    Don't get me confused with Boo. I don't pretend to know anything about the nature of the training exercises.

    But the absence of a "safe word" is not relevant. Do you deny that water-boarding as part of military training is consented to? I think you're being purposefully disingenuous here. There is no comparison between war-boarding a criminal and water-boarding a military trainee. You yourself have acknowledged that a candidate can always wash out.

    Phew.

    Waterboarding isn't torture, that is why we can expose our troops to it.

    even when the consent is gained under duress or is coerced?

    Example:

    Training instructor: you will submit to this "procedure" or you will be ejected from this school. if you are ejected from this school it will reflect poorly on your record and decrease your chances for promotion. Is there anyone here who does not give their consent?

    Trainees: (in unison) SIR, NO SIR!!!!!!

    It's only a misdemeanor because it's over so soon.

    Once again, you're equivocating with the word "correct." We're not talking about conscience, we're talking about law. Legally, torture is always a war crime, so it is never the "correct" course of action.
