I was tortured during my army training in the Serbian army.

What do you think?

Is it right to torture?
XLAV

I accept this debate.

Definition:
Torture
- the action or practice of inflicting severe pain on someone as a punishment or in order to force them to do or say something
http://www.oxforddictionaries.com...

In some circumstances, torture can be morally permissible if it involves saving innocent lives.

It seems like making the debating time 15 minutes long and be offline after posting the debate was a bad idea for my opponent. He also did not present any form of argument into the debate.

I urge the audience to vote for PRO.

It's okay to torture or be tortured for as long as there is an 'objective' behind the pain inflicted. And by 'objective', I do mean for the better.
