    Video shows Angry Afghan Villagers stoning wreck of U.S. Predator Drone


    American Drone Stoned by Angry Afghan Villagers - YouTube



    The following footage made its first appearance on Facebook a couple of days ago.

    It allegedly shows what seems to be a group of Afghans stoning the wreck of a (most probably American) MQ-1 Predator drone, while other people cheer and laugh.

    It’s almost impossible to determine why, when and where the unmanned aircraft crashed. Still, what can be said is that U.S. drones involved in overseas clandestine missions (in Afghanistan or Iran – do you remember the stealth RQ-170 Sentinel captured by Iran?) don’t carry any marking, serial, roundel etc.

    Our drones too do not carry roundels,I don't know why.
    Do you remember when one of our drones were shot down by Paks and in their memorial,they painted IAF roundel into the wings of our downed drone,without knowing we don't mark our drones!

    Using unmarked units is an old trick in warfare.

    It is also possible that the chemical attacks in Syria were carried out by <insert_regime_here>, to put the blame on al-Assad.

    If it's possible we should try to get it here and study it! :D Wonder if we'll find something useful in there for our own project.
