I bet there is some technological interesting material on board this MQ-1 Reaper…. the Russians & Iranians have a pretty good relationship with the Taliban….Thanks U.S.? ?

And to think what that money could have done towards helping American citizens, rather than devoting a grossly inflated and largely inefficient military budget, achieving dismal results.

The US dont have any selfdestruct option on them?
A handfull ( or less depending on the explosive) of wellplaced explosive would vaporize it, and together with the remaining fuel there would be nothing left of it,

Perhaps the Russian tested some ECM on it and it crashed?

Yes but the way America builds stuff, they would be self destructing all the time, and taking out the guys putting air in the tyres.

Haha fair point
