Plan for Wheelchair-Accessible Cells at Gitmo Paint 'Chilling Picture' of Detainees Held Without Trial For Rest of Their Lives

Plan for Wheelchair-Accessible Cells at Gitmo Paint 'Chilling Picture' of Detainees Held Without Trial For Rest of Their Lives

Julia Conley, staff writer

Newly-revealed plans for expanding the Guantanamo Bay prison confirm that the future of the facility focuses on keeping detainees there well into old age—and likely for the rest of their lives.

This is an outlaw and fascist corruption of democracy and the “people’s” government
of the US taken over by those seeking Empire – “all roads lead to Rome.”

We’ve always been misfits and killers.

The now US/CIA government – attacking and leaving democracy behind for fascist
Empire – has been working in secret over the post-WWII era to enslave our own
citizens and most of the world through violence and secret programs.
Are we even now half slave and half free?
What freedom exists when almost 50% of the population have no jobs.
Where homelessness continues to increase – in NJ by 100,000 human beings in 2018.
Where 25% of American children live in poverty –
Where 45,000 American citizens are dying every year for lack of health care –
Where fake wars on terrorism in Afghanistan and Iraq have raged for almost two decades –
Where US “illegal wars of aggression” in Middle East for control of OIL continue under the
fakery of “Regime Change” and “terrorism.”

Now the Pentagon tells Bush: climate change will destroy us

It’s past time to end the war on terrorism. Any future terrorist acts must be dealt with, not by the military, but police, C.I.A., F.B.I., NSA, etc.
Soldiers come home, stand down or finish your enlistments, and we can save money. And eventually maybe we can save face.

But never fear, eventually you will be released. You just have to wait until the showers and ovens are finished.
Yecch!

There is no such thing as “indefinite detention.” Those who say there is are Islamist propagandists. Even lawful combatant POW’s may be held without charge or trial “until the end of hostilities,” as per the Geneva Conventions and Law of War. Unlawful combatants, such as the detainees held at the US military detention facility at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, are entitled to NO extra legal privileges. They are lucky to be alive. 731 detainees have been RELEASED from Gitmo, and NONE have been beheaded, executed, blown up, hacked to death, dragged naked and lifeless through the streets, drowned or burned alive, all things our Islamist enemies have done to us and/or our allies. There is NO moral comparison between Gitmo and the way our enemies treat their captives, yet the Left is SILENT on this fact. The Islamist equivalent to Gitmo is A PILE OF HEADS.

All this remodeling for Manafort and his wheelchair? We could only hope.

Fake “terrorism” – largely meaningless as pointed out by Pentagon to “W” Bush …
where Global Warming is the greater and more serious threat to the nation – the world.

As we can see they are still trying for the war on Russia/China – anything to renew
the fake Cold War.

They’re also working on some kind of a renewed (possibly mandatory) service for all
citizens? Unfortunately, haven’t had time to actually figure out the possibilities of that.

Because soldiers have no right to self-determination in regard to a corrupt government’s
wars – and now burden of service falls so greatly on the poor and people of color –
or mercenaries! . . . neither do citizens have the tools we need to protect these soldiers
from being exploited in fake wars for Empire.

Yes, these fake wars on terrorism need to be stopped.
