Iran To Give Back America Drone To Obama … The Only Problem It Looks Like a Miniature Pink Plastic Malibu Barbie Drone
Iran taunts Obama …
Iran continues to mock America and the weak leadership of President Barack Obama. If the crash of the RQ-170 drone in Iran was not embarrassing enough, Iran has just upped the ante. They stated they would return a miniature plastic version, a pink one has been reserved for President Obama. Great, its nice to be considered a laughing stock in the world isn’t it. Makes one long for the days of a “cowboy” in office.
An Iranian firm, seeking to capitalize on the frenzy that followed the crash of the drone — and American calls to have it returned — is now producing miniaturized toy versions of the craft. Most of the toys, which come in several colors and are made of Iranian plastic, have already been snapped up by Iranian government organizations, according to the group that manufactures them.
At least one model — a pink one — has been reserved for President Obama.
“He said he wanted it back, and we will send him one,” said Reza Kioumarsi, the head of cultural production at the Ayeh Art group.

US Navy Rescues Iranian Ship & Sailors held by Somali Pirates … Because America is Just So Evil … Iran Says a “welcome and humanitarian act”
How must the following story be reported in Iran to its people? AMERICA TO THE RESCUE …
Talk about your ironies … The US Navy ship was in the area due to Iranian hostilities. Once again, America to the rescue! The U.S. Navy destroyer USS Kidd responded to a distress call from the Iranian vessel, , the Al Molai, that had been held captive for more than 40 days, by Somali pirates. The result, the US cavalry to the rescue and 13 Iranian fishing sailors were saved. A U.S. Navy team boarded the ship and detained 15 suspected Somali pirates.
A U.S. Navy destroyer has rescued an Iranian fishing boat that had been commandeered by suspected pirates just days after Tehran warned the U.S. to keep its warships out of the Persian Gulf.
American forces flying off the guided-missile destroyer USS Kidd responded to a distress call from the Iranian vessel, the Al Molai, which had been held captive for more than 40 days, the U.S. Navy said Friday. The Kidd was sailing in the Arabian Sea, after leaving the Persian Gulf, when it came to the sailors’ aid.
Image that? The US Navy ship was in the area due to the Iranian government in Tehran threats to cut off the Strait of Hormuz. We have been told by Iranian officials that the US is no longer welcome in the Gulf. I bet these Iranian fishing sailors rescued by the US Navy beg to differ. Whether at odds with a country or not, the United States is always there to lend a helping hand … A note to the haters of America, “It’s what we do.”
“It’s what we do. And it’s what we do in that part of the world. We get a distress call, as we did in this case, even though it came from an Iranian ship. When the pirates went after them, we respond to those calls,” Panetta said. “We did what we have to do in that situation. I think it just sends an important message to the world that the United States is going to abide by international rules and international order, and that’s exactly what we did here.”
This is what separates the Unites states from the other countries that US “haters” try to compare us to and say we are the same. Could we have expected the Iranian government to have come to a US boats rescue? Hmm? Not unless they wanted to take possession of the boat like a military drone.
OH, THE IRONY
UPDATE I: First the irony and now for something completely different … Wow, how much worldwide exposure did this humanitarian act get … Iran has finally commented and states that the January 5 US Navy operation was a “welcome and humanitarian act.”
Foreign Ministry spokesman Ramin Mehmanparast told Iran’s Arabic-language broadcaster, Al-Alam, that “all nations should display such behavior.”
“We consider the actions of the U.S. forces in saving the lives of the Iranian seamen to be a humanitarian and positive act and we welcome such behavior,” Mehmanparast was quoted as saying.
According to ABC News, two US hikers Josh Fattal and Shane Bauer have been freed by Iran. As per their lawyer, the two Americans held captive in an Iranian prison for over two years will be set free today. A second Iranian judge has finally signed their release order. Iran had previously sentenced Josh Fattal and Shane Bauer to 8 years in prison as spies.
Attorney Masoud Shafii, the lawyer representing the Americans, said that the only thing now keeping Shane Bauer and Joshua Fattal behind bars is the $500,00 bail each, which their lawyer tells ABC News could be processed today.
“The natural path has taken its course. As I had mentioned before, I was waiting for a signature. This has now happened. There was a small problem with the bail. I requested from them to deal with this problem. I asked them to go to the Central Bank to resolve the issue. I hope that this will be resolved today,” Shafii said today.
What a shock that the release comes right before Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad is set to speak in NYC at the UN in front of the General Assembly.
