And they've just been voted back to the head of the Human Rights Council..

The one place that might actually benefit from regime change, but they're 'allies' so get to behave like animals and we've got to like them :roll:

It is Sunday in Saudi. Does Enda Kenny intend to attend Mass? If so, where?

Why do the Irish Syria Solidarity Campaign/SF/PBP/AA not picket the Saudi Embassy? Do they agree with beheding Asian women after raping them?

Well if Enda is setting up a tribunal of inquiry or commissioning an independent inquiry, I've every confidence he'll get to the bottom of Saudi human rights abuses.

There's two basic ways of dealing with these sort of people. One is to shun them entirely, not really viable here for obvious reasons, and make them international outcasts. Problem with that plan is there no evidence it works.

Also possible is to keep channels open and try to persuade them over a long tedious term that it might be a good idea to modify and change.

Given the two choices I feel the latter is more likely to work eventually, but not any time soon. Isolationism has never produced anything but a backlash from these regimes. The more you shout and scream the more defensive they will be.

Saudi is a tough nut (nutters?) to crack. But isolating them and not speaking will likely make them even more determined to persist in the 12th Century.

Saudi will change like all traditional societies over a long term. Give them a few decades of engagement with the world. Not fast enough obviously. But that's reality.
