    Default Iranians take down pirates

    Contrary to our news services many Iranian people want more freedom and are not all zealots. In 2007 I was on a Horizon lines ship in the yard in China and we had to cross an Iranian vessel to get ashore. I was heading ashore one night at 1800 and smelled some delicious meat cooking on a half drum bar-b-que grill on the Iranian ship. The cook asked all of us if we wanted to try it. We all did and it the best lamb I had ever tasted. We thanked the seaman for his generosity. The deck gang on watch talked in depth to the officers on the ship and they all said the same thing. They had jobs and made good money wished they had more freedom. One guy said he was imprisoned for reading western literature for 6 months. Their politicians are a bunch of idiots just like ours are. Seaman around the world are pretty much the same.

    Glad they took a bunch of those scourges of the sea out and captured a bunch more

    Or how about this American Pastor who was sentenced today to 8 years in jail for evangelizing in Iran 13 years ago.
