You know that both the content and that comment are made up stories, right?
User avatar #68 to #51 - crampypmarc (04/21/2013) [-]
Actually, everything is made up. Reality as we know is just an illusion.

Nah...I'm just fukin' around. Everything is fine. Just carry on with your lives. Ta-taa...

Yes, it's fake, just like OP's post is fake.

It's called a joke.

"you are in ours and you do not have permission, leave or we will intercept."
"haha ******* try it"

User avatar #13 to #7 - aahrg (04/21/2013) [-]
are you retarded?

If this even happened, the only thing that decides who's right is which country's airspace the american was in.

Why the **** would they say that he was in Iranian airspace if he wasnt? inb4 "why would he say he was in Iraqi airspace" The chance of the Iranian air defence not knowing their borders or having radar problem is probably quite alot lower than a US pilot accidentially entering Iranian airspace
User avatar #19 to #7 - contacta (04/21/2013) [-]
yes in this instance the iranians are right or do you think a ******* jet can fly trough every airspace without getting shot down?
User avatar #29 to #19 - waffies (04/21/2013) [-]
well... i mean... okay: hold on.

Yes, if he flew through their airspace, he's at fault, but in this post, the argument is "is he in airspace A or B?" He believes he's in one, they believe he's in another.... there's not enough evidence here to know for sure
User avatar #31 to #29 - contacta (04/21/2013) [-]
i think the recrutment program of the us airforce is good enough to find people who will know where the **** they are i mean sometimes jets can only fly in small corridors so a certain set of skills should be given...
User avatar #32 to #31 - waffies (04/21/2013) [-]
you again assume that the iranians are right. We don't know where he is! what if they saw a blip on radar flying over debated air, or right on the border? Maybe he knows where he is, and the iranians disagree?
User avatar #61 to #4 - gnillort (04/21/2013) [-]
it's not just that he has a better "war machine" it's the fact that he's from the United States.. so he knows that if they do anything to him, they're pretty much ****** .
User avatar #59 to #4 - tredbear (04/21/2013) [-]
and that is how America started WWIII because they thought they could do whatever the **** they wanted.
#11 - anon (04/21/2013) [-]
if your flying from Europe to the Emirates, you wouldn't fly any where close to Iran. All countries en-route are friendlies with the exclusion of Syria (who have a really crappy air defense system). Also why in the world would a single f-18 fly any where, a Marine corps at that?
User avatar #22 - sirfisticuffs (04/21/2013) [-]
That's not being awesome it's just called being a cunt.
User avatar #37 to #22 - disturbedfan (04/21/2013) [-]
Except he wasn't in their airspace.
#66 - kikkelikeiju (04/21/2013) [-]
Y´all need to realise that this is a joke. It´s not true. It´s makebelief, a madeup story, with the intention to make you chuckle/smile/laugh.
So ******* STOP arguing already!
"The Iranians r stoopid" "No, the ´murican is a cunt"
People going ******* over an anecdote, I mean ******* c´mon!

And yes, I mad.
User avatar #26 - swetytntstiky (04/21/2013) [-]
so now invading airspace is called "awesome" ...
User avatar #34 to #26 - heartlessrobot (04/21/2013) [-]
No, it's awesome when some jackhole claims the airspace of another country for their own.
User avatar #38 to #34 - heartlessrobot (04/21/2013) [-]
By that I meant Iran was trying to say Iraq's airspace was theirs.
#10 - anon (04/21/2013) [-]
Fake and gay.
#41 - anon (04/21/2013) [-]
If this is true, that pilot is a retarded faggot
User avatar #12 - biomedic (04/21/2013) [-]
yup a lone flight straying into foreign airspace would quickly threaten Iran and risk an international conflict.
User avatar #46 - whiplasher (04/21/2013) [-]
...yeah, like the pilot would have actually engaged the interceptor aircraft without approval of the HQ.
#62 to #46 - anon (04/21/2013) [-]
If they come under fire pilots are allowed to engage.

Obviously.
User avatar #21 - lyiat ONLINE (04/21/2013) [-]
This is one of the most BS stories. If this ever happened, that marine would be so fired he wouldn't be able to flip burgers at a ******* McDonalds when they were down chewing his ass off.
#23 - davvi (04/21/2013) [-]
and people still wonder why americans are hated?

