Why does any gov. have people in these hellholes, are they just stupid? Nevermind..answered myself
Yes you did. Unfortunately such obvious answers are completely unfathomable in certain circles.
Yikes! A foolish country for sure that still has its people in Yemen.
Why are governments so stupid as to send ambassadors to Islamic hellholes? Wait...take a look at the photo of the ambassador...stupidity compounded...
Do we still have troops in Yemen? Who knows ...
U.S. escalates clandestine war in Yemen
May 16, 2012
Operating from a Yemeni base, at least 20 U.S. special operations troops have used satellite imagery, drone video, eavesdropping systems and other technical means to help pinpoint targets for an offensive that intensified this week, said U.S. and Yemeni officials who asked not to be identified talking about the sensitive operation.
Kind of like us sending a female ambassador to Egypt? Or a gay ambassador to a devoutly Catholic country? Democrats love rubbing their disdain in other countries faces. Then they wonder why much of the world hates us.
We didn’t allow much interaction with Communists behind the Iron Curtain during the Cold War. I don’t see interactions with Islamics much differently.
“Democrats love rubbing their disdain in other countries faces. Then they wonder why much of the world hates us.”
Those were my thoughts exactly.
Thanks for info. I remember now.
I think the basic definition is in order
Islamic society = Hellhole.
Indonesia. Lots of isolated islands where people don’t really know mad mo and his bad ways.
Saudi. Still a hell hole. Just a clean white rich controlled one
Iran. Not really Islamic. Just run by islamonazis
Can’t think of any others
And Egypt is rapidly on the way of becoming one Very sad
Beirut , Lebanon was once called ‘ Paris by the sea ‘
In summary. Islamic societies all degenerate into roving bands of psychotic pedophilic rapist thugs with M16s on pickups
Malaysia - although that's because large Chinese and Indian minorities over-perform economically, the British left behind a justice system and a rule of law that is still adhered to in preference to sharia law, and militant forms of Islam have only gained a small foothold so far.
We are paying to enforce the Saudi border with Yemen at the same time that the unofficial Prez order has come down to NOT enforce our own with Mexico.
If there is a historical precedent for that then I’m all ears.
Closest thing I can think of was after the earthquake we helped seal the border between Haiti and Dominican Republic. Ironic to say the least.
Off the subject, by barely.
A simple question - Why do western countries assign women diplomats to Muslin countries? Is there no common sense in the world anymore?
Why are governments so stupid as to send ambassadors to Islamic hellholes?
And they send a woman to a scuzzlim country. Idiots!
