The supreme court made the descision, We must live by their rulings, besides were those people not actively trying to kill people? so we are worse
for getting water up their nose? after you are waterboarded you feel fine in less than a minute, when you are hit by a mortar or in an explosion
caused by an IED you never feel anything again, or are left with lifelong injuries.
Who gets to say if they were actively trying to kill people or not? And you know how Waterboarding feels do you? Did you know that Al Zarkawi or
whatever his name was went through 147 instances of Water boarding in ONE MONTH.
That's atleast 3 times a day minimum
Does that not seem wrong to you? I apologize, but getting water up your nose, and a simulated drowning are two VERY different things. And how are
people who are tortured not left with life long injuries? You dont' consider emotional scaring, PTSD or Anxiety a lifelong injury?
Your argument has no basis what so ever, the simple excuse of "Oh they are terrorists, and this behaviour we are doing MIGHT help save some people
from something we may or may not know is happening and these people may or may not be a part of " is NOT good enough, PERIOD.
Going back to the Supreme Court, we all know what good job they do eh? Remember the 2000 Elections, when George was decided as the President because
daddy's friends on the Court were told to give it to him?
That says alot about your so called "justice" system now doesn't it. Anybody can bought for any price, which is the problem today.
This war on terror has consistently been used to allow your rights to be stripped away a little more every day, and yet you think it's ok because you
feel "safer". Do you really feel safer than you did on Sept 10th? Or do you feel safer because you've been told
that the world is
There's a big difference friend. And there is a hell of a big difference between people and humans. People treat each other like animals and behave
like animals, human beings understand the concept that we are all the same regardless and deserve the same rights.
American is the one who is suppose to show an example in today's society, they sure are giving the right impression right now aren't they?
