I am interested in finding out how wearing an orange bracelet/ribbon = wanting the terrorists to win.
LordDilly, what does "winning" even mean in this war?
Besides, I think the equation silence + torture = complicity is a great reminder for those who "don’t mind" the moral gray area in which Guantanamo exists. What good are the confessions being milled out of the prisoners IF (little word, big consequences) the prisoners are being tortured.
And on that point, I am not going to make the judgment one way or the other. I can not. I have not seen, nor do I have credible evidence of torture at Guantanamo. BUT the Justice Department, the destroyed CIA tapes and the CIA’s contradictions about extraordinary rendition are all clouds casting a dark shadow of doubt on the supposed benevolence with which the Guantanamo detainees are being treated. Right?
I mean, Dilly, come on. How knee-jerk is it to believe anyone wants our soldiers to be killed? Or wants the terrorists to "win"? Do you really think there will be any winners in this war?
And I don’t think anyone really hates Bush. At least I don’t. I think most people (and I may only speak for myself) are frustrated that the policies his administration supports consistently favor big business over finding long-term, sustainable solutions to security, environmental and economic problems.
I add security to that list because this administration’s solution for dealing with terrorism is far from fitting any definition for sustainable or long-term.
