Yes it's sad that prisoners have been abused but would they rather we cut their heads off with a knife?

Two wrongs is not making a right.

Even the BFG knew THAT.

Behold, the logic of RR: the only things you can do to prisoners are abuse them or decapitate them (which could also constitute abuse, depending on how you feel about that whole getting-killed thing). Because treating them according to our own rules of engagement is just out of the question.

Nothing wrong with this quote. I agree.

Societies fall (as opposed to being conquered) from the inside when its fundamental values are subverted.

The principal development since the enlightenment has been the value of the individual (consider burgeoning rights, and freedoms from authoritarian interference).

Mistreatment, abuse, and torture have been outside the norms of western society for at least 6o years, this being the culmination of a cycle of liberalisation. This should define who we are.

When we resile from this stance we start to lose ourselves

So...we should be proud that we just torture and dehumanize them...that we at least keep them alive? When become a monster to fight a monster, it still doesn't make it right.

Or you could do what Jesus said and FORGIVE.

@Meh: Nothing wrong? So you wouldn't mind if Islamic terrorists only had two options with dealing with American prisoners: torture or beheading? When you descend to the same inhuman tactics of your enemy, you become no better than them.

cuz that's what Jesus would've done...

Here's the thing,......

Because you want to abuse them, Then cut their heads off. After they've suffered in just the way YOU THINK your God wants them to

Here's an idea: we shouldn't do anything to prisoners that we wouldn't want done to our soldiers who are taken prisoner.

You know... do unto others as you would have them do unto you?

But whatever lib-burr-ull said that gets absolutely zero attention at Rapture Ready, right?
