TRUMP VERSUS TRUMP ON WAR CRIMES

ANOTHER Trump FLIP FLOP!! Here’s What He’s Saying NOW About Torturing Terrorists!

Clearly, my hard-hitting expose of Trump’s idiocy in saying that the military would carry out every one of his commands to commit war crimes must have made a difference because he spun around so fast on the issue that his toupee ended up facing the wrong way.

He just released this statement to the Wall Street Journal:

Leading GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump said Friday he wouldn’t order the U.S. military to break international laws, addressing criticism from military and legal experts that his policies regarding torture and killing the family members of terrorists would violate the Geneva Convention.

Mr. Trump, in a statement to The Wall Street Journal, said he would “use every legal power that I have to stop these terrorist enemies. I do, however, understand that the United States is bound by laws and treaties and I will not order our military or other officials to violate those laws and will seek their advice on such matters. I will not order a military officer to disobey the law. It is clear that as president I will be bound by laws just like all Americans and I will meet those responsibilities.”

This appears to be a reversal from Thursday night’s GOP debate in Detroit, when Mr. Trump stood by earlier proposals to do things that were a “hell of a lot worse” than waterboarding terrorist suspects and also authorize the military to kill family members of terrorists.

“I’ve always been a leader,” he said Thursday night. “I’ve never had any problem leading people. If I say do it, they’re going to do it. That’s what leadership is all about.”

Well, that’s good. But it really makes you wonder what kind of leader this guy would be. He’s just telling the mob whatever they want to hear, and then when he realizes he’s saying really stupid crap, he flip flops on it, just as he has already with immigration yesterday night. How can you trust anything this guy says?

And what if he reverses course again, and puts our troops in legal and moral peril by giving them illegal orders? At least with George W. Bush, he honestly believed he was within the constraint of law in ordering waterboarding. It was only after Obama was elected that he approved their being prosecuted. But with Trump, he was openly advocating for orders that he knows are illegal.

Unbelievable.

    To wipe Terrorism, you must wipe the vengeful.

    The dirty secret of Syria, the needed killing of the innocent along with the guilty.

    It’s easy to sit upon the Throne of Morality, Pretending, Lying, Redfining, Wordsmthing, Lawyering ,Debating for the Mass News consumer.
    It’s a dirty business to win a war decisively.

    The last time the U.S. Won a War Decisively, WW2, a dirty war indeed. Dresden, Berlin, Hamburg, Tokyo, Nagasaki, etc etc.

    The Reality of Govt and Nations isn’t, Nice,Pretty,Fair or Moral…
    It just is.

    Why can’t A Luke Skywalker Nation defeat the Flinstones?

    Refusal to accept Reality. FACT!

    War is Dirty and Evil….Reality!

    We didn’t execute the families of Nazis or the Japanese when we captured them as punishment for the actions of their husbands/fathers. As a matter of fact (a word you seem to like to use) we executed people at Nuremberg and Tokyo for killing family members.

    He didn’t flip. Trump answered the corrupt media’s question months ago and said he had no issue with waterboarding and had no issue going further if we had to. But, he never said he would just go gun hoe and start torturing people all over! He only answered the media’s question. Then after the 100 rhino military leaders came out against him for the GOPe, he had to clarify for the dummies that he knew we had laws. But make no mistake that he has no issue using such tactics and would try to change the rules so he can do such tactics should they be necessary to crush the terrorist who is burning people alive, slicing off heads, raping and more all over the world. Sorry if some cupcakes can’t handle that. And as for killing the families, are you kidding me! Those families are part of the terrorism, and we need to worry about them. These people raise their children to be killers from birth!! The mothers believe it to be an honor to sacrifice their children for the cause of Allah, WAKE UP!
