I haven’t ever posted in the Pit, because in general I don’t like being abused and called an asshat, but we all have to be deflowered eventually, right?
:dons cup and hardhat:
More than a decade after we ‘liberated’ Kuwait, there is one female MP, and she got in through the back door, not by being elected. Will someone please explain to me why we bothered to liberate this backward-ass, medeival country? How many tens of thousands of people have died for this decision? Why should a single life be lost to ‘rescue’ a country whose values are diametrically opposed to our own, who don’t recognize equality of the genders, or any other 20th-century value, as far as I can tell? If I saw Saddam Hussein kicking Fred Phelps’s ass, I would stand back and watch, not try to stop the beating. Why is Kuwait any different?
