Because freedom can't protect itself
It's refreshing to at least know SOMEONE says something straightforward and NEARLY acceptable to the censors-that-be who are also known as the powers-that-be. What a nice thing to read with July 4th approaching. As our country becomes aware of torture techniques effects, we should be to the point where we don't tolerate them anymore. I hope we're near the end of this horrible era of proving ourselves in this crazy way. Let's celebrate the 4th with the end of torture as an expression of our concern for our country. I'm ALSO concerned--for those innocent people who have been hurt and scarred by these actions. Happy Birthday America!!
Quick question: If this had been a "Declared War" such as WWI & WWII, what happens to "combatants" who don't wear a uniform? Last time I checked, they got executed as "spies".
Gee, after reading the bitch slapping you got today on the 2A thread, I decided to peruse.
Yes, you [insert insult here] really care about anyone who is against this country more than this country itself.
Rot in Hell Parhat.
Don't confuse torture with third degree
methods of interogation. Real torture is
never acceptable and third degree would
not be in a normal war. But we are not in a normal war. This is a dirty back
alley conflict with vicious, murdering
terrorists. When we capture one of these Islamic scum we should get whatever intelligence we can out of them and then they should be summarily executed.
