Well you around the shower I've booked Ralph Peters for you for the after the show show of course he won't be involved but he was yeah.
-- was I had.
Sure but I don't.
He hasn't -- damp.
-- -- it was a baby shower.
No matter what is Ralph Peters really there he's -- on here and I -- what are you doing.
I'm sitting in the studio while awaiting the talk -- -- -- personal.
I was not actually in the shower.
Thank you very much I'm okay I'm just saying that flat out that has a great relief actually thank you think.
Hey Ralph what do you make you can we talk to you about some things that are in the news right now what do you make sure -- yesterday we discover.
That apparently the Iran eons provoked us with an act of war by shoot it one of our drones away from.
It happened five days before the election we find out two days after the election -- -- is just a coincidence that's not political as -- -- sure it's a coincidence just a way to terrorist attack him in Gaza just happened to be on ninth the anniversary of 9/11 coincidence I mean this this is.
Hope President Obama at the beginning his first term said it would be the most open administration history.
And with -- mainstream media is collusion this guy was reelected largely.
-- cover -- are certainly his electoral chances were enhanced by.
Or media to cover up the truth about Ben Ghazi.
And now we know the administration itself.
This act of war against an American aircraft on November 1 and I -- some of the troubles me about this.
It's like our military is rightfully can lawfully subservient to its political masters that's way it works and but you don't want to politicize.
And I'm very concerned by the fact that.
We heard nothing from our military about this.
And the idea you know that there was all because -- mission was classified.
Drone the -- details made in class why we've goes up the air and -- all the time.
When somebody opens fire on -- US military or intelligence asset.
That is news the American people need to know and as I've said Brian -- this administration would have tried to cover up Pearl Harbor could just lot of secrecy.
And it's really -- -- really hurts our republic apart from all the partisan partisan politics.
When it's an administration of cover -- from fast and furious to this drone known since.
Get -- drone.
It's something to be genuinely concerned about my and I don't go in -- for hysterics.
Yeah but beyond concerned -- some curious is happening there are these acts of war are things that are clearly aggressive.
Maneuvers by other countries did the killing of our ambassador and three other Americans of the shooting down our attempts to shoot at our.
Our -- and what is our response is almost as though since Afghanistan and Iran.
We don't think bit -- having a military response what what do we do about this how only answering these thing.
It's well certainly in the case of the drones.
Attack specifically the correct response would be to set up an aerial ambush wait.
For the arranged to do this again.
And -- their planes out of the sky if they -- -- -- international airspace.
Maybe it will happen I doubt it because this administration.
Desperately wants to renew negotiations.
With Iran over Iranian nuclear.
And that the pursuit thereof.
And then I don't think they're gonna do anything.
To alienate Iran and Iran knows -- think they have a pretty good sense of us pretty good -- feel for how we react and especially the Obama administration reacts.
So they want to negotiate right now obviously want to draw things out sanctions are biting.
But the way I think when the negotiations.
Is agreed has bullies -- a tough stance make us begged and negotiate.
Then they'll draw the negotiations for a -- -- for four more years -- -- get four more years closer to nukes so -- You -- -- clumsy a lot of things there's always a danger of while miscalculation on both sides.
But they are very very good at playing on our political needs -- -- just casket exit question we had a Geraldo on about an hour ago during our live telecast and he said that he felt that the Iran -- You know they see the drone they're flying up in the airplanes date on purpose.
Missed -- they took some shots at it but they missed it do you -- -- that you know just to send us a warning.
Well woman I love corolla.
Two I wish I agree that good a mustache -- Three now he got this wrong.
It once the highest levels in Iran it would've been the highest levels.
Decided to fire on -- US drone an international airspace.
They would want to knock it down ten minutes if they would have figured this is no pilot -- to drone they can get away -- it send a strong message.
They sent up an old Russian built aircraft and knock off of -- can.
That the Russians still -- to maintain things the Russians do maintenance with sledgehammers.
-- pilots don't get good air to air training.
I mean they're not remotely capable compared our -- true and it looks to me like they didn't properly calibrate the nose -- -- that's inside baseball stuff.
We put it all together old airplane.
No training in air -- air combat poor pilots and on calibrated -- They made two passes they shot up their basic -- of ammunition.
And they couldn't hit the drove our pilots wouldn't have missed they missed and I'm sure a lot a lot of -- and a chain of command.
Got their butts chewed out because for the Iranians it's an embarrassment that he they couldn't hit a slow moving -- That's such a good point -- that's why would call -- up and that's what you show up Ralph Peters thank you very much for joining us loves you as well have a great weekend.
What he does is he sure is the most heat -- house -- that wow that's like his discrete cute and we should probably.
-- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- since world.
