I Cannot Afford to Eat Ice Cream on a Tropical Island, But…

Assigned Reading: Uighurs Live it Up in Island Paradise
(FROM: UK Daily Mail)

He and his companions have traded drab prison jumpsuits for comfortable cotton pants and knit shirts, and razor wire-encircled jail compounds for beach cottages, where they are staying at U.S. taxpayers’ expense.

Not only did Barack Obama’s White House and State Department “run roughshod” over the Brits, as this piece is careful to point out, but now you and I are paying for these four Uighur terrorists–people who consciously decided to train with al-Qaeda and the Taliban in order to take up arms against the Chinese–to eat ice cream and live beachside in Bermuda.

Of course, I would absolutely love it if these Uighurs are exactly the way the Daily Mail portrays them to be: peace-loving men determined only to fight back against China and nobody else. If they are, then I sincerely hope they live and prosper in happiness and freedom. But simply taking these people and releasing them to go fishing and open a restaurant seems like a giant leap when baby steps might be in order.

Regardless, this story presents another unique opportunity for the GOP to distinguish itself from its Democrat counterparts currently running the show and dictating policy on Capitol Hill. First, the American government decided to free these detainees on an island belonging to another nation, without telling that nation’s government. Second, even though they once saw fit to detain these Uighurs, now that they are free, their lifestyle is now financed by an American people already struggling to maintain their own. Part of the money which comes out of each American’s paycheck is going to the butter pecan ice cream enjoyed by these four Uighurs in their little island paradise — that point alone should be hammered home to everyone who will listen.

    The whole story is beyond believe and any imagination.
    Very well written piece.

  5. UIGHUR U.S.O. says:

    While they eat ice cream, our boys eat MRE's while dodging RPG's….. this world is some kind of screwed up. Thanks Barry.

    Is this what "…with liberty and justice for all" means?

    I'm a conservative. Send ME to Bermuda!

  7. LONG WALKS ON BEACH says:

    The ONLY way that Bermuda detention could get ANY better is if our handsome Barack was prancing on the beach shirtless with his fellow Muslims.

  8. Claudia says:

    You alllknow that those loving guys from China are there on our dime — well that dime is $200 MILLION PER YEAR to Bermuda, for their detention…… that is a total insult and slap in the face of every American, and I personally resent Obama and those let out of detention Uighurs for waht they are taking and for what they did to or took part in doing or teaching to others about how horrible the USA is, anad here they are living a life of luxury off of us, whom they totally despise.

    Anyone know how long we are going to be paying for these people to live in Bermuda? That is outrageous. This is going to encourage more people to take up arms against us. Especially if they get to live on a beach the rest of their lives on our dime.

  10. HAS THE JURY REACHED A VERDICT? says:

    To be fair, lets sentence any convictions in our UCMJ trials and court martials to 20 years in Waikiki…. we could close Leavenworth!

  11. ANSWER PLEASE says:

    To follow this reasoning shouldn't Tim McVeigh have been sent to the Bermuda beaches as well?

  12. SCRABBLED EGGS says:
