    If they entered Iran illegally then it's on them. A sad reality, but, it is what it is.

    If they were in Iraq legally and did not enter Iran and were arrested, then an act against one, is a act against all and Washington needs to take harsh action.

    Oh I'm sure the Her Thighness has penned out a strongly worded BEGGING... and that it is making its away through channels as we speak...

    Not to worry... we're hold ing hands now... everything's cool.:eusa_whistle:

    Why I'm sure that those hikers are all about Mother Earth and understanding the differing opinions of others... and in fairly short order they'll have this whole thing ironed out as they bring any of a number of anti-American diatribes to bear on the Iranians who 'captured' them... They're making friends fast, there can be no doubt.

    Sort of reminds me of the Human Shields, who felt that the entire war could be avoided if they went to Iraq and explained to Saddam how they understood his anti-American position... where upon he shook a vigorous hand and found them a lovely spot right at ground zero, to help them, help him.

    Seems, if memory serves however, that something was lost in the translation... because the more vociferous of them got the hell out of there and returned to report, in effect: 'dat muslim CRAZEH!'

    Guess hiking in the National Parks and Forests here in the US wasn't a good enough vacation... Just something to think about. Hillary will come to the rescue. Have no fear. Then she can have her moment of fame so we can all puke.

    Most likely the three were spys who got caught.

    But now they are being presented to the media as civilian hikers.

    If their last names turn out to be something like Goldstein or Feinburg.

    Then it will be obvious who they were working for.

    if the police or soldiers swarmed the 3...why didnt the 3 ....see or hear them before....major rule of being where you are not suppose to be..know who else is there too....

    this is now another distraction for the administration to deal with.

    Dumbassed college kids with too much money. Hell, when I was in college, I couldn't afford to get of of town, much less hike in the hills of the Middle East.

    Of all the holiday destinations in the world, these asshats choose to go to Iraq and/or Iran, at this time?:cuckoo:
    They're either incredibly stupid, or they were up to no good.
