    Oh, so torture is ok if we're really upset.
    You know this is basically how the enemy justifies torturing Americans, right?

    The irony of that argument, is that it was Stalin, that wanted the hold war crimes trials. Roosevelt and Churchill wanted to just execute everyone and move on.

    The war crimes trials after WW2 were for nothing but show. I doubt that anyone ever intended for them to be used a actual legal precedence.

    Yup. It's like when Bush first got into office and all we heard was "Clinton, Clinton, Clinton, Clinton, Clinton, Clinton, Clinton, Clinton". Same ****, different party.

    Well, when you got a rapist for a president, it's to be expected.

    Please do not add words to my post. I did not state, nor imply, that torture is OK for any reason.

    Then why pull the emotional string in invoking 9/11? What purpose did that serve?

    Re: Amnesty International Wants Bush Prosecuted for Admitted Waterboarding

    If it's torture, why isn't Obama making damn sure we aren't torturing our own guys. Wouldn't that be more of a crime than torturing the enemy?




    Obama Bans Waterboarding Terrorists, But Pentagon Won't Say If It Still Waterboards Military Trainees | CNSnews.com

    President Obama has banned the use of the interrogation techniques described in the memos. The White House did not respond to inquiries Monday and Tuesday on whether the president would ban the use of waterboarding during military training as well.

    Emotional string? The psychological damage done to any human being deserves to be recognized; the psychological damage done to a terrorist who has been waterboarded is no less or no more worthy of reflection than the same pd done on 9/11.

    A human being is a human being.

And these are the people whom you guys want to protect over your fellow countrymen. Talk about hanging your head in shame.
    Thank you for your service, but I respectfully disagree. As Jesus said, "What you do to the least of mine, you do to me."
