Forced Feedings Are Exactly Like A Crushed Skull
According to the genius doctors protesting the treatment of Gitmo hunger strikers, that is. In an oddly repetitive news article/press release, we find that some doctors believe that "there are strong parallels between the Biko case and the ongoing role of US military doctors in Guantanamo Bay and the war on terror."
No, there are only 'strong parallels' here if you are a leftist with an agenda. Steven Biko was a dissident in South Africa back when it was still an apartheid state, who was arrested at a roadblock. He received serious head injuries from the police, and died soon thereafter. How is this at all like the treatment the detainees at Guantanamo Bay are receiving? Are the doctors claiming that the soldiers at Gitmo deliver serious head blows to the prisoners there? Are they claiming that detainees are being murdered there? Just what proof do they have that anything remotely like Biko's treatment is occurring?
The doctors then complain that the military doctors at Gitmo are not being brought up on charges for - get this - force feeding hunger strikers. Don't you like the little Catch-22 at play here? These very same doctors would be complaining the loudest if the military just let the hunger strikes take their course.

That is one of the more ridiculous things I have ever heard.

I have heard it before. In mental health, patients who are force-fed with an N-G tube have sued hospitals to get it removed. I have never seen one win, but I have heard attorneys arguing for that right in court, with this same force = mistreatment = torture mentality.
