Iran will reverse-engineer the US drone it captured on December 4, Iran's Press TV quoted a senior Iranian official as saying Sunday.

Parviz Sorouri, member of the Majlis Committee on National Security and Foreign Policy, said that his country will "mass produce" the drones in the near future. He also said that the Iranian version would be "of higher quality" than the original RQ-170 Sentinel, according to the Press TV report.

Iran mass produce the thing, not a chance. They don’t have the materials science and electronics industry to do the job. On the other hand they can sell in to China and they will knock them out by the millions.

Iran could never have accomplished this without a sympathetic ally infiltrating our government.

Mass production.

You mean just like they mass produce cars, or refined oil?

Surely they must make something besides trouble...or are all those "students" getting degrees in Underwater Basket Weaving like the Occupunks?

Yeah, right. Next, let’s send ‘em an armed nuclear missile. If they can reverse engineer that before it detonates, more power to ‘em.

We might just as well get used to it. There are enough idiot droids in the voting masses to re-elect this monster in 2012 and possibly many years after that.

I think we are finished as a nation.

Reagan would never have toleraated this.

All that headline screams to me is “We are too backwards and stupid to have ever designed something so advanced ourselves.”

Perhaps there is a backdoor mechanism to this gift which keeps on giving . . .think stuxnet I & II. Did the Iranians ever figure out how they got infected with the first one?

Then we need to find out where it is and drop a bomb on the facility holding it.

Translation: We haven’t got a F-ing clue how this thing works and the only thing we can mass produce is piles of goat crap.

You're right there's always a silver lining - if we look hard enough.

considering months ago that they had the ability to jam the frequencies of our drones and control them is this any big surprise?

Hope they have enough wing tape.

Anybody can mass produce a drone. Getting them to fly is the tough part. How do you say “ Knock yerself out!” in Farsi?
