American drone in Iran

http://www.cnn.com/2011/12/13/world/meast/iran-spy-plane/index.html?npt=NP1

This article is about an American drone that was in skied over Iran. The un-piloted drone was said to be taken down by the Iran government, with no plans of return. The Iran government has said that their country will determine what they are going to do with this vehicle. They have stated,

"The North Americans at best have decided to give us this spy plane," Ahmadinejad said. "In the unpiloted planes, we have had many advances, much progress and now we have this spy plane."

This quote by the Iranian president shows that they are far more worried about advancing in the filed, rather then returning the aircraft. It is said by the Iranian government also that rather them return it, America owes Iran an apology for such intrusion. This not only boasts about having the vehicle, but also to show that they are not scared.

The quote states, "The U.S. should know that what it did regarding violation of our air space can put international peace and security in danger," he said. "The U.S. should take responsibility for the consequences of the measure."

It is important that this matter be taken seriously by the US. This information given to them will help them not only have their information about un-piloted aircrafts, but they can add to the information they already have on it. It gives them the upper hand in that area and that is never a good thing when it comes to war.
