A society where torture is accepted lacks empathy and is a sick society. Torture is not subjective. That's intellectual blabla. When you waterboard or force feed someone through the anus everybody knows that that's torture. Full stop.
The point of torture is not to act on the first thing a person says. Anyone will say anything under torture. You check the info and redo the torture. They will give up the truth eventually. And the truth can save a lot of lives.
and what if you torture a person who knows nothing or is innocent? The people in Guantanamo never got a trial. You can easily be mistaken for someone else. By committing torture you are a war criminal yourself.
