TEHRAN (Iran News) – Iranian Drones Turn Into U.S. Nightmare. The Islamic Republic of Iran in recent years has turned into a nightmare for the U.S. and its allies as the more the country progresses in scientific and military fields, the more the Westerners get worried and angry.
Let’s have a flashback at an amazing military achievement which happened almost ten years ago which was a turning point in Iran’s scientific and military progress.
10 years ago, Iran captured a highly-sophisticated U.S. drone in the northeast of the country. RQ-170 was brought down with minimum damage by Iran’s cyber warfare units. Iran managed to make a copy of the drone and add new features to it. Iran now has a wide-range of drones for different purposes.
And now Tehran has become one of the top ten drone manufacturers of the world so that even the U.S. fears of this progress and the future progresses of the Islamic Republic of Iran.
On Wednesday and in yet another move against Iran, the U.S. House Foreign Affairs Committee passed a bill to restrict the proliferation of Iran’s military drones. This is while negotiations over the removal of anti-Iran sanctions are in progress in the Austrian capital Vienna.
Tehran has time and again proven that its military prowess is purely defensive. So, how can Washington’s move be justified when the US sells bombs and drones to other countries that use them in unjust wars to kill civilians?
Here a question is raised by the impartial politicians and political analysts: How can Washington’s attempt to restrict the proliferation of Iran’s military drones be justified when the U.S. sells bombs and drones to other countries that use them in unjust wars to kill civilians?
A bipartisan group of leading members of the U.S. House Committee on Foreign Affairs just passed a bill aimed at restricting Iran’s defensive military prowess.
The Stop Iranian Drones Act bans the supply, sale, or transfer, of military drones to or from Iran under US law. The bill addresses, what the US claims to be, the growing threat of Iran’s unmanned aerial vehicle program.
However, despite attaining self-sufficiency in the arms industry, making great progress in developing and manufacturing a broad range of military equipment in recent years, Iran has time and again proven that its military capabilities are purely defensive in the face of moves by the U.S. and its regional allies, who have been fomenting chaos and tension in the region.
Last month the Iranian army intercepted two U.S. unmanned aerial vehicles, which had penetrated Iranian airspace in an area where Iran was holding massive drills. They were sent on their way with a stern warning to stay away from the zone.
The ban imposed on the Iranian military drones comes amid ongoing talks over the removal of anti-Iran Sanctions between Tehran and the signatories to the 2015 nuclear deal in Vienna.
The U.S. baselessly accuses Iran of conducting drone attacks in West Asia, while Washington has well documented blood on its hands, having killed thousands upon thousands of innocent civilians by conducting their own hypocritical drone and air strikes in the region.
Iran has proved in recent years that it is determined to advance its scientific and self-defense military programs and sanctions are unable to stop the country and what the U.S. does is something in vain and Iranians do not even give a damn to such approvals and bans of the U.S. and they have proved the world that if there is a will, there is a way and Iranians have proved their will for progress to make ineffective the U.S. bans.
Tehran is using the technology of drone in its civil sector and this is also another upset for the West that Iranians are gradually cutting their dependence to the West. There are several fields for taking advantage of the drones that Iran has tried to employ them.
According to reports, the use of drones in the Iranian farms has tripled this calendar year to nearly 460 units. Iran’s agriculture ministry has said that it is encouraging the use of drones on farms across the country through offering cheap loans to farmers and launching information campaigns to boost the application of the technology.
Head of the ministry’s Agriculture Mechanization Expansion Center said that demand and use of drones in the Iranian farms had risen three-fold since the start of the current calendar year in late March compared to the previous year.
The official said that 12 domestic companies have supplied 65 models and brands of drones for use in the Iranian agriculture sector, adding that the number of drones used in the farms has increased to reach nearly 460 units.
He also said drones are mostly used for spraying pesticide in the Iranian farms, adding that they have also been used to apply fertilizers, for pollination and for sowing seed in farms in remote regions.
This is just a simple example for using drone in the civil fields and Iran can expand its working on drone to improve this technology and make the world envy it.
So such unstoppable progresses can hurt the West and for this reason they have to resort to any tricks and pretexts as well as claims to stop Iran but Iran has set its doctrine in 1979 when the Islamic Revolution emerged and the Islamic Republic of Iran was formed, and the doctrine of the country is to rely on own capabilities and to cut dependence no matter what the West and its allies say because any progress and achievement in Tehran is like a thorn in the eyes of them and such nonsense bans and threats are in vein.
