In a perfect world, there would be no evil, never would the rain fall during a parade.
In a perfect world the world would be friendly and men would all be friends, we would all just get along…
But the truth is that we do not live in that perfect world that so many people wish we lived in.
You know this is a hot topic, in many political circles, but you do have to consider this issue, and yes it is not a good thing to be doing.
The problem is this, if you are responsible for the welfare of a people, a nation, a country, and you know that your enemies, will be doing this to your soldiers, then you know that is part of what you will need to do in order to be prepared in the face of a hostile enemy.
The fact of the matter is that this is not something that just came up over the last few years, it has in fact been going on since the days of the earliest known record keeping, as far back as the Egyptian empire used it, they used it in Vietnam, I can tell you that it has been done, to every special forces soldier in the armed forces. A man would be a fool to not be prepared in the event this is used as a method of extracting information, we know this is the truth, yet there is somehow this idea that we should not be doing what our enemies do to our own members of armed forces.
No force for good or evil would ever consider facing an enemy without being prepared for the eventual capture and escape that might occur should you face an armed force that would be stupid, in fact it would spell the end of your people, we know this from the study of history.
The truth is that we as a species are not this ignorant, when faced with the facts waterboarding no matter how bad it may seem is a fact that we have to deal with we cannot just say that it is illegal and not moral, of course it is not and in fact neither is the decapitation of a man but that is what we have seen our enemies do to our own.
It is distasteful, it is abhorrent, but it is a fact and that is the one thing that you cannot ignore.
The truth is it has been used for hundreds of years, and it will continue to be used, nothing is going to change that.
So, even if you think it is a horrible evil thing, there are worse things…
That is something that you have to understand.
While it might sound important and interesting to be totally against water boarding the truth is that when you face an enemy,
that has no problem doing this then you have to deal with that eventual issue you cannot simply stick you head in the sand and say
never never never, the truth is that when it comes to saving the lives of millions of people, be it Americans, or others around the world,
the fact is that you have to consider this issue.
Ignoring the enemy is not an option that we can afford to engage in it might help you sleep better at night but what we know about
the enemy is the reality that our armed forces deal with it is the reality that we have to believe in.
