    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.
    My post has nothing to do with your latter statement. I simply don't get the point of hurting yourself to gain attention. You want to get some attention? Go on a butt wiping strike. That'll get you noticed.

    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]
    A couple of questions.

    How did Al Jazeera get this story? It seems intended for those who support, or are sympathetic to, terrorists.

    And why are these people even in Gitmo? Is the drone program not working as well as we were told?

    These fanatics should have been eating dust by now.

    I think many are missing the point of the story, when they were taken to Gitmo, they knew they had limited rights, and they like it or not accepted their fate, then along comes Obama …. One of his first actions was to Sign the Executive Order closing Gitmo. Fast forward to 50 months later, not only are they still there ….. More of their rights are being taken away .. It’s just broken promise after broken promise … same ole story, just a different story line .

    Wow some pretty disgraceful comments on here from so called "Americans". Here was me thinking that the US was built on law, order and justice not mob rule thank god no one here has any political influence.

    You're right... Many of the Japanese locked away via FDR were American citizens - which was explicitly tyrannical. As far as Obamy - that clown would label me a terrorist for being a staunch libertarian...

    Of course it is democrats who do and have done that nonsense....
