1 of camp's purposes is to show how brutal U.S. can be. More deaths=more blowback=more war spending.

The fact is that Bin Laden and his 19 commandos saved Russia from extinction by Anglo-Irish hordes.

I wish that rather than lip service some other nation would publicly offer them a safe home.

The War on Terror isn't a war at all. You can't go to war with a tactic. Close this place.

I do not agree that this place should stay open. That being said, Gitmo is a result of the asymmetrical nature of the terrorist war. One must compare this to a reaction to guerrilla wars prisoners and not a traditional war. If you follow the Geneva rules on prisoner treatment you are playing by the rules and I DO feel the USA is doing so despite the rumors aside. But I feel that there could be a better place to do so.
