    Okay, and I know what that feels like. I can see how that would be pretty unbearable. Would that not make you question it's efficiency and the information gathered because of it?

    No, there is psychological torture as well, that is torture that causes lasting damage to mental health, but waterboarding does not do this.

    First let me ask you something....have you ever done something which scared the hell out of you? Skydive, rollercoaster, fast driving, etc?

    Not really. I'm not much of a thrill-seeker, though.

    So, you've never done anything that scared the hell out of you but caused you no real harm?

    Oh come on. Waterboarding is more than just psychological. It's physical too. It may not cause harm, but feeling like you are drowning is very physical.

    It's so absurd to compare waterboarding to skydiving. It's more comparable to rape. Repeatedly being made to feel as if you were drowning would clearly have long lasting psychological effects on a normal human being. My brother was very cruel and used to hold my head underwater, it was horrifying and I believe to this day it has an impact on my personality.

    You just don't want to admit that you believe the ends justify the means. Paint it any way you want, but you're being dishonest. Skydiving? Seriously? That's pretty weak IMHO

    No, actually this comparison is what is absurd.

    My answer to your question is pointless because I know exactly where you are going with it.
