I cannot believe you would support torture of American soldiers
After reading the comments on this board about Trump's support of torture of captured terrorists, the majority opinion is that you don't care because the torture will be of terrorists, and either (A) they deserve it, or (B) we just might learn something useful after the torture, and maybe, just maybe, save lives down the road.
But, I would ask you to think of it from the American soldier's viewpoint. If the United States soldier, airman, sailor or marine is captured, what will be their fate? Will they suffer 'enhanced interrogation,' also known as torture, because their captors think they deserve it, they might learn something useful and maybe they can save lives on their side of the battle.
Because so few Americans are now serving in the military, and so few of the military are in front line combat missions, the number of people who understand this stark reality are few. Having been in that front line (admittedly a long time ago), I believed and still believe, that if we treat enemy combatants taken prisoner humanely, that the other side will be motivated to do the same.
If, however, we endorse torture as our routine practice, then we can expect that to happen to our servicemen and women, who are taken prisoner. All it takes is for a helicopter part to go bad, or an engine to go sour, and BAM, down you go behind enemy lines. It's what our servicemen and women face every time they undertake the mission. We citizens, sitting here in our peaceful homes at our computers, should think about those who risk their lives, and declare that we are NOT for torture, in the hopes that our nation will not be seen as barbaric, and therefore our servicemen and women will not be subjected to the same evil practices.

Our soldiers would be tortured and killed by Muslim terrorists if the opportunity arose whether we torture terrorists or not.

They would anyway. Regardless of what the US does. That's why they receive SERE training.

Maybe you haven't noticed, but there's videos of Americans being savagely murdered on camera by having their throats cut after being taken "prisoner" by "religion of peace" members. I think achmed can handle a little water boarding to find out where his boss is.

So an ISIS terrorist is the same as a US soldier? or any soldier for that matter.

Ok I see youre apologetic, pro radical Islam.

Bro, they would torture you or me irregardless.

I carried a frag on my vest throughout my entire deployment because I refused to be taken alive.

They will kill us only for the simple fact we're the Infidel.

This has to be false. I never saw pictures of the dead body of Ambassador Stevens after brutal torture and murder.

Should we torture uniformed military combatants from other nations? No.

Isis? I don't think that's the same.
