    Yes because we all know if anyone other than Obama was in office we would be doing some badass **** right now
    What specifically are these unique sanctions that Obama masterminded that have never been used before?

    Are you saying if the US was using "manned" recon planes Iran would not have fired (reacted) at the plane in international waters?

    Seems to me, Iran is trying to provoke a response (military) from the US.

    Especially since the election is over and Obama has more flexibility.

    whatever they were irans currency is worth, what, 10% of what it was before the sanctions? unfortunately china is probably supplying them with US dollars, since they have truckloads of them in storage.

    Another incident with Iran involving live fire and drones.
    Hopefully this is the last of few incidents that occurs. [/FONT][/COLOR]
    I can't say I blame them. A drone is for spying or killing people.I don't want those things in or anywhere near my country,so I can imagine how Iran feels regarding these drones.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Perhaps it is the fact that we have been using unmanned drones to kill people in countries we do not control and are not at war with for the last several months. Perhaps a drone being 16 miles away from Iran's borders, given their current uses, was a threat they did not want to take lightly. Perhaps they were sending a warning that a drone that isn't intended for surveillance can and will be targeted in the future. Perhaps it is Iran's way of saying they're quite willing to invest in battle with the U.S.
