… chicken when they attack “torture” that saved American lives.
Military “torture” of captured terrorists that saved millions of American lives is not the kind Liberal monopods think it is.
To catch Media attention, ingrates are whining that “torture” is illegal and unconstitutional but like headless chicken cannot see that “torture” of captured terrorists to prevent more bombing of buildings and stop killing more Americans, was approved by Congress and therefore not only legal but also as constitutional as President George Washington was as the nation’s first Commander-In-Chief!
The irony is, those ingrates were saved from being dead victims of terror … saved by military “torture” of incarcerated Islamic assassins and their traitor accomplices … saved by an “interrogation technique” used by the military and approved by Congress, which they have the gall to attack as “illegal” when it is not.
Monopods are those whose mind stands only on one leg when it is trying to understand the word “torture”. It cannot distinguish between military “torture” of Islamic terrorists caught by the long arms of the law who had taken many American lives, bombed and destroyed our buildings, and a civilian “torture” of a pickpocket caught stealing who is abused by rogue policemen or subjected to “waterboarding” by sadistic agents of the law.
The first version of “torture” in the military saved millions of American lives, the second version is a disgrace to all our law enforcement officers [not the military] because of a behavioral flaw in carrying out their sworn duty to fight crimes.
There is a mountain of difference between these two versions of “torture” the size of it is much larger than the United States of America, or even larger than life itself!
Do Liberal monopods and their radical entourage see this huge difference? Not at all … how can they when they attack military “torture” of captured Islamic assassins that bombed and killed Americans, like headless chicken?
I am writing in this column a constructive – not destructive – response to Chuck Adkins’ report on Eric Holder written by Paleo Pat that appeared on FP.com on
. Chuck Adkins is a Libertarian writer who opposed most of my editorials in the Internet. Holder is Obama’s hatchet man who wants to prosecute those responsible for the “torture” of terrorists under the previous Bush administration. Author Pat has a nightmare if Holder’s delusion of grandeur will come to pass. Pat was attacked by torture monopods.
If by reporting this NewsWeek-sourced editorial Adkins subscribes to the truth Pat has written about “torture” then my response to Chuck is also my response to Pat rolled into one. Both were targets of monopod attacks acting like headless chicken. It is difficult for me to just standby with arms akimbo without intervening in their defense to expose a deleterious lie about “torture”.
To Chuck: we cross swords on many issues … you know that, and millions of readers knew this. But this is the first time that our minds met in a cafeteria of thoughts to celebrate a homonym on terror.
The same word we have in mind to describe the reactions of your monopod critics and mine — “ungrateful”.
We have projected the idea of what “torture” means that these “champions” of “full of $#it” vocabulary [you have not seen yet the worst of this gutter vocabulary] should be grateful they are not six feet below the ground right now [my line]. What they understand about your line and Pat’s line is that Bush had saved a lot of ingrates in this war on terror. Since they hated Bush more than they hated their mothers-in-law, the truth you projected hurt them and the wound you inflicted was as painful as when a deranged dentist used a monkey wrench to pull off an abscess tooth.
Aside from what I have written in my columns online and in print [newspapers], surf the Net and my editorials on Patriot Act, as amended — e.g. the requirement of a Military Tribunal that dispenses justice to cold-blooded killers in a savage war they started outside the declared principles of the Vienna Convention and beyond the ambit of International Law; the necessity of knowing the plans and deadly activities of Islamic terrorists in America and abroad before they can detonate their dirty bombs and blow us up to kingdom come; the critical need for a military interrogation technique [i.e. waterboarding] fit for incarcerated terrorists and their accomplices which terrorist protectors called “torture” that saved millions of American lives, etc. – inundate almost all major Websites that hit millions of readership!
What kind of “torture” is it that is hard for Liberal monopods to understand is summed up here to help them understand more as follows: "The point I am trying to make is this, that the so-called “torture”, which was approved by Congress, prevented attacks on Los Angeles and various cities around the country. It also saves lives and gets people to talk. It is also used to train our Military as well."
These are all mentioned in several of my editorial reports on terror that I am talking about. By restating it here, I just want to make sure that what has been endorsed for reading on this subject is inspiring to those who want to discover a long standing lie that denies the truth of how we stopped Al Qaeda dead on its track like a cold cucumber. Those murderous varmints of the human race were unable to attack us since
. Unfortunately, this truth is the target of the lie campaign waged by Liberal and radical monopods that argue heedlessly like chicken whose heads were chopped off for a lavish “adobo” dinner!
By the way, “Adobo” is a delicious oriental gastronomy of chicken after the Iron Chef uses an inch-thick cleaver to cut the head of the fowl just to dramatize the skill of butchery in the kitchen. It’s a scary kind of “murder” in the kitchen, and the scene is as blood-curling as those ingrates’ murder of the truth that the “torture” of the killer-enemy-of-the-state by the military at war, is “illegal” when it is not!
It proves beyond reasonable doubt the fact that the learning curve of ingrates moves so slow it reminds me of this advertised picture of a column of turtles racing in a remote beach of Hawaii at night, not to speak of motor vehicles moving slower than Chinatown’s 6:00 PM traffic in downtown Los Angeles. For example, they are still blaming Bush on “torture” when they should blame Congress that approved it because “torture” in the military in a war that has no moral boundary stands on different pods of meaning as seen by the mind of Congress …it is not the kind of “torture” that those bucket kickers have a reason to kick!
I must repeat this distinction for fear of being misunderstood … if I have to restate it over and over again, I would: Torture of civilian prisoners outside of this nameless war on terror, is not the same as “torture” of captured Islamic terrorists in Guantanamo that saved millions of American lives. Do ingrates know that? No, they don’t. Torturing an Islamic terrorist – the enemy of the States – who had already killed a lot of Americans and still wanting to kill us all, is to them the same as if a pickpocket was tortured by the military to make the culprit cough out where the stolen item was hidden! They should get out from this delusion while they still can, before it develops into a severe psychological problem. The cost of healthcare [i.e., psychiatric treatment]is rising so fast that even just to call an ambulance or to be in a white straitjacket is getting dreadfully nasty. Just to say that it is becoming unaffordable is an unfair understatement.
I recommend that readers surf the Web. It is easy to find many studies of the moral justification of “torture” of the enemy by the military in a war not only to win the war but for the survival of a nation at war. Monopods too busy of being ingrates are quite slow in learning about this, but they can still catch up.
But here is the irritating part of it all – and this again I must repeat: To headless monopods, “torture” is illegal. No it is not when it is approved by Congress [see Patriot Act, as amended, passed by Congress]. They lie miserably, like a kid with a sweet tooth caught pocketing a chocolate bar in a candy store.
Ingrates’ way of thinking is that “torture” violates our moral code in the world of political idealism. No it does not when it saves the lives of those who said so in the world of reality.
Here’s the catch: The flame of idealism against torture blazes when you have a life to light it up … but not if terrorists take that life away first and consigned you six feet below the ground! It should give a clear idea which should come first – a life for you to live, or your fatal idea against this kind of “torture”, which supports terrorists’ curse to cut off heads and turn ingrates into headless chicken for dinner.
We are all Americans and we don’t like torture more than we abhor the enemy of liberty and freedom. But we have to use our brain to know why we don’t like it, not just dislike it because the word “torture” is unlikable!
If we have to go Confucian to understand more succinctly what I am saying here … even fluttering headless chicken destined for dinner need their heads back so badly at least to know what they are doing, even though not necessarily to know where they are heeding! #
