Another Testimonial Against Waterboarding

Funny how you never hear women puffing up and saying waterboarding ain't no big deal.
Well, maybe lunatics like Michelle Bachmann, Ann Coulter or Michelle Malkin might have said that, but fortunately I try never to be exposed to their ridiculous opinions unless Keith Olbermann or someone warns me in advance what I'm about to hear.
But the Fox News types and other he-men like Rush Limbaugh, Big Dick Cheney and Condi Rice seem to think it's just not that big a deal.
This macho writer from Playboy swaggered in to try it, and even bragged that he'd made a bet he could last for at least 15 seconds. He lost the bet.

Okay, let's just cut the shit, shall we?
We know it's torture and we know torturing is a crime.
We know Bush, Dick, Condi, Rumsfeld, Feith, Bybee, Gonzalez and the rest of those sadistic animals okayed it, so let's either indict them or insist they be waterboarded on network TV until the desired results are obtained: confessions that they authorized torture, because they'll admit that waterboarding is torture.

I'm sick of all this pussyfooting around. I'm sick of reading and writing about it. Let's bring these creeps to justice and restore America's moral compass. NOW.

Words well spoken on the anniversary of "Mission Accomplished". My faith in justice will be restored when Shrub & cohorts are behind bars.

I wonder if they could just call off the whole Hannity waterboarding for charity thing and just jump to an old school beheading instead? Think of the donations...

why is it that playboy had to do this story? where are the major news networks?

did you hear elisabeth hasselbitch's excuse for sean insanity? he raises so much money for charity already that he doesn't have to get waterboarded. oh, she also said that olbermann was not part of the original conversation, so why did he butt in. of course, she didn't explain how she got invited into the conversation.

but i digress. that video was scary as hell. he lasted 7 seconds from the time the water started being poured, and that's with knowing he was perfectly safe.

Waterboarding is torture. There's no ifs, ands or buts about it. There's no argument except in the heads of imbeciles. It has been considered torture since antiquity, and used as such (ex. the Inquisitions). Period. End of fucking discussion. I really don't give a damn if the talking heads on Faux News don't have the intellectual capacity to figure that out or are so ignorant of history that they don't know.

And Hannity needs to put up or shut up. If they're going to say it isn't torture, then they need to undergo it. But I don't see any of them clamoring to do so. I wonder why?

Someone needs to prosecute, and if we won't hold our own accountable, then the EU or some other world court needs to.

Indeed, they aren't even taking up the ones that offered to be waterboarded (Hannity).

I agree: ENOUGH ALREADY. They broke the fucking law, they're all guilty of war crimes!! Try 'em, hang 'em.

I was wondering about this, too -- why aren't the major networks doing a simple story like this?

HelenWheels said...

Simple! The corporate-owned mainstream media are paid to cover 1. Swine flu; and 2. American Idol. Those are REALLY the only 2 issues Americans have been told to be concerned about.

Okay, let's just cut the shit, sha You got that right Karen. I am so tired of the wishy washy horseshit about this issue.

It ain't rocket science..its fucking torture.
