Should the world demand torture prosecutions?

with 3 comments


(AP) Republican presidential candidate John McCain reminded people Thursday that some Japanese were tried and hanged for torturing American prisoners during World War II with techniques that included waterboarding.

“There should be little doubt from American history that we consider that as torture otherwise we wouldn’t have tried and convicted Japanese for doing that same thing to Americans,” McCain said during a news conference.

  1. Without a doubt Greg. The April 23rd edition of Countdown covered the topic very well http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/3036677/

  2. We used to have this constant argument at our house about Condy Rice. Whenever she came on TV I took one look at that evil, I-don’t-give-a-shit face and I’d want to break the screen. Leanne would bag me for being a ‘woman hater’ (I’m not, I actually love women!) and she’d side with Condy because, like all modern thinking women, she wants to see her ‘sisters’ get on and break the glass ceiling.

    Fair enough.

    But I reckon I was right.

    • Breaking the glass ceiling was not enough. She wanted to be a ball breaker. I think the movement to prosecute the hierarchy is gaining more momentum every day.
