Hunter - Killer 'Reaper' Drones Bound For Iraq

MQ-9_Reaper2.jpgIt's the size of a jet fighter, powered by a turboprop engine, able to fly at 300 mph and reach 50,000 feet, is outfitted with infrared, laser and radar targeting, carries a ton and a half of guided bombs and missiles, the pilot sits at a video console 7,000 miles away in Nevada, and they're bound for Afghanistan and Iraq.

So, could their deployment have anything to do with Iran?
