace
