@BigFish What's the difference between someone bringing in a bomb and blowing up 50 innocent people and the US dropping bombs and killing 50 innocent people? Torture is wrong no matter how many lives it may or may not save.
@ReDxSiLLy The difference is intent, obviously. There's a reason we don't carpet bomb anymore, and that we try to minimize collateral damage. As strange as it sounds, "torturing" may be morally wrong and still be the right thing to do in certain situations (like to save lives.)
