I’ve had great hopes for President Donald Trump, our new president. Unfortunately, he authorized his first murders and a civilian girl was a victim.
Given such power and surrounded by so many warmongers, who but a totally righteous man or women can withstand the temptation to murder?
I had actually sent in a message to greatagain.gov begging Trump to refrain from murdering. Christianity teaches that Satan entices men to murder. Obama yielded to temptation his first week and sent in agents to kill pirates. Once he committed that first murder, Obama couldn’t stop. Not only did his administration drop tens of thousands of bombs, he met weekly to review his assassination list.
The new thing now seems to be to get a newly elected president to murder during his first week.
When presidents murder civilians, it is considered regrettable, collateral damage and not a war crime. The office of the President guarantees the right to mass murder without penalty.
Nobody should be allowed to murder. The notion that government is justified to assassinate is evil and false.
The Mormon Church teaches there is no repentance for murder because one of the steps of repentance requires the sinner to restore that which was lost as a result of his or her sin. How can a murderer restore the life of a murdered victim? I am sure President Trump hoped there would be no civilian causalities but that is the risk a president takes when authorizing assassination missions.
Why does the United States feel justified to send Navy Seals into Yemen?
Hopefully, President Trump will feel guilty and end assignations, unconstitutional wars, bombing, empire building, bring the troops home and focus on rebuilding America.
