    Conservatives have enjoyed spending my tax money on **** yet complain when it's "socialists". Lulz.

    Yeah eventually I do think the Chinese will get tired of supporting our international hegemony.

    No, you're right -- piracy has always been considered worse.

    Edit: I changed from support to quiet laughter btw.
    That's so much better.

    You don't seem to get it, Conservatives don't care how you spend your money, so have at it, throw it all at social programs that never solve a social problem then when the money runs out you get what is happening there now.

    It did?

    Piracy has always been considered worse than torture by the moral and legal traditions of the vast majority of the world, so it's hardly just "me."

    Armed robbery is not worse than torture. But whatever, it is your opinion

    I think we can agree it was a very happy ending.

    No?
    NO!!! I don't believe torture works, regardless I don't want our nation to seen as doing the same thing as terrorists do. There are ways to get information in a humane way. At the end of WWII the Germans didn't resist be captured because the knew they would be treated humanely by the Americans. The policy saved the lives of our troops. Torture is bad policy and I am surprised Bush did recognize that.

    Oh please, don't make me laugh. Theory is very different to reality.

    UK Conservatives don't give two ****s about anyone but themselves and spend the rest of the time bitching about Government yet the second private sectors get a hit. Who do they turn to? The Government to bail them out with their tail tucked firmly between their legs

    We are getting off topic anyway.
