    for our "foreign policy?"  Does anyone who goes into any public place anywhere in America first sign a little card reading "I agree with and support any policy or action that has angered any person at any time and thus deserve to have my legs blown off?"

    Ridiculous on its face.  And utterly sick of this indefensible shit.  Our parents teach us that just because Little Davie punches in the face doesn't mean that we get to punch Little Davie in the face too, let alone allow us to punch someone else in the face simply because they happen to know Little Davie.

      the question isn't whether blowback is just.

      the question is whether blowback is a predictable result.

      To put the torture behind us is, inevitably, to put it in front of us.
