Why is it that when a conservative’s letter is printed, it’s nearly always responded with a liberal’s hatred and rhetoric? I said in my letter that water boarding was not torture. It doesn’t matter how many liberals respond; I will never back down from my viewpoints.

What I said in my letter is 100 percent true. You can have your own opinions about whether water boarding is torture if you want. That won’t change the fact that Daniel Pearl and Terry Schiavo were tortured. You don’t have to be asked any questions for it to be torture. You don’t have to be conscious for it to be torture. By definition, torture is deliberately inflicting pain on a person. The terrorists were never in any pain underwater. And just so you know, the people who carried out the water boarding were water boarded also, just so they would know what it felt like. Now tell me this: If water boarding is torture, why would they let that happen to themselves?

If any liberal can come up with a better way to get vital information from evil scumbags like the terrorists, I’d like to know what that is. I’ll be looking forward to a reply.
