There is not one picture of torture here you blatant troller.
You can sit in peace, behind a computer screen, and make your crystal clear determinations and certain judgments over those who live in a constant state of chaos and uncertainty

To those who say this is justified because they have killed innocent people...do you think WE have not done this?
Just days ago we killed over 100 civilians....including CHILDREN.
This IS torture....if you don't want to believe it then you are in freaking denial.
There are many other ways to extract information...torture is not necessary. The whole thing if ridiculous.
THE WHOLE WAR IS RIDICULOUS.
Our troops are tired of being there...the people in the other side of the world are tired of us being there...and most of all....WE DON"T HAVE THE MONEY TO DO IT!!!
This country is supposed to be the "shining light" of the world. We are supposed to stand for LIBERTY and FREEDOM.
Sickening, but yet sad to see stupidity of those who defend a Symptom of an UNJUST WAR that was brought about by our own government's intrusive foreign policies on other countries since WWII.

Those uniformed prisoners I took, I was responsible for, and they were accorded every military courtesy. I actually had a lot of respect for them, as they were some kind of tough.
Non-uniformed "prisoners" have no rights under international law whatsoever, I had no use for them, I hated their damned guts for being the cowards they were, and I certainly did differentiate.
So I'm a bad person.
Thing is, I really don't care what you think of me, or others who "roughed up" non-uniformed combatants.

I said I'd never give up my weapons many times, because the law of the land says I have every right to keep them, and that no one has a right to take them. I mean every word, and apologize to no one.
Call me a liar if you want, but you develop a very good sense of guilt and innocence when it comes to young men of fighting age, caught in very compromising positions, especially when you find their concealed weapons.
Boom! You feel the heat and the hot wind on the side of your face as the concussion pounds deep in your chest as you're almost knocked off your feet. The third time this month. One brother soldier gets shredded, others are wounded and moaning, and though you normally never see anyone nearby, THIS time you see rapid movement in the structure immediately to your right front.

My hats off to you.
