That woman was sick, I don't know if she had cancer or what but she was sick as a damn dog.
I have no clue how they will get out of this one, Iranian jails don't play with people. Once you come in, you're probably not coming back out.

She wasn't released, she was bailed out with hundred thousand dollars I think? Or it could have been even more.

Hiking on Iraq/Iran border
Nice cover story, but I'm glad these two have been trialled and sentenced.

Are you joking, or is that what you seriously believe? Never thought the delusional beliefs towards Iran wasn't this far fetched.

Quite a lenient sentence for espionage don't you think?

"Oh hello, Yeah, Ummm, We were just hiking the Iran Iraq border for fun"

Really? You could tell Americans Sadam is running Iran and they'd want to invade.

I don't believe it, if our relations were better. They would've let those people out, we're in a war and they're not budging. I can't blame them though. Everybody needs to cover their own arse.
