DURBIN: 'On one occasion the air conditioning had been turned down so far and the temperature was so cold in the room that the barefooted detainee was shaking with cold.
On another occasion the air conditioner had been turned off, making the temperature in the unventilated room well over 100 degrees. The detainee was almost unconscious on the floor, with a pile of hair next to him. He had apparently been literally pulling his hair out throughout the night. On another occasion, not only was the temperature unbearably hot, but extremely loud rap music was being played in the room, and had been since the day before, with the detainee chained hand and foot in the fetal position on the tile floor.'
If I read this to you and did not tell you that it was an FBI agent describing what Americans had done to prisoners in their control, you would most certainly believe this must have been done by Nazis,
Soviets in their gulags,
While on one of her late fall journeys to the port of Ambartchik in the Arctic Ocean, the Dhzurma got stuck in ice, due to the early arrival of cold weather. Unable to break the ice, she remained in the frozen sea throughout the entire winter with the human cargo of twelve thousand men inside. The Soviets had no means to rescue them and they would not accept offer of the outside help, which came from an American weather station in the Arctic. In this they must have been guided by fear of exposing their slave system to the world. The entire load of men died of cold and starvation while still in her holds. Eventually the Dhzurma was freed from the ice in the spring and so was able to continue in the business for which she was designed.
or some mad regime -- Pol Pot or others --
that had no concern for human beings. Sadly, that is not the case. This was the action of Americans in the treatment of their prisoners.
Other than being chained, this was pretty much what my life was like for the three years I lived aboard ship when I was in the Navy. And no orange-glazed chicken for me!
Air Conditioning?? When I was in the military, serving in Louisiana in August with full equipment, we didn't have air conditioning either, not to mention all the soldiers in the gulf deserts right now. Ridiculous.
a chill wind doth blow between his ears..
If nothing else, one thing has been confirmed to me from this rant - rap music is bad.
As Rush said yesterday on his radio show, we should all be calling Dick's office and thanking him for his utterances, and continue making them as they best demonstrate the depravity of this man and his party.
Nobody mentions that THEY WERE LAYING IN THEIR OWN FILTH!!!! It's conveniently left out that we weren't wiping their butts for them when they were confined.
Please forward this to all media outlets and durbin himself.
Al-Jazeera is now reporting:
"US Senator stands by Nazi remarks".
He is a traitor. He says he supports our troops but this is how he treats them??? He is also a liar!!
I understand his statements perfectly. See, it's not that we TORTURE like the nazis, soviets, or khmer rouge, it's the APPEARENCE of the chained prisoners he's complaining about. It's all about appearances. Liberals don't know the difference between appearances and reality.
Warning: Graphic images follow.
The picture below is of a prisoner at the Abu Ghraib prison being tortured by dripping nitric acid on him. This was a matter of routine under the Saddam Hussein regime. Tens of thousands were subject to similar torture methods.
Why does this remind me of the following?
"They told stories that, at times, they had personally raped, cut off ears, cut off heads, taped wires from portable telephones to human genitals and turned up the power, cut off limbs, blown up bodies, randomly shot at civilians, razed villages in fashion reminiscent of Ghengis Khan, shot cattle and dogs for fun, poisoned food stocks, and generally ravaged the countryside of South Vietnam..."
That's cruel! I suggest mandatory bathroom breaks from the shackles every two hours. More frequently if the prisoner so requires and requests.
The depends go on the head.
>" the air conditioner had been turned off, making the temperature in the unventilated room well over 100 degrees..."
Geez. My employer (a community college) in the San Fernando Valley (southern CA) only recently installed A/C. For years, I brought a thermometer to class during summer semesters -- and we (the students & I) marvel at the 100+ temps in the classroom, as we persevered and pushed on, with the lesson.
My classes were difficult -- but I'm no Pol Pot!!!!
The democrats are digging their own mass grave.
Why don't the Dems bother asking about the CIRCUMSTANCES under which some of these "detainees" were captured -- for example, many were captured in battle, committing blatant violations of the Geneva Convention -
Dressing as pregnant women (with bombs attached), attempting to detonate near our troops (wearing civilian clothes is a violation of the Geneva Convention BTW - making them ILLEGAL COMBATANTS in this case);
Waving a White flag, -- and then raising a weapon and shooting as our Troops approach (ANOTHER GC violation), etc.
Because NO UNIFORMS ARE WORN by terrorist insurgents, nor can they provide an actual rank & serial number -- this means it is IMPOSSIBLE to return them to their countries. Since they'd eventually RETURN to the battlefield, they would be UNTRACKABLE, for purposes of this GC war crime violation (returning to the battlefield after capture & repatriation), and prosecuted.
So -- we hold em. IF they don't want to be "held" -- don't shoot at American & Iraqi forces!!!!!!
AT G'TMO SOME OF THEM HAVE IT WAAAAAAAAY TOO EASY
I think the most effective way is to email his contributers:
Hurt him where it counts!
By the way, that's Nelly singing "Hot in Here."
How is that traitors like Durbin and McCain get elected?
