    The Iranian Islamofacist theocracy is poisonous to human rights. We should fund and supply the incipient Kurdish rebellion in northern Iran. We need to stop the mullahs before they get nukes.

    Any chance that she will get out of there? Iran is not hospitable to women, Nobel winners or not.

    Doesn't she get $50,000 for winning a Nobel prize? I think that may just be enough to get people to look the other way while she escapes to the US or the UK.

    Hope she doesn't go to France they would ban traditional and religious garb.

    I am sure the mullahs would be delighted if she left. Without her, Iranian dissidents would lose their most effective legal advocate.

    The Iranian confrontation with America over nuke development is not far off. We can thank the Russians and the Pakistanis for the Persian nuke proliferation. The new Soviets probably find it all amusing. The mullahs pay them billions for nuke tecgnology and the US has to pay billions to get rid of it. Bush's "friendship" with Putin has certainly not helped with the Iranian nuke problem.
