    Thumbs up The Afgan Detainees and the bleeding hearts

    This was written by a Dr. in Texas, please read.

    I was just reading Yahoo news and the San Antonio Express
    newspaper.You know what upsets me? People with absolutely nothing to
    do with their lives, so they complain on how the U.S. is treating the
    prisoners or "Detainees" from Afghanistan.

    Do you know why they are complaining? They see a picture on the news
    or the internet and they see someone who is shackled and blindfolded
    and walking with two armed guards behind razor wire. This picture
    tells them they are treated unfairly.

    Here is what I see.... I see a thin, sickly looking person who under
    severe mental duress from being bombed, was cleaned up, given a
    haircut to prevent infestation of parasites, and given new clothes and
    shoes to wear. I see a person who is given three nutritious meals per
    day and a bed to sleep in in a tropical climate, not the cold desert
    floor of Afghanistan, eating worms, bugs, and goat. I see a person who
    will be able to get relief from their pains and illnesses without
    paying a dime for medical expenses. They will get rest, educated, and
    their mental stress levels will have dropped tremendously because they
    were taken out of a combat area and will not be shot at again.

    I see these people blindfolded and shackled behind razor wire. I have
    the intellectual ability to understand why they are this way. For
    those that do not have this ability, let me explain it to you. They
    are blindfolded to protect OUR U.S. SOLDIERS from further harm. These
    people can not plan to destroy something if they can not see it. They
    are shackled because these same people have proven they will easily
    give up their lives to kill just ONE AMERICAN. We are protecting their
    life as well as our own. The razor wire is a mental deterrent, just
    like the little alarm company warning signs most of you out there have
    on your home, but don't have the actual alarm system. You would think
    many times over before actually trying to cross that razor wire. For
    all of you people out there thinking how bad these poor detainees have
    it under such strict guard, you need to do a lot more thinking about
    other things in your life.

    I was born on September 11th, 1966, and every birthday I have from now
    on will never be a happy one. Why, do you ask? Because as I am out
    somewhere trying to have a nice dinner, someone will have a candle or
    a ribbon or something, crying about the anniversary of a national
    tragedy.

    And then I will think, about how insignificant my one little birthday
    actually is compared to everything else that had happened on that one
    day.

    It boggles my mind that there are actually people out there in this
    world, in leadership positions, head of companies that actually think
    that we are doing something wrong when it comes to protecting our
    nation and our people.

    These same people will be the first ones to complain about something
    that happens to them when they are vacationing outside this country.
    They will ask why the U.S. does not do anything about their
    misfortune.These are the same people that complain about taxes and how
    bad their lives actually are.

    If you receive this email, please pass it on . I am not afraid or
    ashamed to speak my peace. I am an American, my father fought for
    this country, and was willing to die for it.

    Good post, and I don't think there's a single person in the civilised world who'll ever forget those terrible events on Sept 11th.

    I live a few miles from Dublin airport (Ireland) and EVERY time I look up at an approaching airplane I remember Sept. 11th.

    All too often people see something and automatically jump to conclusions. They do not think outside of the box. They do not take a step back and ask themselves what some other possible explanations for this event could possibly be. Sometimes people just don't think.

    These hang human rights activist are killing me. Why don't they get their heads out of their asses and realize that the "detainees" are living better in cuba than they ever did in Afganistan. They are fed three times a day, they get inoculations. There is no one that can't say we haven't been more than accomidating to these people. We even gave them prayer rugs so they can still practice their religion freely. I hate all these bleeding heart liberals that use their emotions rather than logic to solve the worlds problems.
