I do not care what “liberals” think.
Even if they were against waterboarding for all the wrong reasons it could still be dead wrong.[/quote]
Could be wrong? Are you actually leaving a crack in the door for someone to say it “could be right”?
It hasn’t so far. This war was fought too nicely. Bush was trying to be compassionate when he should have been using extreme prejudice. We would have been out of Iraq within 2 years.
[quote]Plus, if you really want to know what effect torturing has on the “enemy” watch one of the videos of a beheading of one of the Western hostages.
Seriously, afterwards you know why torture and things like Abu Ghareib hurt the US.
Because Arabs have the same gut reaction, multiplied by three. [/quote]
You think that the beheading was a retaliation for abu Grahib? Dude - that is just who we are fighting. “A day in the life”, if you will.
But if they want tit for tat, why not give it to them?
To me, it is about Bush being ashamed of the power of the US. You know as well as I do that the US could end the fighting within days by completely obliterating the country, and its neighbors.
The whole world knows this. Yet we seem to fight apologetically.
