Is it okay to torture a soldier...??? I saw this thread "Terrorism and Torture" and wondered, if it would be okay if a country tortured an enemy soldier, who has infiltrated their country with the intentions to harm the country or it's inhabitants in some way? I'm not thinking of torture as a punishment but as a "tool" to get information, so the country could protect it self from the enemy. The most armies around the world are professional armies where the soldiers volunteer, so the soldiers should be aware that getting caught and tortured could be a risk like getting killed is. And yes, I know about the Geneva Convention... But what do you think about tortured being used as a tool, in the situation mentioned above??
