    It makes no sense I am continually shocked at what is acceptable.

    actually, this has everything to do with this war, this war is not just Iraq and Afghanistan
    its radical Islamist extremists
    and Somalia has been a part of this for a long time now

    can the us now be the morals police for all countries? think about it....what are you going to stop? once you go into a country for stoning a child, you will have to consider the rest...africa...myth..sex with a virgin will cure aids...infants are being raped by men with aids...women's sexual organs are being cut away...that is spread to more than africa...thailand...children forced into sex trade...china...infanticide in killing of female infants due to one child policy...what about the kids in south america who huff the glue exported out of the us...the glue is illegal to sell here but we allow its exportation to them. it is a slippery slope with a long list of countries that allow the slaughter of children. plus be careful the image you think you have...cause sometimes when a mirror is held up ...you get a different image back.

    I can say, without a hint of hesitancy, that this was a disgusting act. I could use a lot more adjectives but it would be boring and predictable.

    And this is why I totally reject any allegations of cultural imperialism by me or those like me. My values are superior to those who did this. And I can prove it. The people who did this are inferior in their value systems and their value systems, such as they are, need to be reformed. And yes, I'm being restrained.

    Cultural Rock, I live south of the most populous Islamic nation on Eartth - Indonesia - but I can't think of that sort of horrific thing happening there. Indonesians are fine people, there may be a few loonies out there who might agree with that but I would think 99.99% of Muslim Indonesians would be totally disgusted with this.

    And how many Arab and African Muslims are there that practice this form of punishment? Add in Pakistan as well. They justify it with the Koran and religion. It is part of their religion. Add in Honor killings and shame killings.

    When the Catholic Church practiced the Inquisition do we now make excuses for those evil acts? Why are you so willing to make excuses for Muslim evil acts practiced in the name of religion?

    Somalia is Libertopia, folks.

    With no effective government to harrass the market by regulation and silly unionism, the place is a laissez fair paradise.
