      Basically, in this video, Obama is "demanding of" Iran to "give back" the spy drone(s) (military aircrafts).

      A drone is a drone, the only thing unique about ours is we have the satellite control, anyone could use a drone if they were close enough to their target. Far as I know the Iranians have no satellites so that drone does them no good, maybe the Russians may benefit from it but they are always one step behind us in technology. Also they haven't the money to use something so advanced. It's like finding a brand new pair of shoes someone lost and they're two sizes too big for your own feet. Who's to say that drone wasn't purposely dropped there to listen or what ever. The Russians recently sold one of the aircraft carriers they were building but never finished due to lack of money, China bought it, but not to finish, they want to use it as a blueprint to build their own fleet. As of now China has no Carrier squadrons or even an aircraft for carrier operations. It took over a half a century to learn carrier operations and the British were the first to use carriers, they were also the smart ones in WWII using armored decks, had we used them the USS Yorktown would probably be a floating museum now. The catapult systems were designed and invented by the Brits, maybe the Chinese bought from the wrong people ;)

      But, Iran could or can use it's information against America or the US & that's why Obama is asking for them back, no?

      The only sensitive thing today is our satellite technology, there is nothing in that drone that another country with decent electronic engineers couldn't build or design themselves, ours is controlled from across the globe via satellite. I'm sure there are things you wouldn't want for them to get but nothing that would do any severe harm, by the time they use the technology hopefully you're into new designs and who's to say some safe guards haven't been built into the control. Back in the day of special electronics say for instance satellite TV decoders, the hackers would take one of those decoder chips and acid the top of the chip to gain access to the micro circuitry so it could be analyzed, a very special process but it was done and for a while they sold a few black marketed devices , then the next generations came with volatile codes that could be changed and that stopped that hacking, but like everything today nothing is fool proof if it involves software and computers. That drone most likely suffered a failure of some sort and was not guided down by Iranians, it has some redundancy built into it and had it been in a place like Afghanistan there is a possibility it could have been retrieved, it most
      likely landed itself from it's own program after something failed in the control. Trust me the Iranians are not that smart, a mere 30 years ago most of them had never even ridden in a motorized vehicle. Everything they have that is technical has been purchased from other vendors and countries. Their Air Force and Navy and Army were all trained in the 70's by the US and supplied by the US, most were killed in their revolution. They fought Iraq for 8 years and finally gave up because they lost so many men, in the millions !! This nuclear threat is a very serious issue much more so than a silly drone, I'm sure they have Russian technicians with them doing the teaching and building. If you happen to be suicidal and not care about living then you are the worst enemy anyone could have and you become expendable, unless your adversary is stupid , much like the one we now have in Washington.

      One comment I found particularly lulzy on the net by a fanatic Muslim guy. (The comment reply to my comment on the clip, not the video itself). Here's a short excerpt of it for you, you can reply to it if you want :


      "Damascus will be destroyed in a day in the end times - Isaiah 17. The end times come after the Bible reaches every "nation" (bloodline) - NOW (Matthew 24:14).

      What will happen when Syria is attacked by the West? Syria and her allies will attack Israel. Israel will nuke Damascus as prophesized by God. "

      Nothing is said about Nukes, only that Damascus will be a city of ruins or in a heap, it's already a heap but the time equation is another story, it could still be hundreds of years in the future. One thing is for sure, we have a complete idiot in charge over here, he has done more harm to our economy than all the presidents combined, he is only governing for the idiots or mullets that vote for him, not the country as a whole. They are intent on taking over our country with a one party control and it will get all of them killed for trying. Just because we have a two party system does not mean there aren't equal independents who are also fed up with all the felonious activities. This clown is the most inept dumb uneducated nobody to ever sleep in the white house. He becomes more hated by the day and losing even the idiots that voted for him, they were duped and lied to just like everyone else, they now see this. The only ones left are the uneducated freeloaders who would vote for anyone who gave them a free telephone or food or housing. We have millions like that and soon they will all be cut loose from the freebies. The economy drives a nation, when there is no money to continue the handouts they either go to work or move under a bridge, eat out of a garbage can! I don't think there will be a strike on Syria, not approved by congress, anyone voting yes is going to be voted out of office in 2014, they know it! Over 80 per cent of America is not for a strike. I'm sure the very first thing that would happen is Israel will be attacked even if on a small scale. Israel will not mess around with those people and the Iranians will also be on the receiving end, as they should be since they are the ones instigating all this unrest in the mid east. The Saudis will do nothing until their own safety is at risk only then they would actually fight back. Iran can't win a war with any Mid east country, they fought 8 years with Iraq and finally had to throw in the towel or completely go under. The Iranians do one thing which is die well, stupid people when it comes to fighting a war, they know nothing about facing a well armed modern force, in 8 years of war with Iraq they penetrated Iraqi air space 2 times. I don't think they know what awaits them if they get too cocky.
