"We have asked for it back." Obama told reporters. "We'll see how the Iranians respond."
Apparently, the President's no-nonsense approach, and his stern demeanor, had the Iranians shaking in their boots.
An Iranian company announced Tuesday that it will send President Obama a toy replica of the drone, 1/80th the size of the real thing. Toy copies of the drone, bearing the inscription "We will trample the U.S," will be sold in Iranian stores for 4 or 5 dollars.
According to one report, a group of Iranian youths decided to produce and begin selling the toy.
No doubt the White House will respond in kind with a heartfelt 'Thank You' letter.
The letter, I assume, will read as follows:
The President has received your gift and is deeply appreciative of this most gracious and benevolent gesture.
Mr. Obama had requested the return of the drone, but you went one better and exceeded all expectations with this wonderful gift. Thank you.
Enclosed you will find an assortment of Commemorative Baby Dolls of Mr. Obama that captures the "Yes, We Can" spirit of our 44th President. It is a gift from the President to you and to your beneficent regime.
Wishing you and the regime continued success.
The White House.
