Obama is really blowing it with this lost drone issue.

He politely asked the Iranians to give the drone back.
How stupid does that make him look?
Did he really think he had a chance in hell of getting it back?
It should have been JDAMed into smithereens days ago.
This is Iran we are dealing with, not Mexico.
Is he channeling Jimmy Carter?

Re: Obama is really blowing it with this lost drone issue.

I'm baffled. Drone goes down and you think about sending in a recovery team then decide against it. Why? possibly too big to get out? Ok. easy enough send in another drone and or drop a missle/bomb on the first. Don't leave them with the drone to study it. HELLO. idiots.

Now he's going to "ask nicely". I hope he said "pretty please" also.

We invade a hostile nations air space with a drone and they are going to "willingly" hand said drone back over to the country breaking their rules?

This should make things a bit more heated in that region.

No big deal. If they choose to try then I'm sure there are a few US Subs that could help the Iranian Navy get to see the bottom a little closer.

I hope to heck the US Navy decides to just drive on through like bulls in a china shop. "Excuse us... coming through... Pardon us."

Re: Obama is really blowing it with this lost drone issue.

Would we give another nation's spy drone back if it were doing missions over our country? Hell no, so not sure why he's even asking for it back.

Re: Obama is really blowing it with this lost drone issue.

Right, it makes him look stupid.
I wonder if his request was warranted so we can say that we exhausted all diplomatic solutions before we did something more drastic.
I'm not sure how to read him.
He did right with the Bin laden raid but he looks like a buffoon now.

Agreed - basically. If it was a nation we wished to remain on good terms with, we would likely return it (say Mexico or Canada) after making a big stink and thoroughly examining it. China, probably not, but maybe depending on the circumstances.

Even if credible evidence existed that it was truly an accidental incursion, the US would strip down and delay return of the property.

I am just surprised there is no "Auto-destruct" or "auto disable" (don't want it accidentally exploding near civilians) which would, essentially, fry the internal workings.

Well, I would hope we don't do anything "drastic" over a damn drone. It's not worth any American or Iranian lives.

Not sure what any one expected of him. He's stuck with the "oops, it malfunctioned, we weren't really sppying on you." I can't see him saying "Damn right we were spying on you. F' international law - We got 5 more drones over Tehran right now. Hell, I know when and where you took your last dump dumbass". At the same time, he is the same guy who sent the Delta team in to fight a firefight on a so-called ally's territory w/out their consent.

Just a big egg on your face moment with no good resolution.

How smart could the Damn Drone be? Obviously, we were unable to teach the damn thing to blow itself up....

Really, a simple bit of housebreaking and we wouldn't have this problem:

"Sit Drone, Sit! Now ... Play Dead!" <BOOM>
