    He can’t even keep promises most people don’t want.
    I don’t know anybody that’s lost a second of sleep over the terrorists at Gitmo.

    Actually, ‘enemy combatants’ may be killed at the pleasure of their captors. They’re not protected as prisoners of war. Just because they’d be prisoners of war to anyone who read the Geneva Convention is inapplicable: the US leadership, and only the US leadership, has the right to define the English language, and they don’t need any stinking treaties that would bind their hands from doing the important work of stopping all those goatherds who hate America for its freedoms and want to invade and kill us all with their cruel crooks and their sinister staffs. Also, they want to rape our dogs and kill our women. And our brave President must do everything he can to drone them all.


    After all, US forces offered people in Pakistan and Afghanistan and elsewhere about a hundred years’ wages to hand over terrorists, and they complied. Then those ‘terrorists’ confessed under ‘enhanced interrogation’, which is the best proof of guilt known to American Law. So you’re absolutely right, every one of them is guilty of a heinous crime and should be punished, and punished severely. Why waste money on trials? No need. And the same should apply to anyone and everyone the US leadership unilaterally finds guilty.

    Rall, in addition to indecipherable artwork, has added an incoherent message, to create a truly incomprehensible comic. And he gets paid for it!

    Good point, we should end all of our hostilities that Bush started.

    First of all, policy is independent of other policy. There is no limit on number of bills that can be passed, and blurred limits on how many can be put forward based on time for debate.

    Second of all, some people care about other things than how much tax they pay

    Wrongly- and continually-imprisoned “residents” of Gitmo have friends and relatives, but they would never consider any terrorist activities in reprisal. Therefore, we should allow them to stay there until they die. No consequences, no problem. And the world is with us on this one; every country would do the same in our position.

    But Pres. Obama has kept his promises to the Plutocrats as we continue on our course of change from a faltering Republic to a corporate owned theologically run empire is still on course.
    -
    Under the Conservative Obama we don’t abduct people much anymore to torture and incarcerate for doing nothing illegal. We just have them killed. That seems to work. Almost no one knows it goes on or tries to stop it. Dropped off the tv scopes.

    “Enemy combatants” is a new term created by the Bush administration to circumvent the Geneva Conventions only. Obama continues with them.

    Only incomprehensible to you it seems. Find out what is lacking in your appraisal so you can.

    @Molon Labe

    So when you get labeled a “terrorist” you want that same treatment or do you trust our normal legal system instead of the Fascist one? What they do them they will do to us.
    -
    Many of those who now want to kill us didn’t until “we” arrested them on false charges or no charges, or killed their family members and friends as they just lived their lives. Wouldn’t you want to get back at the bastards that killed your family?

    Another incoherent diatribe by Ernesto “Che” Rall.

    Rall’s a commie but clever and entertaining nonetheless. Doesn’t the idea of drones buzzing around spying and zapping people disturb you just a wee bit?

    Apropos of nothing, other that “pre-9/11”. I was cleaning the basement a few days ago and found a Bellingham (WA) Herald from 9/10/01…. Can’t get much closer to 9/11 than that. The news was mundane, nothing to write home about….

    You do know that just saying someones a “Commie” doesn’t make it so. You have got to find proof. First define Communist then show where Mr. Rall is one. And it is okay to be one in this country theoretically.
