Iran, you are a complete disgrace.


Q: What is stranger than fiction? A: Iran’s government.

Evidently, a woman identified as Ashtiani (the woman who would be stoned) said in the interview broadcast late Wednesday that she was an unwitting accomplice to her husband’s murder. The woman’s face was blurred and her words were voiced over in what the TV report said was a translation into Farsi from Azeri Turkish, which is spoken in parts of Iran.

Really?  Also, in the interview, the woman criticized her lawyer, Mohammad Mostafaei, for publicizing her case. (The lawyer, poor man, has fled to Norway where he has applied for asylum while expressing hope he can someday return to Iran).

Claptrap! If this is the Iranian Legislature’s best stuff, then I will almost feel sorry when they get bombed back to the Stone Age. This is a country whose leadership is far outside the bounds of human decency. And, using the word leadership to describe these men somehow makes dirty the meaning of the word for all time.

Now, in November 2010, it turns out the country is going to kill her anyway. I would propose the US government get its head out of its ass and condemn the leadership of Iran to a stoning American style…with a few dozen MOAB’s.
