Donald Trump pardons two war criminals and the country shrugs but the world is watching

West Pointer and journalist Lucian K. Truscott IV, writes:

‘War crimes are unique. Only during a war are you empowered to legally kill other people and given the weapons necessary to kill by the state. But the cases of the soldiers and sailors charged with war crimes have become just another norm for Trump to violate. This time, he has pardoned a murderer, something that no president has ever done. Enemies will remember these things. They will fight harder. They will kill more Americans.

We’ll be paying for Trump and his own war crimes for a very, very long time….’
