125. Butch350, that was not eloquent. It was just plain inaccurate. One form of torture
IS NOT necessarily the same as another. Of course, it all induces pain and fear, but some is more horrible and can be administered in ways that make it slower and even more painful than other types of torture.

I don't know where you're getting your information, but some people have NO IDEA what torture really is and a dictionary definition will do nothing to help them understand. Words on a page are far less convincing than images.

To many Americans this is the discussion of a WORD, not horrific acts of physical violence against human beings. There are still ignorant assholes who are saying that waterboarding isn't even torture.
