Somebody is torn, yes in an emotional tizzy about whether tis more noble to make some point against the political capital of Formula One racing, vis a vis its determination to procede this weekend against the turmoil of a continuing 'Arab Spring' in that chaotic nation. I put it bluntly.
Let me be blunt. Your argument is 'we are the world' politics. You are wanting consumer economic things to do the political. It doesn't. It's just self-congratulatory conspicuous politically correct consumption.
Here's the analogy. There is nothing you can say about the political capital of F1 that doesn't apply double to The America's Cup in yachting. So lets just imagine that you are a British peer writing to your cronies in 1901 whether or not it would be fair to America's Negroes if you were to attend the event that season. As if it mattered.
It doesn't. If you're not going to put military boots on the ground to overthrow the tyrant, everything else is just hot air. Drop the pretense. Enjoy the show.
