    Good morning CJ. I believe you. It sounded that way though.

    Good morning OD - I had to go back and check - yesterday is so yesterday, you know.

    What I was questioning was TheDemSocialist's take on two issues he brought up at the same time yesterday. In the first one, he was suggesting that the US and others should take a hard line against Kuwait because they were providing arms and financial assistance to "terrorists" in the Syrian mess. In the second, he was complaining that Sarah Palin was taking a hard line against terrorists. It seemed a bit inconsistent. In fact, you could argue that if Sarah Palin was President, based on her comments in this thread, she might very well take the hard line approach against Kuwait that TheDemSocialist was promoting.

    I didn't, in fact, take any position one way or another related to waterboarding although, if I was to take a position, I wouldn't be at all opposed to it under certain circumstances. I do also find it inconsistent that many who oppose waterboarding have no problem with Obama killing suspected terrorists with drone attacks and aren't even concerned with the "collateral damage" of innocents, including children, being vaporized in the process, as simply a cost of the war on terrorism. I'd much rather see a terrorist involved in the murder of innocent people be waterboarded than to see an innocent child vaporized simply for being in he wrong place at the wrong time.

    Maybe someone should tell Palin that Obama hasn't stopped the practice then so she can stop lying.

    Do you also believe that everybody who thinks the death penalty is fine and dandy should be executed?

    I'm failing to see the link you've created.

    That's a pretty lame analogy. Let me guess, you don't think waterboarding is torture?

    I don't think though that the issue was taking a hard line against anyone. I think the issue is the issue was using waterboarding as a way to take that hard line stance. So I don't see the contradiction.

    I didn't, in fact, take any position one way or another related to waterboarding although, if I was to take a position, I wouldn't be at all opposed to it under certain circumstances. I do also find it inconsistent that many who oppose waterboarding have no problem with Obama killing suspected terrorists with drone attacks and aren't even concerned with the "collateral damage" of innocents, including children, being vaporized in the process, as simply a cost of the war on terrorism.

    I can't argue with you there. I have to confess I haven't done enough reading on the use of drones to understand the reality of the collateral damage. But based on what I do know I find it shameful.

    Nobody thinks that the death penalty doesn't result in death.

    Re: Sarah Palin: 'Waterboarding Is How We'd Baptize Terrorists' If I Were In Charge

    Funny how waterboarding became torture when GW Bush was President. The left just needed something else to vilify Bush over, so they decided it was torture. Sorry, it's not, even if it helps you politically.

    Also, notice all those smart, well thought out arguments against Palin. LOL! She's not the one that looks like an idiot from those comments.
