Stinks Like Slavery

The people of Iraq have not been duly convicted of a crime; they should not be subject to involuntary servitude. Iraq certainly appears to be subject to our jurisdiction. If we provide them money as required loans and compel the Iraqi people to pay the loans they had no choice on taking, we are practicing involuntary servitude. Although the proposed compelled loans should also be fought on constitutional grounds, we should not inflict this on the people of Iraq because it stinks like slavery. The Thirteenth Amendment is the one that we have paid the most blood for, our congress should respect it more than this.
