    You're rather violent aren't you?

    It was clearly considered torture during WW2, so why the double standard now.

    But as for charging Bush, unless he personally commanded it, I don't see the point.
    They were hanged for torture, like bamboo shoots in finger nails, cutting people, beheading not water boarding. If water boarding is torture, then why do we train our troops to endure it?

    How about this, why dont we ask McCain if he would have rather been water boarded or beaten like he was. How much you want to bet he would rather water boarded where it all mental instead of physically being beaten next to death.

    Wonder why you two are so quick to condemn others for water boarding yet will not answer my question about if you child was being held weather or not if you would torture to save their life or allow them to perish just because you are scared of violating a terrorist rights.

    To save my child, I would.

    Do you believe in torturing someone on the off chance you may be able to save a stranger?

    Re: Amnesty International Wants Bush Prosecuted for Admitted Waterboarding

    So now you are saying you would torture for your family but not for your country.

    Say there was a terrorist with a nuke inside Australia and it was going to kill 5 million women and children and by the means of torture you can stop it from being detonated? You claiming you wouldnt torture then?

    Funny how when its YOUR family you would but believe anyone else family isn't worth it. How typically liberal of you.

    Yes I do. I would torture anyone if it could save a innocent life they were responsible of putting in jeopardy.

    That's not relevant, we're not talking about anything of that magnitude.

    Are you really saying the aggressors in an invasion are innocent people? And that you would have no qualms if a Taliban fighter tortured info out of a US soldier to save his family from a drone strike?

    The Taliban would torture a US soldier.
