ethics of torture

we are no longer in ideas
we are no longer dealing with principles
it is war
can we go there?
everything was pregnant
and at the same time
even though we might have to kill some
where do we stop?
shall we accept this
in some cases
logic that consists of we could do it
you kidnap, we kidnap;
you mistreat, we mistreat;
you torture, we torture?
that was permitted
it is that what justifies?
it is a real question to free somebody
real life perhaps
in order to free somebody
i’m not saying,
i’m not saying that they made a mistake
because it was appropriate to do it
if it was necessary to attack a certain number of people
it was absolutely necessary to save and to be saved
many times they are the people we talk to first
the families legitimately
for the sake of that it was necessary to do that
for those that were kidnapped
that was going to be born
i don’t know i am lost
because sometimes i don’t know where you have to stop
where you have to put on the brakes
what is acceptable and what is unacceptable?
if my daughter were kidnapped there would be no limit
i tell you, I tell you,
there would be no limit to torture
physically attack them
threatening them and torturing them
you understand!
