    I was about 10 when Vietnam ended. Most of the people commenting on this subject where younger. Vietnam has nothing to do with this, though I can see why you would want to deflect attention away from the now, and onto Vietnam.

    "some people" also say that Bush was a good and honorable president but that certainy does not make it true.

    Fact is that under American law and under international treaties waterboarding is infact torture.

    Can't change fact...now all we have to do is bring the criminals to justice so we can learn and move on from this stain on our country.

    But can they do the rest of the world the courtesy and stop describing itself as some form of beacon for human rights and quit preaching and whining about what other countries do
    What we need to do is bury it in black-prisons again to restore our image.

    Image, reputation, 'moral standing in the world'...those are all superficial man-made social constructs. Real world necessity should never be sacrificed to protect them, so when the two conflict, bury what needs to be don so we can have both.

    Don't get me wrong, I'm not satisfied that waterboarding is in fact torture, but if it is, then I support torture when it proves effective.

    Holy crap, this is the same kind of rationalization that drove Josef Stalin. To him, image, reputation, and moral standing, were superficial too. Moral standing may be just a social construct, but it is what separates humans from animals. I will take a man-made social construct any day of the week over barbarianism. It is through man-made social constructs that we rise above it.

    You're dissembling.

    My point was clear and obvious. This constant debate over whether waterboarding is or is not "torture" is meaningless, substanceless, and irrelevant.

    Waterboarding was a technique used by CIA interrogators to extract actionable intelligence from Gitmo detainees. President Bush, having sought opinions from counsel in the Department of Justice, authorized the technique. Dear Leader, wisely or unwisely, has rescinded the authorization for the technique (for now).

    I'll happily defend the technique and its use in Gitmo interrogations all day long. As I have stated in other threads, I'll defend it even if it can be shown categorically to be "torture". Calling it "torture" does not alter the ethic of its use one iota.

    Thus when people go on about how they can't fathom people not calling waterboarding "torture", my response is a firm and decided "so what?"

    Me personally, I prefer the barbarians. They're more honest, more ethical, and generally more civilized.

    I thought 'the left' would be more open to Stalin as they passionately seek his economics.

    I do not hear any support of 'moral standing' from anyone who supports abortion or gay-marriage, as every such person, without exception, has abandoned such notions long ago.

    Morality is relative now, we can do what we want.

    Do you support torturing innocent people? People that could not provide the link between Saddam and 9-11 even if they wanted to?

    Provide a link that validates torturing anybody provided "actionable intelligence" that did indeed save any lives what so ever?
