Iranian company wants to send toy drone to Obama

An Iranian non-profit company says it will honor U.S. President Barack Obama's request that Iran return a drone that crashed there last year.

But instead of the actual drone, the company says it will send miniature toy versions. A lot of them.

"We plan to send a full squadron of 12 to the White House for President Obama as a present," said Reza Kioumarsi, a spokesman for the Aaye Art Group, a Tehran-based non-profit, non-governmental company that makes novelty items.

The company is trying to determine what Obama's favorite color is before sending the drones, which are 1/80th the size of the real drone, Kioumarsi said.

In December, Obama said the United States has asked Iran to return the highly classified RQ-170 Sentinel drone.

"We've asked for it back. We'll see how the Iranians respond," Obama said at the time.

This is probably not the response Obama was seeking.

    Maybe Obama should also bow to Ahmadinejad to increase the probability of getting back the real drone. If that doesn't work, maybe saying "pretty please!" and crossing his fingers will help the cause

    @ real deal, a whole hour and youve not added one profound thing, and i really thought you would at least attempt to. And @ hamsta, i dont think OBAMA seriously thought they would! It will take that country years to figure out how to make it work (tbc)

    By then the US will have obtained all the information it intended to get by allowing them access to it in the lst place.

    @ hamsta

    Why do you feel the the need to always attack people with the name calling ? If you want to discuss the issues it can be done in a civilized manner. The rest of us are able to do it. Why don't you give it a try.

    And Kandi, you are right. President Obama did a great job, considering what he had to work with. Give him some cooperation in his next four, and watch the good that comes out.
