Let's Liberate Saudi Arabia Next!

Some 20 people from various countries face floggings and prison time for cutting a rug in Saudi Arabia. Their swingin' soiree included alcohol, dancing and the intermingling of unrelated people of opposite sexes – all forbidden by Saudi law.

(One has to wonder what a "party" in Saudi Arabia would consist of, given the prohibition of said activities. "Pin the Tail on the Camel" can only be fun for so long. And "Spin the Scimitar" – we won't even go there.)

Saudi Arabia is well known for its draconian, dogmatic laws, which emanate from its monarchical government. This isn't the symbolic monarchy of today's United Kingdom, either, but the old school monarchy with absolute power of life and death over its subjects. The difference between "monarch" and "dictator" is indeed semantic.


Obviously, Saudi Arabia is a Middle Eastern country that needs to experience the fruits of democracy. Which is why I have the following plea for President Bush:

Mr. President, please use your influence to bring democracy to the beleaguered people of Saudi Arabia. Call on Congress to approve funds for military action against that nation NOW! If a democratic Iraq makes us safer in the US, wouldn't a democratic Saudi Arabia do the same? Make up some stuff about an imminent threat from Saudi Arabia if you have to. Our future security, and many lucrative business contracts, depend on it.

PS: I just remembered the Saudi royals, brutal dictators though they may be, are close friends and business associates of the Bush Family. We won't hear a peep out of President Bush about any of this.

Don't forget Clinton he is a close freind as well.

I knew if I repeated it enough you'd come around.

Now say it with bogs you know the words....

NUKE MECCA!!

Pete Bogs said...

Muke Necca... er, Mute Macca... I am trying...

we can't nuke it if we are to invade... our people would be over there, too...

I've always been a critic of Middle Eastern countries for their backwardness...

Hellpig said...

Yeah but you made your story sound like Bush is the only one to kiss Saudi ass.

SA is the sole contributors to terrorism abroad,they fund madrassa's and mosques all over the world and they preach the Wannabian(not sure how to spell it) brand of Islam

Pete Bogs said...

no, I'm sure others bow to the House of Saud, too... I'm just intrigued by a man who holds hands with the head of a country, who is also a brutal dictator, after he invaded Iraq for the same reason... there's no democracy in Saudi Arabia, either...

as far as what other presidents have done, it concerns me most, in the post-9/11 world, that we would be allies with the country that gave us 15 of 19 of those hijackers... but, since it serves other purposes, we seem to not have an issue with it... or, rather, our commander in chief doesn't...

If you ask Al Gore it's the US who is the problem. He even said so while in Saudi about a year ago. "terrible abuses" against Arabs by the United States was the line.

but bogs! the saudis are working toward democracy. the monarchy knows its people and culture best and just how to evolve the country at the proper pace toward democracy. these things take time and must be handled delicately. ;)

hah!

as for "it" being the US's fault - the mess we made in iraq sure hasn't improved the situation in the mid-east, nor our world prestige. and its stetched our military far too thin. we made things worse - not only for the world, but for ourselves.

Hellpig said...

I agree Bird the military is streched far too thin

BRING BACK THE DRAFT

Post 9/11 I have pic of Clinton hugging the King from the house of Saud,when he was paid a 1/2 million to speak there.

i'll agree to bringing back the draft IF

we put in place stricter regulations and more oversight to mitigate the possibility of going to war on a lie (i.e., manipulated and inaccurate and just plain false intel)

and IF

we limit the draft to white, wealthy males.

until minorities and women are fully represented, let those who are shoulder the physical burden of war.

flap/flap/swoosh

Pete Bogs said...

me, I say bring back the (Guinness) Draught!

Hellpig said...

Bird the intel you refer to is Clintons intel and his lie not Bush's,if Bush lied he'd be impeached but I don't see that happening ever,why? because he never lied.

And I think all the students from the SF area should be drafted first as they are not learning anything worthy to begin with.

Aunty Belle said...

Bawgs, is ya all moved? Any new finches???

Pete Bogs said...

aunt b - I am moved in and am finding places to put a few last items right now... am glad to be almost done...

I've seen/heard some finches in a small tree nearby... not sure yet if I am going to provide a bird buffet...

Aunty Belle said...

Hope ya does--set out a buffet, I mean. I got finches in trees, but they won't come eat from the FInch feeder I done bought special--what is I doin' wrong?

(Glad youse gettin' settled--mayhap a sweet little thang will bring ya some wine and cheese as a happy house-warmin')

"the old school monarchy with absolute power of life and death over its subjects"...

Wellllllllll pete, that's bush's ultimate goal!


"if Bush lied he'd be impeached but I don't see that happening ever,why? because he never lied"...

ROTFLMAO!

Hellpig said...

Pete Bogs said...

aunt b - do you have dogs, cats or other critters near the feeder? that could be an issue... Finchy found me; I didn't have to attract him... he was singing on my porch a lot and I finally decided to put some food out... I don't really know much about birds...
