I agree with Kerry. In fact I would go further and say that Saudi Arabia is best left to Saudi Arabia and our foreign aid is best left to some other country who has a modicum of respect for women and children.

In other words stop giving money to a bunch of child molesters.

If a Republican said that, it would be another “War on Women” story.

I knew a US woman who drove in Saudi Arabia during the US preparation for operations in Desert Shield.

Some local Saudis thought it would be a good idea to follow her, and teach her that she is not permitted to drive by perpetrating an assault on her.

She was able to hold them at gunpoint until they were picked up by Saudi officials. They were executed the next morning.

But that is completely different.

People are born gay, but they chose to be women....

Is he advocating Shariah law here?: Does he mean that whether women should drive should be left up to the Saudis, or does he mean that whether women should drive in Saudi should be left up to the Saudis?

American culture is based on Christian principles, which the left opposes.

I used to say that “liberalism” was based on no foundation whatsoever,
but it actually is based on the same Christian principles as our ideology is based - but in opposition to them.

I'll bet Kerry also thinks that honor killing of raped women is also something best left to Saudi laws, as is the stoning of young women who have premarital sex. Let's not forget that many Saudis seem to be tried for slavery as they don't seem to understand the line between employees and slaves.

But, they are the Saudi’s, our energy masters. They have so much money and have invested so heavily in the western economy, that they have say in what we can say politically.

Yes, I understand why Obama bowed to the Saudi royal family.

I also understand what Kerry is really saying. (/sarcasm)

KERRY: QUESTION OF WOMEN DRIVING 'BEST LEFT TO SAUDI ARABIA'

Well then... The question of Women be stoned for having been raped should also be left to Saudi Arabia (to Islam)? The question of women's rights are "Best left to Saudi Arabia"? How about Human Rights in general? Is discrimination considered anti-human rights by Kerry's standards?

What is America's position on Human Rights exactly? Are we finely admitting that this administration has different standards for different individuals based on national origins, race, sex, creed, religion and political affiliations/opinions? When can we start calling Obama a racist hypocrite without being labelled ourselves?

I suppose Kerry also supports the Saudis executing people for witchcraft or for converting from Islam to Christianity, child marriage and female genital mutilation.

Having spent *some* time in the Middle East (but not that much) and having followed the plight of women in moslem countries pretty closely I'd say that the right to drive is the *least* of their problems.

I knew a US woman who drove in Saudi Arabia during the US preparation for operations in Desert Shield.

I doubt if we know the same woman. But the story sounds familiar (except for the part about the executions). For the soldier I know, she did stop the assault and held off the men at gun point until Saudi officials intervened. She was with another male soldier under her command who was NOT driving. She was also reprimanded by her superiors for driving off base (or even sitting in the front seat). If I remember correctly, there were certain areas where they were to follow local customs once they were off base.

"... I'd say that the right to drive is the *least* of their problems."

While true, driving enables escape and association. It will help empower them.

It’s not clear that Democrats ever believed “all men are created equal.” Back in the good old days of slavery, the Democrats said that refers to White Anglo-Saxon Protestants. Then, during the Progressive era, they distinguished the advanced races from the primitive. Now, they have simply reverted to form. For a brief interlude, they passed through the place of believing in universal truths, such as are expressed in our Declaration of Independence and in the UN Universal Declaration of Human Rights, and are now back to their origins of believing that rights are a function of social evolution.

Kerry being afraid to articulate a correct position about woman in Saudi Arabia and their inalienable rights is not something I agree with.

I doubt we give SA foreign aid.
