I just got up to speed about people being upset about enhanced interrogation techniques…. this so called torture.
#1 most of what was listed as “torture” was done to me in training so I have no sympathy. It sucks but it’s not torture.
#2 and this is the most critical thing……
If you are not a grunt, in SOCOM, the CIA or some other front line job, shut the fuck up. You don’t have the right to bitch about what other men do in this regard. I am not sure you even have the right to approve of what is done. It is not your ass on the line. It’s not your friends and family’s life on the fucking line. It’s not you who watch your once healthy friends struggle to get by on one leg, or his widow cry, his kids grow up without a father. You don’t pay the price for failing to extract the intell, you don’t get a say in how it’s done.
We have lost the war because civilians dictate to us. Every dollar spent, every life lost, every limb lost, every life ruined has been wasted, pissed away because those who risk nothing dictate to those who risk everything.
