Murder and Mutilation....or Waterboarding?
Meanwhile, our murderous sociopathic enemies continue to take hostages, mutilate them, and kill them--while in the meantime utopian nutjobs on this side of the pond argue as to whether pouring water up an inhuman monster's snout ought to be "permitted" or not. Please.
You will excuse my non-PC sensibilities, but we are in a WAR for the survival of our civilization here; count me in with Don Surber:
The enemy mails severed fingers of Western hostages. And I’m supposed to worry about some terrorist getting water poured over him?
And I don’t want to hear about retaliation.
KSM beheaded Daniel Pearl long before we waterboarded KSM.
Anyway, AP reported: “Severed fingers of five Western hostages were reportedly sent to U.S. government officials, giving the men’s relatives hope that they are still alive, a brother of one of the missing men said.”
It quoted the twin brother of a hostage, Patrick Reuben, a Minneapolis police officer: “certainly hopeful, but there’s nothing definite right now.”
The bastards took 5 hostages in 2006: Paul Reuben, a former St. Louis Park, Minn., police officer; Joshua Munns of Redding, Calif.; John Young of Kansas City; Jonathon Cote of the Buffalo, N.Y. area, and Bert Nussbaumer of Austria.
The AP report is here.
Two wrongs don’t make a right, true, but waterboarding is to mutilating hostages what running a red-light is to DUI.
I disagree with the analogy only in degree: to me the difference between what these inhuman monsters do and waterboarding is more akin to rolling a Stop sign compared to intentional vehicular manslaughter; and it is nothing short of criminal to sit back and say nothing as "feel good" moral relativists try and equate the two.
