    Just curious, but why is waterboarding wrong, but snipers are A-ok with the left ???

    I mean the whole issue on or about torture is founded in the thinking that if we do it, then everyone else will do it right ??

    Aren't snipers and gathering Intel supposed to be a highly secretive thing ???

    Why this boasting ??

    Snipers demoralize the enemy, 'death from afar' in addition to many other things... Propaganda is a magnifier of the effect.

    If you're interested, check out Carlos Hathcock's well documented effect on the Viet Cong with his rather rudimentary bolt action 30-06. (especially the cat and mouse game he played with their preeminent sniper 'the Black Widow', a female sniper who counted coup on many of our American soldiers.
