Tourture at a US Base?
Let us see what is considered tourture.
How many died? in GITMO, Zero. Socialist like Stalin Hitler, and Pot Pol millions.
Broken Bones, None, Electroshock, None.
No bamboo under the fingernails, nothing like that at all.
Still, These are terrorist, captured under arms shooting at US military personel.
They are not military personel. The Geneva convention does not apply, they are not a part of any army of any country, weather that country has signed
the Geneva Convention or not.
If I were in any country at war, in civilian clothes, planting bombs, shooting at that country's soldiers. If I were captured I would be shot
forthwith as a spy and sabatour. These detalnees at GITMO deserve nothing else. The USA gratuitously did not kill them, but took them to GITMO to sort
the wolves from the sheep. There may be some innocentes caught up with the others.
The ones that we have kept, If released they again would take up arms, and would do their best to kill Americans, British, Germans, French,
Italians, Japaneese, Turks, Iraqi, and Afgans.
Treatment, they get three religously correct and wholesom nutritious meals a day. compare that to what US toops got in NVN. Compare it to how
captured American and colition troops are treated in Iraq!
How many detainees in GITMO have been beheaded!
No forced labor, They have religious liberty immans to confer with, running water, sinks so that they can wash their feet before prayer. "They are
not in some slave shanty, they do not have to grow their own food. They are not put in sweat boxes left to roast in the sun. aka Japan, Vietnam."
They are given Korans. "Try asking for a Bible in a Saudi Jail."
"They are treated better than they deserve."
They were not just picked up off the street,They were in combat against US Soldiers. They were not in the Armed Forces of any country. They are
Al-queda, They are terrorist, They are there in GITMO for a reason.
Yes we questioned them and got information about other terrorist. Methods were not any rougher than most police would use in the majority of countries
in the world. Far milder than in any Islamic country!
Find out what gets to them psycologicaly and use it to find out all that they know. If it saves the life on one person in Iraq, then go for it.
Is it a resort? No it is not supposed to be. "I serving in the US Army have lived in quarters much worse than what the detaines in GITMO have." Go
to any US military base, and go to the stockade. American Soldiers who have broken military law are confined there, wearing distinctive clothes, no
physical abuse, but not respected. its a jail. They perform demeaning task, make work. It is part of the punishment.
In the case of GITMO to check and cross check intelligence information.
