Similar to our mistreatment of Native Americans, of Slavery, of theJapanese Prison Camps in WWII, GB is another hurtful US practice we must end. In a country which is proudly founded on civil liberties, human freedom and individual rights, this unlawful prison is simply Un American, and we admit our error in creating it, empty it, and make amends for the damage it has caused for all involved.
We need to close Guantanamo Bay within the next year. Doing so would be a great step forward for the United States, considering the long and controversial history of this military detainment center. Even other countries would laud such a decision to get rid of this base within a year.
I believe the United States should close down Guantanamo Bay within a year's time, if not earlier. I do not believe we need the facilities there and it is unjustifiable to continue that program. I do not see any reason why the American people should continue to fund this camp.
Closing down Guantanamo has been something we've heard about for years, yet we're no closer to it than we ever have been. It's long overdue, it needs to be shut down. Within a year would be great. Is it likely to happen? Considering the current president took office saying he was going to make it a top priority and it still hasn't, no.
What is the alternative to gitmo? There have been so many solutions posed by people about closing gitmo in X time frame, but everyone close to the issue recognizes that it's not that simple. President Obama was an outspoken critic of the base, but he's been in office for 5 years and hasn't closed it.
Guantanamo Bay should not be closed because there is no where else to house the prisoners. The terrorists ni the Guantanamo Bay prison are too dangerous to be released. It is necessary to keep them in prison in order to protect the nation's security. Known terrorists should not be released.
