Iran Versus the Flying Saucers

I recently did a post on the Iranian F-14 fleet.  A Loyal Reader emailed a story that…seemed a little odd at first.  After a brisk googling, it seems to have legs.

F-14-IRIAF 2012

It’s common knowledge that Iran has been bitching about “CIA Drones” flying around their country.  The IRIAFA has been going ape shit trying to track, intercept and shoot these  “CIA Drones”.   What is coming to light that these “CIA Drones” are doing some odd things.

  • Tracked by F-14’s at speeds in excess of Mach 10 (let’s say 7200 mph).
  • Hovering
  • Glowing with a blue light.
  • Performing “astonishing flight characteristics.”
  • Leaving the atmosphere
  • Disabling tracking and weapons systems.

One Tomcat taking off to intercept a luminous object on Jan. 26, 2012 mysteriously exploded, killing both crewmen. Taghvaee implies the alleged UAV was somehow responsible, as the F-14 in question was “one of the fittest” of the 40 or so Tomcats they claim to have in service.

Uncle Sugar has some pretty cool toys but I don’t think we have anything this radical.  The Belgium Air Force admits chasing UFO’s in their airspace.  The Russians admit to planning and “maybe” executing said plans.  The Mexican Air Force has UFO’s join airshow formations on more or less a regular basis. Even the U.S. Air Force chases (more or less) things flying over….say…Phoenix.

Take a Deep Breath

UFO’s are tracked and intercepted by every air force in the world.  Because by definition, an Unidentified Flying Object is just that.  Something spotted in the air that officials or witnesses have no idea what it is.  They are by definition “Unidentified”.  99.9% of these are then identified.

  • Someone like the pilot comes on the radio and announces who it is.
  • Someone takes off and goes up there to eyeball the thing.
  • Someone on a radar system I.D.’s it.
  • Someone comes up with an explanation.  Like swamp gas, weather balloons or the planet Venus.

Is it a big jump that in a fit of institutional paranoia, Iranians officials default to “CIA Drones” whenever they can’t figure out what the hell is happening?

So if Iranian F-14s truly are chasing around super-fast, super-high-flying and lethal UFOs, what exactly are they?

Hell if I know.
