WELCOME BACK KHADR?
Singalong to the tune from this show?
your schemes were your ticket out.
to our infidel place that you laughed about.
Well the game has changed since you flung grenades around,
Has your dream remained to burn us to the ground?
Who'd have thought they’d keep ya!
(Atleast you're still here breathin')
Bet you wish jihadn't been there?
(Off to Gitmo we'll be seein' ya?)
Yeah we tease him a lot, but they’ve got him on the rock,
Welcome back, welcome back, welcome back, welcome back"
That kid is OMAR KHADR , and he is a Canadian!?
He is also sitting in the Guantanamo Bay Detention Centre because the Pentagon alleges that he threw a grenade that killed a Medic during a gun battle in Afghanistan in 2002 when he was only 15. Now he is 21 and his Lawyers are trying to get him extradited and returned to Canada.
He grew up here in Canada but was taught to hate the West by his parents.
His father was a founding member and financier of al-Qaida who died in in a battle in Afghanistan in 2003. His Mother is quoted as saying "Let Them Have It" during the World Trade Centre attack. His brothers and sisters seem to have all been infected by the same philosophy of hate and destruction. One of his brothers was paralyzed in the same battle that his wonderful father was killed but came back to our horrible country of Canada so that he could take advantage of our fabulous Universal Healthcare System.
At the heart of this legal tug of war is the fact that Omar may be a complete asshole, but technically he is a Canadian asshole, and therefore we have to guard his rights..Damnit!
I can speculate without any fear of contradiction that 99% of Canadians would dearly love to have the entire f*cking family deported (yesterday) and sent off to scrounge around in one of their beloved al-Qaida training camps where they can merrily plot the end of Civilization as we know it. Seriously, if it is so terrible living here in the corrupt West then puh-leeze do us all a tremendous favour and f*ck off back to the 7th Century.
But it isn't that simple is it? Damnit! Now the Americans have had this "Canadian" boy incarcerated offshore in a quasi-legally sketchy limbo for years. The Americans are playing the The War on Terror TRUMP CARD...and there isn't much grey area here...
the rest of the world knows, you are either WITH them OR AGAINST them, right?
Omar's Lawyers are trying to drum up sympathy by releasing a video of Omar's shattered psychological state...if seeing is believing..and while most of us would not wish our 16 year old son to be tortured by a foreign government (if that's true) it is hard to feel sorry for this little asshole...
until you realise that he was raised to hate by his parents.
One of his other brothers admitted that they were raised to be suicide bombers...so shame on his parents.
I'm sure that the Canadian Government would not have any problem getting volunteers to help the Khadrs pack up their stuff ... but we need to remember that these kids were abused in Canada...and they aren't the only ones. I know that I sound like a broken record but the reason that this country is so great is because it is a secular country.
Welcome Back Khadr..the sooner you get back, the sooner we can deport you.
