Kucinich: Gitmo black mark on US, absurd & lawless

A top US general says the hunger strike among Guantanamo Bay prisoners shows their frustration with the government’s failure to close the facility – rejecting reports it’s over mistreatment and the desecration of the Koran. The number of participants acknowledged by the Pentagon has now risen to 25 – but detainees’ lawyers maintain it’s more than one hundred. Former Democratic Congressman and two time presidential candidate, Dennis Kucinich, says Guantanamo is a symptom of America’s ongoing post 9/11 anxiety.

haha, well i should say that my psych prof. has rejected punishment as a valid procedure for extinguishing a behavior. positive reinforcement in operant conditioning rewards the subject for performing a desired behavior, negative reinforcement is the process of "putting a yucky" in the subject's way until they perform the desired behavior (nagging at a kid to clean their room until it's done).

punishment (pain after a behavior) leads to avoidance, aggression, and doesn't extinguish behavior.

There's just too much crazy shit going on, on every continent right now to make any sense of it.
Ben Barnakle has painted himself into a corner and he's trying to paint his way out.
The UK is Bankrupt, France is Fucked, N Korea bang'n the War Drums for attention, Israel's creating False Flags, Iran's playing with Fire, Cyprus is Screwed, Greece is Screwed, Spain is Screwed, Italy is Screwed
I think Antarctica is the only safe place to be right now, no politicians, no bankers.

obama did do something to get the nobel peace prize at the beginning of his first term, he cut a deal behind closed doors, that before he got out of office he would turn george bush over for war crimes, to the world court. this fake russian news media, also knows the deal has been made, they are part of the trap to set it up to happen, that american's except it without a fight. america was drawn in to iraq by saadam, for this very purpose, obama&russia are right off the drawing board. CHECKMATE!

I am aware of the situation believe it or not. It's the blanket "I blame the whole US" that gets me, It's prejudice since many of us are quite awake to what's going on, but government and media work overtime to suppress us. And with the presidential orders and bad legislation, it's getting dangerous to speak the truth in public. Social websites are starting to quietly censor their users, sometimes in plain view. Yes there are nutjobs out there, but they are the minority despite the official line

Kucinich is getting big fat weekly paycheck from Fox News. Honesty doesn't pay the bills. Rupert Murdoch does.

Schools in the USA do, indeed, educate their children and PUSH kids to question things before they put their full faith in them. I have observed that many, many times. So, you are wrong there. Please quit spewing bullshit.

It has always been about religion. It will most likely ALWAYS be about religion.

How would the death of one man end it? He was not as important to his organization as the media hyper him up to be.

Religion took a back seat in wars in Europe after the 17th century.

In some cases. But religion was always present, and always an issue. Minor, or major. Especially now, it is a major reason.

You are retarded, there is no other way to put that. Plain and simple, you are retarded to believe that.

Ken Shiro

Well, that is true. With the newest developments, politicians want the people to believe the religious fanatics are a threat to "freedom." When in theory, it is the politicians meddling in affairs that give root to these extremists.

They want everyone to think religion is a major role when in theory it is a guise and religion only plays a minor role.

Because nobody respects a politician that isn't making bank with their powers. Kucinich is dirt poor compared to his colleagues.

Some of these detainees might actually be some kind of criminal masterminds who would start plotting an attack on the U.S. as soon as they were released. But this seems very unlikely. Even if they were super criminals they would probably have no more success in attacking us than the terrorists who are currently at large. By releasing them we would strike a blow for the rule of law, which the religious terrorists oppose.

The terrorists think that execution or permanent imprisonment without a fair trial are great, they have no problem with it and use these tactics all the time. The question is if we want to be like them in using these tactics. When we give the President and the military the power to be judge, jury and executioner with no checks and balances we are on a dangerous path. What will future Presidents do with these powers?
