  •  Why DO We Torture? (4+ / 0-)

    Torture doesn't work, it's against the law and international treaties, it's domestically politically risky, it alienates our allies, it helps terrorist recruitment, it undermines our prosecution of terror cases, it wastes our time, it's immoral.

    So why do we do it?

    Is rightwing America so bloodthirsty that we need to literally throw them bloody red meat, despite it being wrong in every way?

    And why are they still so important that feeding their bloodlust is still more important than everything else?

    Or maybe we really are just evil.

      Is rightwing America so bloodthirsty that we need to literally throw them bloody red meat, despite it being wrong in every way? YES

      And why are they still so important that feeding their bloodlust is still more important than everything else?  Some people are just slow on the uptake see 19% who still support Shrub

      Or maybe we really are just evil. No

      it's intimidating Americans to make them think to themselves, "boy, I'd better behave" and "there, but for the grace of God, go I."

      All of this stuff is a distraction to keep the American people from noticing what's being done in their name.

      How do you tell a predator from a protector? The predator will eat you sooner rather than later.
