The Post 9/11 Saturation Of Our Culture In Torture

The Post 9/11 Saturation Of Our Culture In Torture

The fact that we are even having to face the question of whether torture is a consideration of any modern civilized State is mind-blowing in itself. Even the most heinous of bloodthirsty empires throughout history have dismissed the use of and even outlawed torture.

According to an AP poll released today, most Americans and a majority of people in Britain, France and South Korea say torturing terrorism suspects is justified at least in rare instances. Almost two-thirds in the United States support such interrogations in the U.S. by their own government. Unbelievable.

The attitude of "if it saves lives any measures of interrogation should be permissible" is fundamentally flawed. Under torture a person will say anything he thinks his captors want to hear, whether it is true or false, if he believes it will relieve his suffering. Torture never produces reliable results, it only creates false leads and implicates the wrong people. Furthermore, and this perhaps the most critical and bone chillingly dangerous point, torture is the MOST degrading, demoralizing, hideous thing one human being can do to another. Almost two-thirds in the United States support such interrogations in the U.S. by their own government. Unbelievable.

There is a coordinated, outlined agenda underway at the hands of the globalist crazy Neo-Cons to redefine the meaning of torture for a "post 9/11 world" and make it commonplace within our culture. Torture has always existed since the dawn of time, yet no authority throughout the history of the planet has ever openly admitted to its practice - until now. Not even the Nazis had the gall to go as far as the Neo-Cons have.
