It may not have been a deadly Predator equipped with a Hellfire missile eager to incinerate a Pashtun wedding party, but in our Brave New UAV World – also known as Obama’s Drone Wars – even a lowly ScanEagle, manufactured by a Boeing subsidiary, may be assured to steal the limelight.

So here’s the star of the show on Iranian TV after it was captured over the Persian Gulf. Geopolitical junkies fed up with the same old US generals regurgitating cliches on Fox or CNN will certainly feast on that ultra-retro “We will trample the US under our feet” banner, not to mention the quirky Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) production values in the PR front.
