Like a broken clock that is right twice a day, China is right and we are wrong . . . for once.
The U.S. has decided to release five Chinese Muslims suspected of terrorism from Guantanamo Bay. But unlike other political prisoners in China–who are NOT Muslims, the U.S. is worried about the safety of the Uighur (pronounced “Wee-gur”) Muslims.
So what is our silly government doing? It is sending the five Muslim Chinese terrorism suspects to Albania–because Europe, and particularly the Kosovo region, does not have enough radical Muslims who are trying to take over and make their religion predominate all others.
China blasted the U.S. and demanded their return to China to face punishment. China says they are suspected members of the East Turkestan Islamic Movement, which has links to al-Qaida and has received arms and training from the terrorist network. The Islamic terrorist group is waging a violent separatist campaign in China’s northwestern Muslim region of Xinjiang.
But rather than worry about whether they are terrorists, our government is worried China will give the men death or subject them to torture. Our humane government. Humane to the point of stupidity–and extinction.
Maybe we should call it “Abu Ghraib Bend-Over Backward Syndrome.”
