Rape is bad Mr. Bush

The president was his usual goofy self, actually embarrassing for the nation, during the press conference today. One person and only one person asked about the woman who was gang-raped in Saudi Arabia and sentenced to receive 200 painful bashes from a whip or cane or some such instrument.

Saudi gang rape sentence 'unjust'
A lawyer for a gang-rape victim in Saudi Arabia who was sentenced to 200 lashes and six months in jail says the punishment contravenes Islamic law.

Saudi Arabia has much less freedom than Iraq even under Saddam. Iran has somewhat more freedom than Saudi Arabia and a greater chance of obtaining their own homegrown democracy with greater human rights. Saudi citizens are the most responsible for funding of Sunni insurgents in Iraq who did kill our troops. They are the primary foreign aggressors in the Sunni areas of Iraq who local Sunni leaders grew tired of and decided to eliminate. They were after the Taliban in Afghanistan (and the great ineptitude and inattentiveness of the Bushies) the country most responsible for 9-11.
