who support the slave trade
During my tenure in Kuwait, I attempted to report TIP for a slave that had infected green cigarette burns on his arms, among other human rights concerns. My boss (a Company Commander) told me to go over to the MP station. They sent me to Army Central Command (ARCENT), Area Support Group (ASG), where the deputy commander, in civilian clothes since he had just come to work from his downtown villa that Friday day off for him, told me that I could resign federal service if I didn’t like the way the Army did things in Kuwait. A year later the ASG housing manager sent a very racist email to all of us men living in one leased high-rise (called the Rosa Castle) using her yahoo email account, using every derogatory and offensive word she could think of for women of the Pacific Rim, a couple I had never heard of. Then since there is no SOFA with Kuwait, the US is there solely at the invention of the Amir. This same woman took local foreign law into her own hands and busted into an apartment (Tala Tower Complex) where she suspected the Sargent Major had an Asian girlfriend. Nola was correct in her assumption. What she had not counted on was Jovy jumping or falling from the 8th floor window to escape, since deportation was the best Jovy could hope for, I am sure died because she was afraid of being raped and killed in Kuwait police custody. Just another formal ‘accident’ in the slave state I was assigned. Took them a few days to get all the blood off the pool deck outside my back door, I got this one pretty first hand. Needless to say I went to CID with that racist email as the negligent homicide investigation never went anywhere. Most of a year later that same woman was still the housing manager and Jovy’s body rotting in Kuwait since no one wanted to fund sending her home to the Philippines so her kids could bury her…25)
Due to the US State Dept TIP, Tier-3 slave state status of Kuwait, USA federal law requires an annual presidential waiver to provide Kuwait (and Saudi) anything more than humanitarian aid, after a natural disaster, if they ask for it first. That waiver had been expired for about 2-weeks in October 2010 when I landed on US soil on a military R&R flight. I was on emergency leave, my father dying. But I still did my best that day to have INS, HLS and US Customs arrest every one of us on that flight. Since at that point in time, it was a federal crime to have been in Kuwait the day prior. I would have just loved to have seen network news that night, had I been successful.
Kuwait will not stamp US Federal Employee Official Passports, we come and leave the country on Army (DAC) ID cards and are not legally allowed to go rent a car or for that matter rent an apartment because we are not even in the country as far as Kuwait is concerned.
Our US contractors surrender their USA Passports, to their Arab ‘sponsor’ for months when they land in Kuwait. This eventually gets them a Visa 18, but not the passport back. One of my contractors hit a guy J-Walking, attempting suicide - he had left a note -, one night on the way home. He spent most of 30 days in Kuwait jail, then most of a year getting his passport back. Jail a 40x40 room with 40 men in it, a hole in the middle of the floor for the bathroom and a hose stuck in the window a couple times a day for water. He lost 30 pounds, before he was released. The guy he hit, only a broken leg that our team had stopped and rendered 1st Aid for. Rumor has it he did go a bit American on the police, the reason for a month in jail. It gets better; another US contractor cut off his testicles, stuffed them in his mouth, gutted himself pelvic to juggler vein and then almost cut his head off. That officially was a suicide and the woman he was with, they never did find her body.
This is the human rights we are protecting in Kuwait, well besides the world oil supply. Gotta be nice to slave states, terrorists and OPEC, they are one in the same. One day upon returning from working at a desert camp up in north Kuwait, I missed a freeway turn, ended up smack in the middle of Jahara, just as the very short lived Arab Spring of Kuwait went down. This did make BBC the next day and on the year anniversary, but the whole story of the Kuwait military putting down the Arab Spring in that country in about one hour, using US military hardware, had to be witnessed firsthand, I did. All these peoples are fighting for (besides a little share of the oil wealth) is the right to be human, as it is, they trace their ancestry on the land further back than when the UK made Kuwait a country 55 years ago, to this day, they do NOT get a birth/death/marriage certificate because they are not Kuwaiti royal blood (or close friends)..
