    ere's the only thing -- Iran is a major client of Russia. I doubt Putin's going to look kindly on us bombing his customer back to the stone age.
    Russia would not start a war over Iran, nor would they move to defend them militarily. It doesn't matter how offended Putin gets, he's in no position to start a conventional war over anything, much less Iran's lunatic saber-rattling.

    They wouldn't start a war over it. I'm thinking more along the lines of what does he do when American missiles are flying in his general direction.

The inclusion was due to the Kuwait government's repeated failure to tackle the problem. Migrant workers were often subject to poor housing, severe beatings, confiscation of passports, and extremely long hours with little or no wages. Migrant workers were also placed under the sponsor system which puts them under the mercy of their employers restricting their movement which has been widely described as "modern day slavery".

    Didn't say it was democratic nor did I defend its human rights practices, but Iraq's international behavior still put it in a league below Kuwait in my book...

    i think we can all understand going after those who deemed it necessary to gun down protesters.. and really, it could be much worse than detaining them and giving trials... they could have acted like Ghaddafis black thugs and just gunned them down.

    but meh, it's all good... people looking for racism will find it, despite any other factors involved in an issue.

    Kinda confusing tho isn't it? So you are now advocating that because some blacks fought for Ghaddafis, that all are guilty? I guess you feel then that "all" Muslims should have to undergo cavity searches at our airports? I mean aren't they responsible for over 90% of the terrorist attacks around the world ?
