I don't know why I thought that having a read around the interwebs of Omani blogs was a good idea at the time, but now that I'm done, someone's definitely going to have to pay for the frog in the throat experience.
I'm specifically talking about those who commented on the recent Tier 3 drama that had snowballed recently when the US Foreign whatserface filed a report classifying Oman's human rights track record in a less than honorable position, and has recieved admirably responsive retorts in the local media (I know, shocking) and around the rice dishes in majlises all around the country.
Naturally, however, there were a few who chose against seeing the larger picture and chose to blindly agree with the report solely because of it's soundbite-iness, and refusing to look at the debacles context within the larger picture.
I will not comment on the topic myself because I won't say anything that hasn't been said before, but I will say this to those who're less enthusiastic about condemning the report or questioning it's validity. Just shut up. Your arguments are ill informed and your politics are severely distorted.
