Since the Geneva Convention

means nothing to Al Quaida and certain tactics employed by our country to obtain info which DID sucessfully STOP more attacks following 911, aren't Libs silly to love terrorists so much? Is it really smart to love them more than they love themselves?
Who really cares about the Geneva Convention if we're the only one's who honor it besides Switzerland?

  • Cause if WE don't honor it then it's no holds bar and who knows what will happen if THAT happens.

  • If we are a nation of laws then we must follow them, even when it is inconveinant to do so.
    General Patreaus and John McCain BOTH agree, it is illegal and wrong to torture and that they broke the law by doing so. No one has sympathy for the actual terrorists that were tortured...But it damages US when we act as they do.

    Also, there were people tortured that were innocent. There is NO evidnce that torture arnered ANY information that was usable. The man that was waterboarded over 100 times, gave up all his info BEFORE the torture began. The Senate Arms Committee has investigated, you should read it. ALSO the MILITARY said torture does NOT work, but they were ORDERED to use it anyway....

  • And if any nation, tongue, or people should proclaim war against them, they should first lift a standard of peace unto that people, nation, or tongue; And if that people did not accept the offering of peace, neither the second nor the third time, they should bring these testimonies before the Lord; Then I, the Lord, would give unto them a commandment, and justify them in going out to battle against that nation, tongue, or people. And I, the Lord, would fight their battles, and their children’s battles, and their children’s children’s, until they had avenged themselves on all their enemies, to the third and fourth generation.
