I actually never knew what water boarding was, just it was some sort of torture. My personal take on the use of water boarding is, use it. If by the use water boarding, innocent lives can be saved, use it. Dont even give it a second thought. The bleeding hearts out there that are against it, might just think differently if they ever had a loved one killed by some senceless terrorist act. Just ask the families of the victims of 911, if it could have been prevented by water boarding. How many would say no to it.
Well anyways, my brother sent me this, very interesting.

Please, please, please delete this thread. I have many strong opinions on this subject but this is not the place for it.


I can explain it to you but I can't understand it for you.

Sorry, I just never knew what water boarding was. In the video, it talks about the effect being so psychological. Ive never been water boarded, but I do equate it to a similar experience I have had.
I had to take a chlorine gas responce training course. We had to use scott air packs. Just as an example the instructor shuts off your air supply. You would not believe the panic that sets in, as soon as you cant take that first breath. The whole idea of that exercise was to try and prepare you in the event that you did have a no air situation. I still think Id panic though.
I didnt mean to stir anything up, I just found the vid to be rather interesting

It's not the video that I object to. It's the inevitable heated pro-con debate about torture as an information gathering tool that I'd rather not see.

Discussions such as this rarely, if ever go well on this sight or any sight where people can not have the discussions in person or they do not know each other well. As a rule, I refrain from any political, religious or other discussion on this board where emotions and strong convictions are involved.

I'm with Michael, whenever it comes to my personal views regarding politics and religion on message boards I keep 'em to myself ... for sure.

Now if you want to talk fishin'. ;\)

Jeez, good thing I clicked the link, I thought water boarding was like snow boarding, except on water.

"Water boarding, not as much fun as it sounds."


I started out with nothing & I've still got most of it left
