    Medically inducing consumption is far more expensive.
    But not medically inducing consumption costs less and saves the cost of a trial.

    More and more detainees in Guantanamo are on a hunger strike because they thought it was going to close but as we all know they have not. Im not surprised that no media outlet in the US is really reporting on this. [/FONT][/COLOR]
    Force-feeding them?? We've gone nuts.

    I've never really understood the concept of a hunger strike. I mean, who are they kidding? Does anyone care that they are hungry? I don't. Do they think the guards care? LOL, no. What they should do is go on a hygiene strike. That affects others. Hunger strikes seem so self defeating.

    What right does any person have to tube feed someone against their will?? I think it's outrageous.

    Yes Gitmo is still open, Obama couldn't close it and has really stopped trying. I'm not scared of any truth but attempting to derail a thread is just trolling.

    I don't know, maybe human beings who don't want other human beings to die?

    When someone is willing to kill themselves in a slow and horrible fashion, it is generally worth asking about why they might be doing that.

    In this case, indefinite detention by the US military without trial. As a so-called tea partier, surely you're not happy about the idea that the US government can just throw a person in jail forever and never have to justify it.
