Personally, I'm not for the death penalty, nor am I for abortion, however I am pro sterilization of many, especially those who pop out addicted babies and/or who have several by different males (not real men) and don't or can't take care of them, or who would strap a bomb to them or let them starve to death, or who would allow an adult male with AIDS to have sex with their young virgin daughters, in hopes of curing his AIDS (as is frequently happening in Africa; even to infants and toddlers), or who, like many Cambodian mothers, allow their 6 year olds to be used for sex for $30/night and have their teenage sons do the pimping. Yes, these sorts I would sterilize instantly, but not kill.
As far as torturing goes, if a known Al Qaeda operative was caught, I would have no problem if he were tortured for information that would lead to the downfall of a terrorist attack.
We can try to be acceptible to our allies, but we must always keep in mind how much of their dirty work we have done, especially France, as in Vietnam and WWII, and they still hate us! I believe it's an ego thing with them. With others, if they are rogue nations, fearing us is a good thing. Europe has been plagued with terrorist attacks for many years, maybe if they would have done something bold at the time, the terror cells would not have been able to multiply.

Teach the lessons you have learned. Your understanding has been given, not only for yourself, but to guide a sore and tired world to a place of rest in a new consciousness.
