A poster from WWII.
Not really politically correct today in some circles.
Ahh yes comparing us to the Nazis. Be so kind as to point out the MILLIONS of murdered civilians, the millions more in concentration camps. Or the MILLIONS of dead soldiers. Germany was a mass murder machine that conducted experiments on live prisoners and civilians with out any drugs for fun and to test pet theories.
Yup we are JUST like them, at least according to you dumb ass Liberals that think scaring someone into talking without even threatening their life is a form of torture similar to Nazi German.
The poster says torture is the method of our enemies, not mass murder. But there probably was one about that too.
PolitiFact | History supports McCain's stance on waterboarding
we executed Japanese for waterboarding after WWII
Prove it. Prove we executed Japanese officers just for water boarding, then prove that their method was the same as ours and that they had competent medical people standing by to ENSURE no harm came to the prisoner.
Other wise I am tired of a story that provides no evidence.
Yeah, I'd like to see proof too.
McCain didn't say that. I've shown a couple times now with cites to sources that Japanese who were convicted for waterboarding were sentenced to 15 years hard labor.
Yet you keep making this unsubstantiated claim that they were executed for it.
In a recent journal essay, Judge Evan Wallach, a member of the U.S. Court of International Trade and an adjunct professor in the law of war, writes that the testimony from American soldiers about this form of torture was gruesome and convincing. A number of the Japanese soldiers convicted by American judges were hanged, while others received lengthy prison sentences or time in labor camps.
That is all true. But nothing I've seen shows any were hung solely for waterboarding.
Just as soon as you provide evidence water boarding as practiced by the US killed people we can have another conversation.
Your point is torture is fine as long as it does kill someone?
Not according to the US Govt in WWII.
