I don't live in your world of hearts and flowers.
I see bad people do bad things. I see many of them get away with it.
sadly, I have a niece who would beg to differ with you. These things DO happen. I noticed you did'nt say what you would prefer I do if such a situation were to happen to you and yours.
I see what you're saying now. It's all become so clear. I can't believe I've been so blind all this time. I thank you from the bottom of my heart. I bow to your superior intellect. If you can find it in your heart, I beg you, please forgive me for being such a foolish old man....
...I truly did think that a little water up ones nose was worth saving human lives...
Maybe the next time the US is threatened by a so called possible not nice person that wants to kill all Americans and fly planes into buildings and cut our heads off we can have the gov't refer them to you. Would that be considered torture?
Did I make you feel bad? I'm sorry again!
Water up ones nose is wrong? Ok.
Real topic? Basic training worse than torture? That depends. I found basic training to be fun. One guy killed himself because he cound'nt take it. Hung himself. US Navy Seal training? Here's the deal. If you are suggesting that instead of waterboarding a suspected terrorist we put them through US Navy Seal training then I think we have reached a fair compromise.
Deal? Shake hands and make up?

Anyone who claims that torture doesn't get to the truth, isn't doing it right!
There's a right way, and a wrong way.
Do it right, you get your info.
Do it wrong, and he's . . . well, dead.

I also imagined all this thread in an arab forum..like "from the other side" now THAT would be terrible yes?!
OP, you are the agressor, you are the murderer, you are the monster...and all that manufactured by maiking you fear a ghost that does not exist...still YOU are responsable for what you have become and you will answer to it one way or the other.
I am not religious. I just hope that whats goes a
around comes around..

Torture is a Crime against Humanity, and it does not much matter which country the torturer comes from - only that they be arrested and prosecuted.
