Waterboarding isn't torture? Try it - CNN.com

Three GOP presidential candidates say waterboarding is not a form of torture
So which is it: Illicit torture or an acceptable interrogation practice? asks Loran Nordgren
Nordgren: People who don't experience something can't estimate just how painful it is
People who volunteer to experience waterboarding see it as torture, Nordgren says

When it comes to these violent muslims, if torture(water boarding and etc) is necessary then I have no problem with it. I think it sends a message to our enemies.
The violent Muslims don't show any remorse or regret why should we?

I've never experienced a wedgy. Did any candidates say that? Does CNN want someone to try it? Sodium Pentathol is the way to go anyway. Or is giving drugs to people who don't want it also torture? Yep. Apparently so (according to international law). Maybe shoving daisies up their arse will extract something? Would it be the truth or would it just stink? Just sayin'.

Maybe if we had served Sheikh Mohammed a beautiful chelo kabob and some of gramdma's best goat milk, he would have been more than willing to spill the beans.

You don't mind then if captured US troops are waterboarded by the Iraqi's, Afghan's etc. If the US can do it, why can't they?

Islamicists just cut off people's heads while they are still alive. Do you really want to compare simulated drowning with having your neck severed with a dull knife?

Good point, on a side note, are you trying to deflect from the OP??

I am quite sure that America's ****numerous****haters/terrosrists aren't having any philosophic debate on what is torture ,or what isn't .
