The past few days a number of misguided politicians have attempted to equate U.S. military personnel and the Guantanamo Bay detention center with Stalin's henchmen and the infamous Gulag slave prison.
These comparisons are completely untrue and smear the reputation of our proud troops who have conducted themselves with the highest character and morality in Operation Iraqi Freedom and Operation Enduring Freedom.
In fact - the prisoners of war held at GITMO (Islamic terrorists determined to KILL AMERICANS and other westerners) are treated in many ways better than our own soldiers, Marines, sailors and airmen.
Consider the differences in the meals eaten by the terrorists being detained at GITMO versus the meals eaten by OUR soldiers in the field. Terrorists eat Orange Glazed Chicken Rice Pilaf Steamed Peas and Mushrooms and Fresh Fruit Roupee, while OUR men and women in uniform are eating MRE's. Freeze dried Meals Ready to Eat.
Other recent dishes include lemon-baked chicken. Under restrictions imposed by Congress it would be considered "abuse" if the terrorists being held at Gitmo were to be served an MRE - in other words the food our troops eat is not good enough for the Islamic militants detained at Guantanamo Bay.
On Ramadan the terrorists and terrorist suspects being held at Guantanamo are given lamb with honey and dates. They are also given prayer beads and prayer oil.
ALL OF THIS PAID FOR BY U.S. TAXPAYERS
As Congressman Duncan Hunter noted, "if you did that for American GI's - if you had a call to prayer five times a day - the ACLU would sue on the basis that we violated the separation between church and state."
I Y GITMO: LOCK THE TERRORISTS UP!
