The US has condemned the arrests of 26 gay men during a raid on a party at a hotel in the United Arab Emirates earlier this month.
Washington also warned the UAE that any attempt to administer hormone or psychological treatment would break international law.
Police launched on Tuesday disciplinary proceedings against an officer who published photos taken during the raid, but did not respond to the criticism.
Homosexuality is illegal in the UAE.
Police arrested 22 UAE men, one Indian, and three Arabs from neighbouring states at a hotel in Ghantut in the emirate of Abu Dhabi, the Interior Ministry said on Saturday.
The authorities said 12 of the men had been dressed in women’s clothes and make-up in preparation for a gay wedding. [source]
[laugh out load]
Lets put aside these arrests for a moment, there is a bigger punchline here: get this, the US (giggle) no really, the US is lecturing others on breaking international law! Are you laughing as loud as I am? Let me repeat for you nay-sayers: THE UNITED STATES IS LECTURING OTHERS ON INTERNATIONAL LAW…digest the gravity of this statement for a moment if you will.
Oh Guantanamo, Abu Ghreib, Iraq, where have you gone?
When even the Geneva convention becomes toilet paper and UN resolutions cheap currency. Is the blindfold on Lady Justice wrapped to tight these days?
I’ll say one thing, this administration must have balls the size of Texas to say these kinds of things out loud.
But what a tiring charade this world has become.
