'The Worst of the Worst' - By James Traub

'The Worst of the Worst' - By James Traub | Mondo Cookies | Scoop.it
Anne Guion's insight:

Sahara occidental : Obama se plie au plan d'autonomie marocain. James Traub : "What is confounding about Western Sahara is not the question of where justice lies. The Security Council endorsed the referendum plan and established a mission, called Minurso, in order to put it into effect. Morocco stalled for years, and in 2003, James Baker, the U.N. secretary-general's special envoy, came up with yet another plan which gave the Moroccans a much better chance of winning the referendum. The Security Council endorsed that plan as well, but Morocco flatly refused to stage a vote for independence, even one it might win.

This rank colonial injustice by a former victim of colonialism is reminiscent of Indonesia's repression of East Timor, save that in 1999 the Indonesians allowed a referendum on independence to go forward -- and then unleashed its thugs when it became clear the vote was going the wrong way. There is every reason to believe that Morocco would commit similar atrocities rather than surrender the region."

Maybe Saudi Men Shouldn't Be Driving

Maybe Saudi Men Shouldn't Be Driving | Mondo Cookies | Scoop.it
Anne Guion's insight:

Saudi Arabia has the highest accident-related death toll among high-income countries.A 2013 study by the Kingdom's General Directorate of Traffic found that 19 people die per day in traffic-related fatalities in Saudi Arabia, predicting that if current rates continue, by 2030, 4 million people will die annually in a car accident there.

(...)Saudi Arabia has a pretty well-registered case of reckless driving, affected by what commentators call "tufush," a national boredom among the country's young men that stems from chronic unemployment the constraints of ultraconservative social mores. This boredom has reportedlyspawned a thriving underground car culture, in which wealthier men drag race high-end cars and lower-class men "drift" cars through traffic. The scene has led observers to compare the streets of Saudi Arabia to a mix of Death Race and The Fast and the Furious
