Bob, part of it is to show respect to the native peoples of the region. You can't just take away their livelihood because we don't like what they do. We'll get alot further toward ending this practice by showing respect to the native peoples.
I can understand. We've taken their land and told them, in many cases that parts of their culture is wrong because it's not based on Euro-centric standards. So much respect is on order. Bob says: "Gud anser, RD!"
