[QUOTE]To express joy at the possible arrest of our President overseas, by radical Marxist dirtbags, based on lying scum terrorists who were trained to falsely claim torture, makes me ill. And you wonder why Leftists are accused of not being patriotic. You moonbats are a disgrace, with your phony outrage at those who risked their lives for our country. The interrogation methods on these terrorists were reviewed ad nauseum by lawyers, there was consultation with Congress. Torture involves intentional infliction of severe pain and permanent scars and injuries. This was not torture. Tiger Express: " Coercive interrogation methods save lives. Stress positions, altering room temperatures, sleep deprivation, and playing loud music are not torture. As for waterboarding, the United States has never killed anybody using this method. It was only been used on three people, one of them being 9/11 mastermind Khalid Sheik Mohammed. This broke him, and led to the disruption of major mass terror plots. Lives were saved. The occurrences such as Abu Gharaib were less serious than what kids suffer at various Summer camps, and college students suffer at fraternities. Our soldiers gave the prisoners the equivalent of “wet willies” or “zerberts.” Nevertheless, we conducted an investigation, and the people responsible were punished. We also apologized. I am still waiting for the murderers of Daniel Pearl to apologize. We are nothing like our enemies. We are not even close. We do not torture. We do use coercive interrogation methods."

Right, I know. Cheney told you that waterboarding isn't torture, and Gonzalez drafted a memo as commanded. You believed it.
Been through this a million times. You don't have to listen to terrorists' descriptions of waterboarding. There are accounts from victims regarding just about every permutation of the practice. I've posted them many times here. They're all awful.
Torturing because you are afraid? You disgust me.
Only a subhuman coward would advocate that; sounds like you are afraid that the "leftists" you hate so much outman you.
(You also didn't exactly follow the thread, which was aimed at brat's desire to rip fingernails out, and do anything else, for revenge.... )
