“A Houston, Texas woman says she was gang-raped by Halliburton/KBR coworkers in Baghdad, and the company and the U.S. government are covering up the incident.”
There are no words to describe my utter rage and disgust. Both at the actions of these… I refuse to call them ‘men’, and at the actions of Halliburton in conjunction with parts of our government.
You will say Muslims have done worse, and they have.
But we are not a 3rd world nation. We are not corrupted and oppressed by an extremist religion. And most importantly, we are not them. We are the United States of America, the most powerful and one of the freest nations on this Earth, and we should hold ourselves to a higher standard.
We have many great men and women in this country but unfortunately, we are now seeing a rise of a new kind of American. They are the cowards who still think they’re cowboys and frontiersmen. They think being American is about having power and control over others, when it is everything but. It is a disgrace to our wonderful nation that creatures such as these exist within our citizenry.
