Humiliation Is Not Torture

Jeez Louise, the freaking touchy-feely Lefties have their panties all in a twist because the U.S. Army has revised it's detainee rules in its Field Manual.

The Pentagon has decided to omit from new detainee policies a key tenet of the Geneva Convention that explicitly bans "humiliating and degrading treatment," according to knowledgeable military officials, a step that would mark a further, potentially permanent, shift away from strict adherence to international human rights standards.
This goes back to the idiocy that was part of the whole Abu Graib story.

Typical that such "outrage" would come from a group of people that despise the brave men and women serving in our military and hurl insults at them as they lay suffering from wounds at Walter Reed Army Hospital. But when it comes to terrorists, don't you taunt them! Don't you humiliate them!!

Here's a clue, you Liberal pussies: When you are detaining enemy combatants who tried to kill Americans and would try again if they were released, hurting their widdow feewings is on the table. That is not torture. We have an enemy that follows NO rules. They lurk in the shadows. They pretend to be just like us. They use our trusting natures against us. And worst of all, they target and murder the innocent.

These are the kind of people that will kidnap someone who never did anything to them and cut off their heads in front of a video camera, for crissakes.

And we're supposed to get squeamish at the idea of making them stand around naked or wear panties on their heads? Please. We live in a new world, and it's a brutal one.

When Liberals get all indignant over the treatment of these murderers they remind voters exactly why they can't be trusted to deal with them.

1 Are you not aware that this is appropriate behavior in revealing your support of the 'troops'? Makes one wonder whose 'troops' they really do support... ------------------------------------------ Typical that such "outrage" would come from a group of people that despise the brave men and women serving in our military and hurl insults at them as they lay suffering from wounds at Walter Reed Army Hospital.

3 As a relatively liberal person, I feel obliged to say that in my experience and in my opinion, many liberals are not against the troops in Iraq. In fact, it is quite the opposite. Many are concerned about the welfare of these young men and women and want to see them come home as quickly as possible.
