for living in the UK and where there is no torture
I just witnessed the most horrendous video showing some poor guys fingers get cut off and it really does reinforce the idea that these occurances happen on a much larger scale. The fact that these people actually film these videos and put them on the net!
will this ever stop?
Our freedom is indeed a precious thing, and it did not come cheap.
A tremendous blood cost was incurred in many battles to defend our freedom, most notably against the Spanish Armada, Napolean and in the two World Wars.
Thw West must use all of the tools at it's disposal to continue to spread democracy and freedom around the word even though it sometimes requires the blood of brave men to water the tree of liberty (to paraprase Abraham Lincoln).
Which country was this in? And I am glad to be British, proud as well.
I'm glad I live in this country too.
I would just like to point out, that outside of the UK/USA and any other far west country, people DO lead normal, enjoyable lives, I know this for a fact because I have met many many people whilst traveling.
From what I can see, many people here think that all non-western countries are a terrible place to live in. Though this may apply to some, it must also be considered and acknowledges that even in war torn countries, people still do lead normal, healthy, enjoyable lives.
