Iran Agrees to Return the U.S. Stealth Drone in Toy Form
Iranians won't return the advanced RQ-170 Sentinel drone downed in their country late last year but they will give the White House a toy replica.
On Tuesday, Iranian Radio Payam reported that a local company is manufacturing a toy version of the stealth drone one eightieth of its size that will be shipped to the White House. News of the toy brinkmanship was first reported outside Iran by Reuters' Mitrak Amiri, who happened to be reporting on a ban on Barbie dolls by the state's morality police (children's toys are a hot topic in Iran right now). The report says the miniature drone will be sold in a "variety of colours." According to Trend, a news site in neighboring Azerbaijan, the toy will be 30x14 cm bearing the inscription "We will trample the U.S."
