and whats wrong with seeing the world in Black and White......apples and oranges...Good and Evil??
Sometimes its a good thing to be "simplistic" and put things in their proper place.
Well, I would tend to strongly disagree with that. The WORLD is not black-and-white whatsoever. You yourself make decisions based on PERSONAL
experience, based on LEARNED and TAUGHT ideals. So does everyone else.
Life is not a comic book. There is no "absolute" evil any more than there is any "absolute" good. Seeing the world like that will only cause you
pain and disenfranchisement.
If a terrorist is caught too late and the FBI know he has already planted a WMD in Manhattan...I think he should be tortured in the worst way
possible to save the lives of millions....would you rather we spare him any pain and let the WMD go off?
Yeah well that's your opinion. Torture does not work.
And your "intelligence" agencies couldn't protect you from 9/11 even though they had plenty of warning, so what makes you think they'll be able to
do anything next time? IF a terrorist planted a WMD that was about to explode in NYC, do you really think the FBI would know anything about it until
after it exploded? Do you REALLY believe that there is anything that ANYONE can do to guarantee your 100% safety 24 hours a day?
If (God Forbid) a WMD does goes off in NYC...would'nt countless innocent people be "tortured" beyond belief?
Maybe. But it hasn't happened. We're not talking about torturing a person who has just planted a WMD. We are talking about torturing some
SUSPECTED terrorist in a foreign prison somewhere. There are stories ALL OVER the net about people who have been tortured by US forces (or extradited
to countries that did (see Maher Arar)). None of these people had planted a WMD that was rigged to go off. None of them.
War is Hell, the sooner you and your kind understand that...the sooner we can squash these cockroaches and move on. McCain is way outta line
and perhaps its time for him to step aside and let clearer minds take the reins
Haha, what is "my kind"? Is this another black vs white thing? Because if it is, I am clearly on the side of human compassion and clear,
level-headed thinking. What is your opposite?
I trust John McCain to comment on torture far more than I trust your views on it. Even if he IS Republican. He seems like a stand-up guy.
And yes, War IS Hell. But YOU started this war. So that kinda makes your country at least a little closer to being the Great Satan that they call
