  • By international law and by Geneva convention..it is torture,by any definition and proponents should be held accountable by an international court of law.USA says because it is not a signatory to the Geneva convention,the rules don't apply to it's behaviour. I find that not only reprehensible,but a disgusting perversion of justice. It seems that only the losing side in any war is held accountable,which begs the question about war crimes committed by US forces in Vietnam...which they lost...as to why then were they not charged with those atrocities. Might is not right and America needs to start doing the right thing ,not covering things up...and a little less finger-pointing and more self-analysis. As bad as 9/11 was,it does not give them the right to ignore basic human rights,particularly the ones in their own constitution. The hypocrites are placing themselves equally as criminal as the terrorists,in the way they have conducted themselves since 9/11.
  • Violence to life and person, in particular murder of all kinds, mutilation, cruel treatment and torture;Taking of hostages; Outrages upon personal dignity, in particular, humiliating and degrading treatment;The passing of sentences and the carrying out of executions without previous judgment pronounced by a regularly constituted court affording all the judicial guarantees which are recognized as indispensable by civilized peoples.
  • If this war is a war against evil as some claim, I would say that evil is winning; we are becoming it.
  • It has not done anything to help the "war" on terror.
