Up is down, red is blue,posted by The Vidiot @ 12:33 PM Permalink and a suicide at Gitmo is asymmetric warfare.
Excerpt: "They have no regard for human life," he said. "Neither ours nor their own. I believe this was not an act of desperation but an act of asymmetric warfare against us."The article goes on to say that these men had been held at Gitmo for over four years and had been on hunger strike and force fed. They had been held without the chance to see the evidence against them and they had no idea how long they would be incarcerated.
I dunno, indefinite incarceration, can't see their families, probably mistreated on a regular basis, hot Caribbean climate, no end in sight. Do you think they thought death would be a sweet release? You must consider that maybe they had such a high regard for life that they felt the need to do something drastic.
Holy Jeebus! When will the people in the US wake up to the fact that we have a bunch of sadistic criminals running our foreign policy??!
Suicide is terrorism.
