The rocket launcher wasn’t mine. I just wanted Osama to autograph it for a ‘friend’.
A neighbour of David Hicks, observing the Hicks cell relaxing at the family home, the night of the get together to wish Dave 'Welcome home son!'
"Gee, thanks, mate. Could you just write ‘To Dav...sorry, to ‘Wozza’, my favourite apprentice killer and junior sleeper cell member, the Big O. Lots of hugs and kisses! PS. Keep up the cheering and remember, a day not making a bomb or beheading a kidnapped civilian is a day wasted. Love Dave".
One of the worlds few fully trained Bogan Terrorists, the dumb, venal phoney and liar David Hicks, is apparently a victim, your hero and worthy of massed resources for his what, Sainthood? I guess now that Mother Theresa and Mandela’s positions are vacant....Nurse! The sheets!
All along, Dave was apparently just a foolish and ‘likely young lad’. He was merely like a schoolgirl in love. All in a dizzy tizz with an endearing crush on the zany antics of the horrible in every way, yours truly in a cave somewhere, the ‘Very Unlikely Laden’.
"He loves me, he loves me not. A toodle toot".
The 'Hickster’ was training for extreme and brutal acts for use against almost everybody and I wonder, yes I do, how exactly that training was conducted and with the use of what equipment? Don’t terrorist groups sometimes like to train with live prisoners in a kind of dry-run, unless of course the blood starts spraying everywhere? Is any of this, I dunno, of any serious ah, consideration? Nah, guess not. How zany and madcap!
And in his letters, the allegedly happy little master plan was merely to bring down Western Civilisation. Uh right, ok, and after lunch?
"Well, contestant number one plans to make a lot of money! What a swell, why you’re the cat’s pyjamas!"
'Hicksy' or 'Mohammed Dawood', or more of a 'Dagwood' really, has been detained for four wasted years of his recently rather pointless life and along with other prisoners, was possibly mistreated, and mostly not mistreated at all. It is though, a little hard to see Mr Hicks and the Muslim Brotherhood as reliable sources if you know what I mean.
Yeah, Hicks was apparently so badly treated, he put on 20 kilos! Riiight.
All this while receiving more benefits and concessions than such men perhaps deserve. Gosh, even receiving better room service than Al Qaeda provide to their prisoners!
"Hello, Room Service? Could you send me up a head? I seem to have lost mine. Thanks".
So far, over twenty formerly released G-Bay prisoners have turned up in later fighting. I guess fighting for those principles, eh?
Since their check out times, none have released a star rating for Guantanamo. Try getting back from anywhere else in much of the world if you allegedly do something that’s a teensy weensy bit naughty, like training to murder lots of people.
Personally I wouldn’t trust a strange beast like a military organisation to get a lot of things right at all, especially in the art of niceness, but they do of course. Though perhaps a lot more than the average Mission statement does at an Islamic Militant camp.
"Our Mission, just kill, kill, kill then laugh and love again".
It’s entirely correct to focus on the wrongful detaining of the innocent, and even for the worst of these prisoners, deliberate and violent bullying, assault and the taking advantage of these detainees is a violation of a position of extreme responsibility and a serious crime.
This is your case and it doesn’t require making the gross and absurd lie that Guantanamo is virtually the set piece for evil prisons in the world. I’m glad I don’t have the job. ‘Steely jawed Marines wanted for Maitre d’ and restraint duties at the charming but hostile, ‘Guantanamo by the Bay’. This position can involve sudden attack at any time and endless abuse by fanatical guests. Uniform supplied’.
Even military critics should admit that the army usually takes very seriously an adherence to rules. Re, the smooth running of said beasty. The military and authorities are dealing with a serious foe that clearly and repeatedly speaks of how for Islamist’s, Western law and due process are easily used tactical advantages.
Guantanamo Bay is the only ‘Hell on Earth’ that has regular Dental and Medical appointments, an extensive menu including Halal, vegetarian, Italian and Chinese and where bookings are not essential, but I hear there’s a bit of a rush for the Chef’s special after Ramadan.
There are clean sheets and clothing daily, courtesy of the ‘Yankee Imperialist Infidel Laundry and Temporary Mosque Catering Service. We cater for any anti-Western rants and even group beheadings. All cutlery is supplied’.
‘The G’ has fully functioning plumbing, air conditioning, reading material, regular visits from Imams and a ready supply of Korans wrapped in a plastic cover, then handed to Muslims by gloved guards so that the ‘Holy Book of the Religion of Peace or Else’, is unsoiled by the hands of the filthy all volunteer Infidels. I kid you not.
The support for ‘David the Hick’ is unfortunately often so deluded, bankrupt, misplaced and perverse that it doesn’t seem to exist on any serious level of thought and responsibility at all, at least not in this dimension. Allegedly there is country wide and mass support? Whether it’s two thousand plus protesters or two million, so what? Is it a good thing that any policy should follow this line?
"Davo' for Minister of Understanding, Peace and Love, Now!"
‘The Hickey’s’ supporters, or ‘The Rockettes Launcher Chorus Line’, often come over like the fund raisers of a fluffy minded cake stand for the non-innocent protégé’ of mass murdering arsonists, bomb makers, bogus charity thieves, rapists and head slicers. If this is Liberalism today, are the crazy pills that come with it available on Medicare?
Oh, that’s right, he didn’t do anything. He just trained for it! That’s alright then. Just dandy. What a laugh. What a prankster! When is ‘Herr Hicks’ next available to visit my son’s kindergarten? The kids would love it. ‘
"Ok children, this is called ‘plas-tic ex-plo-sive’ and this is a ‘but-chers knife’. Now all repeat after me, Allah Akbar! Excellent".
