Saudi Arabia to jail and whip woman who was gang raped

We’re going to pay a serious price some day for supporting these despots. Then again, the world does nothing about the villains running China because China is too big to push around. Saudi Arabia falls in the same category because of their oil. Still, it grows tiring reading about Saudi Arabia’s role in September 11, their continued support for extremism, and now this. And it’s not just Saudi – Dubai is just as backward, blaming a 15 year old boy for his own rape. I’m a nice multicultural guy who gets that each country has its own ways, but there are serious problems in a number of countries out there that can’t be overlooked simply because tolerance is a virtue.