UPDATE I: Josh Fattal & Shane Bauer get outta Dodge after freed from prison … American Hikers Leave Iran Following Prison Release.
The Iranian kangaroo court has spoken …
The two American hikers, Shane Bauer & Josh Fattal, who were arrested on July 31, 2009 near Iran’s border with Iraq, along with a third American Sarah Shourd, by the Iranian regime have been sentenced in Iran to 8 years as US spies. They were convicted for for espionage and illegal entry.
“In connection with illegal entry into Iranian territory each was given three years in jail and in connection with the charge of cooperating with American intelligence service, each was given five years in jail,” a state TV website said, quoting what it called an informed judiciary source.
They have 20 days to appeal, it said.
The affair has compounded tensions between Tehran and Washington, which have had no diplomatic relations since the storming of the U.S. embassy after the 1979 Islamic Revolution.
There was no immediate comment from U.S. officials.
Thankfully, Sarah Shourd was freed on $500,000 bail in September 2010, returned home and never returned back to Iran. What will be the reaction of the Obama Administration to the sentencing? Sorry, Obama was to busy on vacation to respond to two Americans being unjustly imprisoned.
Obviously, this was a hard line message by Iran to test the Obama Administration … but all that came from the State Department was that they restated the U.S. appeals for their release, “It is time to reunite them with their families.” I guess its better than an Obama apology.
Oh the irony, a regime like Iran enforcing their borders, but Barack Obama thinks that its perfectly ok for illegals to come across the border as long as they commit no crimes. Maybe after his Martha’s Vineyard vacation, Obama can share his executive order providing backdoor amnesty to illegals.
UPDATE I: Iran turns US hikers into Hostages.
Is it 1979 all over again … a weak US Democrat President residing over a failed US economy and an Iranian regime politicizing the capture and detainment of Americans.
The politicized verdict once again underscores the Islamist regime’s twisted sense of “justice,” which is meted out against Iranians as well as foreigners to advance the interests of a ruthlessly brutal regime. The show trial of the hiker/hostages is one more slap in the face of the Obama Administration, whose eager rush to engage Tehran has produced no tangible results.
President Obama Wants to Negotiate with a 9-11 Truther? US Delegates Walk out of Ahmadinejad’s Stating Americans were Behind the 9/11 Terror Attacks
So President Barack Hussein Obama wants to negotiate with Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, a man who states that America was behind the 9-11 terrorist attacks from radical Islam, really?
How could any fool in the MSM try and analyze the comments of a crazy man?
Yesterday at the UN, the US delegation walked out on Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad’s speech as he went on with his crazy rant that the United States government was behind the 9-11 radical Islamic terrorist attacks that killed nearly 3000 innocent people. The same man who President Obama wants to have negotiations with over nuclear armaments. The same man who has said he wants to see Israel wiped off the map. Ahmadinejad also suggested that there needs to be an independent commission to examine the attacks. Why do we give these nuts any credibility?
Don’t worry Israel, you are in no immediate danger, you have one year before nuclear annihilation … Great news Israel, Iran won’t have nukes for at least eight more Obama vacations and 60 more rounds of golf.
Oh this is reassuring, Obama Administration tells Israel that Iran won’t have nukes for at least one year. Are we really supposed to take comfort in such a prediction from this Administration? The same one that stated the stimulus plan would keep unemployment at 8% and Obamacare would lower health care costs and reduce the federal deficit. All of which were not true. What are we going to hear next from Obama in the prevention of Iran producing a nuclear bomb under the guise of power, that they have the right to like the Brits are saying?
“Remain calm, all is well …”
Iranian television showed live pictures of Iran’s nuclear chief Ali Akbar Salehi and his Russian counterpart watching a fuel rod assembly being prepared for insertion into the reactor at Bushehr.
“Despite all the pressures, sanctions and hardships imposed by Western nations, we are now witnessing the start-up of the largest symbol of Iran’s peaceful nuclear activities,” Mr Salehi told a news conference afterwards. He described the plant as “a symbol of Iranian resistance and patience”.
Obama blames Jewish suspicion on his middle name … is this clown serious? I guess it is a good thing his middle name is not “Adolf”.
Once again we are witness to a President, Barack Hussein Obama, who is LOST IN SMALLNESS. In an interview regarding Israel and Jewish relations and the issue of Iran in the Middle East Barack Obama said the following, “some of it may just be the fact that my middle name is Hussein, and that creates suspicion.” WHAT? Could Barack Obama possibly trivialize Jewish sentiment any more? Dear Mr. President, you middle name could have been “Smith” and with your policies and actions Israel would feel the same way.
