Still, if the simulated drowning of a very bad man solely to gain information to save innocent lives is "torture," then maybe we just need a new word to describe the deeds of Mengele, the slow death of the Batton Death March, necklacing in South Africa, or the act of beheading someone and posting it on the internet.
i didn't think such retarded logic still existed?

has it ever dawned on you that perhaps the victim might supply false information?

why do i even bother posting in this forum. i never have anything important to say, rather, i'm just constantly perplexed at the levels of ignorance that appear everywhere. it's maddening.

Probably better not to bother posting then, if drive-by tantrums are all you can manage.

i just don't think anyone deserves to be tortured. Things can be said when you're just dying for the pain to go away that could be said just to alleviate whats going on rather then the truth. How can you believe anything anyone says under duress? Do the confessions made with torture hold up in court? Or are we not actually told about the torture?

The other thing is, it troubles me to think that there are people on the "right" side of the fence, who are quite ok with doing this to people. It really showcases there is nothing different between one and the other, both fueled by hatred, and self righteousness
