The Iranian government has sent letters to UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon and the United Nations Security Council today complaining about “illegal and provocative acts” carried out by the US Navy along their coast.
The complaint included the US drone overflight earlier this month, which US officials claimed was just barely outside of Iranian airspace and which Iranians say was just barely inside it. The drone was fired on, but not damaged.
The Iranian Ambassador said there were seven other US overflights before the drone incident, all centered on the coastal city of Bushehr (the home of a Russian-built nuclear reactor), and all of which ignored radio warnings.
The US has yet to comment on the letter, but it seems to put the firing on the US drone in a different context if US overflights had happened several times in the month leading up to it. The US rarely comments directly on its drones.

The Iranians need to shoot down the US planes overflying their airspace. You can bet if the Iranians attempted to overfly US airspace they would be shot down and probably invaded as a pretext to not only control Iranian oil but also to more importantly continue US dollar fiat currency status.
Iranian's shooting US drones is what the Black House precisely wants. THey are looking for a casus belli.
We the people do not condone these drone actions against Iran; this is conducted by the .5% establishment who have essentially hijacked our government and don't respect the rule of law domestically or internationally. So, just shoot the damn things down because these hijackers would absolutely shoot these drones down if it were vice versa and they would do it if they were 50 miles outside the coastline.
Hope upon hope in their hearts do all our Empire builders that their pending invasion of Iran be started by an Iran act of violence in International waters.
These are the same Americans, who claim a two hundred mile exclusion zone around thier carriers even out in the middle of the Ocean! Also remember the Americans have shot down a commercial airliner flying in international waters, alledging it was attacking their ship, all things are not the same in American exceptionalism! These are the Same Americans who train Heavy machine guns at boats in friendly ports, I have been the suspect target myself!
In WW II, the Brits found a way of knocking out Nazi V1 flying bombs without shooting them down.
