The Persian Air-Express "Special"

The Christian Science Monitor [via Scott Peterson] reported today that "...Iran has unveiled its own copy of an American stealth drone it captured in late 2011, claiming to have cracked the 'secrets' of the bat-wing craft and added weapons capabilities..."

The report essentially says Iran has a stealth drone and aims to use it against its enemies, i.e., the U.S. and Israel. According to the report the drone has the "...'bombing capability to attack the US warships in any possible battle.' The story in Persian was headlined: 'America’s nightmare has become reality.'

The article by Peterson goes on to report that while U.S. officials claimed Iran was incapable of replicating a "captured" drone that crash landed in Iran a few years ago, nevertheless, Iranian mental giants were able to "reverse engineer" the captured drone and built one for themselves.

Of course, the report leaves out that you or I could have easily duplicated such a drone with a model airplane kit and a few materials picked out of the debris we might have in our tool shed or garage.  Granted, it might not look as sleek and shiny as the captured drone, but it would be as lethal, if we were so inclined to build it that way.

Of course, you or I might find other uses for that toy, the model airplane.  We might use it to mount a camera on it to take panoramic pictures of beautiful landscapes.  We might even use one to help us deliver pizzas to hungry customers.

And if we happened to be running a not-so-small country, and found one of these model airplanes that we could "reverse engineer" to develop one of our own, why, we could find all kinds of uses for this magnificent machine to help us do all kinds of things, like map our cities, towns and villages; deliver medical aid to remote villages; warn our remote towns and villages of impending severe weather conditions; use them for news or sports reporting.

That's what you or I would do.

Not Iran.  [nor your illustrious Commander in Chief]

You would think that they would rush to their public relations podium with news about how they would advance their country and their culture, and their standard of living with this brand new technological miracle that happened to land in their country by the grace of God.

No sir. Not Iran; not the little socio-paths, chomping at the bit, salivating, panting to mount a nuke on one of those portable remote-controlled little vessels.

They rushed up to that tele-prompter and said they were going to blow us to Kingdom Come.

Well isn't that special?

"We have plenty of laws.  The ones regarding TREASON and the IMMIGRATION LAWS are prime examples.  
What is needed is someone with what it takes to enforce them.
Why would anyone obey a new law when they don't enforce the existing ones."
