Also DarkStormCrow as for Guantanamo bay? Well I think we're definitely going to disagree.
Lets put the situation another way: Lets say that you are going to visit a family member who lives in an apartment block in Russia. Lets then say that
on the floor below your family member there lives a man who is connected to a terrorist group that is anti-Russian. Suddenly Russian troops storm the
apartment block and decide that in case there is more than one terrorist in the building to arrest everyone inside the building, including you and
your family member. You try to explain to them that you are just visiting family but they don't speak English. They hood you, tie you up and drag you
out of the building; sitting you in the back of a truck, along with other people from the apartments. You get driven to an airport and thrown on a
plane, no one explaining where you are or why you are there. They fly you to a remote Island just off Serbia (you of course are unaware of this), you
managed to grab some sleep on the plane, but your still pretty tired and shook up. At this point you are taken to a hall-room, stripped, searched,
washed down and given overalls. You are then taken to a small interrogation room some 10 hours after you were arrested, a man enters the room, and
tells you in poor English that you are a terrorist and were caught trying to attack Russia, you try to explain yourself but they ignore you and
instead drag you out and lock you in a cell.
You are then tortured using sensory deprivation and sensory overload, sleep deprivation and solitary confinement. Every chance you get you shout that
you are innocent but the guards chuckle, either not understanding or simply not caring. You get regular meetings with an interrogator, who tells you
that all this will end if you sign a confession; but you refuse because you know you are innocent. You haven't seen a family member since you were
arrested, you are denied trial and representation; day light is only used against you as a weapon after long periods of sensory deprivation. You
don't even know what month it is.
Years have passed, although you can't be certain, they gave you a bible to read a few weeks ago, and it offers a little comfort. Eventually you see a
person from the Red Cross, but he is German so he doesn't understand you that well either. He says that you will get a fair trial soon, but you have
heard it all before from the interrogator. More months pass, a person from the American Embassy is allowed 5 minutes to talk to you, he tells you that
they are trying everything they can to get your release, he gives you a letter from your mother, but after he leaves the guards take it away.
This is Guantanamo Bay my friend. Its now nearly been 7 years. 7 ****ing years since all this started. And no-one cares. And you wonder why people
Not all the people there are innocent. But there are innocent people there. And you as an American have the power to stop this.
