A Business Gives Our GIs the Business

My friend Heidi over at Euphoric Reality, a site that is always on top of things, reports about a supposedly American Company that refused to sell items to a Sergeant who is stationed in Iraq. Now, I have no problem with any business that does not ship to an APO (Army Posy Office) address or does not ship overseas. No one expects businesses to change how they normally do business just because we are at war. However, this business went a little beyond stating that they do not deliver to an APO address (from Euphoric Reality):

Do you ship to APO address? I’m in the 1st Cavalry Division stationed in Iraq and we are trying to order some mats but we are looking for who ships to APO first.

SGT Hess,
We do not ship to APO addresses, and even if we did, we would NEVER ship to Iraq. If you were sensible, you and your troops would pull out of Iraq.

Bargain Suppliers

This answer went a little beyond what was necessary and it shows outright contempt for our soldiers who are in harm’s way so that the jackass who owns this business can make such statements. Interestingly, the domain is registered to Faisal Khetani. I don’t know if this is the same person who owns the business but the attitude fits with the name. This is America so any company is free to say what they want about war and to deny shipping to anyone they want. I also know that we are free to never patronize their business so I am asking anyone who reads this who does business with this company or is thinking about it to go to another company. This person is too busy shipping prayer mats to Gitmo and Osama bin Laden in the hills of Pakistan.

It is beyond me how people can move here from these third world sand pits (or in some cases be second and third generations of people who moved from sand pits) and still act like America is not a good place or that there is some allegiance to a Middle Eastern country. If you don’t like America being in Iraq that is fine but to treat service members like that is just plain wrong. I am fed up with people who are here living a much better life than they could ever have hoped for in the cesspool country they came from trashing this country and the way we run it. It belongs to us real Americans and if your allegiance is not to this country get the hell out before we boot your sand flea asses out.

They come here, set up shop, make money, go to good schools, drive nice cars, live in nice homes, are free to worship as they please, say and do what they want and then they have the nerve to insult the people who fight for and provide the very blanket of freedom and safety under which they live. Well they can all go straight to hell and they can take their business with them.

Visit Euphoric Reality to get contact information for this company (al-Qaeda west) and send them a nice email letting them know how much you appreciate their freedom of speech and how you intend to exercise yours. I already sent my email. I expect it will be perceived as hat mail, and they might be right because I hate it when they screw with our troops.

My hunch is they are a company with ties to the name but if not, it still applies to the liberal jackasses who spread this kind of stupidity all the time.

    This is an EXACT copy of the email I sent to them…
    The troops have NO CHOICE in where they are, they follow orders, and here’s a little surprise for you, REAL AMERICANS are going to be seeing the response you made to the young troops that asked you if it was possible to get an order shipped to an APO…

    You are entitled to your opinion but your attitude towards a CUSTOMER, a paying customer, as well as a soldier of this nation is nothing less than reprehensible and there are MANY of us that are going to try our very best to put you OUT of business…

    Trust me when I say this, this message has just been sent to emails ALL OVER THE WORLD, I won’t curse you, call you names or make physical threats, I’ll do MY best to REALLY hurt you, I will do my very best to take FOOD off of YOUR table…

    Fox News carried this story tonight. Apparently the employee responsible for that reply has been fired. The owner is indeed a Muslim American from Pakistan. They had to take down their website and they have been getting hate calls about every 30 seconds since this hit the internet today.
