Britain Drinks the Kool Aid

Inquiring minds are watching the once Great Britain continue to commit suicide…this time by paying off Guantanamo Bay detainees:

Around a dozen men who accused British security forces of colluding in their transfer overseas are to get millions in compensation from the UK government.

Some of the men, who are all British citizens or residents, were detained at the Guantanamo Bay prison camp in Cuba.

The reasons were very well reasoned:

Justice Secretary Kenneth Clarke told the Commons that the settlement was “significant”, but had the cases gone to court, it would have cost taxpayers up to £50m.

The coalition government made clear in the summer that it wanted to avoid a massive court case which would also have put the British secret intelligence services under the spotlight.

Of course, if the country weren’t crazy, then the country wouldn’t give millions of pounds to terrorists, would it?

Is this not like a child saying that they shouldn’t be punished in public or else they will cry really loudly?

Western society needs to regain its maturity. Again, the argument is fallacious, at best.

Why would the defendants get 50 million pounds? Only because some judge says so. That is the fault of the judge. And the entity that appointed the judge.

And then there was this:

Mr Mohamed, from west London, was held in Pakistan in 2002 before US agencies moved him to Morocco, where he was tortured, before he was sent on to Guantanamo Bay in Cuba, via Afghanistan.

What is the definition of “torture”. Whenever a journalist uses a general term like this, bet that it is semantics. It is torture to a leftist progressive journalist but not torture under any actual legal definition or to a normal unbiased human being. If it was, then the United States would have court martialed the perpetrators.

Again, when is the west going to grow up and realize it needs to defend itself? When is the west going to realize that no one else is going to come and save it?
