Saudi Arabia, as I'm sure you know, is governed by our kind of fundamentalist nutjobs. The "universalists" of our government are always quick to avoid criticising nutjobs who play our game economically and buy lots of the killing machinery we're so good at manufacturing. It is, I suppose, a form of universalism. There is a consistency there; it's just that it has nothing to do with ethics, values, or humanitarianism.

The fact that the Saudi government has spent millions of dollars promoting fundamentalist Wahhabism around the world is a trifling matter. It's the economy stupid.

Now, go read Chicken Yoghurt.
