You throw mud, you lose ground. President Trump's own "apology tour" is having unintended consequences.
In the first place, someone who doesn't understand the difference between U.S. wars in which we don't "invade" other countries to take them over like Putin's invasions (Georgia, Ukraine) has no understanding of basic morality.
Second, someone who doesn't understand the difference between willful policy to kill and a "mistake" in policy does not have adult intelligence.
So, according to President Trump the U.S. and its leaders are just as bad as Putin and other leaders (ISIS?) who murder people who oppose them because of the fatalities in the U.S. war in Iraq (which Trump opposed). Who was the main American leader in the Iraq War? President George W. Bush.
As absurd as President Obama's claims of American failures were, he never implied George W. Bush was a "killer". The far left did, but Obama didn't. Now Trump has clearly joined the far left critique. Code Pink should be ecstatic.
Where are the conservatives who are outraged? There are only a few. Most have stomped on their principles because Trump isn't Hillary. Pathetic.
Well, let's take the Trump critique and apply it to Trump too.
Trump's first ordered military raid resulted in civilians and children killed and a Navy Seal Chief Petty Officer William Owens as well as three U.S. commandos wounded. So, does that make Trump a "killer" like Putin and ISIS, or to reach back into history a bit, Hitler and Stalin?
No. At least not for anyone who understands that purposeful killing is different than killing by "mistake".
But, there still are policy consequences. Because of Trump's military mistake, Yemen has now "withdrawn permission for the United States to run Special Operations ground missions against suspected terrorist groups in [Yemen]". So, expect more people to be "killed" as terrorist groups have more freedom to recruit, train and attack because of this "mistake".
It seems President Trump has now joined his own list of American government "killers".
