Fencing off democracy

Do humans get any more retarded than the Saudis?

"Another Saudi concern has to do with the having a democratic country on its eastern border. The Saudi government, anchored in a combination of theocracy and autocracy, is concerned that the Iraqi democratic virus might infect Saudi political culture. To isolate itself from Iraq, Saudi Arabia has signed a $1 billion contract with the European defense company EADS, for the construction of a 900-kilometer [562-mile] fence."

Too bad the fence won't keep the suicide bombers (and recruiters and funders) inside KSA and out of Iraq!

Thanks gilgamesh for the link.
