Well. Was the drone in Iranian air space or international air space? Apparently the answer depends on whether you accept the Iranian claims to some minor islands. The so-called international community, I gather, does not recognize the Iranian claim. Whatever we do now will be watched closely in Beijing. Meanwhile Jimmy Carter, who failed utterly (and infuriatingly) to respond to a much greater provocation at a much more auspicious time, is still clinging to life. I wonder whether he is second guessing his decisions from that time? Somehow I don't think so.
