Then why is Scotland Yard investigating MI5 agents for involvement in torture cases?

Every government investigates folks for what they themselves are doing. I'm sure you know how hypocritical governments are. What people are told to do, as official policy, and what is done, are rarely similar.

Quote:
Torture is not suppose to be "part of the game" when the United States is involved.

You're joking, right? This country is no different from any other in this regard. We do whatever it takes to safeguard the country. And we have tortured for it. And we do. And we always will. I don't like it on a personal level, but as I said, I would steadfastly partake if I knew firsthand it meant saving someone I cared about.

Quote:
Those images worked as outstanding recruitment tools for terrorist organizations, as is shown by them showing up on terrorist organization recruitment videos. Letting a few prisoners go, without mistreating them, is certainly preferable to the damage those images did to the United State's image among the general Arab public.

No, it is naive. In the extreme. If we had let them go unharmed, they would have used the images of their "polite" capture to show potential recruits that they can do whatever the hell they want to us and nothing bad will happen to them because America is kind even to its enemies. Its a win win for them, always will be. Not that it would matter, they did just fine recruiting well before 9\11, and after, without the videos.

I'm done arguing about it too.

I win a congratulatory bowl of nachos and cheese dip. And salsa. Take that, foolish mortals.

You must be one of those Unitarian chip eaters.

And we have entered Guacamole into our faction. Tremble before the might of Unification. Join or Die.

Oh, I have no tolerance for the Guacs. Have you seen their services? Women dipping their own chips. Really, it's abhorrant. Everyone knows that her husband should dip for her... it even says so right on the back of the jars. That text has been carefully handed down from print head to print head since God himself inspired the first one, and each printing machine is hand started by a celibate monk who is sworn to subsist on cheese and chips alone.

The scandal of the monk having relations with the cheese extruder was an isolated incident, and we're absolutely certain that all of the defiled jars were successfully recalled.

Psh. Guacs. Have they no respect for anything?

Goddamn guacs think they can just come into our country and expect us to accommodate them. They don't pay taxes, they don't speak the language -- they're all just a bunch of thieves and freeloaders. I say we ought to throw the bums out. Salsa is the one true path!

Spilled guacamole does not make a green card! Out with them!

Though I have *cough* reservations about salsa, I propose a shaky alliance in which we avoid mentioning our differences and shift our talking points to the evils of guacamole. No one will be able to resist the power of our combined bigotry!



Curse your sudden but inevitable betrayal! Oh, was I early?

We must not fight my brethren. We can all come together and worship as one, with a non-denominational multi layer chip dip. Bean dip, Guac, Salsa, and Queso may all come together into one beautiful union of scrumptious flavors.


Note: This is by far the most epic thread hijack to date.

And bonus points for jacking two threads.

I did now.

Also: this is indeed an epic thread hijack, though I in no way advocate any alliance with heathen cheese dip or guacamole. I could probably agree to the beans if we could include sour cream in the alliance.

I wish to retain my neutrality status.... I am a peace loving eater of all dips, cheesy or salsic, and would hate to have to side against former friends. That being said, I must say that the guacs are indeed instigating this conflict with their evil "free thinking". There is still time to conform.....

I got an e-mail published on The Daily Dish: Link

It probably could have gone in a different thread but I really didn't feel like making a new one for just one post.

I'd teabag me some clueless neocons but I don't want to get my sack dirty.
