    Hate is not healthy.

    No one has yet dies form water-boarding, but it has saved many lives.

    Even when they're terrorists.

    Really? And what 'moral authority' is that, and on what is it based?

    Gitmo is hardly a secret. It's became a tourist mecca.

    You made the claim that "Here was me thinking that the US was built on law, order and justice not mob rule thank god no one here has any political influence".

    I've never seen you use these words in regard to the United States. I see statements like this often, from Europeans, and they are intended to not only criticize American policy but to add hypocrisy as well. You've not given an example of "mob rule" anywhere, and you can't.

    Torture is not designed soley to kill, whether death happens as a result of the torture is a sign of how brutal the interrogators are. Torture is meant to inflict pain, to physically and mentally damage it's victims in order to break down the will to resist.

    Water boarding is torture, it is subjecting the victim to feel the effects of drowning. It is torture.

    Not saying America = NAZI state but nazi secret police used camps to starve people then shifted them to other camps saying they were "sick". Seeing as all this crap is secret how do we know this isnt going on under America's wings also? Shut the prisons down.
    How do we know it's going on the way you say?
