I have to say I don't typically look at graphic pics but I stumbled across this one yesterday. It is graphic in that there are dead people, but it is not gory with body parts. You can't tell from the pic who is alive or dead. I think it is worth a look, fwiw.

Quoting Kate_Momof3:

I'm not going to look at a graphic picture that exploits tragedy and loss to bolster an argument that has been proven time and again to be flawed beyond repair.

Yuck.

There are times when these type of deadly attacks can be prevented.  Not saying that this one could have been stopped one way or another.  But my point is....water up the nose goes a long way in preventing future attacks.

Quoting annas_momma:

And what does any of those pictures have to do with water boarding?


Yes, the picture is very sad but there is no connection at all

The dead toddler is heartbreaking.

How far you go in life depends on your being: tender with the young, compassionate with the aged, sympathetic with the striving and tolerant of both the weak and strong.  Because someday in life you would have been one or all of these.  GeorgeWashingtonCarver

Torture is wrong and should never happen.  It makes us no better than the enemy.  Foucault (philosopher) wrote a book called, Discipline and Punish.  He talks about Damien's theory and how torturing people does not work.  He uses a lot of evidence to back up his point.  I am appalled by mothers advocating torture.

True... in actuality, it makes the enemy more likely to attack.

What odds are you willing to accept of your children being tortured by their own government?

A 1 in 100 chance, that at some point during their lifetime CIA men in mirrorshades will drag them into a small clinical white room, and put them through hell for several days, leaving with permanent PTSD?

A 1 in 1000 chance?

A 1 in 10,000 chance?


Don't tell me that if your children are innocent then it won't happen to them.  That's bull.   There are always miscarriages of justice.

Torture under any circumstance should be unacceptable.

I chose to see him/her as unconscious (did I spell that right?). You can't tell who is injured and who is lost, so that one is merely sleeping.
