Radio Host Waterboarded -- Hilarity Doesn't Ensue

5/23/2009 2:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

The torture method called waterboarding -- which is meant to simulate drowning -- sucks so much, the average person can only endure it for a few seconds... as demonstrated here by brave Chicago radio host Mancow.



Bottom line -- torture sucks.

The world is going to hell.    

I wonder if you far left loonies will be so upset about waterboading when the next terrorist attack hits?
Apparently you whack jobs have forgotten all of the people killed on 9-11. Regardless of what the Obamanation wants to call it, we ARE in a war. You don't fight with one hand tied behind your back. Quit being such wussies and realize that we have to stop these terrorists by any means necessary.

Dirk Dowanna-Her - if the data you get from the technique has been proven to yield little value, it's pointless. Simply call it revenge, or better yet torture.. Why don't republican's want to call things what they are? Lets drop the fancy terms and call it what it is. This is what's killing the party, a bunch of hypocrites who are a laughing stock of the world, a bunch of self righteous bigoted do-gooders. It's okay, they should just call things as they see them and then let all judge them for their true beliefs and maybe their party would have a chance of survival. Latest pew poll shows the number of folks calling themselves

Republicans - 23%
Democratic - 35%
Independent - 36%

The data that's been gathered from these techniques have been proven faulty, just look at Iraq now. I also chose to believe McCain and others how have actually been tortured via this technique or even Jesse Ventura who recently on Larry King Live spoke about being water boarded during his marine corp training days. He is also a vocal advocate AGAINST this and even suggested that Cheney try it before he so freely defines it as a successful policy decision.

Let's all just call it what it is, move on and let the rest of the world judge America's use of this technique BUT let's NOT make policy decisions from the data that's gathered from these techniques that ultimately puts our loved ones in harms way. And let's pray that any future American POW's, or terrorist captured prisoners, are not treated under the same " enhanced interrogation " techniques if captured.

Our Troops - calling you an idiot would be too easy. They don't call it torture because you pinkos would go nuts. You really think our enemies are treating us well? douchebag. And if a former wrestler doesn't like it then by all means we should all follow suit.

So far I've only heard those in the Bush administration who have NEVER EVER been water boarded, OR even held captive, tortured or otherwise for that matter, support it. I've heard McCain who was tortured for 7yrs that included water boarding come about against it. Hmm, who do you listen to? Who do you think has the best information on what it's like to be water boarded and what type of VALID information can be obtained? Jesse Ventura also went through this during SEAL training and confirms McCains sentiments. So we have those who have gone through the exp. and those who have not and are just talking suits and who used data gathered from the use of the technique to get us in an 8yr war against a country that had nothing to do with 9-11. Are you kidding me?? Even after 1 Trillion tax dollars went to fight the wrong country. Al Qaeda is alive and well in Pakistan and Afghanistan.

The losers on here who are obviously too stupid to see it and instead chose to believe 2 Washington DC cowards in suits who have never gone through the “enhanced interrogation” process over 2 war heroes who have actually gone through this, and 1 of whom who was tortured for 7 years under the very “enhanced interrogation” technique. Keep drinking the cool-aid weaklings. … LOL

Why do you thin they calt TORTURE YOU MORON! And if your child or spouse was about to die & the only way you could get the info in a short time frame YOU & all these other anti torture floks would be troturing fools, and I bet it would even be worse than waterboarding. And if you say you would not and just let your children or spouse die then I am gald I am not in your family.

LOL..

Morons.. they're going to tell ya what you want to hear.. Ya think it's confessional time for these people? LOL LOL If it's so successful, and not considered torture - but only an enhanced interrogation technique, why don't we use it on our own people when police are interrogating suspects in crimes here in the US? Do ya think forced confessions would hold up and would really yield the "right answer?" Haha.. Um, just basic human behavior when under distress morons. It's pointless. Get an education hill-billies, seriously. You're the reason this country is in the shape it's in now, but rest assured, the Democrats are turning it around so you'll soon be reaping the benefits just like under Clinton ;)

Do unto others....
Flying our people into a building, hold them hostage in another country. If every country went by the same 'non-torture' rules (Geneva Conventions) then it would be a different story. I have an idea...let's negotiate with all the terrorists and it will fix everything.

To those that say if it saves lives do it. Well, it didnt. And if we reduce ourselves to torture then we are no different than our enemies. Norally, we have an advanatge, so why prove it when they call America the Great Satan. Its like when narrow-minded white dudes prove they are born bigots!
