I agree. Torture has no place, but I think a sense of perspective needs to be established. In the Middle East and amongst the Muslim radicals, torture means ripping under someone's toe & fingernails while chained to an immovable object. It means carving up a face, the eyeballs, tongue, etc. It means tying down a young Christian girl and gang raping her and then returning her mutilated body to the neighborhood of her parents.

I could go on in this vein, but I think anyone who uses there cerebral faculties at all, knows what I'm talking about. Most people don't want to face the reality of what we are dealing with in the Muslim terrorist's world. We will suffer accordingly. When it's your daughter, mother, sister, son, father, etc. then it will to late to truthfully address what we are talking about.

My own local rag here in the U.S. started wailing about "torture" at Gitmo & could only come up with the fact that some guard had hit one of the prisoners. Oh, my. That's called baiting a guard to give some clueless Liberal journalist more fodder to promote his ignorant agenda and buy popularity. It is accomplished by throwing one's urine or feces into the face of a passing guard.

So, then, if we can gain some focal point here on what we're talking about when we mention "torture", perhaps we can talk some sense. Waterboarding is done against some insane animal that has lost all human attributes and presents a vast danger to those who still maintain some humanity. I don't think I would have the stomach for it, but if someone else wants to take a senseless animal that wantonly tortures, slaughter, rapes, and bombs innocent human civilians, then I say more power to them. I can talk to those who "hate", but an animal has lost its identity as one who belongs to the human race. He is a beast. No, actually this is libeling true animals who kill for food. "demon" more aptly describes what Muslim radicals have become.

And let's call a horse by its name. We are talking about Muslim terrorists, not humans who engage in "fisticuffs" or common terrorists. The word terrorist nowadays is hugely populated by the Muslims. There may be some isolated others, but by and large, we are talking about Islam - let's quit dancing around the word like we were some Liberal newspaper (I use the word "newspaper" loosely).
