Re: Next Add-Free Day
Ah, but the Guantanamo Bay abuses are in violation of human rights, or must be assumed to be so in light of the fact that the US refuses to allow the UN to inspect the facilities. Who must answer for that and to whom must they answer for it? They are not violating US law, they are on another nations soil and that nation by whatever mess of treaty or whatnot don't have control of it either.
So now we have a situation in which the US is in violation of international law, but not violating the laws of any individual state. If there was to be a trial it would have to be at an international level which, as many suspect, is probably the reason we refuse to participate fully in such a court system. We would then be held accountable the same as anyone else and equality is the last thing we want.
And as for being tried in a country where Al Qaeda doesn't operate, isn't that the unbiased trial which is the basis of the US court system? While we prefer to have the trial locally to the crime, we also allow changes of venue specifically for purposes of running the trial in an unbiased, unaffected locale.
How far do we extend the blame? Does the 5 year old who says "My daddy is Al Qaeda so I am too" get to be on trial for murder?

Re: This just reminds me why we are this way....
Please don't represent the US in any forum again. Your drivel is lacking much in the way of wisdom. You don't understand, just for starters, that insulting people is rude and doesn't get your point across.
Moreover from what follows your misogynistic tendencies become clear and you are simply too shortsighted to understand that the world you can see is not the entire world as it exists. Go suck some car exhaust, and if you live, come back and tell us how pleasant it was to breathe such clean and non-toxic fumes that are obviously not causing harm to anyone.
Anyone who is pro-pollution is anti-life and shouldn't be allowed to ruin it for the rest of us.
