Iran has been pummeled by our propaganda networks for years. This does not surprise me.

What would you do if you caught seven terrorist trying to enter your country?

Thanks for the alert, as it's twitter is it positive the detainees are armed forces as lots of hikers wear mil surplus gear, any explosives they may have been carrying could have been for clearing landslides they might encounter and weapons would be for be for bears and such.

If it indeeds proves to be true, then by all rights, under international law, this can be seen as an act of war, can it not?

Should they have been sent there under direct orders of their government/military, then that to me is an act of war, forgetting international law.

But to call people terrorist for following orders is a bit over the line.

Two Iranians were with the group too.

Still, no word on what has happened. Or if the soldiers went without putting up a fight.

And if I remember right, Iran's President is on his way to the states, is in that correct?

One does wonder about the timeing of this report.

And here is a link with Ahmadinejad asking for America to release Iranian prisoners after the release of the hiker. Seems he now has some more bargaining chips.

www.indianexpress.com...



After releasing an American hiker, Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has asked Washington to respond to Tehran's "humanitarian gesture" by setting free eight Iranians currently being held in the US.

This could be Iran trying to strengthen their hand, while in the United States. But, this has huge implications. The possibility of a backlash - even hostilities.

Listen to yourself:

The IRANIAN president is going to the STATES.

It's all a big facade. Pay more attention to the situation in Pakistan and Afghanistan, ask questions about the situation in Pakistan. The Islamic regime has seemingly been a puppet regime since the 80s, it's too much of a perfect enemy of the US and Israel and vice versa.

I'm done watching a puppet show.

F his 'humanitarian' gesture. These so called leaders can't even create a safe existance for their people, these aren't leaders these are actors! Too many people in US and Iranian torture prisons for humanitarian to be anything other than an empty word.

Maybe the troops were sent in to free them? With one free they would have better intelligence on where the others are?

yes, good thought

but i highly doubt it without a fight.

jimmy carter's attempt to free the originals in 79' was a tragedy.

i can't see a repeat.
