“Celebrities” fasting in support of Guantanamo prisoners in no danger of dying unfortunately.

Roger Waters – Widespread disappointment registered at prospect of continued life.

​Celebrities are fasting in support of Guantanamo Bay prisoners who are being “left at death’s door” by a new Trump administration policy towards protesting detainees.

Since the camp was established on the US naval base on Cuba, prisoners have protested both their treatment and incarceration by launching hunger strikes. Under the administration of Barack Obama, who vowed to close the prison, military guards force-fed prisoners before their weight dropped dramatically.

Yet lawyers say under a new approach adopted by the Trump administration, prisoners on hunger strike are being allowed to physically deteriorate considerably further, as prison authorities engage in a game of “chicken” with the inmates.

    I wouldn’t look at it as a game of chicken so much as every one who kills themselves is one less problem.

      That goes for the celebrities too. If they really cared they would have a suicide-a-thon.

    “left at death’s door” eh? Well let me get that for you…, and don’t let the doorknob hit you on the way out…;)

    Celebs in Harveywood might better clean up the mess in their own world rather than devote their their energy to America’s enemies.

      The millionaire celebs (and the Independent newspaper) support Islamist war crimes. If the jailed Islamists weren’ committing such crimes, the celebs wouldn’t protest.

      What’s the difference between an actor and the Bermuda Triangle?

      • JoKeR

        Everybody knows the Bermuda Triangle doesn’t really swallow up seamen!

      At least he had the guts to complete what he started.

    So, I assume, they’re either not force-feeding the terrorists or are giving them a minimal “I.V.” of liquid protein.

    I guess the leftists forget that they used to go ape-shit over British prison officials force-feeding suffragettes on hunger strike.

    How times change.

    Knowing libs and “hunger strikes”, they’ll end it when it’s convenient for them.

      They are the only ones able to gain weight during a “hunger strike”.

  • barryjr

    Thankfully they aren’t violating the terrorists rights by force feeding them when they don’t want to eat their supper.

    As Churchill said of Gandhi during one of the latter’s many fasts, “Why hasn’t he died yet?”
