And we are still better despite waterbaording, sleep deprivation, loud music, cold temperatures, putting women's underwear on their heads, and making them be naked. Those are not horrible things especially when you compare them to what the Nazis, imperial Japan, ethnic cleansing, or terrorists did.One guy,
The right wing media haters have been out in full affect. Limbaugh saying he wants Obama to fail. I remember when people spoke out against Bush he called them treasonous and said they had Bush Derangement Syndome.
I wasn't comparing us to the Nazi's. I was making a point that in the past when waterboarding and other "harsh" techniques have been used that people have held them accountable. So you think its ok to hold other people responsible, but not ourselves?
My argument with you is the same as Lap. We have always prided ourselves in being better than the enemy. They are going to do horrible things, they're terrorists. That's what they do, they try and intimidate through fear and hate. We shouldn't stoop to that level. If we do we are no better. You can't win the ideological war by adopting their practices.
We do these things AND are still better than them. We are not just trying to win an idealogical war here. We are trying to save American lives.
By the way, there are certain Obama policies that I want to fail. I don't see anything wrong with that. The difference with Bush as that people just hated him, period. We don't hate Obama, we just hate his ideas.
