how about a quick debate? 15 min per round?`
Feyerabend

Con

War time is no time to be wasting time one should therefore postpone any sadistic acts to after a war, so as to to properly celebrate the bestial and all to satisfying feeling of satisfaction that comes from the orphanhood of ones enemies children and the wailing of his women. Torture is a poor tool of war let the enemy keep it.

In most arab countries, it is considered quite acceptable for soldiers to engage in acts of torture.
Indeed, military barracks and prisons are fitted with a "torture room" complete with benches with restraints, designed to strap down the prisoner of war. Sexual torture is used, not for the sadistic pleasure of the soldiers, but simply because it is the most effective method. This is not seen, in Arab culture as something wrong or perverted, but torture is a task of the soldier.
