I don't even know where to begin saying everything that is wrong with that. They want the freedom to develop nuclear technology without any checks and balances under the guise of peaceful intent yet they are completely lacking in anything I would consider even remotely approaching social morality.

that is indeed quite *i have potty mouth* up, stupid rulings by courts are quite disturbing, it is sad when judges fail to demonstrate wisdom in their rulings, and unfortunately that seems to happen all too often around the world
some hardly reliable googled source wrote:The penal code, which is based on Iranian interpretations of Islamic law, states that if a woman injures or kills a rapist in self-defense, she will not be prosecuted. But proving self-defense is very difficult. The woman must demonstrate that her defense was equal to the danger she faced. Additionally, she must prove inflicting harm was her the last resort in escaping rape. According to press reports, in the last year one woman successfully argued self-defense while being tried for murdering an alleged rapist.
it is hard to accept that site as an objective source, i'm sure there are other things going on in iran apart for what they report, which all seems to be very focused on certain "non favorable" elements

True. But then objectivity is entirely subjective. (And no, I'm not being sarcastic.)

My complete empathy is for the woman. Their boyfriends run away, leaving them. The legal system sentences her to death for defending herself from three rapists. Iran certainly seems to be a place with little to no regard for women at all.

Yeah, I know there are places as bad or worse in their social/legal regard towards women. I'm generalising I know but I feel for every woman in the Middle East and Africa.

As for the revolution... I'm wondering whether that will come before another pre-emptive invasion.

whoa... that's a crazy article. Nice of their boyfriends to "escape" without helping them defend themselves. And I can't believe they would kill a girl for defending herself and niece. UGH... disgusting.
