hey, as long as they've got our oil, right?

a 19 year old saudi woman has been sentenced to 6 months in prison and 200 lashes after being GANG RAPED by 7 men for being with a male that was no relation to her at the time of the attack. the saudi judiciary, yesterday, defended the court's ruling.

this is the kind of bullshit that pisses me off in the double speak that defines this administration. allies that continue to do horrific things in the form of human rights abuses are embraced. oppressive regimes are propped up by our tax dollars. world wide killers are trained at the school of the americas, also on your dime. this is the kind of stuff that breeds future "enemies" and terrorists. but, hey - we have all the oil we need for now, right?
