Torture: Does practicing torture NOT undermine the safety of a country's own troops?

  • When the US torture, other countries will feel entitled too

    When the pictures of sexual humiliation and beatings of prisoners at the hands of US soldiers in Abu Graib prison in Iraq, came out, it set off not only a international wave of outcry, but also provided cover to dictators everywhere.

  • Practicing Torture Makes It Acceptable

    Practicing torture does undermine the safety of a country's own troops because it makes the practice of torture acceptable, which makes it more likely that the other side of the conflict will practice torture as well and ultimately that puts prisoners of war at a greater risk for torture on both sides of the conflict, which reduces their safety. This is why we have international law against torture.

  • Torture is sometimes needed.

    Practicing torture does not undermine the safety of a country's own troops. If anything, it helps protect them and keep them safe. Not all countries follow the same rules especially during war time. If they did, there would probably not be war to begin with. Sometimes torture becomes necessary, especially when our country is dealing with terrorists.
