(Sarah Shroud, Shane Bauer, and Josh Fattal; Shroud was released earlier.)
There's been a lot of recent publicity about the two American hikers, Josh Fattall and Shane Bauer, who were released by Iran this past weekend. What's been missing from all the commentary is any mention of how incredibly dumb they were to be backpacking on the Iraq-Iran border in the first place.
Exactly how stupid were they? Here's a clue. Bauer said that he hoped his release from prison would also bring "freedom for political prisoners in America and Iran."
Yep. Our prisons, just like Iran's, are full of political prisoners.
That's how dumb you have to be to go hiking in Iran.
Note the picture above. Wherever you find masculine white women and feminine white men, you will almost always find a certain brand of political correctness. (Tell me you couldn't have guessed the political views of the three above just from their appearance.)
For my next vacation, I plan a trip to Somalia. I understand the beaches there are quite lovely.
Oh, and in case you were wondering, it's no more lawless over there than it is here.
