It is incredible to read - I had to rub my eyes to make sure I was reading this correctly- that the US has officially asked (http://news.yahoo.com/blogs/envoy/obama-asked-iran-us-drone-back-193035747.html and http://news.yahoo.com/photos/fact-file-rq-170-unmanned-aerial-vehicle-irans-photo-155117944.html) Iran to return the US drone Iran captured while it was flying in a spy mission over its territory (Dec 2011).
If Iran - God forbid!- had a drone spying over any part of the US territory (including Israel) we would declare war and attack Iran right away. When we spy on Iran we ask them to return the spying equipment? How does this work? Are we blind?
Our government needs to realize that the risks associated with spying on other countries are not 0. Hence, accept the loss of the drone and move on.
