Torture should be allowed

The barbarity of torture as a means of interigation is well established, I have no quarrel with that and consider it a stipulation; However outlawing "torture" is an ignorant proposition. It is necessary, and indeed the only tool my enemies understand.

I agree with the stance proposed though not the logic. The reason torture ought to be allowed is the deterrence it will create. A country will be less likely to employ means of espionage if there is a risk that the employee will be tortured to the point of giving information away. This will chill the idea of illicit intelligence and make steps toward eliminating it entirely.

Ah yes, we should torture people.
