    She did cross the boarder illegally, and I think anyone would question the probability of 3 american hikers in Iraq crossing the boarder with Iran by accident

    I say we reward the Iranian government's ransom attempt with another more ruthless set of sanctions designed to make life in Iran a living hell. Then Iran gets 3 days in which to realse those they kidnapped or the face crippling strikes on ALL costal cities, nuclear sites, military sites, and the homes of each mullah, Aminajihad, and the AYetoiletbowl.

    Yay, military action 'cause people broke the law in a country you don't like, and I think you'll find most countries have 'ransoms', it's also known as bail.

    The bigger question is "will anyone learn a lesson, here?"

    My thought is "no, no one will learn a lesson, here."

    I think the US should sell people back to their own countries to lower the deficit.

    An American woman is worth 500k.

    What is a French man worth or a Russian Woman (spy)?

    It could make a lot of money.

    Actually LT that is questionable. Not only was it an umarked border but the hikers said the Iranians came across the border to nab them. I guess it's the hikers word against the Iranians. I don't know how reliable the hikers are but Iran's track record on telling the truth is questionable.

    I still say it takes a supreme amount of stupidity to hike in a war zone next to the border of a hostile country and be Jewish to boot.

    The Iranians broke the law, violated the border of another nation, kidnapped citizens of another country, and now they need to be destroyed for it. It's time the mullahs, the ayetoiletbowl, and Aminajihad and their Revolutionary stooge islam-o-nazi zealot butt buddies learned a very hard lesson.

    Iran needs to be hit so hard they will never even go near the borders again.

    At least they know it's coming - won't prevent it but can brace for it and when it hits it won't be out of the blue.

    Maybe not ... but it will be so devastating the ****holes who run Iran will know thier limits. The bombing should continue until Iran's current leaders are all dead... or until they surrender and are incarcerated in a non-islamic country.
