I feel sorry for these mothers but on the same token, I can't help but to think that they were spies. The more I research the subject, the more clear
"Shane, Sarah and Josh have been detained in Iran without due process for almost 11 months, in continued violation of Iranian and international
law," the mothers said.Please visit the link provided for the complete story.
Where were these mothers when the US was doing far worse. The US has held hundreds of people (at least) without due process or even charge. I realize
that it is not these mothers' fault, but still. Did they have a problem with the US doing this kind of thing on a much larger scale?
Bauer and Shourd got engaged in prison and plan to get married after their release.
"Shane told me that he proposed to Sarah in the yard of Evin prison on January 6, the very same day that we applied for our visas to go visit them,"
Bauer's mother, Cindy Hickey, said at the time. "We're all so overjoyed at the news, but it's obviously impossible to know when the wedding will take
place." Please visit the link provided for the complete story.
Good for them, I'm happy to hear that they have found a silver lining from those whole situation. I do hope that they will one day be able to realize
a marriage, outside of Iran.
While I believe these "hikers" to be spies (though I'm not 100% certain, obviously), that doesn't mean that I'm not rooting for them. I feel for their
parents, friends and loved ones who have to suffer through this ordeal with them. I think the best thing that Iran could do, is to take the moral
high-ground and release or charge these kids. I believe such a move would give Iran good PR if they don't stoop to the level of the US by detaining
people without charge or even due process. I pray for their safe return.
