Looks more to me like YOU are the one with the brown shirt, the one that can’t be questioned.

I think the small detail you are missing Bruce, is that you are in fact a fascist.

Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.

-President Barack Obama, 1st Inaugural address

Ah how sweet it is when you think you can just discount the suffering of a group of people then feel all superior and anyone reporting that suffering is full of shit and must prove it. I gave you the links but as I expected, you would discount them.
This was not a question of credibility because I NEVER claimed it as my story but in your mind anything coming from me must be not only suspect but false. What's your defense now? Ah yeah, Homy don't play that! that's all you can come up with.
You say you asked questions but you didn't , because you already had made up your mind, remeber this?

Why am I not surprised that you are running off "half cocked" again?

Bruce, if you're feeling half cocked, there is nothing like a Feel The Love penis implant. Personally delivered by me, it is first inserted as a suppository.

I know that but this group of people were hired by a Kuwaiti company that is a KBR subcontractor. In essence WE paid for this shit which Bruce does not seem to understand.

Prof, excuse me, Herr Goebbels since you have become a mind reader as well as the semiofficial mouthpiece of the extreme left you will probably know what I am thinking, and that would go double on the weekends.
You first piece gave ONE link, and it was full of speculation. Do you deny that? If so, no sense in going any farther.
I’m glad that you realize that most anything you link to is suspect, as often it is. Reports that guess and point at things without a solid background are always suspect, or do you have trouble understanding that? Reports from Moveon.Org are suspect as are a number of other sites that have a clear and present agenda.
NOW as to having a defense, why would I need one? I asked a question, and you FINALLY were able to answer it, there is NO NEED to defend that, Herr Gobbles.
The company involved was a Kuwaiti company was it not? Questions were raised by AMERICAN sub contractors were they not? How are you going to hang that on the US, since there is apparently no question in your mind that this is automatically OUR fault, or should I say Bush’s fault?
There is no apparent indication that these people were mistreated other than being kidnapped. Nowhere did anyone say they were whipped, beaten, underfed, or anything else. That part was and apparently still is your personal hang up and you still have to prove it. I cannot argue that they APPARENTLY were kidnapped, but if workers were needed, workers work, slaves barely shuffle. It makes little sense to mistreat them unless you plan on killing them afterwards. Got any proof of that?
