-- new reports from the Pentagon today confirming that a run shot down a US drone over international waters just one week ago this coinciding.
We both previously announced.
Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has wasted know -- time.
Lashing out against the US causing calling our presidential election quote.
A battleground for capitalists.
Shooting met by that I -- was mostly insult but I don't don't really get how that since like -- -- -- -- thing anyway.
Now there are the elections are over what does it mean for our foreign policy with a rare -- me now is Fox News.
Thanks for coming back on the show.
I have a lot of questions about this let's let's start with that.
You're shooting at our drone.
Does that that they have better intelligence about.
We -- we yard what we're doing and I don't know does that does that concern you.
Basically let me understand that the Iranian military and intelligence out of following our moves inside the area.
In the gulf.
You know used to be in Iraq before they were spying on our.
Activities but across the Persian gulf.
And this shooting down of a drone is a message of -- -- -- intimidation.
Of the Obama -- because the Iranian leadership knows that the next step.
Of this renewed administration.
Should try to sit down with them more with a third body and -- to negotiate so there weren't positioned themselves those -- a stronger position.
So do you think that now -- -- that's what they we had heard before the election the president was ready to sit down and have one on one negotiations.
Which stockman -- -- -- do you see that going forward now.
Absolutely this is not secret.
Academics and intellectuals close -- the administration spokespersons.
Of the administration for many years have said that we gonna put some pressure.
-- Iranian regime but in the direction of inviting them to either comply.
Or sit down with us -- with a third body.
And then try to negotiate a diplomatic solution for the problem to problem -- is that.
The Obama administration's strategy over the past four years was when not -- -- -- military would not get a popular with the Iranian opposition.
We're gonna put sanctions we're not -- increase too much these sanctions hoping that the Iranian leadership is gonna come towards us and we saw over the past four years they did not.
So for the next four years we need to do even need to change the strategy or is going to be the same results.
If we sit down at a table Connecticut thing I mean -- -- -- could possibly be good things coming out of talks.
There's always put things coming out of box -- the intention on the other side is to basically do it concession.
The Iranian regime Iranian government have been sitting down with so many representatives of the United Nations of Russia.
Of so many.
Representative of the international community and yet it did not happen.
It has first default happening inside the Iran leadership they have to say okay on these conditions we are ready to come and negotiate they have not done so.
Yeah so in an effort to save their hard currency the same time maybe this is evidence that the sanctions are working they're banning the import.
Of 75 different goods they called -- luxury goods and they include toilet paper.
What does this tell you.
Look there is always the black market on the side.
They -- -- -- to these measures tried to them commend them on the other hand Iranians were used black market in the regime knows that.
The -- were putting Minnesota our goods.
But unfortunately venerable new targeting the civil society that's why you see demonstration from time -- -- and Iran you have two economies.
The country's economy and the -- economy we need to tighten the sanctions on the regime to come with -- again.
The rock bottom line on how invested we need to be an all this because we keep hearing now.
You know with the evolution of technology here in the US that are -- natural gas production -- fuel production.
Is rising and rising and -- maybe it is it possible this isn't as much our problem as it used to being.
Look for many many years we were driving our you know industry and -- -- infrastructure to produce more.
But even if what we get from the -- east is small.
Not getting it is gonna create a crisis is gonna -- presence in the world economy world market and that would have an impact on us and the Iranians most sorry.
-- parents thank you so much for joining us.
Think -- Robin Munis.
