I also find it rather counterproductive when you're referring to our tactics of interrogation as stooping to their level. I wasn't aware that we were beheading Muslims in the name of religion on national TV. I also wasn't aware that we were holding them for ransom money and threatening to execute more of them should we not get our money and arms.
Subjecting inmates to sleep deprivation and the other tactics in that article are not even on the same planet as "their level". I bet you all of the Americans that were beheaded would love to have just been subjected to waterboarding or sleep deprivation, or being chained up naked. But no, they are beheaded on TV after having to read some bull shit speech they prepared for them. Its appalling to me that you say we stooped to their level when we are not even close to their level. Our "torture" was nothing but gum drops and lollipops compared to theirs. Again, maybe we shouldn't have done it, and it will be a learning lesson. But when citizens of our own country use our tactics that were not even on the same planet as theirs, and compare the two saying we did the same thing they did, it's bull shit. Its actually helping the enemy because in order to not deal with civilian backlash, they will implement some bull shit rule putting our troops in further danger. The rules of engagement are already fucked beyond belief placing the upper hand immediately into the enemy favor. And that's all because people thousands of miles away from the battle field make comments like you did that are self defeating to their own country.
Also, there is a huge difference between rounding up Japanese Americans and placing them in Internment camps, and interrogating known terrorists. The Japanese citizens did nothing wrong. In many cases the people that were interrogated had American blood on their hands. The one they even mentioned was one of Bin Laden's right hand men. And you're comparing them to Japanese civilians that got placed in internment camps for nothing more than their nationality? There isn't even a comparison to be made there. Once again you're comparing things on two totally different planets. Furthering the self defeating comments about America. Yes, you have ever right to question the tactics, but when you question them to the point you're making what they did worse, you're not helping. Question them all you want, ensure we learn from them by running for office. But by comparing us to the enemy saying we used tactics at their level, that's completely off base, and hurting us far more than you realize.
