    Thanks a lot cellmatrix. 2007 is very good so far - hope yours is, too. Very busy year. No real time for nitpicking accusations as the above... Cheers, clulup

    No I didn't, never, nowhere. I said I don't think diarrhea or other waterborne diseases are a problem for the US soldiers, and that the man is the video is fake. I think it is unlikely that the soldiers get diarrhea at all, and even if, only mild forms and not typhus (because the are vaccinated) or cholera (because even Iraqis living in even less sophisticated conditions suffer from it only very rarely, luckily). In case you have evidence for the contrary, show it. Maybe 1911sforever can give some first hand experience?

    Feel free to go on with your stubborn rant, as far as I am concerned, more than enough time has been wasted on this. Have a nice weekend.

    Yes you did. Right here:

    I was done after my first post. I thought Tool's question was a waste of time, and I tried to let it go, but you and he insisted on prolonging this silly discussion about your disregard for the health of US soldiers by having a different argument about whether disregarding the health of US soldiers is justified.

    I suspect the root of this disagreement is that you don't know what "disregard" means.

    Soldiers having the runs are not effective soldiers. Halliburton should do what they are being paid to do. We should be upset at them.

    Having said all that, waterborne diseases can be handled by modern medicine just fine. I have not read anywhere that soldiers are not getting good medical care in the field. Nor have I heard of any soldier dying from this. If they are, then we REALLY have something to get outraged about.

    In case you or anyone else is interested, here are a couple more articles on the subject of antibiotic overuse the the emergence of drug resistant cholera strains.
