GOP Morals:Halliburton Knowingly Poisoned Troops & Poor Kids Used to Test Pesticides On
If these 2 things do not make you realize that the Republican party is a pus-oozing bag of criminals and hypocrites, then I don't know what will: Troops and civilians at a US military base in Iraq were exposed to contaminated water last yr and employees for the responsible contractor, Halliburton, couldn't get their company to inform camp residents, according to interviews and internal company documents. The level of contamination was roughly 2x the normal contamination of untreated water from the Euphrates River." Well, why the hell shouldn't Halliburton knowingly serve contaminated water to our troops in Iraq? The EPA has tested pesticides on poor children against their will, so why should soldiers fighting in a war have any protections and rights, either? But isn't it strange that the military had no problems providing our troops w/contaminate free H2O before Halliburton took that responsibility over? Oh that's right... the military doesn't have a profit margin for providing water to our troops.
