Trump canceled Obama's decree on the closure of Guantanamo special prison

17
From the US, there have been reports that President Donald Trump has canceled another of the decrees of his predecessor Barack Obama. We are talking about the decree, which provided for the closure of the American special prison in Guantanamo in Cuba.


The new initiative of Trump suggests the possibility of sending to a special prison, where people are held without trial for years, new prisoners. At the same time, Trump notes that "it is necessary to develop criteria for sending persons to serve punishment in Guantanamo." Thus, Washington actually admits that to date there have been no criteria for imprisoning people in this prison.

It is noted that the interdepartmental commission remains, which “will continue to consider the affairs of prisoners”.
Trump canceled Obama's decree on the closure of Guantanamo special prison


A special prison at Guantanamo was opened in 2002, against the backdrop of the American invasion of Afghanistan. Since then, the term “Guantanamo” itself has become synonymous with the Nazi concentration camp. In this camp there were not only terrorists with a confirmed reputation of thugs, but also those people whose guilt was never proven. US prison personnel use sophisticated torture on prisoners, something that no international human rights organization actually pays particular attention to.

Press release of the White House on this background looks very cynical:
New actions by the President of the United States are essential to maintaining the capabilities necessary to eliminate the terrorist threat.

      One ordered, the other canceled .... What's the difference? Anyway, nothing is done and will not be done with it. I do not know the background, but I wonder how Khrushchev, Fidel, Brezhnev watched. Mercenaries were kicked out of the Bay of Pigs, but here - nothing ....
      That's really America - “I had a hut in a bast, and the fox had an ice hut” ... Well, if America went where it would be - Duc like bugs - only get kerosene. And that is not a guarantee. Although in some places it turned out - Vietnam alone is worth something ...

          No longer worth it, they got into it again with soap and green paper!

          For the time being ... History dances in a circle .... Sooner or later, the Poles in the stoves will start to burn again, and Vietnam will be "orange" and napalm again. Then all these ... CENZORED ... will remember the Russians again. And the monuments will be restored, and they will forget about green paper.

      Exactly !
      Trump notes that "we need to develop criteria for sending people to serve their sentences in Guantanamo."

      For the training of terrorists, for the outbreak of civil wars in various countries, for the numerous killings of civilians!
      Exactly left for yourself! So that they are not sent to Antarctica to serve later!

    All this is PR, Obama was engaged in self-promotion and in the course there was no desire to close the prison. And Trump is also engaged in PR, canceling the decisions of the previous one.

    What else could be expected from the puppet president of the United States, ruled by oligarchic clans, intelligence agencies and senators. The "lamp" of democracy and the global "defender" of human rights gave rise to another act of "humanity," "legality."
    “Funny,” all this coexists with the Christian faith. It is clear that the Anglo-Saxons, like the rest of “civilized” Europe, rewrote the basic principles of Christianity under their selfish and hypocritical essence, but sometimes it very seems that in such places as the Washington White House or the London Palace of Westminster, black masses are regularly held with human sacrifices. ..

    "1984" was written in 1948 year. These prophets also have in their own country. They are all guilty of what the USSR was accused of.

      When I read "1984" in 2004, there wasn’t even a thought about the "totalitarian" USSR. But by that time he had lived for dozens of years to clearly see America there. And the last few years - the farther into the forest, the more partisans ... Especially when you consider that the bombing comes under calls for peace, sanctions and the encirclement of Russia with bases for calls for cooperation, and the ideological sweep that the KGB never dreamed of - under the banner of the struggle for freedom, equality and democracy. Ministry of Truth, Ministry of Peace, etc. in pure form.
      By the way, when the “City of London - Air Force” staged a radio show on “80” at the beginning of the 1984, it seemed to me uninteresting - I didn’t see this in the Union, I wasn’t in the USA, and where it was - it’s worse than Orwell’s it happened.

    Trump will eventually become an honorary prisoner of Guantanamo, where he has the right place!

      It seems to me that in this equation the discriminant is not equal to zero at all wassat . rather, a trump near Moscow will become a personal pensioner somewhere in Kraskovo or Tomilino than a prisoner of guantanamo. He will send this striped stupid chicken coop to the dustbin of History, where this misunderstanding with the logic "E2-E4-give up" is the place. Bring to the zugunder.

    Thus, Washington actually admits that so far no criteria existed for imprisoning people in this prison.
