More Amnesty International Irrationalisms

Click on the title for the article.

Amnesty International says America is running a Gulag on Cuba and violating the detainees rights as prisoners of war. What a load of crap.

First, I'll quote the Hague and
  • Geneva conventions
  • to define a POW:

    -being commanded by a person responsible for his subordinates.
    -having a fixed distinctive sign recognizable at a distance.
    -carrying arms openly.
    -conducting their operations in accordance with the laws and customs of war.

    Sorry to y'all there at Amnesty Irrationalisms, but Al Qaeda does not meet these stipulations. Additionally, read on:
    Persons, such as guerrillas and partisans, who take up arms and commit hostile acts without having complied with the conditions prescribed by the laws of war for recognition as belligerents, are, when captured by the injured party, not entitled to be treated as prisoners of war and may be tried and sentenced to execution or imprisonment (FM 27-10 Par. 80).

    That's pretty clear wording.

    Something else that is pretty clear is that while Amnesty as an organization claims no political affiliation, this
  • Washington Times article
  • proves that the men who run it support liberal candidates. Of course they don't bring that perspective to work with them-right?
