Compare and contrast. On the one hand we have a full grown man crying like a baby over the insertion of an NG tube and that of a young girl who performs this on her own every day.

As a nurse, my wife has performed this procedure 100's of times on everyone from drug OD's to the elderly and even on herself by another nurse during school and she thought Mos Def's performance was ludicrous.





I know Mos Def has had some acting roles, but this one takes the cake.

Well, in all fairness to the guy there, if I were the one it were being done to, I think my reaction would be dramatically different between a girl or nurse with good intentions and the soldiers of a power I'm a prisoner of in a real nasty war. Indeed...I think from his side, who is doing what has a great deal to do with it.

Fair enough, I could see how people wouldn't find it comfortable to have it forced on them but Mos Def crying like a baby ... really?

Mos Def wasn't crying because they inserted a tube into his nose, he was crying over the fact that human beings, possibly innocent ones, have to be tied down, held down, and forced into the procedure. You honestly believe what they do in Guantanamo Bay is comparable to sitting in your room and inserting the tube yourself.

When you're in that chair against your will, surrounded by military personnel much larger and stronger than you, trying to fight it because you don't want it forced upon you, your adrenaline is rushing and you know you can't do anything about it then come give your opinion. The fact that you can't comprehend why he reacted the way he did shows that you didn't take more than a few seconds to think it through, you were too busy being judgmental.

OP,

Do notice, please, that Mr. Bey -- and assumedly the Guantanamo detainees -- aren't drinking water, like the girl does, in order to deter the gag reflex. And who knows if the Gitmo goons are as meticulous about hygiene of the tube or its lubrication. I'd also challenge the OP to undergo the same treatment as the detainees, i.e. guards forcing it down his nasal passage, throat and esophagus.

Also note that 86 of the 166 current Gitmo detainees prisoners, many of whom were falsely imprisoned in the first place and had nothing to do with terrorism or militantism, have been cleared for release, but don't have a country that will take them, as being Gitmo captives, they are virtual lepers. Many of these persons have been imprisoned there for more than a decade and they have no legal recourse; hence they have lost all hope, and this hunger strike on their parts is the only action they can take to bring attention to their case.

Yet you have attempted with your thread to belittle this invasive and extremely unpleasant ordeal they are forced to go through each day for several hours at the hands of what are for all intents and purposes thugs and goons.
