    Oh please! Do you really hate our heritage that much that you would use this completely out of context?

    The soldiers of the Imperial Empire of Japan that were executed for waterboarding also had at least 15 other counts of torture, all more harsh that waterboarding! Try starvation, beatings, electrical shock, sleeping in human feces are JUST SOME OF THE CHARGES that got them in front of a firing squad.

    All I can say is god help us all if we as a nation are ever involved in another war such as WWI or WWII.

    I would love for somebody to tell me from the sociology end of it how we have morphed into a country of WEENIES!

    I stand by my earlier statement. I want the government / professionals whose feet are on the ground in the thick of it to do what is necessary to keep me and my family safe... period.

    What we do not need is a bunch of pansy politicians playing politics with our national security and putting our soldiers in the position where they begin to second guess their actions on the field. That is how people get killed.
