    That's pretty ****ed up.

    Iranians needs to understand their whole country can be smashed to bits.

    Hate to say it but, because she was on their soil illegaly I don't believe there is anything we can do.

    If our leaders raised a really big public outcry over this then they set themselves up for a really big embarrassment over the outcome which is completely and legally in Iran's control.

    I remember what happened to Canadian journalist Zahra Kazemi while imprisoned in Iran...

    Yep, this story needs a lot more press. This is when I wish that if we had to have one of the Dem candidates be our president, that Hillary would have been the one. I just don't think Hillary would ignore this cr*p whilst hoping to not offend certain peoples. Sure there's little we can do, but at least Hillary would have been man enough to say to the world that this isn't OK.

    I don't agree with her sentence, however at the same time there is a reason the U.S. Department of State lists travel warnings.

    She shouldn't have gone to Iran (especially being a woman there). She knew full well the risks involved.

    That's not saying I agree with Iran's decision, but it does mean that if you know a country is ****ed up, you shouldn't go there when you are an American.

    Do we trade with Iran? Where does one go to find out what goods are purchased from other countries, by brand name, so we can boycott those goods?
