    On an interview at ABC with George Stephanopolis, our Mr. Trump wants to re-introduce waterboarding. In the meantime the Dutch news reported that a whole stack of torture pictures were released/obtained about the behavior of our troops in Iraq. The statement also said that there are a huge amount of pictures which they have not released yet, which seem even more cruel than anything.

    Trumps argument is; they did chop off heads so we can do whatever we like with any ISIS or terrorist. So lets be as barbaric as them with a bible in our hand. Wow.

    I think he is forgetting that we murdered and tortured hundreds of thousands Iraqi's including women and children with our invasion, in a country which never did us any harm. Abu Graibe prison pictures show enough as well. I can fully imagine that people there want revenge, we asked for it.

    How can any "god" if it would exist, ever approve of such a guy for President??? I'm going to throw up,what a country.

    It's a popular position also. Because most Americans don't see Muslims as anything but terrorists, they're certainly not seen as people let alone good people. Anything you approve of doing should come with the expectation that it could / would be done to your people as well. Trump wants to stop Muslim immigration and allow enhanced torture while his poll numbers continue to rise.

    You mis-titled the thread, Dutch. It should be: trump IS torture.

    There still is not an accurate figure of how many Panamanians were killed in order to arrest one man, Noriega. Thousands?

    Trumps latest "foreign policy" brainwave; He wants China to get rid of North Korea's Kim etc. He will force them to do that.

    Sure why not "meddle" some more in the world; I guess we will never learn how our middle east policies have worked.
