To the British …

An open letter to the British press and certain members of the British Parliament so-o-o concerned about the welfare of al-Qaida prisoners detained in Cuba.

You need to be reminded:

— The United States defeated you in 1776 for our independence.

— When you invaded this country in 1812, we kicked your butt.

— Between 1940 and 1945 we fought alongside you so you wouldn’t have to learn to speak German.

Where do you come off now telling us what we should or should not do?

To you (and any bleeding-heart liberal in this country) complaining about treatment of the terrorists in Guatanamo Bay. I say: “Go to hell!”
