    Much like North Korean border guards, Iranian militia have a habit of crossing the border. A few years ago they even captured an Iraqi oil facility close to the border and were subsequently expelled by the Iraqi military. BBC News - Iran troops 'seize Iraq oil well'

    At any rate, entering Iran from the Turkish side is much easier and far less risky than the Iraq/Iran border area. The CIA is certainly aware of this.

    Ah... that person I believed raped and killed someone.... you're honestly trying to compare that to this? Rights denied or no rights denied.

    This sentence was a politically motivated jab at Washington and nothing more.

    These people were not spying, its bull**** and the Iranians are doing it to piss off the US, nothing more.

    We know that about the Iranian regime for some time now. Best to avoid the country, and its border.

    Where there is smoke there is fire, or we could say if you play you will pay. Imagine me saying to a friend in a combat zone or hostile territory, lets go for a nice long walk on the front.

    Wait wut? really? Only on DP can we find this kind of... logic.
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    Irrelevant. What a person's crime is does not give his accusers ground to deny him rights. If it does then Iran is perfectly within the accepted standard for denying people rights.
    ... you're honestly trying to compare that to this? Rights denied or no rights denied.
    Sure.

    Opinion.

    It's cute to know your opinion on the matter.

    Re: American hikers get sentenced to 8 years.

    What kind of fool do you have to be to plan your hiking trip in an extreme fundamentalist muslim state? I assume they were NOT spies...so its likely they will serve 8 years for being stupid.

    As for the moronic comments comparing the execution of a rapist/murderer in Texas to this situation...yes...Im SURE that the Iranian judicial system...the one that kills people for being gay (wait...WOULD kill people for being gay...they dont have homosexuals in Iran-they hung those young folk for some completely unrelated thing...like...I think it wa s atraffic incident)...Im sure that were it not for the Texas situation they would have been kind and benevolent towards these hikers-even thought they were arrested and have been held long before the execution in Texas. What kind of a twisted moron would use THIS tragic siutuation to further their own idiotic ideology?

    Logic? Logical would be a border guard applicant having a clue as to the consequences of not following international law. Do you have any of that logic?
