This is so nothing new.
I don't know, but I kind of think that allowing the future inhabitants of those concentration camps to continue to flow into the country years after
the start of hostilitities might be rather a new tactic.....
I mean, not all the japanese that were probably wishing to come into the US after WW@ started wished to spy on us or blow us up either.....but, I bet
they weren't allowed in!! I kind of wonder if we weren't shipping a bunch of them out long before those camps came into existance. which would you
think is better, more humane, to prevent the possible terrorists to enter our country to begin with and ship out some of the ones we have here, or let
them flow in illegally, undocumented, unscrutinized, uncounted....and then patiently wait for a few more hits to cause the paranoia in the people to
build to the point where they are calling for protection and the camps seem to be justified in their eyes?
was it racist for us to place so many italians, germans, and japanese into these camps when we had so many new immigrants from these countries, or was
it a more in the line of self defense, since some of these new immigrants had come here with the intention of harming our country?
We seem to have lots of people now trying to justify the torture of these suspected terrorists....they seem to want to even make it part of gov't
policy. it wouldn't take much to ease it a little more into the inhumane side and they'll be justifying the camps, trying to make that policy also.
making an honest effort to keep the future occupants from entering our country in the first place would seem to me to be a way of protecting them
from possible internment, from torture, ect...than a racist act at this point.
