This is what the Lefties were comparing to Auschwitz?!

Just read this and laugh/weep at the drooling idiots who are still screaming bloody murder of the "concentration camp-like" conditions over at Guantanamo Bay:

Asadullah strives to make his point, switching to English lest there be any mistaking him. "I am lucky I went there, and now I miss it. Cuba was great," said the 14-year-old, knotting his brow in the effort to make sure he is understood.
Not that Asadullah saw much of the Caribbean island. During his 14-month stay, he went to the beach only a couple of times - a shame, as he loved to snorkel. And though he learned a few words of Spanish, Asadullah had zero contact with the locals.



He spent a typical day watching movies, going to class and playing football. He was fascinated to learn about the solar system, and now enjoys reciting the names of the planets, starting with Earth. Less diverting were the twice-monthly interrogations about his knowledge of al-Qaida and the Taliban. But, as Asadullah's answer was always the same - "I don't know anything about these people" - these sessions were merely a bore: an inevitably tedious consequence, Asadullah suggests with a shrug, of being held captive in Guantanamo Bay.


Movies, school, football, warm weather, beach atmosphere, jesus freaking Christ, throw in some women and you've got paradise...oh wait! They have those too!

It goes on:
On January 29, Asadullah and two other juvenile prisoners were returned home to Afghanistan. The three boys are not sure of their ages. But, according to the estimate of the Red Cross, Asadullah is the youngest, aged 12 at the time of his arrest. The second youngest, Naqibullah, was arrested with him, aged perhaps 13, while the third boy, Mohammed Ismail, was a child at the time of his separate arrest, but probably isn't now.

Tracked down to his remote village in south-eastern Afghanistan, Naqibullah has memories of Guantanamo that are almost identical to Asadullah's. Prison life was good, he said shyly, nervous to be receiving a foreigner to his family's mud-fortress home.

The food in the camp was delicious, the teaching was excellent, and his warders were kind. "Americans are good people, they were always friendly, I don't have anything against them," he said. "If my father didn't need me, I would want to live in America."

Asadullah is even more sure of this. "Americans are great people, better than anyone else," he said, when found at his elder brother's tiny fruit and nut shop in a muddy backstreet of Kabul. "Americans are polite and friendly when you speak to them. They are not rude like Afghans. If I could be anywhere, I would be in America. I would like to be a doctor, an engineer _ or an American soldier."



Everything and anything about the horror stories about Gitmo are now a joke, let's no take any of those complaints seriously again. For the love of god, they're interviewing those boy in Afghanistan away from the so-called American captors.



I now consider this whole brouhaha about Gitmo to be closed, sealed and shut.

Most people pay good money to go to Cuba or get an education. Maybe we should start charging them for the privilege?

:P

Didja hear some of the things human rights groups cited as "torture" techniques in Gitmo? Giving prisoners the same food as the soldiers! Putting the air conditioning on in the middle of a hot summer's day in the Caribbean! Playing the Rolling Stones and Metallica!

It sounds like Spring Break for los tabernacos to me.

Isn't it funny how left-wingers are prone to comparing Gitmo to concentration camps while some Nazis claim that life in the concentration camps wasn't so bad afterall?

At the end it turns out that both groups (assuming they are indeed two distinct groups) are wrong.

HAHA! Actually there is one small difference...the meat is catered to their religious dietary cood. (Hallal meat, equivilant to Kosher food for Jews).

Yea, I had a buddy who was Catholic and was never molested by his priest. He said that he learned alot and it was fun. So lets put that to rest as well.
Oh yeah, and I read this story about a black man who was a slave back in days of slavery in the USA. In it he says that his master was very kind and taught him to read. ENOUGH about how bad slavery was, obviously bullshit.

Nice try.

Ok, find other evidence.

We have evidence for slavery being bad and the catholic thing.

It's not just accusing the Church, you know.

Are you effin' serious?? Did you never stop to ask yourself, what are those kids doing at Guantanamo in the first place?? Are we really in the business of rounding up children at gunpoint, shipping them in chains halfway across the world, and holding them in prison camps to undergo daily interrogations, when their only crime was to be in the wrong place at the wrong time?? And you folks not only find this to be perfectly acceptable, but in fact evidence of our moral superiority as well?? My God.

That the US - and by our silence, Canada as well - is now in the business of capturing and holding innocent children - kids - in prison camps is a story to be absolutely ashamed of, regardless of your political views.

(And btw, did it not occur to you that children held at Guantanamo were perhaps treated with a touch more leniency than adults, and could hardly be held up as the norm?)

Unfortunately yes.

You can thank the terrorists who fit children with bombs and make them attack innocent civilians for that.

We live in sad times. But you are not suggesting any alternatives either.

Did it occur to you that all the "reports" on Guantanamo you have heard were actually just made up because the UN refused to go there and look at it?

This report about the children is the only info we have.

Arabian Knight,

I found your blog through Nadz-online. Like her blog, I find it refreshing to hear an arab with right of center views. Being a lebanese-american thats also a US Marine, I very much agree with your opinions. Keep up the good work!

Thanks Zak! I really appreciate that.

What do you think would happen if a 17-year old Army soldier/Marine was captured in Iraq or Afghanistan? Do you think the Jihadis would treat that young American in the same way that we treat them?

Isn’t football the game of the infidels?

If a soldier/Marine ever escaped captivity from Jihadists, do you think he/she would say the Jihadists are 'great people'?

A little common sense is in order.