You don’t know how many seaside and holiday snaps I have of my Mother holding a machine gun, a flame thrower and other ordinance.
"Look! There’s one of Aunty Doris with a Glock pistol. Hmm. I don’t think I got the light right in that one. Too much exposure".
My wife and entire family are all Japanese. In Japan, if there was a similar perhaps unlikely situation there, the first and automatic reaction would be apology, shame, embarrassment and all at once, mixed with an acute urge to hide away and avoid any media spotlight at all. Not here, eh?
Instead we have the creepy, sad spectacle of Dave’s not too bright, tragic, miserable and drear old Dad, carrying on the family’s tradition of deep, perceptive analysis by endlessly parading around the world as a Leftist show pony. All the while being supported by various phoneys’ wearing their handy fancy dress of moral vanity presented as moral outrage.
Gee, I wonder where Dave got his sense of decency, responsibility and his sharp sense of right and wrong from exactly? Not from me, that’s for sure. I did though, have the strength of character to pass up that Adult Education short course on, ‘Improvised Explosive Devises in Urban Areas’.
The last time I saw ‘The Great Escape’ and ‘Stalag 17’, I seem to remember that under the Geneva Convention, you are only required to supply your name, rank and serial number. What were Davo’s again? When did he enlist? What rank did he obtain again? Head Cutter, First Class? And at what point was he going to reject this freely adopted and monstrous freak ideology?
Perhaps he was planning to after cheering at the 9/11 collapse? Nope, seems only when he was intercepted on his merry and irresponsible lark through radicalism.
"Gee, almost 3000 people of all ages, nationalities and religions murdered. Maybe that’s a little wrong, a bit out there. Hmm? No, guess not. Hooray for Al Qaeda then!"
This is part of why Islamo-Fascism Inc, it’s affiliates, franchisees and useful idiots in the developed world, can laugh at the flaccid, confused and complicated Western non-response, because the Boys and Girls of Islam, unlike us, are a little more determined and clear minded in who they are, what they believe in and what their ultimate goals are.
The West and those who get media time and the majority of the opportunities of influence appear not to be aware of their own potential for cultural suicide. We are mostly not curious about and are unaware of, unfocussed on and so very not serious about our own survival. It’s all a big recent joke and apparently without a nightmarish 1300 year history that you don’t need to research or bother about in the slightest.
Perhaps some of the reasons why the Americans and the West in general have handled this and more, perhaps so very badly and stupidly, are that the military is often a rather narrow, rigid and slow witted creature.
Sadly, sometimes the Government and the public are too, but then our Government unlike private citizens, must always conduct their responsibilities within global realities, the ones that are not always so kind. After decades of blind ignorance and denial, some Governments are belatedly and kind of ineptly responding to an ancient world Jihad and the reality of Islamism. Perhaps the American freak-out response is connected in no small way to the general non-registering of Western society to such a unique and historical imperative.
And what a drag it is that our very real enemy just won’t play by the rules. The cads!
Now in regards to whether ‘The Wonderful Mr Hicks’ should have been charged and then brought to trial much sooner, of course! And that’s your case and perhaps really the only one. But are we serious about how difficult this asymmetrical war without borders is to deal with? To put it in a laughably mild way, it’s perhaps a threat unlike any faced before.
Consider the limits of our bloated, lumpy Governments and societies and that the military is to justice, due process, logic and competent outcomes, as the disingenuous duo of Hicks and his seemingly shameless Father are to the great musical song writing teams of Broadway.
"My boy Dave! I don't give a hang what he does, as long as he does what he likes!"
The protesters et al; reflect rather curiously more than a little of the authorities’ often incompetence and our general malaise in seeing almost anything clearly. I find this mass myopia just a little like the ‘Tulip Mania’ of the 1600’s, but with dumb slogans and platitudes on placards plus bad documentaries.
"My illusions and myths are of real value and I’m willing to pay any price for them!"
Gentle reader, deep down or even shallow down, you know that most of the bad, sad and mediocre things said about ‘Hicksy Baby’ are probably true, and that some of the claims made in support of him and the outrageous motives attributed to the tormenters of ‘David The Martyr’, are easily researched and revealed junk. Being often politically and ideologically motivated and supported, maybe it’s all just a teensy bit unreliable? If you don’t agree, maybe you can just keep away from my children.
So there are no other worthy causes that involve innocents incarcerated in real ‘Hell Holes’ in the world? Try the Evin Prison in Iran, or the Towhid, Prison 59, Gohardasht or Prison 209. This is where the real policy is real torture and death of the burning, flaying, gang rape, flaying, breaking, ripping fingernails out, whipping with electric cables, hanging, strangling, and plucking of eyes, beheading or shooting, then dumping in the street of the resulting bodies’ kind.
This can involve male and females from infants to children, teenagers and the very old. There are hundreds of places like this around the world from Syria, to Saudi Arabia, Zimbabwe, the Congo and many other wonderful parts of Africa, North Korea, South East Asia, Pakistan etc, etc, etc. Apparently though, none are worthy enough to get the attention and avert the gaze of many from the brilliant white light, emanating from the ascendance of the ‘Cause of Saint Hicks’.
In much of the world where there is real and serious oppression, the authorities there can rest assured that there will be little chance of any deliverance for their citizens by the fatuous, vocal masses of the fashionable and morally vain West, resplendent in their stupor and nullity.
The taking on of worthwhile causes by faux rebels would be unlike a phoney fight with the flaccid, wooden and easily outmanoeuvred Governments of the West. This is especially so in the often context and depth free arena of the media, public opinion and one trick protest groups. It would require instead self reflection and actual risk.
Perhaps try standing on the steps of Tehran General Post Office with a few placards. Now that would show absolute sincerity and really would be brave and courageous.
