The linked paper is quite reputable in India.

Get in that bath, you brown person, and scrub!
Fucking hell, thats frightening.
MoFI's are sure picking a weird day for being drunk,
Holy shit, it's like the military is de-evolving Lord of the Flies style over there. Do you think the American press will pick this up? *checks Google news, sees "Jackson's Underwear Now Evidence" headline* Well, that answers my question.
So the only two sources for this article were a man and his brother? Did the reporter find evidence of physical mistreatment? Did he ask for comment from the command these men allegedly served under? Did he even verify that they indeed worked there? Does the reporter ask for specific examples of said "torture?" Yeah, some real fine journalism there. These are serious allegations and need to be investigated, not just tossed out there as a pile-on piece. And speaking of the verified mistreatment of prisoners but the U.S., rarely do soldiers act without being given a command from higher up the chain. I want to know who ordered the code red...
Whafuck? India is our friend, the second largest democracy on the planet, and in my experience, produces some of the finest people I've ever met. So, great: First delta-house torture, now half-enslavement of our friends. It's been a banner week for America, hasn't it?
the second largest democracy on the planet
Are you trying to big up Iceland again, Fes? ;)
I don't want to be too suspicious, but this sounds a bit extreme. Honestly, I had the same reaction to last week's Iraqi Abuse, so I need a bit more external verification before I can bring the noize.
If it is true, what is the US doing purchasing slaves at all, even if treated properly?
>>The Americans in the camp told the Indians that they had purchased them for a hefty amount yeah, i'm with shotsy. i'd like to know a bit more about this.
With a population of around one billion (compared with 300 million Americans), India is the largest democracy on the planet, surely?
Well, poop. I had read somewhere that India was the second largest, but a quick google seems to indicate they are the largest democracy. Thanks, plep. And I apologize for the mistake.
Hello? What am I, chopped fucking liver? ;) Is it because I is Indian? /Ali Ghee
Thanks also to the inimitable quidnunc kid, both for highlighting my geopolitcal ignorance and implying that I dislike Iceland ;)
mea culpas are fucking HARD around here, man
Fes... India is the world's second most populous country. I bet that's what you were thinking of.
I dislike Iceland
Oh man, the
are gonna kick your ass.
Fes: hee hee! Sorry, I were just bein' silly. Except about Iceland. They is teh sux0rz.
Now you two better kiss and make up. Don't want no bad vibes hanging around here.
*in light of the relative frequency of a puckered-up quidnunc kid, tentatively slips a little tongue*
Dear God, I'm having internet sex! Where everyone can see! *resumes
*looks around sassily for the audience, essays a cautious heavy-pet*
Woah now, there may be kiddies watching! Unless
is the kind of heavy-pet you're thinking about.

This may put further strain on our relationship:
The weapons we're sending to Islamabad are targeted against India, not the Taliban.
