Gitmo Vacationers Fear Release

Ironically enough, it seems the guests at Club Gitmo are the only people on Earth unaware that they are trapped in "the gulag of our times" (per Amnesty International), where they are subjected to the torments of the damned at the hands of fiends that one of our own Senators (namely Democrat Dick Durbin) compares to Nazis, Soviets, and the Khmer Rouge. Some of these uninformed victims are so oblivious to the horror of their condition that they don't want to be released.

Many are afraid of what will happen when their vacation at Guantanamo Bay ends and they have to return to their native lands, where torture is not just a slur that liberals use to undermine their own country, but a common practice. China, Saudi Arabia, Uzbekistan, Yemen, Algeria, and Syria are among the countries to which terrorists would rather stay in "the gulag of our times" than return.

"If I am sent back to China, they will torture me really bad," whined one terrorist. "They will use dogs. They will pull out my nails."

Don't they get CNN at Guantanamo Bay? This guy doesn't seem to know that he's already being tortured.

A couple of other Uighurs (Chinese Muslims) are appealing a rejection of their request to be released to the USA (yes, the country they were captured unlawfully fighting against), where a family in the DC suburbs has offered to adopt them.

Said their lawyer, "Home is China, and in China you disappear into a dungeon and no one ever hears from you again."

But at least you aren't oppressed by capitalist greed.

Congressman Edward Markey (D-MA) seems to agree that the terrorists should be granted asylum in America. Unsatisfied with assurances from their native governments that released Gitmo guests won't be tortured, Markey is pushing a bill that would ban sending terrorists back to the sort of countries that breed terrorists, on the grounds that they might not receive the royal treatment to which they've become accustomed since their capture. Unless he wants them executed or locked up forever, that would presumably mean granting them US citizenship.

Whether Markey is crazy enough to bring the poor put-upon maniacs into his own home is not known.

Will Edward Markey adopt some terrorists?

We deserve to be carpet-bombed for flaunting our torture so shamelessly.

Bring it on! Give us what we deserve, I say!

I deserve to be shot for relentlessly endorsing fascism.

Bring it on! Give me what I so richly deserve, I say!

Markey is nuts, let's hope and pray he does not get his wish. Good grief this is hard to believe someone would want this but then again consider the source of what Markey is and his leftest heart of NOT being gold. grrrrr

Markey looks like a pussy. Kinda like Kennedy and Kerry. Don't they have any real guys up there in MASS that can get elected?

As much as Rep Markey is irritating, I would think that granting ayslum for detainees, who have seen the error of their ways, would be comendable, and perhaps a first. I would remind all that after the Korean War Armistice was signed, UN forces (mostly U.S.) had to forcibly repatriate many Chinese POWs, who faced less than a warm welcome back home.

I think in WWII as well, former Soviet POWs, were forcibily sent back by the Allies, to the 'warm' embrace of Uncle Joe.

Perhaps its time to do the right thing?

Have to love the Chinese prisoners' take - funny how those who understand what torture REALLY means seem to have absolutely no problem about conditions at Gitmo.
And then, from the tin foil hat side of the border, here come the leftists, deciding that the best way to say "we're sorry, terrorists" is to set them free within the borders of the country they intended to infiltrate and harm in the first place.
Somewhere, tonight, terrorists are reading the news and laughing their heads off at how idiotic Markey is, and how lucky they are that we've decided to help them destroy us.

Seriously, doesn't it bother ANYONE that these people would be terrified to a point of hysteria of being repatriated to countries we do so much business with?

An explanation, for those of you who are wedded to political ideologies.

I am a PROUD "MOONBAT" (I'm actually getting accustomed to the sound of that) but I deeply believe that much of the problems we are having now can be directly attributed to schemes like GATT, NAFTA, and, sadly, President Clinton's decision to extend most favored nation status to China, when everyone KNEW what was going on there.

It's a nasty little corner we have boxed ourselves into, and frankly, I think our policies, regardless of whatever twisted faction is in rule, have to be a bit more consistent.

Van: Your readers have probably seen the comic email about housing terrorists from Gitmo in liberals homes.
