The fact that the video clip made it to the net means they got away.

how do you know this was today? Because it was uploaded today? Because it says 8/3 on the video feed? This might as very well be today, but just saying...

docj, actually this women's movement thing is just a sham, a western sponsored sham.

Not saying abuse does not happen, but my years int he US and elsewhere (oz, especially Oz) shows me that a different kind of abuse is prevelant everywhere. 

What the social engineers really want is islamic women to be free (read naked). They will incite a burn the burka movement, akin to burn the bra that led to feminism.

That, is the truth.

'Liberating' women leads to many unpleasant things for men, like taking their opinion into account or looking at women with a lot of make of make-up on their faces, better to cover them with abayas from head to toe and not bother about all those things. Yes, and if one thought it was bad in Iran:

Sheikh Muhammad al-Habadan said showing both eyes encouraged women to use eye make-up to look seductive.

Boris, while you quote an article which is an abstraction, I'm seeing it every day here in india. It is so bad as to make your eyes bleed. You only need to look around you to see it has not done western societies much good at all.

All the suffering was just pushed inside. And the effort was pushed to the skin.

Go deeper. This time is really not for glibness or brutish attachment to old ideas, most fed through a corrupting, biased translation.

Actually if you think about it, liberating women and giving them the same rights and access to education is one of the better ways to control the birth rate. Since western societies are mentioned, their birth rates started falling along with rising standard of living and better access to education. When women are educated better, they find other ways of utilizing their capabilities other than just sitting at home and be a breeding factory for babies.

Saudi example is not at all random, look at the demographics there, couple it with the women treatment - they bloody don't even have the right to drive a car. Sure, patriarchal values are good when society needs a high birth rate to be sustained, but there are already over 6 bln on this planet and we are about to experience some severe disruptions in terms of food and fuel supplies, Middle East with its youth bulge and revolutions all the way is a perfect example.

So you or your state want to be in charge of when women are naked, or free to exercise any other freedom?  Know this: I am ennobled and my life is adorned by the goddesses around me, liberated from your kind of primative thinking.  I'm sorry for you.

Yes, one side mutilates a woman's genitals, denies protection from domestic violence, and strips all rights from women.  They can be abandoned under sharia law for no reason.  The other side destroys the woman's God-given role, strips all rights from men destroying their God-given role, destroying the family unit. These things are not a result of "coincidence".  These things are the result of multi-generational social engineering.

it's what Morpheus refers to as "The Matrix" - a world pulled over your eyes to keep you from seeing the real truth.  TV is crap.  Made solely for the promotion of propaganda.

Most of the muslim hate messages show on mainstream media after 9/11 were all written in the same handwriting - support for the war was at an extremely high percentage of the population - go figure.

Bullshit is all around you.

the Persian Academy—an institution established in 1935 to preserve the language, much like its French counterpart—noted that the English word airplane was creeping into the Iranian language. The academy's linguists successfully replaced it with the Persian word havapeyma. They have had less luck with helicopter

Today's rally makes sense.  Lots of weak shorts, still in contracting triangle.    If there is a breakout about 1329ish, Bulls get a chance for new high.   If it bounces off of 1329, we go for one more bounce off the walls of the triangle -- whee

Can someone please explain to me how Oil prices are dropping when supply is precariously teetering on the cliff. Were currently looking at 2mbpd oil shortfall with libya, but if Saud production falls then were looking at an additional 8mbpd or 10mbpd total.

How are prices dropping right now?

They're dropping because we're experiencing the pre-slaughter fleecing. You are now being taught to go short. When the time is right, the paper will stop being sold and the price will surge, just after you decide to short.

Dropping because there are a huge net longs right now. Way more than Cushing can hold, for example. Only an idiot would hold ALL of that until "the end". Remember, "Bears get fed, and Bulls get fed, but pigs get slaughtered".
