And a lot of whining and bitching.
Its 9/11 and I am thinking about water boarding.
On the day we watched people die, there was a rolling wave of outrage that rippled through out the land.
Think what you want about President Bush now, but he was awesome during that time.
We chased that rotten shit head Ben Ladin all thru the mountains and couldn’t catch him.
And then the whining began.
Waterboarding was screamed at in the news as being torture.
Except that it wasn’t.
The reporter from CNN had it done to him on camera by an ex CIA agent. Within 30 seconds of being waterboarded, he was back on camera, microphone in hand.
How is something so terrible that the media screams that we are hideously torturing people if it leaves no damage and is being done by reporters to make a good story.
John McCain can tell you about some torture.
Broken knee, broken shoulder. Stabbed in the ankle and the groin. Cracked ribs, broken teeth.
That is torture.
Waterboarding is tough, to be sure, not something you want to do, unless you can benefit from it. But it is not torture.
Put an Ohio state shirt on the waterboardee, pour beer on them and have them sing the Ohio State fight song?
Its a hazing prank.
The big argument is that torture doesn’t work.
Then explain why every society since the dawn of time has used it. Because it doesn’t work?
Morally, they don’t want it to work. They hate that there was actually terror plots blocked because of info gained by waterboarding.
The argument should be, should we use torture.
The answer is no.
But waterboarding is not torture.
Let me say that one again. Waterboarding is not torture.
There is no permanent damage. It scares people. Scaring people is not torture.
If so, zombie films are torture. They scare the shit out of me.
How dare you violate my civil rights like that.
I think that one of the saddest things about the anniversary of 9/11 is that it has been a decade of whining and accusations. Should we have done this? Should we have invaded there? With a war on, we have had people who disagree with the president calling childish names and definitely giving the impression that they can change our minds with violence and threats.
These are the same people that piss and moan when you question Obama.
Usually, they call you a racist for disagreeing with him.
Here are the basic facts. Due to what they claim are valid reasons, terrorists hijacked a total of 3 planes. They ran 2 of them into the Twin Towers. The towers fell.
Another plane crashed, after the passengers tried to overpower the hijackers.
Al Qaeda hailed it as a victory. And, I guess if you think you were in a war at the time, it was.
So how can they bitch when we begin scouring the planet to ferret them out like vermin.
Fuck em. I am tired of caring what anyone outside of this country thinks.
The one thing I would like more than anything is to get the opinions of people I have never met.
The ones that died on 9/11.
However, they aren’t talking.
And I hope that silence is never forgotten like it has been for the last 10 years.
