Ar, I Can't Takes No More!

That should be read in the voice of Popeye. This was the point in the cartoon where Popeye would roll up his sleeves, chow on some spinach, and proceed to give Bluto a beat down. That is pretty much how I feel after hearing Dick Durban's comments regarding Gitmo.

On one occasion, the air conditioning had been turned down so far and the temperature was so cold in the room, that the barefooted detainee was shaking with cold. ..... On another occasion, the [air conditioner] had been turned off, making the temperature in the unventilated room well over 100 degrees. The detainee was almost unconscious on the floor, with a pile of hair next to him. He had apparently been literally pulling his hair out throughout the night. On another occasion, not only was the temperature unbearably hot, but extremely loud rap music was being played in the room, and had been since the day before, with the detainee chained hand and foot in the fetal position on the tile floor.

If I read this to you and did not tell you that it was an FBI agent describing what Americans had done to prisoners in their control, you would most certainly believe this must have been done by Nazis, Soviets in their gulags, or some mad regime--Pol Pot or others--that had no concern for human beings. Sadly, that is not the case. This was the action of Americans in the treatment of their prisoners.

WTF?!?!? Turning the Air Conditioning up so that a detainee is too fucking cold is reminiscent of Nazi concentration camps? Was he a fucking Jihadi-cicle? No? BFD! (That's Big Fucking Deal for those of you no fluent in internet vernacular.) The guy my dad shared an office with used to crank the air up. Is that on par with shoving living human beings in ovens? Or telling people they were going to the showers and gassing them to death. Then pulling the fillings from their dead bodies? Hell no!

So Dick (I won't give the respect of addressing DICK by his title) thinks that holding a couple hundred terrorists in Gitmo is the equivalent of the Nazis exterminating 9 million people just because they were from the wrong religious/ethnic background, or the Soviets (heroes of the left) murdering an estimated 50 million of its own citizens because their dared think differently than the state, or the genocidal communist fuck-tard Pol Pot who had millions (exact numbers here are hard to come by) killed just because? Now many jihadists have died at Gitmo. None, you say? How many have been worked to death making weapons to enslave the rest of the world? None. How many have frozen to death in inadequate living conditions? NONE. Let me say that again, fucking NONE!

I am more disturbed by the fact that we treat the terrorist so nicely. Hell, they are treated better than the children in some of our public schools, where you can be expelled for reading the Bible! Yet, we provide the jihadists with bran spanking new copies of the koran, which the infidel guards aren't even allowed to touch. These guys aren't some kid who tried to steal a couple packs of cigarettes from the corner store. They didn't steal a car. They aren't even the drug dealer who sells crack to kids on the school playground. These guys are terrorists. Given the chance, they would be more than happy to die blowing up a grade school and murdering young children. These guys are the embodiment of evil. And we treat them with respect, in air conditioned rooms. I don't even have air conditioning. I have had to sleep in my own fucking bed in temprature approaching 100 degrees with no ventilation. We should be shoving bamboo shoots up their fucking fingernails. I wan these guys to give up their mother, if she is planning on killing any more American civilians (or military for that matter).

Dick needs to get his head out of his fucking ass, resign from the Senate and apologize to every American he has just insulted, in person.

(Sorry for the profanity. I try to stay away from such language, but Dick has really brought out some strong feelings.)
