    Seems to me, Iran is trying to provoke a response (military) from the US.
    I'm saying even though Obama zombies and pro-drone folks will say drones are spectacular for our immediate interests, they will create long term problems.

    Here is one for ya... worldwide intel about Iraq was wrong; but Saddam played it as if he had WMD and Blix even believed it and testified he was playing games.... NOW...

    Do you know how and when we found out about Iran's nuke program, and what was won on the nuke front from taking on Iraq?

    Didn't Biden say that Obama would be tested? Oh crap that was the first 4 years. Maybe he was off a bit is all.

    Obama will do everything in his power to avoid war with Iran, period. He doesn't want that stain on his legacy of Obamacare, killing OBL, and then war with the ME. Sorry couldn't come up with anything else Obama has done so I threw in Obamacare to help out, although disclaimer, it's not exactly a great thing, and OBL was a no brainer call my dog could have barked that one out.

    Invite I'minajihad to the White House... then go overseas and bad mouth America as Dems seem to do. Admit... it is America's fault and we will do better. Obama should even endorse their Gay Rights policy. Perhaps Michelle can do something on the nutrition front. Obama could invite I'minajihad over to do March Madness picks. Lots of options.

    If they behave we can assist them with their peaceful program... so long as they share their energy production with Israel. (They want to... all in one pop!)

    So what would be strong to you then? If Bush was weak after 9/11, what you have proposed he do? Nuke every country that didn't denounce the attack?

    So international law means nothing to Iran?

    "An Iranian attack aircraft fired at least twice at an unarmed U.S. drone conducting routine surveillance in international airspace over the Persian Gulf, " from the OP link.

    It was an recon unarmed drone.
