    ....do you really think that?

    Are you saying that they are angry because the America is doing something wrong?

    Are you implying that 9/11 was "justified"?! Because after all, they are "justifiably angry" *sarcasm*

    So America needs to be nice to terrorists?!...Or are you saying that because we don't 'treat them right' they are terrorists.

    That's right. We aren't dealing with normal criminals.
    We are dealing with people that some want to topple America's 'regime' as a country, as well as the whole western culture for that matter. And some of them are willing to drive a planes through American buildings to prove it

    You are missing what pubby said. Go back and re-read his post and you'll catch the true meaning I think.

    Yes, we should give them to the Euros to look after, like they've offering to do. Then we could set up some sort of system to release detainees who are innocent and, of course, never release anyone who has plotted against the US.

    Europe is run by cowards and fools. I wouldn't trust our "allies" to run a hot dog stand, let alone, be in charge of the world's most dangerous terrorists.

    I think we should release them only in the communities of any politician who voted against Gitmo, the Patriot Act, troop funding, the war, or who has trashed the troops or declared the war lost as it was being won.

    That way it would no longer be just innocent Americans who get slaughtered by absolutist Democrat stupidity and treason.

This state is not America; it’s more like Nazi-Germany or Stalin’s Russia. I hope ‘what do we do with the detainees is not the only reason holding us back from demanding justice.
    Um, I don't think there's a reasonable equivalency between the US and the Nazis or Stalin's Soviet Union. Maybe I am wrong or just plain stupid, but I don't see out government imprisoning millions of citizens and murdering tens of millions of people.

    Do you?

    You know, what is surprising is the large number of liberals that deal in these types of repugnant equivalencies. They hold no water whatsoever as a characterization of the US. In fact, such equivalencies do more to minimize the true horror of the Nazi machine gassing and burning millions of Jews and others and the Soviets murdering tens of millions of their own people. I wonder what motivated these people to feel compelled to lower the bar of true evil simply to smear Bush or the US.

    Guys like Obama who assert that our military personnel are fire-bombing villages in Afghanistan and Iraq; Dick Durbin comparing our military to the Nazi's, Soviet gulags, and Pol Pot's killing fields, etc., etc., etc.

    Seriously, do these people really think that anything the US has done in the last eight years comes close to attempting to exterminate an entire race of people, murder tens of millions of Soviet citizens or imprison millions of others, or reflect the killing fields in Cambodia?

    These people need their heads checked.
