  •  Human rights a non-issue compared to terror (1+ / 0-)

    I'm much more concerned about state sponsorship for terrorism in Saudi Arabia, the UAE, Yemen, and other Gulf States than I am about their horrible human rights records.

    Bush focusing on human rights is deliberately playing us for fools, as if to downplay the terrorism issue by saying that their worst problem is human rights.  Never mind that also ignores the issue of their corrupt, autocratic, fundamentalist regimes which crush the people and catalyze the frustration which creates fertile ground for terror recruiters.
