Iran unveils finger amputating machine for use on thieves

Photographs appearing to show a blindfolded man having his fingers severed by the mechanical amputation device have been published by an official Iranian press agency.

According to the story, the prisoner used to demonstrate the brutal contraption had been convicted of theft and adultery by a court in Shiraz last Wednesday.

A series of pictures show three masked officials, clad entirely in black, holding the man’s right hand in a vice while one turns a wheel operating the guillotine in the manner of a rotary saw.

So yeah, hooray for human rights!

How’s that Arab Spring working out for you?

Source: Washington Post

Hundreds of protesters chanting “Death to America” stormed the U.S. Embassy compound in Sanna, Yemen on Thursday. The protesters then burned the U.S. flag.

The Obama administration will provide Yemen $337 million in aid in the 2012 fiscal year, up from $147 million provided in the previous fiscal year.

Billions more  in aid has been given to middle eastern countries by this administration and the last. 

Is giving billions in aid to Arab countries a good use of our tax money when they want “Death to America” and murder people trying to help them?

By the way, here is the video that outraged these idiots. My review of it is two thumbs down. The plot line is weak and the director of photography should be fired. Don’t see it in theaters. Wait for it on Redbox.
