    Wow. Had no idea that our boys were being flogged, burned, and beaten as part of their training. Or do we just "sorta" torture them?

    Obviously you've never been through any military training or been deployed to a combat theater.

    FWIW: waterboarding does not include flogging, burning or beatings so your infantile attempt at sarcasm totally misses the mark

    And a taste isn't a full course either.

    Ah....the lame old.....you haven't been through the real deal copout.

    You ever go through jump school? Tell me if being dangled from a 250' jump tower doesn't put the fear of death into you. Ever been thru OC training and had OC sprayed directly into your eyes and then been forced to complete an obstacle course before you could wash it out? Remember gas mask training where they stick you in a box and fill it with tear gas and make you sit in it?

    Any of those events would be considered "torture" by the left if we were to do it to some terrorist scumbag

    Yes, I've been there, but it isn't the same and I would not be foolish enough to argue that it is. training is not equal to what those tortured really go through anymore than the tower is equal to a real jump or jump emergency.

    Still mistakenly riding the "it's not the same" train? I didn't say it was the same. I said if we did to a detainee many of the things we do to trainees on a daily basis, many on the left would call it torture.

    But hey, if your only concern is trying to "win" a debate by repeating that they are not "the same"....knock yourself out.
