Hiiiighway to tha Danger Zone..

The Investigation Deepens...

Have ya ever watched those movies where there's an investigation, and toward the climax of the movie as tha strings start to play, suddenly a deeper plot begins to unravel?

The speech is fast, and suddenly things are bigger than you realize?

That happened to me when I bought a May 31 issue of tha globe and mail and read tha headline "2 women unite in desparate cause"

Tha story was about Nazanin Afshin-Jam, who was was leading a campaign to save a woman's life who killed a man in Iran who tried to her, "See Murder Two"
Since this story came out before I closed tha doop files, and after the comments I made on header1979's post, it caught my interest.

I wasn't sure whether this girl from BC was a friend or enemy of my true father's, or if it was just a coincidence, but I read that she left Iran in 1979, and it got me to thinkin.

My father had fled from someone in 1979, who he has never told tha family about. Nonetheless, it was pretty easy to figure out that he was running.

I recently thought about my stepfather's involvement with the american military, and I tried to think further.

The year that Nazanin Afshin Jam came to BC from Iran, is tha same year that my stepfather left.

The Iran Iraq war started a year later.

I'm not saying there is any connection between our families, but I don't really know much about my stepfather's military dealings.

I wonder who else made commutations in 1979...

What was going on with tha american military then?

I was too young to know.

After writing tha free as a bird post, I just remembered something else. The reason my father gave us was a hastiliy worded excuse to get away from tha military bases on Van Isle, saying we would be safer from war up north. All I remember at tha time was thinking about Russia, since THAT was the war that everybody talked about. I was too young to make the connection with Iran and Iraq.

Actually, that war hadn't even started yet.
