No amount of rationalization will justify the use of unduly “harsh treatment,” or if you will, “torture.”... Even if it were true that torture draws reliable intelligence, this nation should be above medieval inquisitions which could also spread to all captives including our own. Those who were allegedly engaged in such unlawful tactics should be reprimanded and a public censure against the previous administration for violating the trust of the people.
Okay, I'll correct my statement. You stated it as above in your original post. The entire feel of the post was against what they did and there were no more than a passing shrug to say otherwise. Reread the post in a detached manner and I hope you can see where I'm coming from.
Why not subject me to torture to get to the truth in lieu of poking into my profile? I've answered this charge once before: I enlisted when I was fifteen.
As I stated in my post "you would have to be a couple years older in order to have met the draft requirements by the time the war ended. Though, there was more than one person who ended up getting in underaged by a year or two." Which is the truth, you were underaged which you admit. I had just glanced at your profile before responding, as I usually do on any forum when I am talking to someone who I don't know, and noticed your age. For many people they wouldn't bat an eyelash at it I'm sure, but I do remember that when the war started my grandfather just became old enough for the draft a month after and immediately volunteered before he could be drafted. Now, he would be 87 years old today, a full seven years older. I do understand that the war lasted for about five years, but that would have still made you two or three years too young to have been draft age which you admit. I didn't say that you weren't there, I just said that you were too young to have been supposed to have been there, which you admit is true. Actually, I was rather surprised to have someone of your age involved in yet alone starting this thread. My grandfather was very reluctant to use a computer at all, let alone talk to people online about a war which gave him nightmares for the rest of his life.
