It's a Gulag, I Tell You!

With all the breast beating by the MSM, Amnesty International, and some members of the Dimwit™ Party over the supposed "brutality" of the conditions at Gitmo, I thought that it might be interesting to see how the "Minutemen" of Iraq (as the Moron from Michigan has described them) treat those that they consider as enemies.

Just an excerpt :

"But he still had been hurt badly. Marks from beatings criss-crossed his back, and deep pocks, apparently from electric shock burns, were gouged in his skin."

"The shocks, he said, felt "like my soul is being ripped out of my body." But when he would start to scream, and his body would pull up from the shock, they would begin to beat him, he said."

"In an interview with an embedded reporter just hours after he was freed, he said he had never seen the faces of his captors, who occasionally whispered at him, "We will kill you." He said they did not question him, and he did not know what they wanted. Nor did he ever expect to be released."

"They kill somebody every day," said Mr. Fathil, whose hands were so swollen he could not open a can of Coke offered to him by a marine. "They've killed a lot of people."

But at least they didn't play Christine Agulara tapes! Note that the prisoners didn't have to worry about the Queran being desecrated, they weren't provided any. Nor were they allowed to make their required prayers in the manner prescribed....kinda hard to do when your chained up on a wall.

Another excerpt:

His town has always been a good place, he said, but the militants have made it hell.

"These few are destroying it," he said, his face streaked with tears. "Everybody they take, they kill. It's on a daily basis pretty much."

Mmmm and just how many fatalities at Gitmo?.....

Lets see: Insurgants Islamofacists treatment of prisoners:

1 chained to the walls.
2 beaten on a daily basis.
3 fed once a day.
4 Subjected to electric shock.
5 kept in a darkened house.
6 Prevented from practicing their religious duties.

Treatment of detainees at Gitmo:

1 Kept in cells equivelent to any modern prison
2 May be subjected to uncomfortable heat or cold, to break down resistance for questioning--DONE with close medical supervision to ensure no physical damage.
3 Fed three meals a day, of religiously appropiate food, including chicken ala'orange, peas and dates (average weight gain of detainees is 20-30 lbs since arrival)
4 Allowed access to Queran, arrows to indicate East, prayer rugs furnished, and a bell rung to indicate the proper times to pray.
5 Allowed access to a fenced yard to excersize and be in the fresh air.

So YOU tell me, WHICH side is running a Gulag?

Gitmo is a gulag and you know it is. What good is the Q'Ran if it's soaked from being pissed on in the toilet?

What do you think the Iraqis are going to do? Just let us come in there and take their country over?

You extremists really make me sick.

Let's see how the Dick Durbin's of this country survive in Iraq or anywhere else in the ME without our military support and protection. The Dimmo's own John McCain could tell them a thing or two about POW's and POW treatment and how the United States treats their POW's versus how other countries treat their prisoners, that's only if John is credible.
Imagine any prisoner getting better care than the the captors own soldiers in the field, I suppose that's the reason Americans get attacked for doing the right thing.

From the The Federalist Patriot No. 05-25

"According to the Encyclopaedia Britannica, some 15 million to 30 million prisoners died in the Soviet gulags. By comparison, Guantanamo at its peak held 750 prisoners; currently, there are 520; none have died in captivity, and, as I wrote 3-1/2 years ago, it has the distinction of being 'a camp where the medical staff outnumber the prisoners.' You'll get swifter, cleaner and more efficient treatment than most Canadians do under socialized health care. It's the only gulag in history where the detainees leave in better health and weighing more than when they arrive. This means they're in much better shape when they get back to their hectic schedule of killing infidels: Of the more than 200 who've been released, around 5 percent -- that's to say, 12 -- have since been recaptured on the battlefield." --Mark Steyn

Isn't there a rule against our government establishing any law giving favor to one religion over another?

I want to know if rules require government agents to handle the Christian bible, or the bloody Tao Te Ching for that matter, with similar obsequiousness-- rubber gloves etc.

Maybe it's just that "Congress shall enact no law..."
