    This is what we've become.
    All of us.
    Complicit in war crimes for which we convicted the Japanese.

    When the next mass attack happens here, let's not forget we deserved it. Not the people who get killed, but us, the country,

    The only way we lose the "war on terror" is by sacrificing the things that have made this country special. No amount of terrorism can conquer our country unless we are complicit with the surrender of our identity and freedoms.

    The people who so readily sacrifice our values in the name of security are more dangerous than any current foreign threat.

    Also, torture does not work.

    I thought this thread was called The United States of Torre. Because that's how the bi-coastal headlines lately have made it feel.

    Consider the source, Fenian. This guy was a JAG -- Judge Advocate General. So he's yet another activist judge. Just more lie-bral propaganda!

    For a culture that celebrates blowing up women and children, hijacking civilian airplanes, blowing up schools, shelling market places and beheading hostages, do they even consider water-boarding torture? Isn't that just a fraternity prank at the mosque?

    It is about who we are not about who they are. Justifying immorality in our actions by the standards set by our enemies is a bad way to go.

    We stoop to their level, we've lost.
  11. And if we don't stoop to their level, we've lost.

    So I guess we're screwed either way.

    I guess I missed the latest suicide bombing carried out by our military...
