Why Can’t We?

Sadly, this was inevitable. UK Police Face ‘Waterboard’ Claim;

“[O]fficers had allegedly used brutal techniques, including forcing suspects’ heads into buckets of water to induce the sensation of being drowned…”

And, as inevitable as this was, I’ll assume the next step, after the rampant use of torture by the US, being this, was unavoidable. If they can do it, why can’t we?
