    Many black men were lynched in the old South on the basis of "pretty clear" evidence.

    You may find, in the end, that the Senate report was no more objective than that.

    If my nation went to war and acted like Nazis or Stalinists I would not defend that country and would not want to stay to 'enjoy' its victory.

    There is no value in war beyond victory. Your departure would likely make the US a better place. And no one has acted like Nazis or Stalinists.

    Nazis and Stalinists acted like Nazis and Stalinists. I am not claiming that the USA has acted badly at that scale or level........yet.

    Your moral approval has exactly zero value.

    You mean like the "pretty clear evidence" that the tortured people were terrorists?
    As a dreamer of dreams and a travellin' man, I have chalked up many a mile.
    Read dozens of books about heroes and crooks and I've learned much from both of their styles!

    I have suggested reticence now so you won't be embarrassed later.
