Walk softly and carry a big stick.
U.S. officials have confirmed that Iran has recovered an American top secret RQ-170 drone. The drone reportedly went down near Kashmar in northeastern Iran about 120 miles from the Afghanistan border after U.S. remote pilots lost control of the unmanned state-of-the-art vehicle.
Contrary to early Iranian claims that they had shot down the drone, televised images show the vehicle to be essentially intact, which means the Iranians and their Russian and Chinese friends now have one of our most technologically advanced reconnaissance aircraft. A U.S. military official said this is a huge loss and makes the top-secret helicopter tail lost during the Usama bin Laden raid in Pakistan look like a pittance, according to Fox News.
In a televised ceremony displaying the captured drone, Gen. Amir Ali Hajizadeh, head of the Iranian Revolutionary Guards aerospace program, said the drone was ambushed using technical interference in order not to damage the aircraft, according to a Wall Street Journal report. A banner underneath the drone carried the taunting phrase, America cant do a damn thing; a favorite quote of Islamic revolutionary leader Ayatollah Khomeini.
Jennifer Griffin of Fox News exposes evidence that Barack Obama wimped-out when faced with a decision to either protect American intelligence and national security or upset the Iranians.
With early knowledge that the aircraft had likely remained intact, the senior U.S. official also told Fox News that President Obama was presented with three separate options for retrieving or destroying the drone. The president ultimately decided not to proceed with any of the plans because it could have been seen as an act of war, the official told Fox News.
Among the options the U.S. considered were sending in a special-ops team to retrieve the drone; sending in a team to blow up the aircraft; and launching an airstrike to destroy it.
Somebody tell the President that the Iranians already are at war with the U.S. regardless of this incident. This is a regime sworn to destroy America, the infidel Satanic regime.
Iran is led by murderous nuke-obsessed mullahs and a Holocaust denying mad man who delivers Hitleresque rants inciting crowds with death to America and death to Israel. As Pam Geller of Atlas Shrugs.com accurately says, Iran sees everything as an act of war.
Blowing up a downed drone would have changed nothing.
This week in Osawatomie, Kansas the President likened himself to Teddy Roosevelt. Whatever similarities there might be, we doubt Teddy Walk-softly-but-carry-a-big-stick Roosevelt would have been overly concerned about displeasing the mullahs in Tehran. Nor for that matter would have FDR, the other President Roosevelt that Obama so likes to emulate or, Truman, Kennedy, Reagan, Bush 41, Bush 43, or even Bill Clinton.
The question of protecting Americas national security or ruffling the feathers of a self-declared adversary is no question at all except for Barack Obama.
And I have some ideas on what he can do with it, too.
“Mr President Has A Little Stick”
One of those jokes that just write themselves...
Yeah, shove it were the Sun doesn’t shine
First, there is no war. War, the concept of war, was abolished in the 70’s with the defeat in Vietnam. Since war no longer exists, it is not possible to take actions of a warlike nature. The stick is not little, there is no stick at all. The existence of a stick, should there actually be one, is denied.
Peace at any cost is the objective. The objective of the objective is to preserve the ideology of there is no more war. The need for peace and harmony will overcome this trivial event and prevail.

It’s really getting bad when they start using Bubba as a measure of your lack of ‘nads......
Take a number.
There's a couple hundred friggin windmills going up near here, and I know where I'd like to see everyone of them stuffed!
I don’t know, calling his stick little seems a little racist to me. /s/
Not to be anal-retentive, but isn’t the correct expression “Speak softly and carry a big stick”?
Little stick - Big Schtick
Democrats = Incompetence
Democrats = Incompetence
Democrats = Incompetence

Who here does NOT think this was intentional?
And now the pRESIDENT wants to ease the sanctions on Iran?
Somewhere, there is a bridge waiting to be sold... again!
That image character looks more like Whore Aldo Rivera than O-Bozo.
They may call my boy a Wee Wee ... but you gotta admit ... the Idiot can lay'em this big ... every time he uses his pea brain to try and make an executive decision.*
* Great pic ... should refer to a body function rather than a body part, however, IMHO.
