And These Are The Good Guys??? Why on Earth does the West which is so quick to condemn human rights abuses in other countries continue to pander to these sick Saudi despots. http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/middle_east/7415290.stm Incredibly the maid was originally sentenced to 79 lashes for making a 'false' accusation despite her employers admitting they had done it!!! Saudi Arabia may well be the world's biggest supplier of oil but the West is also their biggest customer. It's about time the West used this leverage to force them to show at least a modicum of civilised behaviour.
