Iranian Company To Ship Toy Drone To Obama

Iranian Company To Ship Toy Drone To Obama

TEHRAN, Jan. 18 (UPI) — A non-profit company in Iran said it plans to send U.S. President Barack Obama miniature toy drones as a gift.

The company, Aaye Art Group, said it is honoring Obama’s request that Iran return a U.S. unmanned aircraft that crashed in the Islamic Republic last year, only the aircraft will be a miniature, CNN reported.

“We plan to send a full squadron of 12 to the White House for President Obama as a present,” said Reza Kioumarsi, spokesman for the Tehran-based non-profit, non-governmental novelty manufacturer.

The company is trying to determine Obama’s favorite color before sending the mini-drones, measuring about 1/80th the size of the real thing, Kioumarsi said.

In December, Obama said the United States asked Iran to return the highly classified RQ-170 Sentinel drone, saying, “We’ll see how the Iranians respond.”

Iran has said its armed forces downed the drone near Kashmar, about 140 miles from the country’s border with Afghanistan in December. That month, President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad suggested in a speech that Iran wouldn’t return the aircraft.

    Very interesting Article. Now for the big question….(Just a bit of Humor)
    Do these Models come with a Guarantee + Remote Control + Batteries.?
    Are these for Mr Obama’s Birthday?

    • Lee

      A toy that is not made in China,Should last longer then a few hours.
      When will they hit China Mart in the U.S.?

  • Obiwan

    Oops! I nearly forgot. Will Mr Obama have to pay for shipping? Is his current Credit Card valid?

    • taliesin

      Sure, he has all kinds of credit cards owned previously by very respectable dead people. They match the various aliases he has used since he came on the scene. Ajad better take care he is trying to be funny and we all know as the ayatollahs have constantly told us.” There is no humor in Islam ” and that’s a fact.

  • tim

    The ultimatre F— Y– obama by a toy company!!!!! That there is funny stuff. Obama has given the world the picture he deserves. A spineless ball less coward who bows to dictators and kisses muslim azz!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • Deerinwater

      There is no need of holding anything back Tim, tell us how you really feel.

      • temoler

        He left out that Barack obama is a Fraud, liar, TRAITOR, a Muslim with ties to Muslim brotherhood and a communist ANTI-American terrorist sympathizer, but there is so much more to distain with this corrupt administration but I don’t want to tell you all of how I feel since I want to let others share their thoughts.

    • Ellen

      So true! Obama’s comment, “We’ll see how the Iranians respond.” is ridiculous. How should we respond if the situation were reversed? Of course Iran shouldn’t return the war weapon. Imagine what the rest of the world would think of them. Imagine what the rest of the world thinks of Obama for naively asking for its return. Maybe Obama should go to Mexico and ask the drug lords to return the weapons from the failed Fast & Furious project. Maybe he should call Russia and tell them not to sell fighter planes to Syria. Maybe he should call China and ask them to relieve all our debt. Utopia doesn’t exist and someone needs to inform Obama that his quest for it has failed.

    • Alfredo

      Tim, I feel the same way about him.

  • Deerinwater

    LOL! well that’s a start. It’s affirmation that our wish’s has been delivered and heard by most everyone.

    Let’s see how that works for them, It might take awhile to read the last line in this story.

    While not attempting to down play the lost, it’s very construction and the nature of it’s task and probability of being “compromised” was considered from the offset. It was by no means our top line model while much of the air-frame does share top line features and assemble.

    Without saying more then I should, the composite material and bonding agents are extremely complex and would take years to back engineer,learn to use and reproduce, and I’ve quite certain that they will. But it is a laborious process and then still each piece must be put though the riggers long testing.

    I hate the lose, Iran with sell it to China more then likely. Why? Process of elimination. Who would want it? Politics, money, ambitions and ability.

    It’s like Captain Kick losing and leaving behind his lazer pistol behind on a developing planet. Opps! “I just hate that when that happens”

  • Ted Crawford

    Clearly Ayatollah Khamenei has the clear picture of Obamas merit! Now he is busily trying to figure a way to funnel money and votes to the Paul campaign. The only thing better for Irans delusional quest for Global jhad than Obama would be Ron Paul busily building his American version of the Maginot Line!

    • eddie47d

      Considering there has been an American Jihad against the Middle East for decades;your saying that there is an Iranian Global Jihad is a wee bit laughable. Okay,China may have unleashed a economic Jihad on the Global community and has everyone running scared….but Iran? Ahmadinejad is just another big mouth in the world like his pal Chavez. They’re about as relevant as some of the Republican contenders for President. I guess we can say Ahmadinejad is Toying with us.

  • David in MA

    Lets hope they are remote controlled and made of C-4 Plastic.

  • Deerinwater

    This attempt to “personalize” a military operations lost of an surveillance platform is darn near comical and reaching absurd proportion.

    How do you justify and validate such hate? You must have consumed a lot of hate over a long period of time to direct such vial contempt and disrespect to just one person.

  • JUKEBOX

    How appropriate! The Iranians are sending a toy plane to a toy President. That proves how much they respect and fear this wimp.

  • Lastmanstanding

    THAT IS FREAKING AWESOME!!!…I wonder if it looks that good that maybe they can make him a real looking birth certificate!

    Keep your eyes open for the real one on Jan. 26 as he (barry) is to be in court…I’m sure that another diversion from his is ready for action.

    These guys are on their way out.

  • Gringo Infidel

    Too funny – like sending a football player apple turnovers for each one of their fumbles.

    Others have said this already – photo the Iranians released looks more like a parade float than the real drones I have seen first hand. Did the U.S. ‘lose’ a drone over Iran? Probably. Is this a picture of the lost drone? Likely not.

  • 45caliber

    This sounds like what I did to my oldest son on his 16th birthday. He was very insistent that I MUST give him a car for his birthday. Other parents did, so I had to give him one.

    So I did. A Matchbox Mustang.

  • Jay

    Too funny!!! I wait with abated breath for Obama’s response!

  • http://facebook Namvet 66/67

    Being a Narcissistic, Obama will campaign and proudly will claim that he made Iran return that CIA Drone, even if it is a Toy, he can say, it is the thought that counts.

    Obama already is spinning, that boondoggle loan to Solyndra Corp, saying he has no regrets and that it was a good idea and he can’t see anything wrong with, them going bankrupt or that they laid off all their employee’s and will never pay a dime back or as they give their management big bonuses in profit sharing..

  • carol

    Maybe he can trade more CIA agents in return for the drone.

    Isn’t that what he did after the murder of Osama bin hidin’? :-(

  • http://Wisesooth.PatriotActionNetwork.com Wisesooth

    Why doesn’t Obama send Iran a bobble-head doll of himself postage-due re-using the box that contained the miniature drone? Oh, I forgot. It is too large to fit the box.

    Anothe observation puzzles me. If the drone crashed, why is it still in one piece without a scratch on it anywhere? I suspect that it was electronically captured and landed safely on Iranian turf with a wee bit of help from the Russians.

  • geery maloney

  • ohoh

    Maybe these will be the tennis balls for the next Agincourt.

  • WickedPickle

    I can’t understand that as many brainiacs as there are within our top security military that they would omit placing a virus into the on-board computer then activate it when they get shot down.. I guess taking a poison pill only applies to humans who aren’t as nearly worth the price of a war toy.

  • Melissa

    I was wondering if this is solar powered?

  • J.Welander

    A gratuity.

  • Melissa
