    So... taking the enemy combatants to an American prison and treating them in exactly the same way as they're now being treated at Hotel Guantanamo will eliminate this fictitious "black eye" that only the pants-wetting left can see in what way?

    Except we did just that during WWII. We held more than 300,000 German POWs in camps in the US until the war was over. You think they all got lawyers and trials?

    Well, you may not read them, but at least some of us read at least some of your posts.

    How can it be a straightforward POW issue when there's no enemy nation with which to discuss prisoner treatment or prisoner exchange, let alone the surrender of that nation to permit the eventual repatriation of the detainees?

    Perhaps you should try to understand the issues at hand a little better.

    Well the difference there is that a number of people have already been released from Guantanamo and declared innocent. So its reasonable enough to assume that there are a number of innocent people still in there. In a conventional war the issue of whos guilty [for want of a better term] and who isnt is more clear cut.

    I agree, though I take exception to another poster's contention that "most" of the detainees are innocent. Also, there have been several "innocent" detainees that were released that were found to be fighting our soldiers again.

    The better term is "enemy". Because wars do not concern themselves with guilt or innocence, that being a matter for civillian courts in peacetime. Rather soldiers and patriots are concerned with national survival and the protection of the kids at home.

    Since the illegal enemy combatants are found on battlefields bearing arms against American troops, since those darling little people can't get the nations they claim to be from to acknowledge them and claim them, they're stateless enemy combatants and what the hell is a nation fighting a war against an amorphous multinational internationally nonspecific cowardly enemy supposed to do with the flotsam picked up on the battlefield?

    Personally, I'm all for questioning them until they're drained dry and then feeding them to the pigs.

    I haven't forgotten what those people did on September 11, 2001, and will never forget and never forgive the people involved.

    What's wrong with you?

    Even al-jazeera admits the Senator, Congressman, and thus the people there don't want them.
