Another, wonderful, Middle Eastern country.

She's being punished for being in a car with a man she wasn't related to, and for trying to use the media to get her sentence changed?

I'm not sure if that's better or worse than being punished for being raped.

Either way... does anyone see the need to stop being so dependent on oil?

I do, why can't the stupid government?

I am no economist, so don't really understand the intricacies of it all but globally speaking do we NEED to be dependent on something, whether it is oil, gold, whatever?

If we were less dependant on oil, suddenly human rights violations would stop and women would have equality in the world? I doubt it.

I think it is a good move that the men who raped her were actually punished for a change, while they have the death penalty way too many people get off with no punishment.

No, I mean would the world economy go down the tubes if we aren't dependent on something as basic as oil? I guess that is for another thread.

I agree - this really has nothing to do with our dependency on oil and everything to do with the middle eastern mentality toward women.

All I meant was that the rich people who control the country are wealthy because of oil. If we didn't use so much of it, they'd have less income, less power, and maybe some more moderate voices could be heard in their country.

It is still a female inequality issue not a money issue when it comes to the middle East.

As I said before, it is a great move that the 'rich oil men' were jailed for raping her

its saudi, that how they deal with women, Most women are not even allowed to drive there. But at least i guess she was not sent to death like many of the women that get raped.

They got what, 2-5 years? While she gets 200 lashes and 6 months? I think their punishment is almost better. I would bet 200 lashes could almost kill a person, especially a young girl.

hmm,I think that if we did not need there oil, stories like this would not even make the news, Look how long it took for darfur started coming into the news.

for the most part we only care casue they have something we need.

They are very up over there. I read a book by a lady who had spent a year with a family and man oh man was it messed up. There was a young girl who was raped and when she told she was beaten and was the one at fault. The man who tricked her (12 years old) was married with children and was not to blame.

It is hard to believe that a US ally, Saudi Arabia, can be aligned with us and yet subject a 19yo girl to 200 LASHES AND a prison term for speaking to the media about her attack!!!!

But I applaud that BRAVE young woman for speaking out, despite the consequences Such incredible courage in unbelievably despicable circumstances makes me feel so humble.

I also say a BIG THANK YOU to those law makers in our own land who have allowed us American women to enjoy our rightful positions as full-fledged American citizens.

That said, i wonder if there is some way that we, as Americans, can possibly influence the UAE to honor women's rights...any suggestions???

I think yes you are allied with Saudi Arabia - but that's only because of the oil. Oh, and Saudi Arabia buys lots of weapons from you.
