Passport, Sir?

By ATWadmin On December 23rd, 2008


Guess where the terror rabble held at Gitmo’ are headed? According to anonymous reports quoted by the Washington Post, most are gonna’ be headed straight for Europe.

The Blessed Hussein (peace be upon his turban) has spoken, and therefore Guantanamo detainees will all be freed. As the Bush Administration lacked the guts to send the clowns back to where they came from, as some bleeding-heart was worried if they may be tortured or even killed, after getting what information was resident inside their otherwise empty skulls, the new Obama presidency has already figured out where they are headed, and; after all the bloody noise, steam and rhetoric issuing from the collective E.U. Governments about the ‘illegal detention of these poor, misguided, misunderstood patriots’ the collective Obama-thought is to encourage the slinging of all these murderous bastards over the other side of the pond.

So the Krauts, the Spics, the Wops, the Garlic-munchers and the ‘Rooineks are going to have to give these killers a ‘place in the sun’ because we cannot allow them to even worry about heading back to the fun-loving territories which they call home, because having exported the murderous bastards once, the Saudis, the Yemenis, the Syrians, the Afghanis and the Iraqis would slap a quick ‘fatwa’ on the lot if they returned, and we can’t have that, can we?

  1. Mike, there are one of two ways these people could be detained. You need to make up your mind as to which way. They are either criminals in which they are intitled to a fair trial. If they are not charged and convicted then they are released.

    If they aren’t criminals then they are POWs, in which case they are afforded a huge number of protections, which they haven’t been given.

    Either way, whether criminal or POW, torturing and murdering is illegal.

  2. More specifially, Mike, they will all be heading for soft-touch, human rights loving honey pot that is the good old UK.

  3. Worry not my friends.

    The omni-benevolent Irish shall take all those poor misunderstood souls in and bequeath them:

    1) A healthy social welfare allowance.

    2) Accomidations in the best of houses.

    3) Furnishings for their houses including 99- centemetre plasma screen Tellies.

    4) A substantial clothing allowance.

    5) Free legal aid so they can sue the sh*ite out of anyone who finds their "cultural" habit of slaughtering goats on their terrace the least bit offensive.

    6) A seat on the local council so they can become intergrated into the community.

    7) Free Irish citizenship to themselves, their consanguine family and their entire village. With the "first class" airfare to Ireland provided by St. Vincent de Paul.

    8) Unlimited access to naive young red-haired lasses who think the suave, dark skined chaps are in reality Oirish rebels in disguise come to liberate Ulster from the Brits.

  4. >>The Bush administration "produced the problem," Karsten Voigt, coordinator of German-American cooperation at the German Foreign Ministry, said in a telephone interview. "With Obama, the difference is that he tries to solve it." <<

    I love it! That a government official of a leading ally dares say the truth about the Bush administration shows how far we’ve come. International law breakers should realise that the truth will catch up with them sooner or later.

    Although in fareness, as the US took so many refugees when European governments were acting illegally and inhumanely, it is only right that we return the gesture now that the situation is reversed!

  5. Seamus –

    It’s you lot who need to make up their minds.

    Some say they should be tried as criminals, in which case they are treated as suspected criminals and terrorists, with the death penalty as a possible sanction.

    On the other, the Geneva Conventions apply, which allow for battlefield justice against combatants out of uniform and for POWs to be detained for as long as hostilities last.

    Either way, you cannot demand that the Geneva Conventions apply to those who will be tried. Since we’ve been around this mulberry bush before in the last seven years, it’s time you came down one way or the other.

    Choose one, before they end up in London.

  6. Pete,

    "On the other, the Geneva Conventions apply, which allow for battlefield justice against combatants out of uniform"

    But not non-combatants, a.k.a. civilians (also out of uniform).

    And not somebody lifted at some airport or far from any battlefield. (‘global’ war notwithstanding).

  7. I recommend that they be moved in right next door to the homes of each country’s Amnesty International chapter leaders.

    And don’t subject them to any fascist surveillance, as they haven’t been convicted of any crime. They’re innocent, I tell ya.

  8. Maybe we can send Bush to them instead (Only a few more days left!).

  9. He doesn’t want to live in Europe. Too many foreigners there.

  10. He says the same thing about Texas.

  11. Actually, he is understood to get along really well with Mexicans and speaks a serviceable Spanish. Its the English that he don’t do so good at.

  12. Phantom, he even once declared that he speaks Mexican.

  13. >>Maybe we can send Bush to them instead (Only a few more days left!).<<

    Anyone can find a place in Europe except Troll.

  14. Seamus

    No joke and not wrong either. I know someone here who is from Sicily and he is pretty firm on the fact that he speaks Sicilian and not Italian.

