The only torture I approve of is the torturing they did to the nazis soldiers captured during WW2. For example, they took them out to ball games and fancy dinners. Keeping up that sort of behavior they eventually cracked and started talking.

Now now... we did horrible things too. In 1974 we took black people off the street and painted kitties or hearts on their hands, telling them to love and enjoy life. We painted bunnies on the children... so much senseless suffering. It took decades before blacks could even step foot in a carnival. Remember the face-painting riots in Denver? When they started throwing the hard candy... you could see the fear in people's eyes. Some people called it 'Braching' which aggrivated the Chinese, sense the word Brachs in mandarin means 'To pro-rate (my) rent' which is almost considered a sin to them. It's taught that when you use the word Brachs or the phonetic term for hard candy in mandarin ('ow') that you point your feet away from the person you're speaking to as a sign of respect showing that "this message of hard candy is not meant for you."

It's even more complicated for the Japanese since hard candy can also mean a material used to make boats or sexual preference among males.
