    We should tickle their balls until their weapon of mass destruction gets filled with blood and explodes.

    They should have no rights - chop off penis and cook and make them eat.

    In bun, with cheese, and extra bacon.

    A person suspected of being a terrorist should be arrested, charged and tried like every other suspected criminal. They should not be tortured.

    Also please define terrorist.

    Without even contemplating the horrific implications of allowing your state to torture whoever it likes, and the moral issues thereof, torture won't always produce reliable results and aids enemy recruitment. Its a terrible idea.

    I've never seen any reliable evidence for this much touted 'fact'.

    Surely, if this were the case, the police forces, intelligence agencies and militaries that use it will know this better than the left-wing, and presumably can work around it.

    Further, if we assume that asking people questions under torture doesn't work, why do we assume that asking people questions not under torture works any better?

    The previous posters who said yes are absolute savages. No to torture in all cases.

    You do realise that people confess to anything just to stop the pain right? And even if this was not the case, I would still fully abhor this barbarous act.

    I'm not sure what you mean by 'work around it'. If it doesn't work, it doesn't work...

    To your final point, why is that even relevant? If torture doesn't work, it's irrelevant that not torturing also doesn't work. We may as well proceed in the manner that's least horrible and immoral. That is, not torturing.

    Indeed - i doubt any reliable evidence can exist in such an area to prove it one way or another. I don't necessarily submit to the view that 'the intelligence forces do it so it must be the best thing for us' view though either.

    I suppose the point is that its not a case of 'torture and get accurate, up to date information' - its more complicated than that. I'll edit my post accordingly.
