    LOL. That's brilliant! I like that much better than water boarding. They never actually tell the guy, "You're gonna die." They just let him hear someone squeeze off a couple rounds in the next room and let his imagination do the rest of the work! Excellent post! I'll be sorry to see this practice discountinued.

    boo hoo...now you can't even threaten and scare terrorists?

    what a pile of crap.

    frankly, i think they should use this method from the film "The Gods Must Be Crazy"

    watch from the :50 second mark through the 2:05 mark. Now that is effective

    perhaps they should call terrorist names and then whine and tattletail on them. this type of action against an enemy is not the first nor the last time it will happen.

    I know there's been a fuss about extraordinary rendition and waterboarding and stuff, but this:
    Iranian boy who defied Tehran hardliners tells of prison rape ordeal - Times Online
    ...seems in a whole different league.

    Funny how fanatics justify horrific actions and think they're 'doing it for God', when it actually runs counter to everything He supposedly endorses. :/

    (Maybe not the right thread for this? - but didn't know where else to post it).

    Well, although I don't believe the mercenaries are still working under the name of Blackwater, the organization still exists. You have a nice, blonde-haired evangelical christian as the CEO/President who believes Islam should be eradicated from the face of the earth and, since his employees (the majority of whom are retired US military-trained special forces), are working for the blonde christian loony as private contractors. You just know the torture continues. However, the USA government is not held accountable for it.

    What's interesting (albeit, a bit spooky) is walking around Barcelona and seeing little clots (four or five) of these previous Blackwater types on Rest and Recreation in Spain, sitting al fresco drinking Coca Cola, all dressed exactly alike (black T-shirts or black turtlenecks, gray or charcoal slacks, and $250 Adidas) making a little show of themselves. They also show up in Paris. Then they go back to doing what they do best: serving as personal advisors to the presidents of Pakistan and Afganistan or melding into the background of problem areas in Iraq.

    'Mericuhns really need to travel to Europe and learn how to relax in public so they can see these guys on leave. They are as easy to spot as Ford Taurus full of FBI agents. Sadly, most god-fearing 'Mericuhns lead their lives in a haze of distraction, just like when they haul their pack of children to Disneyland.
