Should the United States resume tactics like waterboarding and sleep deprivation to extract information from the terrorists imprisoned at Guantanamo Bay?
The appropriate response must be applicable to the actions of the terrorist. I don't have much sympathy for a terrorist who has tortured people by burning them to death or decapitating someone with a butcher knife.
Different situations require appropriate
What ever happened to good ole Bamboo shoots under the finger nails set on fire?
Absolutely. They are not torture. And they are effective.
If you don't think it's torture I encourage you to try water boarding and sleep deprivation yourself! They are very easy to do at home :)
PS sleep deprivation can kill you after less than 2 weeks.
Yeah but a terrorist can kill you in less than two minutes. Why should I give a damn about torturing someone who is most likely geared up mentally to Kill Thousands of People?
I don't care if I have to use a blow torch, the SOB is going to tell me what I want to know.
I'm give an opinion on whether or not torturing potential terrorists or informants is bad. I simply argued that water boarding and sleep deprivation are indeed torture and if you don't think so then that person is more than welcome to try them out!
First line should be...
*I didn't give an opinion
I believe that the judicial system of USA should treat every alleged criminal, regardless whether they have domestic or foreign citizenship the same way. If it is not okay to waterboard John from Texas right after he is arrested to get more information about criminals then it is also not okay to do the same to Mohammand from Syria.
I don't think anyone there has much knowledge of terrorist activity that is still current enough to be useful anymore. So unless some new inmates arrive there probably isn't much need. We should keep it on the table though.
Absolutely not. Seems like a direct contradiction of American exceptionalism.
No. Close the facility.
No to waterboarding. Yes to sleep deprivation.
There is no rational justification to participate in such practices.
We should water board them from time-to-time just because their beards get all nasty.
If you are talking about using those methods on the existing residents of Gitmo, no. They've been there too long.
If Trump starts capturing new ones and sending them there, sleep deprivation is not torture.
Terrorists are not Americans!
I ran into a group of Korean tourists yesterday. Could I have tortured them because they are not American?
If Dylann Roof knew of another mass shooting being planned, should we torture him?
If they committed an act of terrorism the FBI could have
Hey WorstGoo, we are talking about terrorists and you know it. We are not talking about some random tourists on the street. Your comment is dishonest.
No. Water boarding violates the eight amendment.
The Constitution does not apply to foreign terrorists.
The Geneva Convention does.
You're right, we should just make it one giant safe space. Let's send those poor, defenseless terrorists therapy puppies and hot cocoa. While we're at it, let's send a box of chocolates and a fruit basket to the Boston Bomber's death row cell, because people that blow the limbs off 8-year-old boys with pressure cooker bombs need love too, right?
Congrats on creating one of the most absurd strawmen I've ever seen.
I could be wrong, but I don't think being a terrorist has anything to do with whether you have certain protections under the constitution.
They aren't U.S. Citizens. Hence the word "foreign".
No. I don't condone torture.
I think we should resume it and up the ante on it. Waterboard them, deprive them of sleep by playing Miley Cyrus and Justin Beiber songs 24/7, and only feed them bacon.
