A completely ridiculous assertion which is based on the "blame America first" attitude of the far-left, of course... but wait, there's more! Let's say it IS a recruiting tool. Okay..... So the answer is appeasement? Remove it, just because the enemy doesn't like it. Great, and put the inmates into supermax. What if then, supermax becomes the recruitment tool? Let them out of there too? Of course! The precedent -- close the detention center because it's "become a rallying cry, a recruitment tool" -- opens the door to OBL or other IslamoNazi evildoers to say, "Well, that little deal of you supporting Israel for 50+ years is kind of annoying, we recruit from that. You won't let us kill them." Ok, P00F goes Israel support. Next item. "Well, this little habit you all have, of growing pork in massive amounts and eating it, and shipping it all over the world, this angers us." No problem! End all pork production, consumption, export and import! Next! "We... and this has been a recruiting tool for thousands of years.... We really DO need the world to convert to Islam....." Uh huh. This happens because the far-left does not recognize a large difference between good and evil. It's nothing but a huge gray area to them, there's really no true good or true evil in the world. This is why they do not understand evil and why they don't understand you cannot appease it! Stop this appeasement nonsense before it starts. President Obama, re-think your bogus position on closing Guantanamo, and cease the stupid blather about it being a "recruitment tool" to justify it.. It's a completely foolish reason no matter if you're right or wrong about it as a recruitment tool. So what if it is! They don't NEED one, they have many! Our very existence is the recruitment tool! It's really not important for Eurotrash to like us, and it's counter-productive to try to get the IslamoNazis to like us. You're not some lonely undergrad anymore, striving to be "the cool kid" like you wrote in your book. You are the leader of the free world, supposed to be standing up against the evil in the world not coddling it.
