Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I'm amazed by the twisted logic:
"These are unlawful combatants, they are not American citizens"

Even assuming that they all are unlawful combatants (what does it even mean? Fighting for the wrong side? Is bombing civilians lawful? If not, all American soldiers are unlawful combatants), I can only ask: "so?".

They are not American citizens -well, that should not change their right to habeas corpus. Whatever you charge them with.

Earth provides enough to satisfy every man's need, but not every man's greed. Gandhi
