I didn't realize that the threads were merged, I was busy on the other section reading the just one evolution thread and the just one quantum mechanics thread. Drinking Beverage

They are protesting being tortured and the shitty treatment and the indefinite detention.

Yabut. How do you know that they're being tortured? Thing I like about America, we can go, "America sux!" And not have to worry about the secret service knocking on our door.

You wanna go on about,"everybody here," but you don't wanna stop to recognize the facts. Like how I agree with your dissatisfaction, perhaps, but take exception to your presentation.

Back to the matter at hand...

Two things. It's not just "how these fucks are being treated," but also, "how does how we are treating these fucks represent our view of
America to the world." And on the second question, yeah, we're fucking the dog.

How would I treat 'em? Go to the center of Baghdad with a contingent of Marines and toss 'em into the fucking wood chipper. But I see morality as a personal concern, ethics as a societal concern, and ethically, we probably shouldn't be tossing nobody into the chipper.

What remains is to gather a congress of individuals to discuss what should be the ethical response to terrorism. Unfortunately - and as you often demonstrate - emotions cloud reason.

RE: How about that 2 month hunger strike that the U.S. media isn't covering?
I heard about this at least a few weeks ago. The inmates were segregated and some are being force fed, others are convinced the hunger strike is over because they have no contact with other inmates so they are eating. I think you haven't seen much about this because it's not really that big of a deal.

Shh don't you know it's all an international conspiracy to make I&I look like he was mistaken. It can't possibly be that this is not a really big deal and has mostly taken care of itself. That is just silly.

The number of detainees refusing food is on the rise

And the situation isn't "taking care of itself" it is getting worse, prisoners are starting to protest and 15 are being force fed, and as one lawyer who represents several of the detainees said "they are skin and bones"

Thanks for being wrong anyway... Drinking Beverage
