Who do you believe: British soldiers or Iranians?

British soldiers are saying that Iranians didn't treat them well keeping them separately tied, etc. Iranians are releasing videos where British soldiers shown playing tennis, eating nice food with nice flower centre pieces, playing chess, laughing, etc.

Who is lying in IYO?

Re: Who do you believe: British soldiers or Iranians?

Any person with any semblance of intelligence can see that the Iranian government compulsively lies and creates propoganda.

Now let's think for a moment who has more to gain/lose by not telling the truth. The soldiers who happen to lie- ALL of them with a corroborated fictional tale, or the Iranian government that does not want itself portrayed as brutal and deceitful in the eyes of the world?

They are both lying. Each side will twist the facts to benefit their own side of the story. I agree with RonE but unfortunately most governments, not just Iran, "compulsively lie and create propaganda".

I never trust Blair or Bush so my answer is clear.

British soldiers should be happy that they got free and had two good weeks in Iran.

Please, where are the lies from the British Government? We have no problem knowing the Iranian government lies, but I will wait for your proof of the lies from the British government.

Under construction in Iran.

But if you are confusing this thread with Iraq, then check the lungs of a couple of hundred thousand dead kurds.

There is a propaganda from both sides.

I don't agree that Iranians have much to lose. They are hated anyways regadless on what they do. The soldiers have more to lose. In some Western media there are questions on how they could so quickly admit they were wrong. It's embarassing. And the British government has apologized admitting that that the soldiers were arrested in the Iranian wtaers.
