If only this could happen in more rape situations.

Exactly. A richly-deserved walloping.

If only that would happen more often in these cases. He´ll serve a pretty long time in prison I guess. And he´ll get the butt and will be sent back to Pakistan.

She's lucky SHE didn't get arrested. The UAE has been known to arrest rape victims.

But maybe the authorities aren't stupid enough to try to arrest a US servicemember under such circumstances.

Good for her!

Of course, this probably won't get much air time in the USA. The next time one of our service members does something wrong in Japan, though, will be leading news for a week... Not that I am saying that this story makes our transgressions okay.

The guy wanted to be between her thighs - just not that way. He's lucky she didn't snap his neck.

DocLightning.

I agree Muslim countries seem to have an issue with blaming he female victim in such cases, African Islamic nations seem to be the worse for it.

But at least we can assume that she falls under the status of forces agreement that would cover US personnel in the UAE. That probably Ives her some legal protections from being stoned for unmarked sex.

I thought 'Islamic justice' didn't look kindly upon a Muslim initiating sex with a non-Muslim?

I think that's mostly because the Japanese (and in particular those in Okinawa) are highly sensitized to any such misconduct.

Like I said, not that this thing in Dubai makes those things in Japan okay. Just pointing out how this story probably won't get much air time in the USA.

Right, but I think the American media is reacting to the reaction of the Japanese. I imagine if one looks closely it's not too hard to find similar misconduct in other offshore areas where US soldiers are garrisoned, but the difference is the locals there tolerate it (even in cases where perhaps they should not).

And what does this have anything to do with a kick-ass beating in Dubai by an awesome sailor?

Keep in mind that, with the exceptions of the surrounding areas in Misawa, Yokosuka, and Okinawa, the US forces are pretty well respected here. (except for at bars. Can't tell u how many times I've seen a serviceman get in a fight with someone at a bar   )

More plausibly a US military female would arrest the UAE!

I think foreigners do not need permit to drink in Dubai.

While in Dubai they don´t like to see people drinking in public places, one can get alcoholic drinks in the hotels and nightclubs. I think there are also shops, where one can get alcoholic drinks to be drunk in private.

Visitors to and/or residents of Dubai can purchase alcohol in restaurants and in hotels without a licence but if they wish to purchase from a shop they will need to obtain a licence. The licence needs to be renewed annually and is not available to Muslims. Of course, not having a licence does not prevent Muslims obtaining alcohol through "friends" that do or from drinking in a restaurant or hotel.

From the Dubai Code of Conduct published by the Executive Council of the Government of Dubai:

Quote:

2. Substance abuse:

The consumption of alcohol as well as any other drug or psychotropic substance is strictly prohibited in Islam and is punishable by law. Due to the large diversity of cultures and nationalities present in Dubai, alcohol consumption is closely regulated.

2.1. Drugs:

Holding, consuming, buying or selling any kind of drug - in any quantity - as well as being tested positive to any drug by the authorities in the UAE is considered a crime.

2.2. Alcohol consumption:

Alcohol consumption shall be confined to designated areas (i.e. licensed restaurants and venues that serve alcohol to their clients). Being caught under the effect of alcohol outside these places (even in light doses) can lead to a fine or incarceration.

2.3. Driving and alcohol:

The UAE has adopted a zero-tolerance policy in terms of driving under the effect of alcohol. Being caught driving with even the smallest dose of alcohol can lead to a fine, incarceration or deportation.

2.4. Purchasing alcohol:

Buying and selling alcohol is controlled by very strict laws. Alcohol is exclusively sold by specialised licensed stores. It can only be bought by holders of an alcohol-purchasing license (this license is only attainable by non-Muslims). Buyers shall respect the local culture by carrying their alcohol in paper bags such that it cannot be seen.

Penalties.

Alcohol consumption outside designated areas: Fine or jail
Buying alcohol without an alcohol licence: Fine or jail
Driving under the effect of alcohol or any other drug: Fine, jail and/or deportation - car confiscation
