Saudi Arabia Could Face Sanctions Over Human Trafficking

The U.S. State Department has accused Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Qatar and the United Arab Emirates of failing to combat human trafficking. Other nations were also cited in the report, but the criticism of these four Middle Eastern nations is significant because all are considered strategic allies and all four could face U.S. sanctions.

Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice accurately described human trafficking as a modern form of slavery. Addressing this world-wide problem is a moral imperative and an essential component to promoting democracy. No nation that tolerates human trafficking can be considered a “free” nation. And it’s a positive step that even our so-called essential allies in the Middle East are not immune to rebuke.

Hopefully the State Department will not let this issue rest with harsh words but will exercise its imperative to apply sanctions.

The US has lost too much credibility to ride the high horse of "protector of human rights." This may play well in Kansas City, but the real world is concerned about the US descent into lawlessness in the Middle East. See:

How long have you people been among the propagandist for the old socialist party. As the countries in the Middle East ascend the ladder of Democracy, the lunatic fanatic fringe of Islam will have fewer places to hide and eventually will fade into history. I only wish you people had the guts to join the Jihad and vanish with them. You people amaze me with your naive thinking, but wait, that would give you credit for having a thought process. Don
