Human Rights Watch, Reprieve, Iran Human Rights, the World Coalition Against the Death Penalty, Harm Reduction International and the Abdorrahman Boroumand Foundation, all noisy do-gooders together; all chant in unison about the dreadful Regime in Iran, and their habit of executing drug smugglers.
Now I haven’t got a great deal of affection for the mullahs who lead Iran, and I definitely dislike their way of executing homosexuals for being homosexuals. I am no great fan of shirt-lifters-anonymous, nor of the female equivalent; but I would maybe ban them from all public places, and if they wish to parade their ‘lifestyles’, or experiment with whatever it is they actually do, they should be allowed to do this only on, say, Gruinard Island; or else somewhere equally remote and unfriendly.
But when it comes to the treatment of drug smugglers, I am all with the Iranian Regime, for I am firmly of the belief that a drug trafficker is no better than a murderer, because the slow death caused by their product is just as certain as a bullet, or a knife. Hanging is really too good for these murderous clowns, but the problem is that their employers, the money men, keep well off the trafficking routes, so they will hardly ever be trapped.
