Waterboarding Allowed? | Main | New James Bond Song "Leaked"
September 22, 2006

Good Point

Ask yourself this:

Would you voluntarily undergo waterboarding to save someone else's life? Would you undergo hypothermia, belly-slapping, or any of the other techniques if by so doing lives would be saved?

If you can honestly say yes--and I can--then I don't see what the problem is with doing it to someone else.

On the other hand, I can't say that I'd let someone lop off my fingers with bolt cutters, knuckle by knuckle, to save a life.

-- Dicentra

I can only imagine this means that Sullivan and the other anti-coercion absolutists would not trade some temporary pain and discomfort to save an innocent human life.
