It doesn't happen every day, but. . .

On this issue, George Bush is wrong as two fat boys in a phone booth.

The argument is that "If you want Geneva protections, you need to play by Geneva rules", which I think it's safe to say that Hezbullah, al Quaida and others do not. So I think you need to make a little more effort to explain why you think he's wrong.

President Bush is wrong on a lot of things. I'm not so sure this is one? Explain please.

There's a laundry list of reasons that the Geneva Conventions are more wishful thinking than practical.

And 'the high moral ground' is little justification, I think.

"Two fat boys in a phone booth?"

I take that personally.


But as to the main point of your post: who will do away with John McCain? He's almost a RINO, and the only blessed 'Pub by the MSM. I wish he and all the other pretenders to power would just retire from public life, and let the Prez run the war.

Ponsdorf- People who are being smacked around, or beaten DO NOT give reliable intelligence. They tell you whatever gets you to stop hurting them.

That, and I dont want other Soldiers being asked to do things I won't do.

In ref to torture: Torture is historically a very unreliable means of interogation. Just look at all the nonsense the Iquisition generated.

Furthermore, it is a coorosive on the soul of the person that does it. There is, I am assured by reliable sources, a huge difference between aiming center mass and pulling the trigger in the heat of battle and getting face to face with a person over an extended period of time and carefully planning their abject agony.

Short answer: I don't want the federal government to start making a habit of encouraging sociopathy in its members.

The fact that it violates the Constitution should be reason enough to not do this.

I agree with John.
