    I was reading that the US is threatening to withdraw all foreign aid to Uganda if it passed a bill that would sentence gays to death for being gay.

    Too bad they are not a country like Saudia Arabia or the Sudan, or Yemen who also have similar laws. It sure sucks not being Muslim.

    This is a case of democracy being used where democracy should not be used. Democracy should never be used where the decision being made only affects a certain portion of the population.
    So for example decisions about what to do with foreigners, prisoners, particular ethnic groups etc should never be handled democratically.

    They must not have studied the rules for democracy handbook.

    So as a democracy, what should we do about it? How should we impose our will on another democracy that don't play by our rules?

    In 2011, Anthony Weiner tried to pass a bill that would stop foreign aid to Saudia Arabia on the grounds that they export terrorists. Too bad he cared nothing about the gays.

    Anthony is not the sharpest tack, in case anyone now wonders after his exploits on the internet. When Saudia Arabia tells the US to jump, Obama and company ask how high? It's all about the oil.
