    Re: Iran Fired On U.S. Drone In International Airspace: Pentagon

    I understand post-election emotions are running high, but tying this to the President or extrapolating a grand narrative on US positional standing in the Middle East off of this incident is silly. This was likely an IRGC patrol that exceeded its engagement authority which is usually more aggressive than other formations, or part of standing instructions to show a strong face to all potential surveillance fliers (especially drones) near Iranian airspace and they went too far. I doubt this was a premeditated action, it would require a remarkable level of cohesion and command control over something so minor and for so little purpose.

    Disarm unilaterally.

    And I did give one serious action he not only should make, but must make if he wants any credibility with those kooks.

    You've got to quit watching Fox. It's starting to severely distort reality for you. The election is over. You lost. Deal with it.

    Disarm them unilaterally? And do you mean when you said he should sit down with them?

    The caption was cut off. It read: Obama practicing his comely over the shoulder look.
    Gibbs needs to smack him on the back of the head.
