The image is a bit harsh but i see what you mean
Concerning torture, i don't like the term, I don't like torture, but i am in favor of the use of enhanced interrogation techniques against a potential terrorist, if it can save a lot of lives, by preventing a terrorist attack, or having information to arrest a terrorist

Comment for FreedomHawk

The US saw the communist threath. They decided to strike.

When you strike an enemy, you should always strike hard, no holds barred. I see that you are pro-torture.

America needed to show the Russians, that they were ready to tie electric wires to the balls of every communist in Vietnam.

The wires, off course, carried pulses of electricity :-)

I think Vietnam was an unjust war. There are so many reasons why it was but I will list 3. One reason being we didn't accomplish anything by going to Vietnam. What did we really accomplish going there? NOTHING! My second reason being we destroyed a country and families had to watch. Picture being in your home with your family and outside your window you hear bombs and guns. What would you tell your children? You are surrounded by something that you can't control and I'm sure it was terrifying for the people who had to sit through that. Their homes were getting destroyed. Innocent people were getting killed. A country was destroyed. My last reason for why Vietnam is unjust is simple. Is killing 58,000 Americans and thousands o Vietnamese really worth it? Can anybody ever justify killing that many people? I can't. Vietnam was a war that should have never happened. We accomplished nothing, we destroyed a country, and killed thousands of people. We had such a strong government and authorities, we could have found other ways to solve our differences. War is NEVER the answer.

Hey! I saw you forfeited this round. It's no big deal but if you want we can start the debate again. No I mean, if we want to stick to the rules it makes no sence if I refute arguments you didn't have time to give and if you refute mine without having said yours :)
