Ok...this is in response to the tremendous Channel 4 (UK TV channel) called Torture. It showed in as much detail as possible what methods our
Governments are undertaking to apprehend, incarcerate and illicit confessions from 'Terrorists'; it also subjected 8 volunteers to 48 hours of a
'mild' form of the methods undertaken in Abu Gharib and Guantanamo.
I doubt that it will be shown in the USA.....
This has got to be said: How much torture could YOU withstand before you would admit that you belong to al-Qaeda?
...that you know of plans to bomb and destroy strategic targets to create as much fear in the indigenous population and the 'Western' world as a
...that you were involved in plots to kidnap, maim, torture, rape, kill, carry information, weapons, be used as a suicide bomber, be a tool of Islam
against the Infidel West....anything the Moslem Brotherhood want...
....how much would it take?
I absolutely hate and abhor the use of terrorism to achieve a socio-political change. The spread of fear and terror that this instils in a population
just breeds more resentment against the terrorist and undermines their objective. It creates a situation where ignorance and prejudice becomes
acceptable and in fact, desired by many....but when a Military Complex subjects people to the range of methods that are available to them in order to
extort confessions of guilt, terrorised becomes terrorist...
From the Dark Ages until the 18th Century(?), 10's of 1000's of innocent people were imprisoned without trial and many put to death after being
subjected to the most horrendous crude, brutal and violent forms of torture...for being 'Witches'....most confessed. But how many of them were
actual real-life witches???
Now we have 'clean', precise, bio, neuro, physio targeted torture. What's the difference? It is still designed to elicit a confession of guilt,
regardless of innocence.
How much physical, mental even spiritual abuse does it take to 'create' a terrorist?
Far better informed people out there may flame me about this topic or possibly ignore it completely...but the question has got to be asked and
What could you take?
....if this subject has already been covered...I apologise in advance...
