    Yeah, I just find it kind of funny how every country tries to pretend like they don't do it. Every country does it. Americans are just held responsible for our actions. Slavery didn't start in the states, nor did it end in the states... The worlds a messed up place.

We torture people and have done it since our beginnings. This is our way. We are no better or any differant than any other people. We replaced, Indians, with blacks, With Gooks, With rag heads just to justify our inhumanity. Oh ya blast um all. I'm done now. BURN THE WITCH, BURN THE WITCH. We do it oh so well with good excuses for doing so.
      I'm with you on the policitians.
      And the reason they can say with a straight face that we don't torture is (at least in the opinions of their lawyers) that water boarding isn't torture. Now I know you disagree with that, and that's a fine position to have.
      But remember the friggin' world is run by lawyers who make up rules within rules and then jam 'em all down our throats.
      Meanwhile, our poor troops have to contend with rules of engagement with the enemy laid out by lawyers. Commonsense, which is a Jeeper's best friend, does not apply in this. Remember that "BLackhawk Down" is closely studied by the enemy as a tactical training film. Thank God hollywood never gets movies "right".
      It's a little like the former President swearing he never "had sex with that woman" only to discover that his definition of sex was a tightly defined lawyer thing. sigh.
      Sorry, there's probably no hope for anything anymore.

      And like Blackwater, I grew up in the Southland. Sherman's troops "practiced" in my home state before they went east and worked over Georgia. When they left, they reported that not a single thing was left alive for miles around. Tough to rebuild a life from that.

        Have you lost a relative, friend or neighbor to the terrorists or in a war? As Americans we all have. As a civilized society we condem torture but as a society trying to survive we need it. Sure it's trture but a very mild form. Throughout history there has been torture. Many that performed the actual torture were wealthy as they were paid well to extract information or just to cause pain without death.
