Fear and Loathing in Guantanamo Bay

But what about Gitmo meshes with the small government philosophy Republicans espouse? Each prisoner costs taxpayers $2.7 million annually, a massive failure on the fiscal responsibility front (federal prison, for comparison, spends $26,000 a year per inmate).

Even worse for conservatives should be the prison’s blatant trampling of constitutional rights. It has long been held by the Supreme Court that the Constitution’s guarantees of trial rights and habeas corpus apply not only to American citizens, but also to foreign nationals held on American soil. This was the basis of the 1886 ruling in Yick Wo v. Hopkins, in which a Chinese citizen’s conviction in California was overturned on 14th Amendment grounds. The universality of the Constitution’s protections was reaffirmed in 2008’s Boumediene v. Bush, where the majority opinion, the dissenting opinion, and even the Bush Administration all agreed that foreign detainees in American territory have constitutional rights to a formal charge and trial. The court ruled that Guantanamo Bay, which is leased from Cuba but under the United States’ complete legal jurisdiction, counts as American territory in the question of habeas corpus rights.

When Republicans support maintaining Gitmo, they are backing an expensive, lawless boondoggle out of fear, not any commitment to limited government.

President Obama said today that the missile that downed a Malaysia Airlines jet in Ukraine yesterday, killing 298 people aboard, was fired from territory controlled by pro-Russia separatists. A U.S. official earlier had told The Times that U.S. intelligence agencies reached a preliminary conclusion that pro-Russia separatists in Ukraine fired the missile. The U.S. is seeking further intelligence before reaching a final conclusion, the official said.
A powerful Buk missile launcher may have brought down the plane. Learn more about it above.


And they did it because…?It was done by west for propaganda purposes.

This Day In History: Firebombing of Dresden

letterstomycountry:

This day in history:

On the evening of February 13, 1945, a series of Allied firebombing raids begins against the German city of Dresden, reducing the “Florence of the Elbe” to rubble and flames, and killing as many as 135,000 people. It was the single most destructive bombing of the war—including Hiroshima and Nagasaki—and all the more horrendous because little, if anything, was accomplished strategically, since the Germans were already on the verge of surrender.

Among the conclusions reached at the February 1945 Yalta Conference of the Allied powers was the resolution that the Allies would engage in concerted strategic bombing raids against German cities known for war-production and manufacturing, in an effort to bring the Nazi war machine to a crashing halt. The tragic irony of the raid on Dresden, a medieval city renowned for its rich artistic and architectural treasures, is that during the war it had never been a site of war-production or major industry. Both Allies and Germans alike have argued over the real purpose of the firebombing; the ostensible “official” rationale was that Dresden was a major communications center and bombing it would hamper the German ability to convey messages to its army, which was battling Soviet forces at the time. But the extent of the destruction was, for many, disproportionate to the stated strategic goal—many believe that the attack was simply an attempt to punish the Germans and weaken their morale.

More than 3,400 tons of explosives were dropped on the city by 800 American and British aircraft. The firestorm created by the two days of bombing set the city burning for many more days, littering the streets with charred corpses, including many children. Eight square miles of the city was ruined, and the total body count was between 35,000 and 135,000 (an approximation is all that was possible given that the city was filled with many refugees from farther east). The hospitals that were left standing could not handle the numbers of injured and burned, and mass burials became necessary.

Among the American POWs who were in Dresden during the raid was novelist Kurt Vonnegut, who conveyed his experience in his classic antiwar novel Slaughterhouse Five.

No allied military personnel were ever disciplined or prosecuted for crimes related to the Dresden fire-bombing.  

From a tactical perspective, it’s necessary to speak of colonists rather than of immigrants, and to stop affirming that the latter are victims of “exploitation.” Just the opposite, these colonists have come to Europe to live at our expense. Their invasion comes from both the maternity wards and porous borders (30 percent of French births are now of alien parentage and, if nothing changes, by 2010 Islam will become the largest practiced religion in France). We are suffering “a colonisation from below,” very different from the former European colonisation of the Third World. The gravity of the phenomenon has been compounded by Europe’s demographic collapse.

European colonisation was civilising: it brought many things to the countries involved and, contrary to the dogmas of the xenophilic Left, […] it had little effect on native culture. Rather, it (stupidly) reinforced Islam, laying the basis for its current historic assault on Europe.

In every realm, resistance to this colonisation and reconquest constitutes the single overriding objective of every European political project of the Twenty-first century.
