    You betray the weakness of your position by not addressing my points on their merits. Good day.
    They have no merits, Guy Incognito, otherwise I'd be pleased to discuss them. When you advocate ceding national sovereignty to a foreign power any rational argument you might have just naturally runs out of steam.

    That is your opinion but doesn't answer the question, what did GW Bush do to hurt you or your family?

    What does that have to with whether or not Bush is responsible for torture?

    I support this and basically feel that these activities constitute a war crime.
    A war crime??? The prisoner only "Gets the feeling of being drowned" and a physician standing by just in case he needs medical attention.
    Give me a freagging break. What do you want them to do???... take the prisoner out to the most exclusive restaurant and serve him some steak and lobster and champagne to drink and interrogate him this way???
    Catch me if you can.

    There is selective outrage here on the part of those that hate President Bush so the question is quite relevant. Why isn't this an issue with any other President, LBJ, Nixon, Carter, Reagan, Clinton, or Obama? Obama is launching drone attacks on targets in Pakistan that is killing civilians. There is no evidence that Waterboarding was illegal until Obama signed the executive order in 2009. If it was illegal why the executive order?

    The hatred for GW Bush by kids who simply buy what they are told is quite telling. Guy doesn't really have a clue what went on but because he was told this was torture he vents his outrage which to me indicates a deeper problem with Guy, one of hatred and the question is why? Three members of al Qaeda were waterboarded on the orders of GW Bush, THREE!! I would have waterboarded everyone captured as these animals aren't guaranteed protection under international law let alone American law.

    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.
    Why do you train troops to endure torture.. seriously?

    We do train troops to endure torture.. there is a specific school it's done in. I know some vets who are very familiar with it and told me about it.

    And if my child was being held, I wouldn't torture. That is so stupid. Why antagonize the enemy? We don't torture in hostage situations. OMG! That is a ridiculous.. we negotiate

    Nothing, of course. That was the point of asking the question.
