Torture and new Torture Lite!

I recently read a print article that described wrapping prisoners in an Israeli flag and pretending to relieve oneself on the Koran as "torture". I hereby declare the word "torture" to be meaningless. When one hear's the word, "torture", one immediately asks, "What happened?" When the Abu Ghraib scandal broke, I was shocked by how unshocking the images were. When I think of torture, I think of things such as these. Now pretended desecration is torture. At the rate we're going, three years from now, failure to provide therapists and Prozac will be described as torture.