User avatar #35 to #23 - heartlessrobot (04/21/2013) [-]
Why? Because he was flying through Iraqi airspace and Iran was getting uppity?
User avatar #43 to #35 - mephiblis ONLINE (04/21/2013) [-]
No, because he was a moron flying in Iranian airspace thinking it was Iraqi. But Iraq, Iran, what's the difference, Freedums, fk yeh.
User avatar #44 to #43 - heartlessrobot (04/21/2013) [-]
They have navigation systems that tell them where they are and log their locations, Iran was just being a tool.
User avatar #45 to #44 - mephiblis ONLINE (04/21/2013) [-]
Or maybe the pilot was being a tool.
#49 to #45 - chimeechang (04/21/2013) [-]
@mephiblis or maybe you're wrong and have no argument.
User avatar #52 to #49 - mephiblis ONLINE (04/21/2013) [-]
The same applies to yourself, simple logic.
User avatar #47 to #45 - heartlessrobot (04/21/2013) [-]
He would have been court marshialed and this would have made headlines.
User avatar #48 to #47 - mephiblis ONLINE (04/21/2013) [-]
Like all those soldiers/pilots that have killed civilians have been court-martialed?
User avatar #50 to #48 - heartlessrobot (04/21/2013) [-]
There is a difference between collateral damage and deliberately invading the airspace of a hostile country against orders.
User avatar #55 to #50 - mephiblis ONLINE (04/21/2013) [-]
You're both missing the point and making an assumption. The point was, us troops don't get court-martialed for anything except going against the orders of their superiors and you're making an assumption that him invading Iranian airspace was against orders.

Truth is, there is no evidence to support neither my claims nor yours but mine can be backed by history if you choose to look at all the crap that the U.S has pulled in the past.
User avatar #53 to #23 - oosime (04/21/2013) [-]
It's a fake story, though.
User avatar #67 - bobthedilder (04/21/2013) [-]
For any people going to comment saying something along the lines of, "The Iranian was wrong". Prepare for massive red thumbs from everybody who doesn't live in the U.S.

Just a heads up.
User avatar #25 - Bruda ONLINE (04/21/2013) [-]
The butt hurt in the comments is amazing.
User avatar #18 - contacta (04/21/2013) [-]
******** has a new flavor btw this never happend as you may or may not know thats a reason to start a war so stop ************ you ******* american cunt
#17 - awesomechardey (04/21/2013) [-]

Probably faked, like http://www.snopes.com/military/lighthouse.asp
User avatar #2 to #1 - Whaaaaaaaaa (04/21/2013) [-]
The way it was heard yes, the conversation though not word for word did go like this.
User avatar #3 to #2 - alexhill (04/21/2013) [-]
Where is your source then Mr internet man?
#60 - tredbear (04/21/2013) [-]
as silly as Iran makes their military parades, they are still able to defend their land, and will will not go down without a fight, and why in the world would some American cunt risk world conflict by flying into foreign airspace and threaten a whole air force lone wolf style? Iran has some pretty good fighter pilots, this is complete 			********		, this American cunt is not going to last long if he keeps this up.

User avatar #69 to #60 - ronyx (04/21/2013) [-]
It's still a joke you ******* , the US still has the best military in the world so sit your ass down.
User avatar #70 to #69 - aptorian (04/21/2013) [-]
false the Chinese military is larger and better funded.
User avatar #74 to #70 - reaperssprint ONLINE (04/21/2013) [-]
But not better trained nor do they possess superior technology.
User avatar #76 to #74 - aptorian (04/21/2013) [-]
but it is on par plus the USA does not have the best overall training ether
User avatar #77 to #76 - reaperssprint ONLINE (04/21/2013) [-]
Better than China's, no?
User avatar #78 to #77 - aptorian (04/22/2013) [-]
maybe
User avatar #79 to #78 - reaperssprint ONLINE (04/22/2013) [-]
Ok then, I rest my case.
User avatar #72 to #70 - ronyx (04/21/2013) [-]

User avatar #63 to #60 - skeetonamber (04/21/2013) [-]
