Donald Trump on waterboarding: ‘If it doesn’t work,they deserve it anyway.’

People who believe torture is alright are not allowed to say a word when one of our captured soldiers in the future is water boarded. America has lost its moral leadership in the world when a political leader like Trump and millions of people in our nation, claim torture is alright.
The next time enthusiasts of lawlessness see a US soldier tortured to death, shut thy mouths. When the United States claims torture is alright, lesser countries will do even worse. We lead, they follow. If horrendous things happen to our soldiers, you are partially at fault.
At least the Germans have admitted their errors and have regained their honor by pursuing their War Criminals to this very day. Honor and respect to Germany. Disrespect and dishonor to America for what this nation did during the Bush/Cheney years.
Some of you claim the world does not respect America because of Obama. You could not be more wrong. If anything, the world condemns Obama for not throwing Bush, Cheney, commanding generals, common soldiers and CIA operatives in jail for War Crimes. America committed those crimes, then congratulated their criminals for breaking the law. Republicans made heroes out of War Criminals.
The world does not respect America because we have not admitted our errors. At the same time leading Presidential contenders claim they would torture again and millions of Americans cheer him. The United States executed Japanese soldiers for waterboarding our troops after WWII.
The United States led the world with the Geneva Conventions forbidding torture. We led the world because we were better people than what exists within our shores today. The Republican Party has denigrated and insulted the people of America when not a single Republican condemns the words of Donald Trump.
Silence is acceptance and it would appear Republicans are nothing more than a bunch of criminals wanting to lead our nation. Republicans are the reason America is not respected in the world anymore. Armed to the teeth and potentially led by maniacs, the world has much to fear.
