Iran Mocks Pres. Obama and The U.S.


Well, this is humiliating.

TEHRAN – For the American government, the crash of the RQ-170 drone in Iran was an embarrassment. For the Iranian government, it was a propaganda victory.
……………..

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.

It gets worse.

The toys come with a transparent plastic stand emblazoned with a quotation from Ayatollah Khomeini, the founder of the Islamic Republic: “We will put America under our feet.”

I am thinking the “pretty please return our drone” that Pres. Obama asked of Iran didn’t work.
