Dems say US uses same tactics as enemy. Did someone get 0bama a honing stone?

Or do Dems think Bush had one that he passed on to Barry Hussein?

    There is something to be said for how we treat our prisoners. I'm not saying they should be coddled or have the same rights normal citizens do. This treatment is a reason many of the nuclear scientists from Germany came to the US at the end of WWII. They knew how the Soviets would treat them. We will never win the long-term war, not speaking of the tactical battle, if we don't hold ourselves to a higher moral standard than our enemy.

    When people start waking up and realizing they are nothing but a mere commodity in the quest for absolute power--maybe they will stand up for themselves. OR...

    They can still bash Bush and defend Obama blindly while their freedoms disappear. Looks like this is the route most have taken. Say goodbye to your freedoms--your fellow citizens have SO MUCH HATE that they are willing to sacrifice you, themselves and their children all to demonstrate their extreme hate for one man. That's called denial, indifference and extreme selfishness.

    I didn't agree with all that Bush did--but you cannot defend the same actions of another party simply because of the name of THE PARTY. Right is right and wrong is wrong. If those variables change for you based on how much you hate someone--then you never had the value to begin with. FACT.

    We need to use tactics more effective than the enemy. If we cut their heads off....we wont get any information out of them. Water boarding worked...it scared the big babies. Those terrorists attack in secret because they couldnt win a fight face to face. They are like dogs...they fight in packs. Pour a little water in their face and they are squeeling like a little girl. Obama is an amateur trying to play with the big boys and hes flunking out.

    Waterboarding is torture. And you seem to be one another genius who forgot that Nick Berg's head being cut off was a direct retaliation for Abu Gharib.

    None of that crap was going on until WE instigated it.
