  • Why do they do it?

    Another two westerners have been jailed after going to Iran. One of them is a British dual National the other Australian.

    This is on top of another women who was jailed for visiting Iran a few years ago.

    Surely anyone who has even the slightest knowledge of the country knows that the Iranians will jail foreigners on a whim?
    Seems just stupid for any Us, British or Australian to visit the country, unless of course they are regime stooges such as Corbyn.

    So why do seemingly normal people take insane risks in going to Iran?

    Because either 1--they agree with Iran and think that will save them or 2--they are adrenaline junkies or 3--they're stupid. Combinations of the three are also acceptable.

      Free societies work because they weed out the stupid? They break down when stupid becomes the norm.

        The news article said the couple was flying a drone without a permit. What were they doing flying a drone in of all places Iran.

          I suppose there is a chance that they could be connected with the intelligence services in which case I would have some sympathy for their plight but otherwise no.

              Iran's government bodies are highly factionalised. It's quite possible that some or all of theem were given seemingly credible assurances about their safety from one senior official or body only to have these ignored or overriden by a different set

                Or they were possibly spying for Israel. I humbly ask you both to please read the article in the OP,

                Few details of the circumstances of their arrest have been made public, but the Australian Broadcasting Corporation said they had reportedly been flying a drone without a permit.

                Iran and Israel spy on each other and try and install there own people into the various Gov departments of there opposition.
