    With all the detailed and obvious malicious condescension, insult, and eagerness to provoke argument and rule infractions between the two of you (Slope and ADK), I bet you would see yourself as "victims" if I did my job against you, huh?

    Just curious.

    Hey Slop,

    You do understand that the US Military performs Waterboarding on US militray folks who go threw SEAR School along with certain types of Civilian folks who have to work let say for the UN in certain Teams(wonder what type of teams these could be).

    So if the US Military use Waterboarding then how can it be called illegal answer me that one please.

    And as for "body armor"....I'm sure you are aware that when I was in Somalia and Haiti.....and others were in Bosnia....that we had no "body armor" either. Despite the policemen on our streets having body armor for decades, the "soldier" alwasy deployed with mere fragmentation jackets. Funny how it became something the Democratic party cared abot when there guy wasn't in the White House. And even worse that slavery induced civilian followers sought it reason enough to care for the troop while aiding the partisan slave fest.
    I get a kick out of you, the way you turn every comment from a Dem re: support for the military, for YOU, into a bash on the Dems. I know you're out in the sun a lot but seriously, do you really believe Democrats don't want the best for our troops, for YOU?!?!?!

    You're probably also one of those jar/block heads who thinks a critique against the war, and those who run the military, is indicative of not supporting the troops, ehh? I assure you, no matter what you may have deluded yourself into believing that is not the truth. Not even close! Democrats bleed just as red as you do. You do not have the market cornered when it comes to a "vested interest"!!!
    Thank You Barack Obama for Restoring Honor To The Presidency.
    President Obama will rank as one of our greatest presidents!

    He is not, - by definition, - as a member of the USMC. He has not been accused of any doing which would point to him not to be a gentleman, which is the main obligation of a member of the club. You are. You have been demonstrating that you have no ability to be gentlemen. You belong to the club which has no obligations, responsibilities, dues or duties to carry on or pay for the country. A duel between 2 of you is impossible. You are void of duties, obligations and responsibilities by definition.

    Right, because you have access to the truth while the media is just making **** up.

    And as for "body armor"....I'm sure you are aware that when I was in Somalia and Haiti.....and others were in Bosnia....that we had no "body armor" either.
    The military and by proxy, the CiC is responsible for the welfare of our troops. When it is evident that our troops are not getting the support they need it's usually the military family that speaks up first; simply because they get the gripes from the troops first. So, the reason no one was bitching loudly about Bosnia, Haiti and Somalia is because (yes I know I said this already but you conveniently ignored it) we didn't have troops being killed daily DUE TO A LACK OF BODY ARMOR.

    Despite the policemen on our streets having body armor for decades, the "soldier" alwasy deployed with mere fragmentation jackets.
    And who told the American public about it so we could get on Congress? Oh, no one...

    Funny how it became something the Democratic party cared abot when there guy wasn't in the White House.
    Like I pointed out to you, there were many deaths occurring because of a lack of body armor and military families went to the media to get the word out. But you'd rather play a political game, proving that you are nothing but a partisan hack.

    And even worse that slavery induced civilian followers sought it reason enough to care for the troop while aiding the partisan slave fest.
    You lie and deceive and call us slaves...

    I notice you didn't want to answer the question. But I'll ask it again anyway just to make sure everyone can see your dodge. If you waterboard someone will you or will you not be prosecuted for it by either the military or the federal government?

    And international law is largely a joke.
    Really? That's how you view the laws we help write, agree to and become signatories to? So is it only our country that doesn't need to worry about international laws or are there others, in your opinion?

    Ask yourself why Africans are slaughtered under genocide with absolutely no international demand for action. Ask yourself why men can slaughter at will as long as they do so within their borders. International "law" allows this. Why was it "legal" to enter Haiti to correct a soveriegn issue to re-instate the president when it is not "legal" to topple a brutal dictator who slaughters, oppresses, and causes mayhem in an entire region? Why is it "legal" to stop genocide in Europe, but not "legal" to stop it in Africa? Because the UN said so? The same UN that declared our action over Kosovo as illegal? The same UN that looks the other way just to avoid having to address genocide? There's your beloved law.
    I don't know why you are trying to change the subject... oh wait, yes I do, you must be all out of argument.

    I do not concern myself with people's hypocritical and intermittent use of international law.
    Well good for you. Now go cry to the UN about how unfair the world is. The USA has it's own laws and one of them is that it's illegal to torture someone and waterboarding it torture. So simple even a jarhead can understand it.

    ........Sure. This is BS partisan politics at its best. No careerest was fooled by the Democratic Party's sudden "care" about the troops and nor was he/she surprised when Americans chose to ride the band wagon.

    Nobody cared about body armor after "Black Hawk Down." Nobody cared when Americans were entering Afghanistan. It only mattered when it could be used to protest a war they didn't want. The troops benefitted. But let's not pretend it was because of some noble sentiment of politicians or their dimwitted stooges sitting at home on the couch.
    It was military families that brought the problem to the media because their children were being slaughtered... same with the Helmet issue. See, you're trying to bull**** the wrong guy. Not only was I in the Marines but my son (still in the Marines) went to Iraq so I KNOW the truth about what is and was going on.

    This has been the MO for the CIA since 1947.

No matter what the involvement, as long as the CIA can be traced to it in some way, then the conspiracies and the dark shadows of American tyranny seeps from the tongues of the masses.

    And it all goes back to simply disliking the man that sits in the White House at the time of event.
    Information leaks out and over time documents get released. Ever hear of the Freedom of Information Act? But nice try from both of you.

    Are you threatening us with penalties, because you can't win an argument. Tell the truth and that might change. Bully.

    Hey, welcome to the discussion, sport. It's SERE not SEAR. Look back a few pages, we've already covered and debunked this one.

    So if the US Military use Waterboarding then how can it be called illegal answer me that one please.
    Because it's against the law. That's what illegal means. A limited form, under strict rules, for training certain people to be prepared for TORTURE that they might receive if captured. Now, please don't repeat your emailed talking point to any more of your neocon friends, doing so would make you a bold faced liar at worst and a deceitful jerk at best and you certainly don't want to be known that way, would you?

    By definition, he is a jarhead because he is marine infantry.
    He has been proven to be deceitful which is not gentlemanly.
