    Maybe they should have taught their sons a little more common sense than to go hiking along the Iran-Iraq border. I feel bad for these families, but their kids made their own bed by being complete and utter morons in the first place. "Gee, let me juggle these running chainsaws and then expect everyone to have sympathy when I cut my hand off be accident.".... Sorry, that doesn't work for me.

    I have to agree, there are many places you can choose to go hiking right here in the US, to go to the Iraqi/Iran border to go hiking astounds me, just like the idiots that crossed over into North Korea. Maybe people in the US don't believe what they see on the news and they think Iranians love Americans.

    More importantly the majority of these nitwits think that being an American citizen provides them some sort of protection, when in fact it can often be a detriment. These two would probably have been home months ago if they'd been Canadian or from the UK. They also assume that the Rangers or SEALS or Delta Force will come sliding down a rope to save their asses if they DO get into trouble. THAT's the biggest problem.

    Actually UK citizens get in trouble too because the UK has supported the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, so if they were Brits they would probably be in the same situation, a few years ago the Iranian Navy held some British Sailors hostage a for a while and paraded them around on tv, it was embarassing. As far as the Canadians I am not too sure, Canada does have troops in Afghanistan but I am not sure how good Canadas relations are with the Iranians, bottom line if you are a Westerner its probably a good idea to keep a safe distance from countries like Iran right now.

    Bet they're exchanged within 6 months...

    Iran sentences 2 American men to 8 years in jail
    Aug 20,`11 - Two American men arrested more than two years ago while hiking along the Iraq-Iran border have been sentenced to eight years in prison on charges that include espionage, state TV reported Saturday, a sharp blow to hopes their release was imminent.

    These were Berkley students,

    The CIA spying accusations seem suspect...at first glance anyway.

    After further reflection...given that they were ultra-lib students....I suspect Obama recruited them to spy on Iran in a war zone.

    Or, they could have just been clueless. Or possibly both.
