Why not just call it what it is?

"TWO men in Saudi Arabia have been sentenced to 7000 lashes each after being convicted of sodomy and have received their first round of punishment in public, a newspaper said today."

Surely this is a death sentence, how could you get seven thousand lashes and not contract a fatal infection?

These worthless barbarians governing in the "Kingdom" of Saudi Arabia are supposed to be our allies? They're as bad as Iran, maybe worse, at least Iran has prospects for reform.

These are the people we went to war to protect in 1991, Kuwait as well but they aren't exactly the nicest of folks either. Would it really matter if the people of Kuwait and Saudi Arabia were ruled by Iraq's oppressive government rather than their own?

When will people realise the enemy of my enemy is not my friend?
