this where someone calls you "liberal" or "hippie" and then worries why so many are hostile to u.s.

Do you think they really spend their 5 daily prayer breaks praying or at least some of them jacking off on their complimentary prayer rugs?

wow.  that's just about the rudest thing i've ever read. such a fine example of sophisticated, educated, enlightened american.  makes me proud of my country.  shur does.


in terms of the discussion at hand here, america is in a tough position now.  if the prisoners in gitmo weren't terrorists before, they sure as hell are going to be if/when/if they're ever released. 

And then the next logical step is,  if they've released any people, isn't that admission that they didn't have the goods to really hold them in the first place?  I have to agree with sleepyguyyawn on this one.  He brings up a good point.

So as to their culpability, i'm fascinated by the ease with which many of you make the jump from suspected terrorist to guilty terrorist.

whatever happened to innocent until proven guilty?  is that too basic of a concept here?  i guess my litmus test is, holy darn, what if I or someone I loved was mistakenly rounded up? can you imagine, so many years of your life just gone?  no avenue for redemption.  no way of contacting the people you care about.  is the human aspect of this lost on you?

 I might be wrong here, but weren't a good number of these "terrorists" captured because of money based rewards.  "turn your turban-headed friend in for cash?"  Shouldn’t we be concerned about the possibility (it seems proven fact now) that there is/was innocent people being held there? 

If you're not outraged by that proposition, then you aren't american in the true sense of the word.  you have little respect for the values that this country was built on.  If you insist on thinking in black and white, then this should make sense to you.
 

war=suspected terrorist=guilty terrorist=not getting out any time soon. any questions?

those fvckers are lucky to be alive. how's that for 'human aspect' (whatever the hell that is)? no 'human aspect' in the torture rooms of iraq i guess... but wait this IS the liberal agenda: poop on bush. its way too obvious youve led sheltered and callow lives, and the others are outright socialists trying to suck some power from the proverbial cock in the name of love and equality for all bipedals. this is a just cause, a few mistakes are made, such is life, get over it.

'the values this country was built on?' are you on crack? speedballs? if i remember correctly killing people and taking over their land, as well as war, was exactly what this country was built on. get your head out of your fatuous ass.

im not outraged one bit by the proposition, but ive served in the military. so please tell me more about what an 'american' really is. i'm also an immigrant and more 'american' than you will ever be(again whatever the hell 'american' should mean).

since most will still be there when you get out of law school i will be looking for all you wonderful benevolent 'humanists' to be working for the 'civilians' at gitmo pro bono. yeah that'll happen. youll be too busy sucking down your starbucks and bitching about how evil republicans are.

On another note, does anyone really want to bring these guys into our civilian justice system? 

Are we really going to have a trial, call in the US soldiers to testify about their actions on the battlefield and what they saw and how they captured the enemy?  What if the soldiers did not marandize (sp) him before questioning?  Speaking of questioning...should we give them civilian attorneys before any takes place. 

Do we want to give a propaganda platform to these extremists? Can they sue our soldiers for their actions?

Just some questions.
