    deployed decoy
    Since it is going to be banned in most western states, I am hoping to see real fireworks here in Kuwait. You know Iran popping off a 8Kt ‘test’ flight, shot down over Kuwait city on an trajectory towards Mecca with US missiles and the flash visible for 30 miles. This will serve many purposes. First the President will not need to support slavery in Kuwait this September just before the election, because Kuwait will be a glass field. The air quality will actually improve in Kuwait due to no toxic stuff blowing around from the sand (this information is available through FOIA, but not released to the VA, Walter Reed or troops on the ground. The EU will then be forced to either defend a new oil supply themselves, from Iran (or other not so politically correct locations). Thus the 100s of Billions the US spends now defending the EU oil supply in Kuwait will free up just maybe enough money to use on the soon to be approved superfund to rebuild cedar sided trophy homes in Colorado. I wait to see the lawsuits from the people in CO (or federal fire fighters not authorized to perform structure firefighting under federal law) with health problems aggravated due to toxic material in the smoke blowing into cities from the former trophy homes.

    Look it up Mod. The US State Dept 2012 TIP report cmae out about 10 days ago. Kuwait made the Tier3 list again. as a Tier3 slave state it is a violation of federal law to give these people water. Well it is OK (on the White House press release page) since the president waived Kuwait and Saudi in Sept 2011 (911) perfect... I only aske since Nr Korea, Iran and Cuba are also Tier3 states, why we are not in tosoe countries protecting their right to keep and abuse humans... Of for that matter why a Latino can walk into the USA and stay a life time. But a Fil girl cant get her sister in the USA to help care for her sick American husband and has to go on LWOP pay to act as care giver... The air quality in Kuwait was documented as exceeding all military annual exposure limits years ago. stuff that will kill people over a not very long term... As for law suits, check out CA dude. they sue to pervent and halt controlled burns all the time. many times the uncontrolled burn that then occures takes out 100,000s of acres... Federal fire fighters are prented under federal law for going closer than the 'drip ring' around a structure. Tell that to the masses that were clearing brush around trophy homes while the next door toxic smoke house burned...

    Any one can file any lawsuit they want. That does not mean it goes any where. And what does California have to due with air pollution in Kuwait? Or is your writing very confusing? Please do not attemopt to write for Leno. Give me a cite that says it is a crime to give "these people" water. One reason why a latino might spend a lifetime as an illegal in the US is because it is very difficult to patrol the entire border and track these people. Yes, I agree they do not belong here. maybe more money for the agency involved in patrolling the border would help.

  • The whole truth
    deployed decoy
    http://kuwait.usembassy.gov/policy-news/tip-reports.html has the 2012 TIP report. The State Dept has the worldwide report and laws. On the White House Press release or Memo page is the Sept 2011 (911) waiver the President signed allowing the USA to provide anything to Saudi or Kuwai, say weapons used to surpress the Arab Springs. Look it all up, be amazed your presidet supports the slave trade for cheap oil. He sure is not arming Nr Korea or Iran, other TIP Tier3 states, wonder why. Tree huggers sue in CA to stop controlled burns, all the bad air that would be produced you know. Yet the DoD will not release without a formal FOIA requests, USCHPPM studies on the air in Kuwait killing American otherwise healthy Soldiers... Think Agent Orange, but again they will almost all be dead before those law suits and VA get going... Then think about the 25+ times the USA has used our VETO at the UN to not formally slam Isreal as a terror state and pretend Russa is the bad guy in Syria this year. None of this is really party specific. It is just more proof this country is going down hard sooner than later.

  • The Real Truth
    Moderate
    First, you only wrote a very small piece of the article concerning the slave labor. The slave labor is not official government policy. It does not appear to be unofficial government policy. These are private people who set gross prices for immigration documents, travel, etc. There are also those who beat their maids and other gross items.However, it is official Kuwaiti policy to prosecute these people who make slaves of others. The problem is that the Kuwaiti laws are not strict enough and are not enforced properly. The truth is so much different from the nonsense you wrote implying that the Kuwaiti government enslaves people. By the way, the US also suffers from some people enslaving others. Hope you do not think the US government supports slavery. Others, please read the article cited

  • No Govt in Kuwait
    deployed decoy
    Dude again you fail to grasp the whole truth. The Amir - a god like figure appointed because of who his daddies daddy was. Has fired the entire Kuwait congress 3 or 4 times in as many years. He holds 51% of the vote. thus he is the only government in Kuwait. If he wanted to end the slave trade he could. Problem is these folks have used slaves since recorded time began. Jefferson knew this and that is the reason he read their book. Know everything about the enemy was his thinking. I can buy 3 Bengali slaves for under $2000 and if I paid them, pay them $100 a month. Course Filipinos come with education and I could only buy 2 of them and would have to pay them $25 or $50 more a month… Indian Engineers go for under $600 a month, and most of them pull pipe in the refineries. So I offer this. Immediately the USA place wage restrictions on all Americans. Fed cap put at $1500 a year. Folks working on shore oil rigs $1200 a year and congress works for food. Since we do not have a functioning government either. The USA supplies weapons (or did so in the not very recent past) to most of the countries you list as weapon suppliers to destroy Israel. Heck the USA gave them tactical nucs long ago. As you say a small country the fallout will take them all out. I never read the 1984 book. I did listen to BBC radio this year that noted the USA vetoed 25 UN Regulations against Israel in the last few years and noted the US Congress voting record this year that Congress ordered the US UN advisor to vote against any and all UN resolutions that condemn the terror state of Israel. Just ask yourself why the USA spends Billions a day with 3 combat brigades that left Iraq and are sitting in Kuwait. I am sure it has nothing to do with oil. So the only logical answer is the US condones the Arabs right to keep and bear slaves.

