Ok, the Right's main argument to closing Guantanamo seems to be that there is nowhere or no one in America who will take these detainees until their trials. As a New Yorker, home of Attica, Sing Sing, Riker's Island and the Tombs, I say send us the mother fuckers.
Sheik yada yada thinks he's hot shit? Just wait till he meets Muhamad X, leader of some locally powerful black prison gang. And let's not even think of what happens to his ass when the Aryan Nations get a look at him.
Part of the Right's game plan is to make the terrorists into "super villains" in the comic book sense. The best example of that is the notion they propagate that the abscence of terrorist acts on US soil is proof of the superhuman effort of the Bush administration.
Death a near daily routine in Afghanistan, Mumbai held hostage for a weekend, Somali pirates at liberty to practice their extortionary trade (guess where a big chunk of that ransom money goes) and we're winning?
Mission fuckin Accomplished!!!
Lets concentrate on Afghanistan, Somalia and Pakistan, where unlike Iraq, the real Al-Queda, not the AA franchise: Al-Queda-in-Iraq, is operating. Let's really take the war to them. Let's prove the strength of our Constitution and let these bastards have every protection it offers any one of us. They will still be convicted and rot in jail because their crimes are palpable and emminently provable.
So bring us your terroists, your huddled bombers burning to be martyred, and we'll feed them boloney sandwiches with a side of man steak for as long as they need to be held.
