Default Is torture ever justified?


Hi, I just finished an article about the possible justifications for torture.

Really, I suppose I am talking about harsh interrogation techniques, and if they are morally acceptable.

Its easy just to shout NO! etc... but I want arguments for/against...

I am against of course, but I want others opinions... is it ever right to aggressively interrogate someone if it could save the lives of thousands? would you do it to save the lives of your families???

I want to know your opinions... Seperate to whether you believe the 9/11 thing anywayz, just arguments about the moral justifications of such techniques, whether 9/11 and the threat of terrorism is real or not.

Thanks!

Here is the piece for reference: Is Torture Ever Justified?

- Feel free to comment / criticize on there also!

Looking forward to what you guys have to say!!!

Mike

Yes. I know its an odd question, but if you had to get info out of someone to save your family, how far would you go?


I know that that is not the question with the us and guant. Bay, but I just wondered what peoples feelings about the morals of this were, and, if their morals would change if their families safety was involved?

- I personally do not approve of the harsh interrogation 'torture' tactics, but as to how far I would go to protect my family, that is a hard one...

Why would you want to torture someone, for a phoney war?

The only thing that's happening here is, to get the people to accept the unacceptable, then use it on us....
