Let's assume we have a female president.

She is going to meet with a leader of a country which we do not have a good relationship with let's call it Youran.
The women of Youran are required to wear an eye patch over their left eye as a religious requirement. They have asked our president to honor and respect their religion and to wear the eye patch while in their country.
What should she do and why?

Uh let's see. The countries that have requirements like that are small middle eastern countries that the president would never go to in the first place. I can't imagine Obama ever personally going to Iran or Saudi Arabia. Buy if it did happen, then it's really up to her.

War! She would mobilize our nuclear arsenal and turn lowly Youran into a radioactive fission pit of an ocean! How dare she be forced to obey the laws of another country while there! That would be madness!

Lets say we are hosting a foreign country at the UN. This island nation is known for its people not wearing cloths. Do we.... Forget it!

Point is, she could do whatever she likes, including not go.

Meet with the leader in a nearby country bordering or near Youran where she wont have to wear clothing with respect to the local religion, but wont piss off anyone in the religion either by flat out defying the customs

If granny Clinton becomes the commander in chief of our armed forces, they won't seem to be as big a threat.

First off learn to read. And if you have a problem with people applying things to real life then you should get off this site. Why is this even in the politics forum if it's just "imagination."

If this is how you respond to a legitimate answer to your forum topic then you can expect people to "be so serious."

off topic you did, not sure where the confusion is coming from
I put in bold words I did not use and was not part of the topic, but rather assumption you made and things you inferred.

you wrote. I asked what she should do, "really up to her" is not an answer it's a non answer, you posted a response but did not answer the question, big difference.

Uh let's see. The countries that have requirements like that are small middle eastern countries that the president would never go to in the first place. I can't imagine Obama ever personally going to Iran or Saudi Arabia. Buy if it did happen, then it's really up to her.

not afraid at all, perhaps if you can't directly answer questions asked, don't offer any?

What I would say he, and I, are getting at is. Its not OUR choice "what should she do", it is HER choice.

If she wants to go to some crap country, she can defy local custom and I would say "all cool by me" or she can follow local custom and I would say, "all cool by me".

I understand that, but like the one solution was well thought out, guess that's what I was hoping for, was more of a problem solving responses if that makes sense.

Lets try it this way. If I were president, and I was asked to go to this dirt-hole country with my wife. My wife would never wear this crap, so if they were irritated by this, I would tell them, no-thanks. Come here if you want to talk to me.

You go to a couple try on diplomatic terms, then you respect the culture regardless of gender. So yes, she should wear the eye patch. After all, it's only a short period of time.

"wear this crap" "dirt hole country"

This mentality is exactly why so many countries dislike the US.

Dude, it's an eye patch they're being asked to wear. They're literally handicapping all females, any country that does that is "a dirt hole country."

Damn, if you're this afraid of people drawing real life political connections from your forum posts then you should get off the politics forum.

not afraid at all, perhaps if you can't directly answer questions asked, don't offer any?

What I would say he, and I, are getting at is. Its not OUR choice "what should she do", it is HER choice.

If she wants to go to some crap country, she can defy local custom and I would say "all cool by me" or she can follow local custom and I would say, "all cool by me".

I understand that, but like the one solution was well thought out, guess that's what I was hoping for, was more of a problem solving responses if that makes sense.

Lets try it this way. If I were president, and I was asked to go to this dirt-hole country with my wife. My wife would never wear this crap, so if they were irritated by this, I would tell them, no-thanks. Come here if you want to talk to me.

"wear this crap" "dirt hole country"

This mentality is exactly why so many countries dislike the US.

Same rhetoric comes out of the mouth of members of the Islamic countries regarding the USA. Can't we all just agree that it's OK to dislike eachother, and leave them alone?

I think the majority of countries we are discussing are dirt-holes. I think the "custom" of women wearing this nonsense is oppressive. That is opinion, and I am fine with it.

Dude, it's an eye patch they're being asked to wear. They're literally handicapping all females, any country that does that is "a dirt hole country."

She can still see from the other eye.

That'd be fine in a casual context, but when establishing diplomatic relations the last thing you want to do is insult the country's culture.

There are "cultures" that I wish we not encourage that sort of diplomatic relation with. For example. Iran has been a success on the diplomacy front. That does not mean the POTUS should go for a visit.

Ok... do you really not know the advantages of two eyes over one? Your response proves you can't justify that. Believe it or not, "dirt hole countries" do exist, and it's better for everyone to acknowledge which ones they are.
