Anti-war e-mail leads to threats; worker firedMILWAUKEE — An American GI in Iraq who e-mailed a Wisconsin company to ask for a shipment of some floor mats got a brusque reply: "We would NEVER ship to Iraq. If you were sensible, you and your troops would pull out of Iraq."
The two-line e-mail response quickly circulated on the Internet and has led to threats against the Muslim-owned business and demands for a boycott.
Bargain Suppliers, an online retailer based in the Milwaukee suburb of West Allis, shut down its Web site Monday and fired the unidentified employee who sent the e-mail, WTMJ-TV reported.
Co-owner Faisal Khetani, a Muslim from Pakistan, has received threatening calls, the TV station said. In an e-mail dated Jan. 16, Sgt. Jason Hess asked about getting floor mats from the company.
"Do you ship to APO addresses? 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," the e-mail said.
A response e-mailed the same day said the company did not.
"And even if we did, we would NEVER ship to Iraq. If you were sensible, you and your troops would pull out of Iraq," said the e-mail, which was signed "Bargain Suppliers."
Hess, a 31-year-old Fayetteville, N.C., native who is stationed in Taji, Iraq, said he wanted some mats to cover the ruts in a concrete floor in a former parking garage or storage unit now used as a conference room.
Good to see the company fired the moron.Alpha Phi Sigma Alum - Alpha Delta Chapter

I'm ashamed that the company is in Wisconsin. I hope they go bankrupt, get sent back to the land of sand castles, and that their camel dies. They sure seem to like the benefits that our country offers, yet they have the balls to bitch about the people that guarantee those rights and benefits. F'em!For the morning will come. Brightly will it shine on the brave and true, kindly upon all who suffer for the cause, glorious upon the tombs of heroes. Thus will shine the dawn.
