Saudi Arabia's Abusive Relationship With Other Countries

Sweden provides an example of how Saudi Arabia beats the politically correct into a submission. The AFP reports that in response to Sweden's Foreign Minister's recent comments about Saudi Arabia being a "dictatorship" that violated women's rights and whipped bloggers, the Saudi's withdrew their ambassador, and have accused Sweden of being insensitive to Sharia and Islam. Of course, the gist of the comments are true (Saudi Arabia is not technically a"dictatorship" because it is ruled by a monarch, but otherwise the comments are spot on). However, like the partner in an abusive relationship, Saudi Arabia immediately threatened to leave and guilted  Sweden into backing down.

How pathetic.
