Is it wrong or right?
Wrong cause yes it does make us look bad. And thats a shame for all the hardworking soldiers over there doing good.
Wrong because its wrong. period. no disscussion needed.
Wrong because I say so.
There are none.
But it sure would have made me feel good if I was one of those soilders doing it.
Paybacks are a bitch.
Real physical torture is wrong, however, nothing I have seen in the present situation amounts to any more than humiliation. Coercing a bad guy to talk is the part of war nobody wants to admit or talk about. I think we need to remember that a short time before they were "tortured" the prisoners were trying to blow up our soldiers and if given the chance, burn their bodies and hang them from a bridge. I think the entire situation is being blown out of proportion.
Couldn't have said it better m'self!
I'm glad everyone sees how this is wrong in so many ways. I listened to Drudge last night and apparently there are pictures and videos much worse than what we've seen: Iraqis being raped, beaten, having dogs sicked on them.
Flame me all you want but I voted right, although I don't like how the right answer was posed. Its not that I don't care about Iraqis, I don't care about insurgent Iraqis. I still say when you show me a picture of actual physical torture than I will change my tune, until then my position is psyops or psyhumiliation is a valid tool of war.
