    What kind of freaking moron flys half way around the world to hike in a country with which we are at war?! :confused: :eek:

    Iran confirms U.S. hikers arrested for 'illegal entry'

    Current reports allege that at least one hiker is a journalist. Which begs the question, 'Is any story worth your life?' What if you're a crappy writer and you don't get a Pulitzer prize for your trouble?:confused:

    Surely these people knew what they were doing. I can't believe seasoned travelers would fly all that way and feign ignorance of the hostilities going on in that part of the world and choose to start hiking like that. What is wrong with them?

    To me, that is like playing twister in a mind field.

    I find it HIGHLY conspicuous that we had American citizens just wandering into the "Axis of Evil" by accident. Crazier shit has happened, but it seems ridiculous to me.

    Nah, still the same. They require you to be able to spell the school's name for admission consideration. Unless it's Haas School :p

    NO ONE walks close to sensitive borders "accidentally" Of course these "hikers" were US plants. WHY? Don't know that answer.

    Spies? CIA? A US plot to paint Iran and/or North Korea as the bad guy and US as the innocent one?

    The US always plays the good vs. evil game with the US being the good one. PROPAGANDA US STYLE
