There has been alot of pundit speech lately on Dick Cheney and his advocacy to keep Guantanamo Bay open and to continue the practice of Water Boarding. The same Water Boarding tactics that we have heard about the past couple of months. The same Water Boarding tactics that Nanci Pelosi knew about and approved of, before she forgot about it, and called the CIA liars for calling her out about it. So we all know that Water Boarding is evil because everyone on TV tells us so.
Um is it? Do we even know what Water Boarding is? I will tell you exactly what Water boarding is, and you can decide on whether or not you consider it torture or not. Because that is what smart people do: Develop their own opinion and don’t listen to people who tell you what your opinion should be!
Water boarding is basically immobilizing someone on their back, by restraining them, and water is poured over their head. With so much water over their head, it induces the gag reflex which gives them the sense of drowning or dying. It does not cause any physical damage to the subject and depending on how you do it, water may not even get into the subjects mouth or nose because cloth usually covers their face.
Whether or not it is effective or not is probably based on the subject undergoing it. But Kalid Sheikh Mohammed underwent this experience an estimated 183 times, yielded actionable intelligence that was credible to follow up on. And oh yeah: He was the mastermind behind the 9/11 attacks. Remember those? In just a couple of days, it will be 8 years since 2,993 people lost their lives on that fateful morning.
Now activist judges call Water Boarding Unconstitutional. They want to Close Club Gitmo Down. (Well not actually the base, but the detention center, but liberals probably want to give the base back to Castro anyway). They want you, the taxpayer, to pay for them to be prisoned in the United States of America to undergo non military trials. Their is talk about their rights to a fair trial, how they should be treated with respect and not interrogated unless they have a lawyer present.
Oh I’m sorry, their is one little problem with all of this baloney. These are enemies of the state! They are NOT US Citizens. They are NOT born in the US and they have NO RIGHTS in the United States. They are NOT entitled to a lawyer! The want to KILL us and they want to bring down our country. What about all the people on 9/11 that lost their lives? What about the Journalist and Workers that were BEHEADED while they were alive and screaming? What about the citizens of IRAQ that are killed and blown to smithereens everyday? What about school girls in Afghanistan that are beaten and raped everyday for wanting to go to school and learn how to read and write? WHERE ARE THEIR RIGHTS?
Thats rights, all the victims have no rights, because they are usually not around to speak for themselves because they have been brutally beaten, really tortured and killed. All the liberals want us to be compassionate to the detainees (liberal buzz word for Terrorist Killers), but I tell you I have no compassion for those animals. They WANT to be Martyrs! They want to die for their extremist beliefs! Well for what its worth, what we should do is get all the intelligence you can out of them, and line them up in a firing squad. That is what they really deserve, because they earned it!
It is outrageous that we are even having this discussion. It is outrageous that our troops are giving the ultimate sacrifice while politicians play their petty game. It is outrageous that these terrorist are allowed to exist. Is it really so far fetched to even consider this: If you are a citizen of the United States and you commit treason, the penalty is death? However, if you are not a citizen of the United States. and you kill, massacre and maim citizens of the Unites States, you are given rights? Does that make any sense? I can’t make any sense out of it, can you?
I should not mention the fact that out of all the inspections of Club Gitmo by various groups, that the detention center has been shown to treat the prisoners fairly and have not uncovered any evidence of the abuse. No, I should definitely not mention that because that would go against the liberal thought that we have hundreds of people down their in chains and hooked up to batteries being flayed and whipped to death. No, I should definitely not say that these terrorist get 3 meals a day, medical attention and clothes, and even exercise time out in the tropical air. I should definitely not mention that they are given a military trial and if they are innocent, they are free to go. No I should definitely not mention, that we have already released people back to their countries, so they go back and kill more US Soldiers. No I should not mention any of this, because that is not really what goes on there!
Now, it is a terrible thing to have people lose their lives, it is a terrible thing that innocent people are killed, raped and brutalized every day. It is a terrible thing that evil people want to kill us for being who we want to be. It is a terrible thing that we have to even utilize something called water boarding because these terrorist brought their war to us. It is terrible thing that we have to sometimes stoop to the enemies level to fight the war their fighting. Alot of evil things happen everyday. However, if we are ever to stop this, extreme measures may have to be taken, because no matter how fair we treat our prisoners, we will not get the same treatment if the tables are ever turned. If you consider all of this for all the people of the world, and people that want to live free and productive lives, then we are all losers, because these terrorists will never want give up and we have to keep eternally vigilant.
