Heaven help us, women in pants suits! What's a horned up guy to do but blame the women for all that's wrong with the world? So much for civilization....

Women wearing trousers in public! It's about time something was done about it. Where will this lead to? Men wearing dresses and other such horrors. 40 lashes. It's extreme but what can you do?

The Sudan is one of OBL's strongholds.

Whattaya expect from a country that's wild about Islamic Wahabbism and performs clitorectomies on their women and then stitches them up with thorns from briar bushes?

Oh, yeah... And then there all that slavery and killin' of Christians that goes on there.

Lovely place, Sudan.

That would have nothing to do with what the Lord's Resistance Army (Christian Terrorists) did to Sudanese.

yeesh. A woman in pants is a crime. Thats the one thing that I've always wanted to ask. If women are the cause and wickedness of temptation because a man doesn't control himself, doesn't the fault lie with the man for not showing how "virtuous" he is by not falling to temptation in the first place? If a woman is walking around in nothing but her birthday suit, why doesn't the "holy man" resist and take responsibility for his own actions. These type of religious laws and such have no rights in any society.

In most places a person could get in trouble for NOT wearing trousers. But no, another backwards-assed country with Islamic Law. The UN ought to require member nations to comply with a least some semblance of civilized law before handing out WFP aid and such.

Outside world does not understand the deeply rooted cultures and unwritten rules that exists in these parts of the middle east and African third world countries. We make quick decision and resolvement based on what we know, and how our culture behaves. For Sudan, this is a perfect world, meaning, this is the way it's done for centuries, and we are not going to change it. Sudan is such a poor nation, and only thing they think about is where is our next meal coming from. I doubt any changes will happen in Sudan.

If more lawyers would get the "beat down" -I'm sure the world would be a better place.

good jorb: Lord's Resistance Army (Christian Terrorists) is funded by Sudan and it is hardly Christian. don't be fooled by the name.

anyway, it is this same mentality that people want governments to be tolerant to. Crazy.

Fine, but if they want the civilized world to feed them they need to start acting civilized.

So we're advocating police brutality against civil rights lawyers now? Nice to see you have your priorities in order and the clarity to see who is really at fault in this incident. I just hope you don't require the services of a public defender any time soon.

We shouldn't be so quick to criticize.

The Socialist-Islamist alliance. Never fails.

It's Ugandan, not Sudanese, and it's founded by a homegrown Ugandan whackjob. They're about as Christian as al-Qaeda is Islamic.

It's repugnant that such laws exist anywhere in the world (especially when pants are not exactly immoral dress), but where was the international outrage when al-Bashir was bombing villages in the south? Journos can drum up indignation for a whipping but not over mass slaughter?

LRA are Christians. Fact.

So what you're saying is that cruelty justifies cruelty, gotcha.

That's the way news media works and it sucks for all parties involved.

LRA are Christians. Fact

Thats like saying that Al-Qaeda are Islamic, techically true but they both pervert the holy texts for their own warped sadistic agendas. Islam is a religion of peace and any act of violence in its name is operating under a flawed interpretation and the same can be said for violence in the name of christianity, judaism, buddhism, hinduism or any otherwise respectable religion.

Religion is what you make of it; Islam isn't a "religion of peace" unless Muslims choose to make it so. This works the other way around, as well - Islam's foundations may be increadibly harsh and it's birth violent, but it does not have to be a religion of war, and it is not particularly helpful to label it as such. The majority of the worlds Muslims may be peaceful, but that isn't sufficient; they, and we non-Muslims as well, need to actively deny those that would use religion to evil ends. I fully support the categorization of Muslim extremists as false Muslims.

tried not say a word on this news about another muslim state. but see some said "islam is a religion of peace", i just have to say something.

The Quran says: "Fight those who believe not in Allah nor the Last Day, nor hold that forbidden which hath been forbidden by Allah and His Apostle, nor acknowledge the religion of Truth, until they pay the Jizya with willing submission, and feel themselves subdued".

Allah mandated the muslim or whoever believe in that book to fight the non-believer until they acknowledge Islam, submit to islam and feel themselves subdued to islam then must pay the Jizya too.

that is just one short quote from the book. try google the quote.

Islam is not tolerant of other religions including non-religion. to claim that it is a religion of peace is simply ...unbelievable for me.

what kind of peaceful people teach one another to battle just because the other doesn't believe in their religion?

thedeath,

Once again religion is what you make it. By insisting that Islam is by nature a religion of war you weaken the position of those who would make it otherwise. In other words, it matters not what it was but what it will become.

Next week, the war on terror will move to Sudan.

Next week, the war on terror will move to Sudan." Didn't Bill Clinton shoot a few missiles there once because OBL was hanging out there?

Once again religion is what you make it." Sorry, but I disagree. You are what religion makes you. Religion needs to go. Only then can we start talking like modern people should

OssanAmerica;

You need to get your fact straight. Since 1977, US resumed economic aid to Sudan and they become largest source of foreign aid and British followed in the 80's. Some 4.7 million people rely on humanitarian aid in Darfur, where the United Nations runs its largest aid operation in the world with the help of non-govenment organizations. However, they cannot act civilized due to the fact that 2.5 million have been driven from their homes during almost six years of ethnic and politically driven fighting in Sudan's west. Also with the high death count. This is more about survival for them and you talk about acting civilized?