During the interview Wednesday, when confronted with the anxiety that some Israelis feel toward him, Obama said that “some of it may just be the fact that my middle name is Hussein, and that creates suspicion.”
International Rock Star President Barack Obama Now Seen as Incompetent and a Rank Amateur by the World
Hey Europe and the International community, how’s that Barack Obama “Hopey, Changey” stuff working out for you? It appears about the same as it is for Americans. 2012 cannot get here fast enough.
From Mort Zuckerman of US News & World Report comes this revelation regarding the “Chosen One,” Barack Hussein Obama … ‘World Sees Obama as Incompetent and Amateur’. You mean they are finally just noticing now? Let this be a lesson to America and the World, hype does not make experience, a leader or a President. It was not to long ago that Europe was rooting for a Barack Obama victory … my how The One’s image has fallen.
The reviews of Obama’s performance have been disappointing. He has seemed uncomfortable in the role of leading other nations, and often seems to suggest there is nothing special about America’s role in the world. The global community was puzzled over the pictures of Obama bowing to some of the world’s leaders and surprised by his gratuitous criticisms of and apologies for America’s foreign policy under the previous administration of George W. Bush. One Middle East authority, Fouad Ajami, pointed out that Obama seems unaware that it is bad form and even a great moral lapse to speak ill of one’s own tribe while in the lands of others.
Barack Obama’s apology tour is hardly the show of American Presidential strength that Europe and out allies were looking for. So in the end, the World did prefer a “cowboy” after all, eh? As Newsbusters reminds us, from top to bottom, the Obama Administration are legislators, not leaders and they lack the competence for the positions they hold. It is no coincidence that Obama is “Lost in Smallness” and unable to lead … he never has, why would any one have thought he suddenly could on the grandest scale?
The end result is that a critical mass of influential people in world affairs who once held high hopes for the president have begun to wonder whether they misjudged the man. They are no longer dazzled by his rock star personality and there is a sense that there is something amateurish and even incompetent about how Obama is managing U.S. power. For example, Obama has asserted that America is not at war with the Muslim world. The problem is that parts of the Muslim world are at war with America and the West.
Profiles in Leadership … President Obama Skipped Mississippi Gulf Memorial Service to Attend Fundraiser for Barbara Boxer
Barack Hussein Obama, the (fill in the blank) ________ in Chief looks like he might need to kick his own “ASS”.
Talk about a lack of leadership and an I do not care attitude. Normally we refer to these Obama moments as “lost in smallness;” however, in this case he is not lost … he is AWOL!
Miss a fund raiser for a memorial service, are you crazy …next thing Americans will expect me to lay a wreath at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier at Arlington National Cemetary on Memorial Day.
More Barack Obama ”Change” you can believe in. We have been told that Obama’s on it and Obama thinks about the BP Gulf oil spill morning, noon and night. Barack Hussein Obama has had his people on the pol spill crisis since day one and Obama is in charge. The real question appears to be not if his daughters have asked him if he has plugged the hole daddy, but rather what fund raiser he has gone to, instead.
The saying is really true, the enemy of my enemy is my friend. Never has that been more evident that the Saudi’s and Israel. Such is the case with Saudi Arabia who has cleared the way to allow Israel to use it’s air space if necessary to attack Iran’s nuclear sites.
Saudi Arabia has conducted tests to stand down its air defences to enable Israeli jets to make a bombing raid on Iran’s nuclear facilities, The Times can reveal.
In the week that the UN Security Council imposed a new round of sanctions on Tehran, defence sources in the Gulf say that Riyadh has agreed to allow Israel to use a narrow corridor of its airspace in the north of the country to shorten the distance for a bombing run on Iran.
To ensure the Israeli bombers pass unmolested, Riyadh has carried out tests to make certain its own jets are not scrambled and missile defence systems not activated. Once the Israelis are through, the kingdom’s air defences will return to full alert.
“The Saudis have given their permission for the Israelis to pass over and they will look the other way,” said a US defence source in the area. “They have already done tests to make sure their own jets aren’t scrambled and no one gets shot down. This has all been done with the agreement of the [US] State Department.”
Weasel Zippers asks the all important question, “… but how will they get around the Anti-Semite in Chief?” Because we all know that Iran only uses it’s nuclear capabilities for energy production and the Obama Administration is only interested in further weak UN sanctions against Iran that furthers to enable them as Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad laughs himself silly as he called the sanctions “worthless” and said they belonged “in a trash bin.”
