My leaders fall flat on their faces time after time after time after time with their "greater responsibilities." My leaders consist of men and women who are prepared to do all sorts of tasteless, immoral things in order to attain power. My leaders, by and large, are walking bags of toe jam. They are not fit to shine my shoes.
I do not want that kind of person to have the authority to decide whether or not someone is tortured or executed.
Let's find out, shall we?
And yet you agree that when faced with two choices that are wrong, you take the one that causes the least harm.
Reconcile these positions.
Really.I vehemently disagree, in the strongest terms possible
Make the argument that it is better to let 1 million die than to let those 1 million survuve with blood on their hands.
Not in terms of doing terrible things so that the people in your side might live.There's a significant difference between war and torture.

But none of this matters. Torture is illegal and waterboarding was banned publicly by even President Bush. So what's the gripe anymore? Because three religious terrorists and murderers were waterboarded? Move on.

If someone invades your country, or that of an ally, you have a duty to repel that invasion. If you kill people in the process, that's what happens. It's no different than if someone breaks into my house or my neighbor's house.
The power to torture individuals is ripe and ready for abuse, and I do not want my leaders to have it.
