Rediculous! Iran Arrests 3 Americans?

Why would you arrest 3 Americans who are just students taking a trip!? I would understand if it was militia or some other being that was up to no good, but if people want to learn a little bit about the world, why bother them? Sheesh. People never tend to mind their own business, but instead they have to ruin life for everyone else to make themselves look big. The Iranian government is utterly and rediculously dumb.

Educational purposes? I dont know. It doesn't matter why they would want to take a trip, what matters is why they aren't being condoned for it and why they should. I doubt there were going to do any harm.

I just can't for the life of me understand why they were in that area in the first place, didn't their parents raise them good or what?? don't know what to say now.

People do things because they want to. Just like Iran arrested them because they wanted to.

Okay I found the news article and there isn't any reasoning why they were arrested. It just states they crossed the boarder. I can understand them hiking the area because of the studies they are in. US and Swiss authories are involved now so there will have to be an answer to the question of why they were arrested. http://www.dallasnews.com/sharedcontent/dws/news/world/stories/DN-americans_02int.ART.State.Edition1.4bb4a1b.html

Thank you for that post kpr, I think it helps with a little insight on the actual issue at hand. I notice I was a bit unclear when I started this discussion.

Oh, I didn't think you were unclear. I agree with your statement, but the link might gain more insite for others too. I just see this as the US and Swiss are involved so questions will need to be answered on why these students were arrestted to begin with.

jeadams, you have not mentioned why they were arrested. Have they done any crime or did they trespass into some forbidden area or did they misbehave with the woman,only if we know the reason, we can comment on it.
