iran's gotta look at this as a potential olive branch from america. once he's sent back and after they execute him, the ny philharmonic can go play there the next week, just like they did after nk executed the 22 defectors that sk returned to them. iran will get a few specials showing how wonderful it really is and how misguided we foolish americans are.

i think that once we have a democrat in the white house we'll see this as what it is: a blatant attempt by the west to separate a loving iranian family.

Need I say it? Hilary's fault.
No good can possibly come from using this vast wasteland of error and deliberate deceit. You should get off of it and warn others away. You should make sure your children and grandchildren know what a corrupt and morally bankrupt institution it truly is.

Papa I think this situation is far broader than politics. Certainly western democracy is at odds with Iran but we have yet to stand up for any sort of human rights in Iran, Africa or elsewhere. The fact that this boy is gay gets our attention but this kind of heinous practice should get our attention whether the person is gay, black, poor, or just belongs to wrong religious or ethnic group. Until we are willing to stand up for human rights in the same way we defend our oil interests we cannot truly say we are a caring people.

Since Iran magically has no homos I wonder if this kid will turn straight when he arrives back in Iran. Then they won't have to kill him.

this is terrible. and it IS shameful, if the UK deports him knowing he'll be executed. if he did something that was considered a crime all over the world, it would be understandable. but this sort of situation is what giving asylum is all about, isn't it?? ugh.

You mean like all those North Korean specials that have been saturating the airwaves?

You guys are missing the point. He would be the FIRST gay person in Iran!
And since that would contradict what dinner jacket said, the country will implode and become a black hole.

What were they called, papa? I watch PBS daily and never even saw an ad beyond the concert itself.

Ah, those are about the concert--I thought you meant there were specials about the sweet life in NK--like a Cinerama Holiday.

You know I think it's very important that we separate the people from their governments--lord knows I wouldn't want to held accountable for GWB's words and deeds...or even Bill Clinton's for that matter.

I know he didn't say those exact words, i was just funnin' (thanks doodle!)

But it's kind of cool to be a "phenomenon" though. It sounds so much nicer than "abomination".

Huffington Post BLOWS...they still haven't processed my registration from LAST WEEK! They don't enjoy dissent as papa says.

I'll stick with my comrades over at dailykos--some of those guys make me look like a capitalist piglet.
