This subject got bounced off the other thread, so maybe it will last longer here.
Richard - you opined that physical torture is never all right, but mental torture ALWAYS is.
You went on to use Saddam Hussein as an example of where it is OK to use psychological torture.
Let's grant that this one example is OK - you still did not explain how that justifies your contention that mental torture is ALWAYS ok.
Moderator - I know you dislike me, but I don't think that you can argue that I am abusing anyone by asking this question.
