    I think if the Iran Military started waterboarding American civilians, the right would be screaming for blood. You bet your ass it would be wrong then.

    That begs to question, What would the left be doing?

    Apparently Petraeus is smart enough to see through the bull**** obfuscation that was the "legal argument" the Bush administration used to justify torturing our captives.

    I'm not justifying anything. I'm asking you a simple god-damned question, one which you seem pathologically incapable of answering. Let's try again...

    How can one violate the Geneva Conventions when the Geneva Conventions don't apply to the people in question?

    Would you feel that way if they were torturing our people? Or are you being all puffed up because we are the assholes.

    The left thinks it is wrong when we are doing it to them. Many of the right seem to think it is just fine to torture. So the question stands as is.

    Nazis? LOL.

    How would you feel if our troops and generals started speaking out against Obama's administration? Would that be just, or would that be wrong?

    IMO, it's not the military's place to make or interpret policy. The military works for the civilian leadership and carries out all lawful orders they are given. They are not the 4th branch of government
