Yes, I like the candle wax myself......
But seriously, I agree that torture is a tool of strategy, and it has long been used in war. I disagreed highly with the leaks on torture, it should
not be discussed unless it is being discussed within the military. It is a tactic, if we go around letting our tactics, or rather the specifics of
those tactics, be public knowledge then WTH?
Regulation of torture methods may be a neccesity, but should be regulated within the military corps, without public approval or disapproval.
I see that I have chosen the very unpopular side of this matter, I would like to say that I am a veteran of sorts, I grew up during the veitnam war
and the turbulance of those times and now, all I wanted to be when I grew up was a tree hugger and hippie. I still think the world needs more love and
that peace is the answer, and what I truly wish for this world is just that, lots of love and peace, and understanding and tolerance of each other.
Unfortunately, that is not the reality of this world. The cold hard facts are that war has been going on since the begining of human civilization, and
it continues and will continue, no country will ever 'win' or 'lose', it is a game that will continue playing no matter what, but the amount of lives
saved by strategy, matters. There are times that torture may be the only strategy to save many lives, and yes it should be regulated as to how the
torture is applied, but, torture does not end in the loss of life, it is to gain information, so no one dies and many get saved. Now I am going to go
hug a tree.
