    More surrender?

    Do you understand how strategically important Gitmo is?

    Really, how long has it been....this "it's only natural?" If so "natural" it must have precedence. Enemy combatants captured abroad and 'housed in the US?'

    "Only natural", huh?
    It was the Austrasians, that hewed on bravely through the thick of the fight, it was they who found and cut down the Saracen King.

    What do you suppose would happen in the world should the US decide that what you propose become reality?

    I'm not sure about the whole, "natural", thing, but we did bring German, Italian and Japanese prisoners to the US during WW2. We forced them to perform manual labor. Another war crime.

    Of course it's strategic if you engage in a policy of foreign interventionism. Then it becomes abundantly clear how vital it is to have US troops stationed all over the globe. It's the only way we can keep the world under our thumb.

    They'll be killed by other prisoners within in a month.