    No dude, you are writing this nonsense for some reason that I cannot fathom. It is off the wall. G-d figure? Give me a cite for this. He fired the congress 3-4 times in 3-4 years. Give me a cite. Your last cite did not support your assertions. He holds 51% of the votes? This is not a corporation, but a country. Cite your source. From what I gather you could buy slaves. That does not make it government sponsored.---The rest of your stuff about the US is pure baloney.The US gave tactical nukes to Iran, Syria, and another country? Sounds like your fantasy or nightmare. Cite your source.---Of course the US will not allow the Muslim backed countries to cite Israel as a terrorist state. It isn't. It is the Muslim states in the mid east that are trying to destroy Israel. I suggest you read 1984 by George Orwell. It is very easy reading, but very deep. It is a negative reaction to Stalin.

    read the arabtimesonline or if that is too radical for you try BBC or AlGazir. In 2009 the Amir fired the entire Kuwait congress. I should note that was the very first time women could run for office in this country. The next congress was anointed by his royal highness. in Feb 12 they held elections... people who wanted change won. The sitting congress demanded to dig into all the BILLIONS that have been moved out of the country in gthe last few years by uncles and freinds of his god like ruler. So The Amir disolved congress for 30 days. Ramadon would have started on the 31 day, effectivly no congress for 60 days. Then they all resigned. Instead of accepting this his god like manner terimated the sitting congress. now these same people are arguing to put the 2009 congress back in session because the constatution was violated. not going to happen. and even if it did. the Amire holds 51% of the vote and congress is just a patcy. His brothers and uncles are all the ministers anyway. a full 40% of the people in this country who have lived on the land since time began do not even get a birth Cert and sure cant vote becasue they are not DNA connected to this stuck in the midddle ages crap. It is not a country it is a "hereditary emirate ruled by the Al Sabah family" Quote from the US State Dept. I never said the US gve Nucs to Iran, we gave them to Isrial. The US will not allow the rest of the world (not muslim states) to call Isrial what it is, a terror and TIP Tier-3 state. But since congress ordered the country be treated as a freind the State Dept does not take it to TIP Tier3 status.

    "The USA supplies weapons (or did so in the not very recent past) to most of the countries you list as weapon suppliers to destroy Israel. Heck the USA gave them tactical nucs long ago." This is your quote. I admit I have difficulties understanding your writing, but this is pretty clear. Your cite is grossly unclear. Show me.Show me where the Amir holds 51% of the vote. Again you sound like the terror with the use of your cars. I have shown why Israel is not the terror state. Repeating the same nonsense does not make it a terror state.

    "hereditary emirate ruled by the Al Sabah family" Quote from the US State Dept. What part of the official USA State Dept quote gets around the Amir holding 99% of the vote? If you would have read just a few of the arabtimesonline stories Saturday (the day I assume you wrot the above) things would be hard for even you to dispute... But again we are only talking about Kuwait. Not Saudi, that the Defense Dept forgot to breif and obtain legal authorization from congress to sell Saudi F35 fighters. I just hope they use these to wipe both Bahrain (arab spring) and Israel off the map. Two problems solved. Next up Iran nucing Kuwait for being a slave state.

    Please google the American Embassy in Kuwait. Under the news and events tab, please read the offical US State Dept TIP report for Kuwait. If this is boring, read the one for Saudi, or google the US Federal Law that directs these annual reports. The law is simple. The USA cannot provide anything to a Tier 3 listed country. Expect (google this on tghe White House home page), the sitting president can waive said law for the greater good. Now both parties have waived this law. I just had a bit more hope Americas first black president would not openly support the slave trade for oil...

    Just because the tree huggers sue, it does not mean they get results. Your statement is too vague to have value. You have got to be kidding about Israel. It is a very small State (less than 10 Million people surrounded by hostile Muslims (over 100 million) bent on Israel's destruction. Listen to the Iran rants. Saudi Arabia , Iran, and Syria supply weapons to the terrorists who kill innocent Israeli citizens. Even many of the Arab israelies are hostile to Israel. The Muslims started the 1948, 1956, 1967, and 1973 wars. After they lose the wars they want the Israeli captured lands back. Your comments about israeli terrorism come straight from the newspeak language in the book 1984.

  • Don't know about CO
    Linda
    I don't know about Colorado, but if you start a fire, you are responsible for the costs, even if accidental. So hope you have good homeowners. We just had a good sized fire that burned 4 homes and had over 100 people evacuated. The notice is the paper was to contact Farm Bureau. The fire was an accident, but the guys homeowners is on the hook up to his coverage. If the coverage doesn't cover replacing the 4 homes and the evacuation costs (hotel, clothes, etc), not to mention the cost of the fire fighters, the most likely will get sued for the cost. A judgement will be filed against him and he will fire bankrupcy. ......................I talked to a guy who once started a fire, the government sent him a bill for $1.3 million.................in Colorado, if the fire was deliberately set, they could get someone for Manslaughter, it's been done before..............So yes, you don't have to be wronged to file a lawsuit, but lawsuits will most likely be filed and some will win.
