Donald Trump's pardons for US servicemen convicted of war crimes sends the wrong message to allies and enemies alike. If we condone cruelty and inhumanity we turn world opinion against ourselves. In the long run, there is no way to prevail in our struggles world wide unless we can win hearts and minds. We have to do more than just pay lip service to values like human rights, due process, rule of law, and respect for human life. We must demonstrate these values every day at home and abroad. Trump's actions will only serve to empower our enemies and undermine our security. IMHO.
