After tough sanctions imposed by the United States and the West, Iran has given into the demands of President Obama, well some demands.
Iran is returning the RQ-170 drone that was hacked back in December of last year.
Their are some differences though: it's pink, it's about one eightieth the original size and being marketed as a toy in Iran.
According to some reports the toys have already hit selves In Tehran and carry a $4 price tag. The display of silliness has many US officials irate at the charade, but no need to get upset.
President Obama will be receiving his very own custo

All this does is highlight the childish mentality of the person who dreamed up the idea. Youknowwho. He's cruisin' for a bruisin' I'm afraid.
“We wanted for Mr. Obama himself to have these toys and know that Iranians don't leave anyone's requests unanswered. We made the 'RQ' in pink as it is Mr. Obama's favorite color and we will send it to him via the Swiss embassy," said Seyyed Saeed Hassan-pour, head of the cultural department of the Aaye Company, to Reuters.
Khazaee went on to say the “American RQ-170 unmanned spy plane, bearing a specific serial number, violated Iran’s airspace.” He added Iran “strongly protests such hostile and aggressive moves and warns about harmful consequences of the repetition of such actions.”
Iran's ambassador demanded a US apology for the incident, but has yet to receive it.So Iran has decided to take matters into their own hands.
"We decided to show that we can deal with this issue in a very friendly and peaceful manner and put it in the playful hands of the children of Iran to pursue a 'soft war' with Mr. Obama and the US. This was the aim of producing this aircraft," Hassan-pour concluded.

Research by the Bureau has found that "since Obama took office three years ago, between 282 and 535 civilians have been credibly reported as killed including more than 60 children. A three month investigation including eye witness reports has found evidence that at least 50 civilians were killed in follow-up strikes when they had gone to help victims. More than 20 civilians have also been attacked in deliberate strikes on funerals and mourners."reply to post by karen61057
