    Close Guantanamo, not just the prison, the entire base.

    Think back on Netanyahu and his little “bomb” representing the “red line” theorem. BTW, it WAS dumb for Obama to say chemicals would be a “red line” issue, instead of at least saying massive use thereof. BTW, chemical agents are far more limited in damage potential than even a C-130 with a Vulcan cannon. Also, GB sarin, or VX, are far less “brutal” than conventional weapons like white phosphorus (a “chemical weapon”), or cluster bombs. Even the Boston IED was more cruel and brutal than the few seconds it takes nerve agents to kill.

    P.S., Gitmo should never have been built, and definitely should have been closed in Obama’s first days in office, but the “righties” would have screamed bloody murder, as they already had at the mere suggestion of trying these criminals we picked up in our courts.

    He could close it tomorrow trout man, but you already know that. Keep making excuses for your boy.

    Obama signed the directive as his very first act as President. I don’t get why it didn’t close.
    (See, I am not always on his side.)

    Because the Republicans in Congress said he couldn’t?

    Any ultimatum is stupid. Having said that, I’m glad Obama’s taking a slower approach now. Our rushing in almost always ends up creating more problems in the long run.

    We also have to be careful about those rebels. The UN is reporting possible use of chemical weapons by rebels, too. If proven true, then whom do we trust?

    When I studied history, they told of how the UK had an excellent legal system before the country was bankrupted by the dimlibs. It was called the Star Chamber, and the US desperately needs to switch from our overcrowded and over-expensive legal system to the Star Chamber.


    The US government would never accuse anyone who wasn’t guilty, and is so careful they have never mistakenly accused anyone, so no need for trials. No need for any proof or evidence. If the government says someone is guilty, then he’s guilty. Guilty parties have absolutely no right to confront their accusers or see any of the evidence against them, since that’s all classified.


    The US has also learned a lot from the Spanish Inquisition. Prisoners who don’t immediately confess must be subjected to ‘enhanced interrogation’ until they confess, and their confession is irrefutable proof of guilt, so they deserved every bit of that ‘enhanced interrogation.’


    The 200 year experiment with the Constitution and the Bill of Rights has been demonstrated to have been a huge failure (except, of course, for the 2nd Amerndment), and it’s really great that the US has finally learned that and gone back to the tried and true methods of the Star Chamber and the Spanish Inquisition.


    And the overwhelming majority of voters support this long-needed abandonment of that failed experiment, since that’s the only way we can be safe!

    “Knowledge to replace ignorance and fear.”

    I must have missed something. I’ve seen little knowledge displayed by hard core conservative or liberal commenters in the GC forums. Vitriol, disdainfulness, and invective are the rule for their posts.

    As a well known tree hugger, my position on the prisoner of war base at Guantanamo is well known and I’ve posted on the topic again under another artist. I will just address Clark Kent’s over the left edge of the table comment since it’s the second time I’ve seen it today.
    ^
    One day, the USA and Cuba will normalize relations. At that time, Guantanamo can go from being a military base, to a place where travelers going to and from Cuba/USA can go through security and even stay, after the mine field is removed. The prison at GITMO needs to be closed. The PORT of Guantanamo, needs to be opened for travel and tourists. Cubans would love to see Americans come and visit. It’s only the Cubans in Florida who want this perpetual war footing between our countries. No Peace till they get what Castro took from them.
    That only works if we’re willing to give back to the Cherokee and other native tribes what we took from them.
    The past is in the past. Learn from it and move forward.
    Respectfully,

    I hear they have beautiful trees in Cuba.
    mmmmmmm

    I received your sarcasm, even if no one else did. Good job.

    “He keeps signing Executive Orders…”

    George W. Bush signed 291 executive orders. Barack Obama has signed 153 so far. They both have averaged about three per month.

    And “The Spanish Inquisition” made for a pretty spiffy song and dance number, too!
    (I really wonder how many Cons REALLY think you’re being serious…?)
