Incoherent & Confused Ramblings (on the Torture Issue)

By Kanrei

Torture is a popular topic these days. It could be the “Mel Gibson Effect” on society I suppose. I mean, we could have seen “Passions of the Christ” or any Mel Gibson flick for that matter, but as we sat in the theater or on our couches watching the two plus hours of nonstop torture, we could have grown accustomed to it. You never know. If porn is credited with serial killers then I can give “Passions” credit for torture.

ahahahahahhaha.....Another good one Kanrei.....

I think we should do whatever it takes to get the information we need.....All this teeth gnashing and whining about proven interogation techniques from the left AND right just makes us look even weaker in the eyes of our enemies....


I don't think giving the new 'leader' of Al Queda in Iraq a bubble bath and three square meals a day is going to get us any information on their activities.....


And blindly torturing someone without a purpose is doomed to failure...The people who know what works are the ones that do the interogations.....They shold be the ones setting up gyuidelines, and they should be givent he latitude to what is necessary to save lives and stop terrorist attacks....


P.S. Torture of the Christ was incredibly uberviolent.....Watching it once was enough

I think we agree on this one. As you can see I am all over the place on this. I think this public admitting of torture is my biggest problem

You knon, that is all that President Bush wants....For the interogators to have the latitude to do their vital work and not have to worry about being arrested for it.....
