This is why religion and politics do not and should not mix. And what's really odd is that we consider Pakistan to be an ally. We need to stop recognizing these 7th century barbarians. Cut ties, cut funds, cut support, until they come to their senses some day.

The United Nations has a fair number of things to say about the US as far as human rights violations go - the death penalty is considered barbaric in much of the world. So should we therefore abolish the death penalty???
When and where has someone in the U.S. in recent years been condemned to death because they drank some water?

Yes, we should. The death penalty is far too easy a way out for most of the people who are condemned to that fate. And you're right, we don't rule the world.(and neither does the UN) But we should not be supporting nations who condone 7th century theocracy and the barbaric practices that go along with that. No funding, no relief, no weapons, no nothing. Are you defending killing someone who refuses to convert to Islam and needed a drink of water?

The absolute truth is that the United States has supported ruthless dictatorships for decades and decades. Many of the dictatorships that the US supports have been as bad as or worse as the Muslim countries that you are complaining about.
That was kind of my point. We should not be supporting any of them. But, we do. Why? Follow the power and money. And not one administration in the last 50 or even 100 years, be is democrat or republican, has done anything to stop it.

Please learn to play chess. It will teach you how to look beyond the obvious and see what will likely occur if we let this type of Barbarism become acceptable.

We do what we do to because of greed. Do we really want their oil? Or does someone want to make sure we keep buying their oil? After all, we have an offer from Canada for oil at a better price but Obama won't allow the pipeline to be built.
