    Isn't RIM Canadian? Why's she involved?

    And, in other news, a British girl in her 20's stripped down to her undergarments when a Emirati woman commented at a shopping mall that her low cut dress was too... low.

    Why do we think that we can do whatever we want when we go to foreign countries?

    I do wish Hilary Clinton would keep her nose out of things that don't concern her. I assume she'll be playing the 'national security' card to justify her involvement, she seems to use that a lot.

    Not just "we" - plenty of foreigners come over here to do whatever they want, main difference is we let them do so in most cases

    Indeed, some countries enforce "customs" because they have them, and they are more unified as a peoples.

    Other countries are more mixed and so dont really feel the need to uphold any customs they may have.

    Which is a shame in some ways, but it shouldnt work both ways.

    Either you let us come to your country and do as we do at home, or you things our way when you come to ours. Its common sense and fairness, not some sort of xenophobia or hatred.
