UH No... there a very clear boundries- and arbitrary isn't one of them 8^) Saudi Arabia falls within Asia due to it's seperation from Africa by a body of water and by it's seperation from Europe by several Asian nations.
You can call it
Asia- middle east are the same. Near east, middle east, far east are all different. It's not a matter of who's right or who's wrong - just who wants
Not a matter of pig headed- a matter of being correct. Note the American press (which is whole heartedly left wing) isn't apologizing for lying about what happened in (or rather what didn't happen) in New Orleans.. they knew they weren't doing proper research- no verification, no direct quotes from identifiable resources etc. Thier hatred for Bush was the reason they tried to pull that hatchet jo do they back off from their actions? Hell no! They blame the govt for the lack of info! And by extention - Bush. The survivors blame the local officials- they were the ones required by law to respond and refused to do so! The gross exaggerations and outright lies are now "irrefutable" proof overseas- the damage is done! It's not a matter of definition it's a matter of the truth!
