Yes sure it is!
Torture happens during all wars, anyway.. Why should our troops be denied this weapon?
Torture is a must...at least the appearance of torture is. What's worse than torture? The FEAR of torture. Create a few sparks, bring in a waterboarding table, sharpen a few knives and BAM, you got your info...not that simple but you get the idea.
All part of the game
You know who didn't use harsh torture methods? Hitler.
Obtain the info at any cost. Truth Serum doesn't actually work
Is it okay? No. It's wrong to torture enemy soldiers, unless they are Hitler level bad. I'm not saying it should stop, but it's not okay. It's necessary perhaps.
When Americans interrogated the Germans they cooked them up stake dinners and played table tennis with them, guess what? It worked.
The use of torture by the United States will legitimize its use by terrorist organizations and will lose us support. Torture is also incredibly inconsistent as prisoners can give out false information which only serve to waste your time and recourses.
1) ots barbaric 2) Its literally been proven that it doesnt work to give accurate information so at this point your basically just doing it for vengenve.
One of the main problems with torture is that people will give you anything you want to hear to make it stop. Even if they have to lie.
it doesn't even work
