      On the Dandy Goat website there is a story about what Mos Def is going to do next - it's a lot more shocking than agreeing to be force-fed.

    Ridiculous! Before now I really thought there was something "bad" about this; but, no longer. In the very same way I've a 'surgical camera' inserted through my nose on several occasions. This is an uncormfortable feeling (go figure) but in no way as dramatic/painful as this video would make you believe. Frankly, I don't get it. Why post a video like this? What is the objective? Any, simple, canvass of a hospital would have revealed this truth and yet there is a "torture" video online? Shameful. Perhaps I'm just "dumb".

    My 2 year old uses an NG tube. It is not a comfortable experience to have the tube put in and we do have to hold him still, but it is not even a fraction as dramatic or as uncomfortable as what is being shown in the video- and he's 2, so as far as he's concerned 'it's against his will'. This video is incredibly misleading. (And yes, I am absolutely against the detainment of GB prisoners).

    Its a difference between wanting and knowing youre getting a tube put in your nose verses having one forced in your nose.

    Like get real says, its also the whole "forced" part, so it is traumatic and it is used as a way of torture.... would you still be saying no big deal if it that was being done to american soldiers overseas, or would you be crying foul like i am.

    People have to understand is a human right issue.

    I'd prefer to let them starve, as it would cost less, kill terrorists, and free up room.

    But good lords, what a sissy. It feels weird, and is not really comfortable, but it doesn't make you squirm and cry like a baby.
