    The rendition flights to Guantanamo are the worse form of human trafficking, but then American arrogance and hypocrisy know no limits.

    Its funny how there are actually more human trafficking going on in the US and its borders than Thailand has.

    D5: "Love it or hate it, the USA is the country people most want to live in"

    Oh boy! that sums up the U.S. over-esteem quite perfectly.
    About 90% of U.S. citizens don't own a passport, hence have never seen anything else than the U.S.
    Probably as many do not speak anything else but english, hence would not understand any newspaper or TV station from another country, hence totally depending on the home made news agencies with their U.S. clustered view.

    I note the USA has borrowed $59 billion from Thailand, but as previous posts have already stated US hypocrisy has no bounds.

  • Discussion 10 : 13 Jan 2013 at 19.2410

    Yes it is unreasonable for reasons mentioned here already and its with great probability the "invoice" for voting against the US in the Palestine question.

    I am from California and the Federal Government has Destroyed the U.S. by allowing 20,000,000 Million Mexicans into America. I hate it and everyone else does. How would Thailand like a group of people spraying Graffiti on every wall, fence, and street post here as well as overpopulating the place with Violent teens? Thailand is strict on Immigration for good reason, It's hard for me to check in every 90 days but that is the law.
    The U.S. like France, Germany, England has problems with new Immigrants not assimilating into society and adding crime. Here we have the U.S. wanting to slap Thailand for Human Trafficking! So Hypocritical.

    ravbrat #2: The USSR was dissolved in 1991.

    D6: Wrong again! The US have, up till now, improved the condition for its citizens at the cost of the rest of world.
    But this discussion is OT so I will stop here.

    Where would you be had the USA not protected you for the last 100 years? Love it or hate it, the USA is the country people most want to live in. Is the USA perfect-NO, is the USA better than your country-you can't answer that (fairly) until you lived in (not visited) the USA for a while. The USA could certainly do things better - but at least they are doing something that your countries are unable or unwilling to do (the dirty work). Love or hate the USA, they have improved the lives of all humanity more than China has or could.
