the princess , doesn't get it, that change comes from the people, not from the "decision makers " in power that will enact change. I ask her not to be like the Syrian first lady, and respond to the Arab revolts . don't wait for change to come a knocking , you might not like what you hear. tip - the kingdom doesn't have five years. (my opinion)
when the Arab revolts happen and they will . the kingdom, will be in a better position if democratic values are in place, long before social dissonance takes hold. qualified =more tolerant.
parallels between pak and SA ? borders sanctuaries, huge extended

not SA . ( but can socialist practice sustain ?)
complete support from the us for the secular elite at the expense of the majority.
the unspoken/tacit support from some military elements for what the us considers " radical Islamists " the double game ? bin laden family before, during and after 911 ... after bin ladens assassination . consider. high strangeness .
shrewd move from one of my favorites ... ( SA ) disassociate from Bahrain ?
check it out . too funny. it's hard to imagine this behavior. religious police. women are out of control !( sarcasim here.) is the leadership held to the same standard ? apparently the coloured nail polish was deemed inappropriate and the women was asked to leave the mall. women aren't permitted to drive in Saudi Arabia. the place where time stood still. our allies whom assisted Bahrain military forces beat, kill ,and imprison protesters.
