i am perplexed by the americans that feel that guantanamo bay is the deepest scariest hell hole that we have detained prisoners of war or those that are hard to classify as the geneva convention do not apply …
and how dear leader kim jong il has two american reporters in work camps…
i wonder which is worse. i wonder how guantanamo stacks against prisons, prisoner treatment in other countries, and the base accommodations that terrorists and enemy combatants are treated compared to 2 women that were filming on/near/across the border in north korea
i wonder if lisa ling had a choice for her sister… would she pick the north korean prison camp or guantanamo bay for her sister laura ling and euna lee. i bet you that other than not having to server a prison term at all.. that she would pick 12 years at guantanamo bay versus any prision camp in any other country
it makes me mad that people have no perspective on the lengths that the US seems to take… even for caring for terrorists… compared to things that i have heard happening in prison camps in north korea. rape, force abortions, real work camp in mines and deplorable conditions and sometimes death…. none of which have happened at guantanamo
the US is giving habius corpus rights to people picked up outside of the country… none citizens or residence of the country … and those that are trying to kill them. yes mr ACLU … if they had a chance, they would kill you.
look at what they are going to do with the chinese muslims … they are looking in a south pacific for another island to hold these prisoners … because they know that they cant try them in a normal court of law.
it is great that they want to close guantanamo … but they are just going to have to rebuild something someplace else … or extend things in places like supermax in colorado .. and living in denver.. i do not want these guys anywhere near my family .. even in a supermax. dont you guys watch prision break? i dont want colorado to become a target .. we love being semi anonymous and i would some other place being hit first if they decide to attack again
people may feel that guantanamo is bad …. but compared to north korean prison camps .. i would volunteer to go to guantanamo bay versus spending any time in anything that north korea will dish out. they need to look at the scale of what they think is ‘torture’ that may be inflicted on terrorists… compared to day to day _torture_ that north koreans being caught trying to flee to china, having a bible, speaking against the government… aside from some of the fringe people… most people understand that even if you voiced protest against obama .. you will not be ‘disappeared’ like you might in other countries.
the only saving grace for the women is that they are american and being used as pawns in the nuclear crazy dear leader death spiral game … and they will be kept relatively safe, fed, and in good condition to be presented on tv etc …
