    They always cheer when a Conservative dies or gets seriously injured.
    I would not, nor have I ever. Try again.


    Your premise is a joke.

    What did I dodge?

    You can't show waterboarding causes permanent injury because it doesn't

    I would not, nor have I ever. Try again.
    Sure you would. The Left would applaud Limbaugh getting waterboarded. It's beyond refute.

    As are your debating skills.
    Oh you're hurting my feelings

    You can't even prove that torture needs to cause permanent injury to be considered torture. Try again, this time with a little less fail.



    Sure you would.
    No, I would not. I know more about myself than you do.

    Oh you're hurting my feelings
    Good.

    Waterboarding is not torture. There were physicians on scene making sure there was no immediate health risk

    No, I would not. I know more about myself than you do.
    I have no doubt you would pay to watch Limbaugh waterboarded. The Left cheers and laughs whenever a Conservative dies or gets seriously injured.

    Good.
    You're happy you're causing me psychological harm man. I thought you knew yourself better than I do?

    Re: Nonpartisan review concludes Bush knowingly ordered torture

    Just to be clear, what is the criminal act that a President would have committed by ordering such "enhanced interrogation tactics" as approved by President Bush?

    It's my understanding that Bush was advised by several legal sources that the terrorist detainees rounded up in Afghanistan, Pakistan, and Iraq, are not covered by the Geneva conventions and thus were not subject, legally, to the restrictions therein. Therefore, there is a counter-argument to anyone who claims "war crimes" and besides, the US is not a participating member of the world court.

    I do find the left's outrage here particularly galling and hypocritical since these same people champion Obama's murder of bin Laden using the fruits of these enhanced interegation tactics as well as being big time supporters of Obama's use of drones to kill suspected terrorists, even in countries where the US is not at war, and with no concern for the unlimited number of innocent victims caught up in the blast, basically just an unfortunate loss of faceless life with no moral qualms

    Physical health risks. As the old saying goes, the worst scars are the ones you don't see.

    Seriously, mental health. Look it up. If you honestly are going to tell me that waterboarding doesn't cause any pain, than you should just log off, go sit down and think this over.

    I have no love for Rush, but I also have no hate. He is simply another human to me.

    You're happy you're causing me psychological harm man. I thought you knew yourself better than I do?
    Your second sentence doesn't make a damn bit of sense. How is that comparable?

    Laughable

    You can't prove that waterboarding causes permanent physical damage. You're reduced to having everyone try to feel empathy for a terrorists mental health. it's embarrassing.

    Yea ok sure

    Anyways, feel free to continue to pad your post count while I laugh at you

    No I am not feeling for empathy. I've already posted that the definition of torture which clearly states MENTAL HEALTH is included.


    As soon as you stop skirting around that we can move on.


    Yea ok sure
    Glad you finally admitted it.

    It must look weird to people walking past just to see you staring at a computer screen while laughing at seemingly nothing. Might want to stop before people get worried.

    I think waterboarding the top 3 terrorists in custody immediately following 911 constitutes a 'ticking time bomb' scenario. They were not 'tortured' for confessions but for verifiable information.
