Comments on: Executions come swiftly and often in Iran’s ‘justice’ system http://blogs.reuters.com/great-debate/2015/08/17/u-s-just-made-a-deal-with-the-country-that-leads-world-in-per-capita-execution-rate/ Thu, 21 Jul 2016 07:57:19 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: BroadArrow http://blogs.reuters.com/great-debate/2015/08/17/u-s-just-made-a-deal-with-the-country-that-leads-world-in-per-capita-execution-rate/#comment-1104001 Mon, 14 Sep 2015 17:22:59 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/great-debate/?p=42780#comment-1104001 Capital punishment for illegal drug trafficing is not uncommon throughout Asia and the Middle East. That of course does not rule out the fact that the Iranian regime is a sore on the landscape of the global community, and seeks to impose its will on their Arab neighbors in Iraq, Syria and ultimately Lebanon, a move to create a “Shia crecent” from the Persian Gulf to the Mediterranean Sea, and all with help from a bold Putin foreign policy and an apathetic, unprepared and fickle Obama administration.

Yet we still pretend like we have to fight with Iran about something. Maybe this keeps the Israel lobby happy? Who knows. Time for Israel to wake up and get along with people.

And I like to thank Reuters for publishing this, and I hope to see more of these true and factual article.

Iran’s illegal immigrants are ISIS and Al Qaeda members. Big difference. Remember where their country is. It is up to them how they wish to deal with their terrorist neighbors drifting in.

You are obviously a TRUE human rights activist rather than a party loyalist like most other so-called “activists”. I don’t always agree with the stances or tactics of human rights activists and peace activists, buy I do respect their beliefs – again, if they are true activists. Judging by some of the comments I see many of the people I’m referring to – comrades – are pouring out their venom. They are the minions who follow blindly their leaders. How dare you, Mr. Panah, point out the abuses of Iran now that Obama says all is well?

We continue to use drones to execute people around the world where ever and when ever we see fit. We’re going to now hassle Iran about their… legal process?

America has lost all credibility on matters relating to human rights and civilian deaths.

The article is lightweight in details. Undocumented migrants from Afghanistan would raise red flags in my country, especially with the disenchantment of Al Qeada operatives seeking to reintegrate into alternatively more virile strains of Fundamentalist franchises. Afghanistan also being the richest source of Opium production, which has spiralled after the U.S. invasion, indicates that executions may be directed towards stemming trafficking through her lands; many returning funds highly likely to find their ways into the war chests of ideologues. There must be plenty of social work to occupy a wayward human rights lawyer in the Bay area and further to the South West. Amazes that nationals seek human rights abuses in distant lands when so much work has to be accomplished in their own lands. Homelessness must be rife in the mega sprawls of the East and West Coast. Violent crime surrounding crime syndicates appears to be spiralling out of control in the United States. Your streets are mean streets. So what is the solution; bash a foreign nation state that has evolved over many thousand of years from the desert sands of a completely different world. 700 state sanctioned executions as compared to 30 000 gun related executions in the U.S. and death squads roaming the Mexican badlands, ignited by previous the Administrations’ ridiculous War on Drugs. Clean up your own backyard United States before you judge country of other cultures.
