I think that's called not seeing the forest thru the trees.
I didn't mean to get anybody's butthole in a pucker about any of this, so let's just leave it at that.
Don't even begin to assume that the prisoners in Gitmo were poor, innocent people. They weren't. And I'm not basing that on what my government tells me. I'm basing that on what their culture tells me.
This world needs more love and togetherness. Not hatred and violence. How do we achieve that? By dipsosing of those who do practice hatred and violence. And no, we are not putting ourselves on their level. It's called the ends justifying the means.
Now,I'm not saying that that is why our military/government is doing what they're doing, I'm not stupid. All I'm saying is that , in this case, it's not a bad thing because of who they are doing it to.
Imagine for 1 minute, there are 100 Gitmos around the world and various governments are doing what the U.S. did to people who, really, have no redeeming qualities whatsoever. It's just a matter of time, a mathematical reality, before all people who want to hate and kill for whatever wanton reason, are dead themselves.
