If you had the guys in custody who cut off that American`s head in Iraq, would you want to torture them in an equally horrible way?

This question would, obviously, get a bigger reaction from Americans than anyone else. If it was someone from let's say Asia, then they would have every right to be angry and would want to see them punished. If it was someone in your own family, you would want to see them in pain and suffer. What you think and what you do are often totally different things.

Malletman got to the crux of the question. It asks 'Would you *want* to', not 'is it right to'...

I wouldn't want to, but if I had a personal connection to the matter, that may make me want to. But that's not the point.

We've got to attempt to do the right thing even when it affects us personally. When something does affect us personally, our priorities are changed, and to remain objective, and to try and establish the right thing to do despite your feelings is one of the hardest things in the world.

And, I quickly add, I'm not sure I'd be capable of doing the right thing in a situation like this that affected me personally.

It would be hard not too, but I would have to refrain because 2 wrongs don't make a right.

Lets just say no one would ever know.

I am so glad you asked this question. If we are supposedly against torture as a country, and against terrorist acts, (I mean they are supposed to be morally wrong right?), then why would we torture a torturer or terrorize a terrorist??? Doesnt that just give them justification for their acts? Just remember: HATE BREEDS HATE!!!! HATE BREED HATE!!!! I stand in disgust of anyone who would think torturing torturers is right and just.

No. Beheading is just too nice. I would strip them naked and stack them in pyramids, let dogs bark at them, dress them in women's undies, put them on leashes. You know all that REALLY cruel and abusive stuff.

The vengeful side of me says that I'd torture them to a slow and very painful death.
But no...I wouldn't. Two wrongs don't make a right and all that.

Estella and pi have summed it up rather nicely.

I would be tempted to give them a good smacking, but I'd be more interested in hearing how on earth they came to the conclusion that this would be a good thing to do, trying to give them a clue as to why it is not, and then sending them to jail for the rest of their lives.

18 yrs ago - Tuesday 9/21/04 - 10:10:49 AM EST (GMT-5)
Andres-For some reason I don't think they'd last an hour in jail. Not here anyway.
17 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Wednesday 10/13/04 - 10:47:02 PM EST (GMT-5)
oh hell yes. i'd sit them down and force them to listen to Christian books-on-tape.
17 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Sunday 10/17/04 - 7:24:21 PM EST (GMT-5)
I wouldn't but not because it would "make me as bad as them."

I'm just not the kind of person who would do that, and I don't want to become the kind of person who would. I want to continue to like myself.

17 yrs ago, 9 mos ago - Thursday 12/9/04 - 1:26:27 PM EST (GMT-5)
No, I have nothing against them.
17 yrs ago, 9 mos ago - Monday 12/13/04 - 1:33:47 PM EST (GMT-5)
no ... just feed them some pork--->muslims believe that in eating pork they are not worthy to go to heaven and worship their precious allah.
then, i would arrange to give them FULL sex change operations, so that they'd be women. their society women are shattle.

then, i would send them back to iraq ... so that their counterparts could torture them for being pork eating women(infidels). those crazy muslims come up with the darndest methods of torture... i'd just 'give them their wings and let them fly.'

you can certainly tell the difference between the people who have actually seen the horror of what they did and the ones who did not. It is a natural reaction for the people who saw it to want to kill those maggots for what they did. They should suffer...long and hard... those people who think we are all scum. Don't forget that they think they can enter paradise by killing themselves while taking a million of us infidels with them. I wouldn't be the one to torture them but I have confidence that they will eventually suffer horrible for what they have done. What comes around, goes around.
17 yrs ago, 9 mos ago - Monday 12/13/04 - 4:05:12 PM EST (GMT-5)
I wouldn't want to. If I repeated their cruelty, I wouldn't have any right to condemn it.
17 yrs ago, 9 mos ago - Tuesday 12/28/04 - 3:03:22 PM EST (GMT-5)
I would tie them up and be made to watch Madonna movies all the time. One right after another including her music videos. Now that is punishment.
Listening to christian tapes would not be a punishment, maybe they will repent and be saved.

two words PSYCHOLOGICAL TOURTURE, you can not teach a dead person. You can teach others with A dead but you can not teach THE dead person. however keep them alive and mess with there heads and they will learn.
<<< Teaching them sounds to me like they are missing something, missing 'the correct American viewpoint'. They have their own moral set, and as destructive as it is they don't need to learn cuz obviously what they believe is worth dying for. Teaching is for people who want to expand their minds. Teach them, huh? ..My ass.

Listening to christian tapes would not be a punishment, maybe they will repent and be saved.
<<< Saved by the God of Christians though.. for them I'd think that's horrible.
17 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Sunday 2/20/05 - 4:59:33 AM EST (GMT-5)
No, I don't believe in an eye for an eye.
17 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Saturday 3/19/05 - 1:11:59 PM EST (GMT-5)
doin the same thing that they did to that american would just show them that were as bad as everyone else. besides we cant do everything they do. thats what gives us more power
17 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Friday 3/25/05 - 2:39:37 AM EST (GMT-5)
I'm not saying I'd do anything, but I'd definitely want to.
17 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Friday 4/1/05 - 12:11:55 PM EST (GMT-5)
wouldnt that be cruel and unusual punishment?
