This is completely ridiculous. Nobody here is weak-kneed or cowardly about this issue. That is a common tactic that is flawed to it's very core, extremely lazy, and disingenuous at best (I'm being kind with my words).When we become a nation which acquiesces to the subjective moral views of the weak-kneed and cowardly then we hamstring ourselves and our future.
We are advocating that we don't act like those we claim to despise. Nobody is saying that we stop fighting terrorist organizations or abandon Democracy in favor of being subjugated by tyrannical foreign powers. Quite the opposite.
We are advocating that we fight the good fight. That we maintain a legitimate position of righteousness in how we prosecute our enemies. That we don't sink so low as to do completely unnecessary acts of brutality on prisoners for the purpose of fishing for information.
We should be above all that. We should be able to legitimately say "we are right, we are fighting the good fight, and we are above the cowardly and repugnant actions of our enemies."
We should be able to say that.
