Shortest post from me ever.

The comments from others say it all.
I totally agree. I did not read the article about these two fools.
I read the first parargraph and was thinking, so what. Big deal.
Why the hell go there in the first place?

I read a piece on this today. Some people are really too stupid to bother with. The thing I find the most incredible is that they thought that by converting to Islam things would go better for them. Maybe should have studies up on the extremists you are covering before you go eh?

Like these idiots a few years ago. They finally were released . They gave new meaning to the word, stupid. I mean aren't the Alps or the Rockies pretty enough for them?

TEHRAN | Sat Aug 1, 2009 11:57am EDT

(Reuters) - Iran arrested three American tourists after what one Kurdish official said was an unwitting crossing into Iran from Iraq while hiking in mountains and Washington said it was taking the case very seriously.

The Americans had been arrested after entering Iran from Iraq, a source told Iran's state-run Al-Alam Arabic language television station on Saturday.

A Kurdish official said the group, said to be two men and a woman, crossed into Iranian territory while walking in the picturesque landscape.

"They were interested in going up the mountain and after that they walked down the other side, which is the Iranian side," Falah Mustafa, foreign policy chief for the Iraqi Kurdistan government, told Reuters.

"Because they don't know the area, they entered Iran's lands."

The U.S. State Department said it was investigating reports that Iran had arrested the tourists.

Veteran journalists make contacts with intemediaries who get consent from militant groups to interview their spokesmen. Claire Billet got to meet and interview Afghan Talibs and even go on a night mission with them because lines of communication had been established for them to be there. Anyone who just goes to a country where there is a thriving war needs to understand people are suspicious of outsiders, many times outsiders are spies.

True Islam does not permit raping of women, those who do that are not believers at the time they are doing that. The Egyptian thugs who raped Lara Logan were nothing more than infidel thugs. She was legitamitely there to cover the revolution in Egypt, but they showed no regard not only for her life, but for anyone's life.

Because of this atrocity in Somalia, it will re-inforce the stereotypes against those fighting wars in different Muslim countries and that is sad. I am sure there are some good, decent fighters in Al Qa'ida there, but the people she encountered were not among them.

Sometimes there is a reason for "stereotypes."

The Kantian logic that reality is not real. Some of my PMC friends that work in Africa extensively have relayed other tales of horror that mirror this one. One that strikes me as the worst from Africa was when a group of Scandinavian girls thought that it would be hip to native, and so they removed their tops to walk about like the locals, but this was not only stupid it was deadly. One managed to escape and two other's were found raped and mutilated beyond recognition. The PMCs launched out to try and rescue them but were two late and then they went about the body recovery process and those are never pleasant affairs.

Deal with reality or reality will deal with you.

Despite all the bitching and moaning re: our loss of freedom, those of us who live in a free society can often be blinded by the assumption that other people live the same way.

A good friend was telling me a story about getting rip off in a bar in Greece 40 years ago. When he came back the next day to voice his opinion to people walking past (or in) to the establishment the owner came out; informed him he was not in America and if they threw him in jail he'd stay there a very long time.

My daughter studied in Italy a few years after Amanda Knox. When her and her friends travelled to Amsterdam I explained to her again; you are not in the US. Party the night before; flush if you need to. One of her friends clothes reeked and the airport dogs went wild. They just about strip searched him (they listened and he was clean). If not they'd still be in jail over there

Very well. My uncle was a Fullbright Scholar in Turkey in 1967. He brought some "gifts" home for friends. When he saw that movie he turned pale and then left to throw up when he realized what would have happened to him if he was caught.

The book was better btw. Written by the real Billy Hayes. I highly recommend.