    The Spanish they speak in Texas and Mexico is muy differente from what they speak in Valencia, loaded with all kinds of Spanglish and different Spanish words

    For better or worse Bush was never a hard liner on immigration matters, precisely because he was from that area and has Mexican friends and neighbors. And some relatives too

  15. Phantom, do you speak American or English? An example of the difference. Spell the word colour? A dialect is not a different language. Only Ulster Scots supporters claim that.

  16. A really good question. I’d say English and can communicate in English/English ( and do so once in a while when speaking to Brits on business. But usually, we do what people do here- speak it in the way natural to the speaker, knowing that everyone understands )

    There comes a point where a dialect becomes another language,and we’re not there yet. I think

  17. >>There comes a point where a dialect becomes another language<<

    True, and there is no clear line for where or when it does.
    Even some officially separate "languages" aren’t even as different as dialects (such as Dutch and Flemish). The distinction is politically, not linguistically, motivated and is only in the name. A more painful example are the two "new" languages Serbian and Croation, which 15 years ago were one. Yiddish and "Luxembourgian" are simply dialects of German, and the latter has gone to ridiculous lengths to distinguish itself from its dialect parent, even spelling words according to their local pronunciation. Sort of like the familiar "The too of us no that this row is do to youre been stoopid."

  18. What I didn’t always know – Spoken Urdu and Hindi at a basic level are the same, and really are the same as far as the Bollywood potboilers?

  19. Oops, meant to add, in some European countries the English of the US is officially referred to as "American".

  20. Many languages are similar as they used to be dialects. English and German have the same roots due to Saxon invaders in England. Saxony being in the heartland of Germany. Just look at words and phrases in English and compare them to German. Gute Nacht, for example. They are near identical.

    There is a stage when a dialect evolves into a new language but it takes centuries.

  21. I have heard it refered to as American English, never American. But then I have also heard of Cockney English, Geordie English, Hiberno English etc.

  22. And in the world of TV it may take more centuries still. The slang produced in LA today is heard in London tomorrow. Didn’t used to be thus.

  23. Well slang used in LA today is heard in Belfast tomorrow and then those people who use it are thouroghly slegged and abused.

  24. As they should be.

  25. >>phrases in English and compare them to German. Gute Nacht, for example. They are near identical.<<

    The similarities are even more striking if you go to Schleswig-Holstein. There old people still speak the old Angels dialect, and a sentence like "He goes to the old house", which in standard German is "Er geht zum alten Haus" is spoken in this German dialect as "Heh go to de old hus", almost exactly as it is in English.

  26. I just remember something there. Phantom, this will probably be lost in translation, but Noel might have. On BBC, the show Have I Got News For You.

    There is a bit in that episode, about 3/4 of the way through, [you may have to watch the whole thing to find it – you won’t mind, it is very funny], where Charles Kennedy jokes about this sort of idea. Watch it. Very Funny.

  27. Sorry

    It says link only works in the UK

    So I guess you’re still in the UK!

  28. "It says link only works in the UK

    So I guess you’re still in the UK!"

    Unfortunately, both seem to be the case. They should change both.

    Another Link.

    The German bit is about 5 minutes in.

  29. Will check it out when I’m home. Thanks.

  30. Wo-oh. It’s Christmas Eve.

  31. The similarities between German and English is nicely demonstrated by this:

    " The European Commission has just announced an agreement whereby English will be the official language of the European Union rather than German, which was the other possibility.

    As part of the negotiations, the British Government conceded that English spelling had some room for improvement and has accepted a 5- year phase-in plan that would become known as "Euro-English".

    In the first year, "s" will replace the soft "c". Sertainly, this will make the sivil servants jump with joy. The hard "c" will be dropped in favour of "k". This should klear up konfusion, and keyboards kan have one less letter. There will be growing publik enthusiasm in the sekond year when the troublesome "ph" will be replaced with "f". This will make words like fotograf 20% shorter.

    In the 3rd year, publik akseptanse of the new spelling kan be expekted to reach the stage where more komplikated changes are possible.

    Governments will enkourage the removal of double letters which have always ben a deterent to akurate speling.

    Also, al wil agre that the horibl mes of the silent "e" in the languag is disgrasful and it should go away.

    By the 4th yer people wil be reseptiv to steps such as replasing "th" with "z" and "w" with "v".

    During ze fifz yer, ze unesesary "o" kan be dropd from vords kontaining "ou" and after ziz fifz yer, ve vil hav a reil sensibl riten styl.

    Zer vil be no mor trubl or difikultis and evrivun vil find it ezi tu understand ech oza. Ze drem of a united urop vil finali kum tru.

    Und efter ze fifz yer, ve vil al be speking German like zey vunted in ze forst plas. "
