I Guess This Gives New Meaning To The Phrase "Well Hung"

Let's see. A stagnent economy. Millions of under-employed young people desperate for a future. An international reputation for uncooperative stonewalling. A government riven by political rivalry. What do you do? Hang ya some queers!

(New York, November 22, 2005) – Iran's execution of two men last week for homosexual conduct highlights a pattern of persecution of gay men that stands in stark violation of the rights to life and privacy, Human Rights Watch said today. On Sunday, November 13, the semi-official Tehran daily Kayhan reported that the Iranian government publicly hung two men, Mokhtar N. (24 years old) and Ali A. (25 years old), in the Shahid Bahonar Square of the northern town of Gorgan.

Iran, welcome, to the Eighteenth Century!
