    Of course there is a correlation. You keep going back to the facts of the case as if they mattered at all. The international legal framework has to be followed by all. If it isn't then countries who don't follow it, have no right to deny that others do. Do you not understand that yet? Or are you frothing so much you can't understand the simple inconsistency in your argument? How typical of VanceMack. Get utterly destroyed in an argument and then proceed to call everyone stupid. You sound like my daughter when she doesn't get Dora.
    I only point out the blatantly stupid arguments when people make them. I know...I know...it seems like I point out a LOT of your blatantly stupid arguments. There is an alternative...stop making blatantly stupid arguments. You equate the US judicial system with Iran. Stupid beyond words. You equate 3 lost hikers with a rapist/murderer. Stupid beyond words. You throw out an anti-death penalty argument in a thread involving the justice system of an extremist fundamentalist muslim country. Yes...I know you can see the pattern. If your daughter doesnt 'get' Dora, maybe its genetic.

    It's difficult to have much sympathy for the terminally stupid. I don't want to sound harsh, but damn! Who the hell thinks it's a swell idea to go hiking along the border in a war zone without a map, a compass or, apparently, a lick of common sense.

    Considering that they were found guilty of spying, they're damned lucky they didn't get the death penalty.

    I think these hikers got what they deserved. They knowingly went hiking near or the border of a country that is hostile to Americans. Thats like gay rights advocacy going to hard core muslim middle eastern country to protest for gay rights and then wondering why the next day they are about to be beheaded. When Americans do retarded **** like that we should let them rot in that country. I do not care if they are spies or just hikers as they claim to be.

    Not sure that what happened in Texas is a similar situation seeing how Iran is hostile to Americans and Texas gave the murderer a fair trial.Those people wouldn't have got a fair trial regardless if Texas caved to globalist pieces of **** or not.

    fyi Re: American hikers get sentenced to 8 years.

    Do you hear yourself talking? How is it stupid to go hiking anywhere, we are supposed to be free. Now at the moment everybody is at war or arguing over nothing. This world has gone to crap. You can tell by what u said, by the harsh sentence and finally by politics. Yet I still say GOD bless your sweet little heart.

ANYONE stupid enough to go hiking along the border of a country like Iran gets exactly what they deserve. I have no doubt they're not spies and that the Iranian military crossed over into Iraq to cease them. However, they were stupid enough to go hiking in that area, and now they have to pay the price for that.

    Re: American hikers get sentenced to 8 years.

    i kind of doubt they were "government spies". probably a couple young dumb asses trying to make
    a name for theirselves in the world of liberal journalism and thought crossing the iranian border and
    getting an "exclusive" on how friendly the people were and what a great place it was would definitely
    get them a job at msnbc.
    they took the chance, they paid the price. sometimes $h!t just don't work out the way we want it to.

    Lets forget for a second the obvious danger of Iraq being war zone and please tell us how smart it is go hiking on the border or near the border of a country that is hostile to Americans? Please explain the intelligence in that. If a black man in the 1950s knowingly went a KKK meeting out in the woods in the dark all by himself, most people would say that is beyond stupid. If Perez Hilton went to Mecca where a bunch of hard core Muslims are all by himself without any security most people would say that is beyond stupid. If a conservative all by him self went to counter a pro-abortion rally in San Fransisco most people would say that is beyond stupid. If Michael Richards went into a black neighborhood all by himself and shouted nigger a few times most people would say that is beyond stupidity.

    How is it stupid to go hiking anywhere,we are supposed to be free.
    This is where you are devoid of any reality. We are not free to go traveling where ever the hell we want. We can not trespass into other people's property and other countries.


    Now at the moment everybody is at war or arguing over nothing. This world has gone to crap. You can tell by what u said, by the harsh sentence and finally by politics. Yet I still say GOD bless your sweet little heart.
    I bet that because of that harsh sentence no more quote and quote hikers or dumb asses will ever go hiking on or near the border of a country that is hostile towards Americans.
