: Botched liberation? I can't recall ANY liberation that occurred without bloodshed. Freedom isn't free, y'know.
Weak excuse for a long chain of blunders that have cost thousands their lives already, with no end in sight and terrorist recruiting skyrocketing. EA CO AS
: There is no proof that U.S. forces tortured anyone to death - and if that DID occur, those directly responsible will be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.
Would be nice; Experience doesn´t necessarily support that, though. There´s a strong tendency to sweep it under the rug; We can only hope that the will to get to the bottom of this comes through, this time. EA CO AS
: But to answer your question, even if the number were just one less than the number of people who would otherwise have been tortured to death by Saddam's henchmen, then I'd argue it's probably worth it (meaning X deaths are worse than X deaths minus 1).
According to that, repeating the Holocaust in the other direction would have been justified - as long as the allies would have stopped the furnaces in the death camps just one
prisoner short of matching Hitler´s death toll?
Sorry, but with moral standards like that
you can just pack up, go home and close the door in silent shame.
