US: Taking your own life is an act of war.


The suicides of three detainees at the US base at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, amount to acts of war, the US military says. The camp commander said the two Saudis and a Yemeni were "committed" and had killed themselves in "an act of asymmetric warfare waged against us".

Lawyers said the men who hanged themselves had been driven by despair.

Taking your own life is now being seen as an act of war? At first I assumed it was sarcasm or a bad joke, but then I read the story on the BBC website and was baffled by the absolute idiocy of the statement. Clearly once again the US has sunk to a new low. How fast things can change, just a few years ago the US was a respected nation, leading the world by example, it now is a laughing stock of the international intellectual community, a rogue state flirting with bankrupsy which does not respect basic human rights and is not even capable of reasoning by logic, since I am not even capable of detecting the slightest bit of logic in the camp commander's statement. .

If taking your own life after being inprisoned without a trial, a clear charge, or the prospect of a fair trial and regural subjection to torture is an act of war, surely crying when they torture you might be interpreted as a nuclear threat.

Sieg Heil America, land of the free, home of the slaves.

Comment "Many/most Americans have no idea about the dubious nature regarding the circumstances of why many people ended up in Guantanamo. Many people arrived in Guantanamo because they were denounced by neighbors and personal enemies… for cash rewards." Right about that. Even Afghan cab drivers have accused their rivals of being violent Taliban just to get a competetion break. I kid you not.
