Just What is Torture?

Let me get this straight. According to the President and our friends on the other side of the aisle, water boarding is torture. Despite the fact it was used very sparingly, a doctor was always present, and it has no long term effect on the suspect. Not to mention the fact that the few who have been water boarded, are murderous, terrorists who cut the heads off of innocent people. Also, let's not forget to throw in the fact that it worked, and the lives of countless Americans were saved thanks to water boarding and other enhanced interrogation techniques.

Yet partial birth abortion, a gruesome procedure whereby a fully developed baby is pulled out of the womb by its feet at which time a knife is stuck into the base of its skull and its brains sucked out, is not torture according to the Left. I guess I get it my progressive friends. The goal is murder the most innocent American life and to coddle the most guilty, murderous terrorists. What does that say about our values? You know the same values you always bring up in the torture debate, and which you completely ignore in every other context.God help us all.

God helps us all, indeed. I am more than mad at this issue. The left have it completely backwards. If sucking out a baby's brains is not torture, how about we just try that out on the terrorists? If it's not bad, let's just do it to anybody guilty of ANY crime since it is obviously not torture to an innocent baby -- surely the Left would agree to this. Let's plunge a knife into the skull and suck out the brains of even a petty thief, someone who is truly guilty of something, not an innocent baby.
