    Kuwait Starting To Notice Girls

    KUWAIT CITY—In light of the country's recent decision to allow women to vote and hold public office, observers around the world have noted that Kuwait appears to have discovered the fairer sex. "The boys in Kuwait are really taking notice of how much the girls have changed over the country's long political winter," said Fouad Ajami, an expert in Arab affairs. "They're no longer shyly avoiding women they're not related to or clumsily shooting them for not wearing veils in public." Ajami added that he was not entirely surprised by Kuwait's discovery, given its long history of teasing women, calling them names, and stoning them to death for being unclean.

    Apparently so. With not much complaints from around the world.

    Guess it is easier to dog the US for the so called bad treatment at Gitmo than to address the shooting and stoning of women.

    Oh yeah..that is their religion..it's ok then.
