My leg hurts, I'm being bithched at and I don't have any money. Anyone want to trade?
I have been in combat over the last few days over at HAX plogspot (Swedish), where he initially stated that we should accept 17 chinese former prisoners from Gitmo.
I said that "Why the hell do we want terrorist suspects in our country?"
The responses were an uproare.
Iv'e been called a nazi, an idiot, a bigot, a SD hang-on (which I'm ceartainly not- I'm not a socialist!) and other... Well, not so cosy things.
Thing is; Even if the 17 chinese are unguilty (which they probaly are not- atleast not all of them)- they are released because of technical reasons. Yes, they have been inprisoned for 7 years, and now is up for release. That does not mean that they are not guilty- just that they could not be prooven guilty!
They are muslims who were taken in Afghanistan (I belive), no one knows what they were taken for, but I don't think that the USA army would spend any energy or money on a wild goose chase. 7 years of inprisonment equals a lot of money!
As a matter of fact, if you are an illegal combatant- which all the insurgents are- then you have no rights at all! The Geneva convetion-nill! The human rights convetion- nill! ASO,ASO.
That the forces in Iraq and Afghanistan still complies with these conventions is not only stupid but also mortaly dangerous.
The prisoners at Gitmo are up to 90% guilty as sin. And yet they release 90% of them.
