Iran: British sailors treated humanely

Although you do have to remember, this is also the same group of humane-treaters who believe hanging a 16 year old girl for getting herself raped is humane.

It's just a very nuanced version of humane, I suppose.

Obviously because all the sailors were men.

This from a faith which treats half of humanity as little more than chattel.

I think I read that one of the sailors is a woman. Even so, I cannot believe you are judging another culture to be inferior. What next, expecting people to think for themselves or criticizing politicians?

Oops, I seem to be a couple of posts behind.

There is indeed a female amongst them, and it is reported she too has been given humane treatment, and privacy. Privacy, lest her infidelic female cooties leap from her and attempt to strangle her guards, may peace be upon them.
