A TORTURE CHALLENGE: WATERBOARDING VERSUS NAIL-PLUCKING
I challenge any and all libs who claim that water-boarding is torture to choose which they'd rather be subjected to, water-boarding or nail-plucking.
We all know what they ALL would really choose.
And nails grow back!
Hitchens famously volunteered to be water-boarded and famously called it torture a few minutes later. He even posted as YOUTUBE video of it. (It looks awful: as bad as... being forced to read Vanity Fair.)
Doubtless a few minutes later Hitchens had a puff and a slurp. AHHHHHHH!
Had all his nails been plucked I think he would have requested mush MUCH more serious pain remediation than a cigarette and a scotch.
This demonstrates the absolutely phony posing of the anti-water-boarding crowd.
No one volunteers for REAL torture.
McCain was REALLY tortured and carries the scars. The REAL scars.
What the CIA did to KSM and others was not torture.
Those who claim it is are torturing the truth.
UPDATE: 20 MINTUES LATER AND ALLAHPUNDIT MAKES THE SAME POINT - WITH NEW VIDEO AND GREAT LINKS.
BOTTOM-LINE: THE LIBS WHO ATTACK WATER-BOARDING SHOULD STFU.
