Imitation is the Sincerest of Flattery

Back on October 25, 2009, M.E. had asked (Questions of the Week):

#3) - For which existing U.S. naval facility could this facility possibly (extremely unlikely, however) substitute?

Two days later we provided our answer:

Guantanamo Bay Naval Base - Since 2002, the naval base has included a detention camp for captured enemy combatants from Afghanistan and Iraq.

Three months later, we find this in Iceland's news, today:

February 1 2010 - Iceland Review -

Should Obama Send Guantanamo Captives to Iceland?

Chairman of Global Economics David Hale suggested in an article in the Financial Times today that US President Barack Obama should reopen a military base in Iceland and place the captives from the infamous Guantanamo camp there. ...He then says it is a fact that no country that plays host for an American base has ever gone into insolvency.
David Hale's proposal calls for the U.S. terrorist prison at the former U.S. air base at Keflavik rather than Litla-Hraun. As we stated earlier, a prison would be extremely unlikely. Better idea: Move U.N. Headquarters from NYC to Keflavik.

Imitation is the sincerest of flattery. - Charles Caleb Colton

Molten Eagle has become a very curious stop along the futurist highway.
