    Forget about it. Montecresto's anti Americanism is on the same level of hilarity as RDS's.

    What are you 17-18? You're young and your face is round yet, you may not always be so patronizing.

    Relax, it's no secret. You adore the Ayatollah's.

    The closed and secret "trial" of US journalist Jason Rezaian will resume on Monday. Mr. Rezaian, who faces 20 years if convicted, is being tried by a judge known in Iran as the "judge of death" for his harsh sentences.

    If he's guilty of his charges, he's going to wish he wasn't being tried in Iran. If he's not, then the U.S. state Department needs to intervene.

    You should take it as a concession. The wrong being committed is so staggeringly blatant that Monty can't bring himself to even address it directly.

    Look, governments charge individuals with espionage, we have no way of knowing if the charges are ever legitimate or not. I suppose it's your position that the American now being tried in Iran is innocent of his charges. He may and may not be, how would you know. Governments do in fact spy on each other.

    This kind of "justice" is one of the few things that really makes me want us to war with the Middle East. Good people are suffering terribly under horrific regimes. We should rescue Raif Badawi and try the leaders of these nations, especially the Saudi royal family, for crimes against humanity. We won't do this, and it would be incredibly costly and impractical, but it's a nice a dream.

    And we'll never know because the trial is closed and secretive.

    But you see nothing wrong with this, just like you see nothing shady with Iran refusing IAEA inspections of suspected nuclear-military facilities.

    That's not what I said. I said that we've had our own military tribunals that aren't open to public scrutiny. I'm not satisfied that an Iranian "spy" would receive a "fair" trial in America. Hell, I'm not certain that Bradley (Chelsey) Manning did. I'm not hopeful that this American is going to get a fair trial by any means, but that doesn't mean he's not guilty as charged. It's the risk that countries spy's accept when they are so employed.
