larry--not being an ideologue--i usually try to keep informed about both sides of an argument--of course being of the "heads on pikes" school of total war i.e., going medieval on islamic medievalists seems somehow symmetrically appropriate--i find the "torture" memo writers a little light in their loafers--but i always take the long historical amnesiac view instead of the current legalistic footnoted rationale-- being of a mind that history could care less about the goody two-shoes details of victory-- only that it occurred--kind of like a curtis lemay "bombs over tokyo" approach is usually what works for me--i like my enemies dead or demoralized--
