TEHRAN, Iran —

Iranian state radio says Tehran will give the United States a model of the American surveillance drone captured by the Islamic Republic.

The report Tuesday said the toy model of the RQ-170 Sentinel stealth drone will be sent to the White House in response to a formal request from Washington last month asking Iran to return the aircraft that went down over Iran in December.

The report says the models also will be sold on the Iranian marked for about 70,000 rials, or around $4.

It's a better "gift" than some of the ones Obama has given.

I’m beginning to think that the Iranian government doesn’t take Obama seriously.

Iran is humiliating America and the Messiah with its sense of humor.

Maybe Iran will stick a propellor on the drone like the models we used to put together as kids.

it is uncertain whether the mullahs will allow Achphlegmdinagad to play with glue...as he has the tendency to ‘huff’ it....so they may just return the model in the box.

I’m picturing him playing with it during Cabinet meetings and making (improper propeller) airplane noises.

Drones are not the American tech masterpiece, the NRO big birds are.

Drones are often used as a cover story for data gleaned by the NRO birds...IMO only.

The mistake they may be making is thinking that Bork (Obunga) is still in charge of the US military; near as I can tell, HIllary Clinton and Leon Panetta are running our military at present.

Sure.....and we should send it on a mounting with a couple scaled down reactor domes below it. The message should translate well in Farsi.

Look for the media to claim the Obammy team has sucessfully restarted our relationship with Iran. This “gift” is a good will gesture.

When the United States needs eyes and ears in critical places where no human can reach – be it over the most rugged terrain or through the most hostile territory – it turns to the National Reconnaissance Office (NRO).

I’d give Nutjob a model of a bunker buster.

Then yell “Incoming”.

"LITERALLY 5 MINUTES LATER the Iranians released the hostages?"

But, but, but...the story spun by the libs was that the Iranians did that to humiliate Carter.

Oh, that's right...nevermind. Carter had already "topped out" in the Humiliation Category.

I have some reciprocating gift recommendations. Of course, Obama would never take my advice.

I like this excerpt from the article....

The products made by Ayeh Art Group are not widely known in Tehran, but Kioumarsi said he was confident that the model drones would sell like hotcakes.

Because they're familiar with hotcakes, as we know it. Here's a traditional Iranian breakfast meal....

Kale Pache or Kaleh Pacheh is an Iranian traditional dish, made with a sheep's entire head and its hooves. In Iran it is usually consumed as a breakfast soup. It includes lamb's head (including brain), tongues, and hooves, and is seasoned with lemon and cinnamon. To prepare Kaleh Pacheh, the heads and feet of sheep are collected, mashed, cooked and treated as per the recipe.

Pretty funny actually!

If we had any brains, the drone would have hidden Trojan horse capability.

It could be set to go boom when a certain high ranking Iranian leader was next to it gloating about their triumph.
