Asymmetric Warfare

____________________________________

SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico - Three Guantanamo Bay detainees hanged themselves with nooses made of sheets and clothes, the commander of the detention center said Saturday. They were the first reported deaths among the hundreds of men held at the base for years without charge.
-------------------------------------------
They hung themselves with fabricated nooses made out of clothes and bed sheets," Navy Rear Adm. Harry Harris told reporters in a conference call from the U.S. base in southeastern Cuba.

"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."


Taken from their homes. Never charged with a crime. Drugged. Tortured. Degraded.

Now their only epitath is the callous words of this "man" Admiral Harry Harris.

For now, we can only be the voice for the voiceless and pay attention while the rest of the country hides it's face.

For now.

But, Admiral Harris, the man who has been the overseer to this torture chamber, I will remember your name.

"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."

huh???

no desperation, sure! You know: What must not be, Cannot be! Americans are the Chosen, Gods own Army of Archangels, so they can't do anything wrong - so every prisoner must be worth to be imprisoned - so every prisoner must be evil - and what could it be that "evil" men kill themselves with every tool they can get? It must be...

yes, "asymmetric warfare against" the angels...

sounds like the logic of the mothers doing the crime of FGM (female genital mutilation) against their own daughters, their babies, trusting them, loving them, children with great eyes, chopped with some broken pieces of glasses by their own mothers - proving just one thing: you can teach a high intelligence everything, even the most stupid, cruel, abnormal nonsense, doesn't matter whether it is African or American, mother or general...

Godspeed to these uncharged and unconvicted victims of the empire.

I wish you each one virgin Ann Coulter clone to do with as you wish. And one Laura Bush. One Katherine Harris. Five Michelle Malkins (sorry). One Hillary-Feinstein confexion. The Quaker Oats "guy." And what the hell, one Mary Cheney as well!

The rest of the virgins are your pick.

Oh, THAT Harry Harris! The same NeoConNazi shill who claimed the detainees were just "pretending" to commit suicide the last time. Hmm. So is he truly a "Rear" [Admiral], or just an incredible ASSHOLE?? ==== Incidentally, see mine later, concerning the alleged brutal murder of Zarqawi *while* in US custody, for a remarkably curious "concordance" of phraseology that seems to have arisen in official military propaganda. Quite interesting that Harris ludicrously attempted to inject the same spin -- utterly nonsensically -- in *this* incident. I wonder if we'll soon be hearing how the "brave Marines" at Haditha also have the utmost "regard for human life". (They just don't have any compunctions about "raghead" life, I guess.)

Gen. John Craddock, commander of the U.S. Southern Command, said in the conference call that the three had left suicide notes, but refused to disclose the contents.

Of course they refused. They'd be nuts to publish more damning evidence. And as for the rest of the bull shit -
"They're determined, intelligent, committed elements and they continue to do everything they can ... to become martyrs in the jihad," said Craddock.

Yea well, like the bible - the Koran also considers suicide to be a sin and condemns suiciders to hell, so these 3 don't get the benefit of the virgins and the pearly gates - er, whatever they call the gates in Islam, ie - they don not become martyrs because their actions were an act of violence towards themselves, disqualifying them from the martyr race according to their holy books so......up yours Craddok.

Whoa! Let me take a second to commend our Blogmaster for his lack of censorship and especially good sense of humor. I wish I could say the same for CrooksAndLiars: lighten up C&L! No wonder their web traffic is declining.

Someone else had a similar take on Zarqawi's death.
