In this news article released by KHOU in Houston, TX, it has been learned that troops have had to resort to theft from Kellogg, Brown, and Root (KBR) in order to attain safe drinking water. It tunrs out that the subsidiary of Dick Cheney's old company, Halliburton, has been hording water when they're tasked with the responsibility of distributing water to troops.
This is the same company that is responsible for faulty wiring that has been killing troops, and sanitizing water supplies so that the troops can have clean water for drinking, cooking, and showering. Instead, troops are constantly worried about pathogens and insect larvae in their water supply.
While troops endure daily temperatures over 120 F, dysentery, nausea, vomiting, and electrocution, KBR executives continue to rake in cash by the boatload. Contractors now outnumber troops by about 5 to 1.They have the luxury of leaving employers like Xe (formerly Blackwater USA), KBR, Halliburton, and Triple Canopy, but troops are bound by military law and enjoy no such luxury.
Where is the outrage from right wing blowhards like Sean Hannity, Rush Limbaugh, Jim Quinn and Rose Tennent, and Glenn Beck? Where are you when your troops need you Neil Boortz? Where is your sense of patriotism Billy Cunningham, Joseph Farah, and Michele Malkin? Why don't you care about the suffering of our troops, Bill O'Reilly? Where are all the voices of "conservative" radio when American troops are dying from corporate negligence?
I know you all have books to sell, SUVs, condos, and yachts to afford, so you'd rather saw off your own testicles with a butter knife than rat out your corporate sponsors. But when is enough enough? When will you stop hiding behind the safety of your golden microphones and speak out about the evils of your own party and corporate interests? When will you finally become decent human beings, and start calling a spade a spade? Do you still wonder why the rest of the country is leaving your ranks? Is it any wonder why you had your asses handed to you last November?
If there really is a hell, there's a special place there waiting for all of you. You are all cowards and disgrace not only America, but the human race as well.
By the way, Sean, we're still waiting for your water-boarding to take place. Watch Sean get pwned by Charles Grodin in the clip below:
It's almost been a month now, Sean. What's the matter - are you scared, or are you just not patriotic?
Watch the clip below from "Iraq For Sale." If it doesn't anger you, you're not human.
