It looks like you are outraged over the fact that they aren't 'allowing' Americanization standards for women over there.........and yet you claim nearly the loudest here in SE about how that very fact is why those countries hate us so much.

Please make up your mind on which side of this fence you want to be on instead of posting things like this, then stepping back out of the thread to see the resultant posts.

How do you plan to spin this story into another Bush Administration 'mistake'?

I don't plan to spin it that way, Toni.

Bush is only responsible for much of what's wrong with our government -- Saudi Arabia has more than enough problems of its own (and more than we do, too).

.... I am thanking my lucky stars that I am not subject to be ''mixing'' with those men.

Never cared for human beings being considered property.

I especially thought this part was funny

The driving prohibition has forced families to hire live-in drivers, who, strangely, are allowed to be alone with women. Al-Zulfa said clerics have deemed this a lesser evil than driving. Women whose families cannot afford to pay $300 to $400 a month for drivers rely on male relatives to take them around.

Well, not really haha funny, but surely someone over there will point this out.
