Simple concepts to ponder before closing Guantanamo

British Bulldog quote:
"A prisoner of war is a man who tries to kill you and fails, and then asks you not to kill him." [Winston Churchill]
For the sake of mutual comprehension between the concerned parties, let's have that in Arabic
سجين الحرب رجل يحاول قتلك ولا يتمكن، وبعد ذلك يطلب منك أن لا تقتله
And, why not, in Persian too:
اسیر جنگی کسی است که میخواسته است شما را بکشد ولی موفق نبوده است , و بعد از شما می خواهد که شما او را نکشید
You never know. Could come in handy.

More versions for the global understanding of this very simple concept to ponder before closing Gitmo here.


Under Reconstruction

Hey, where's all the stuff?

I am rebuilding the site from the ground up.

As of January 18, 2021, only basic blogging is implemented.

Features that were previously available—and a bunch of new ones—are still under (re)construction, and will be deployed gradually as soon as they are ready. That includes the site-wide search engine, the blogroll, membership registration and, well, more...

So all the stuff is coming back?

Yes, thank you for your patience.

Note that some of the legacy content (anything I published before the current redesign) may not display as expected—this will be addressed in the future.
