I will interpret for you:
(CNN) — Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said Tuesday that his country has “been able to control” the U.S. drone that Iran claims it recently brought down, Venezuelan state TV reported.
They have figured out how to turn it on.
“There are people here who have been able to control this spy plane,” Ahmadinejad told VTV. “Those who have been in control of this spy plane surely will analyze the plane’s system. Furthermore, the systems of Iran are so advanced also, like the system of this plane.”
This is the most complicated thing they have ever seen. It is blowing their collective mind.
Ahmadinejad did not elaborate or specify what precisely he meant when he referred to people “who have been able to control” the drone. He spoke in Farsi, which VTV translated into Spanish. The Farsi portion of the interview was not audible.
President Barack Obama said Monday that the United States has asked Iran to return the drone aircraft that Iran claims it recently brought down in Iranian territory.
“We’ve asked for it back. We’ll see how the Iranians respond,” Obama said.
Our president is a huge pussy.
Will Iran share stealth tech with China? Ahmadinejad’s comments to VTV seemed to suggest that Iran did not plan to return the aircraft.
“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.”
Good luck with that.
More importantly, the Iranians should be very cautious about trying to steal technology they aren’t experienced with. A friend of mine once told me a story about a certain Soviet country that stole a certain pipeline pressure regulator from the U.S. during a certain Cold War.
What this country didn’t know was that the U.S. was very much aware of Soviet thievery, and intentionally planted a flawed plan, which the Soviets, in copying, then applied to their entire system.
I would love nothing less than for Iran to mass produce drones which the U.S. has the ability to seize control of at will. Let the tech games begin.If you enjoy the content at iBankCoin, please follow us on Twitter
