Deflection... your asking questions that have nothing to do with what I said...
My point was that people are using the words of a leader that is actually bad to say our leader is bad. People are so he'll bent on bashing trump that they support the words of someone who condones execution of dissidents. That's cool though because we all hate America right?
I swore an oath to defend the constitution, not a specific person. The president regardless of who it is should be respected. I wasn't involved in the other thread you posted so I'm not exactly sure what that has to do with me.

If true the officer responsible for that should be relieved of his duties. Thanks to the Ayatollah for bringing that to wider attention.
What if there was sound reasoning for it? How about finding out if:
a) It is true
b) there was a good cause for it
I'll admit that there are not a lot of scenarios where a 5 year old should be handcuffed, but I wasn't there.

Neither country has any moral high ground. Let's not pretend that we care about human rights when we still do things like collateral damage, indefinite detention, and constant wars/proxy wars/regime changes. And not only is Gitmo still open, but our current President has even pledged to bring back waterboarding "and a hell of a lot more".
Though it's a bit odd that you mention "a flood of migrants at their door steps" as a part of your argument when Trump & his allies want to end that very migration at our door steps. I'm not sure what point you're trying to make with that one?

Imagine that, a transparent president that continues to follow through on his promises to his supporters.
So where are his tax returns like he promised.... so not so transparent at all!

This was why the CIA was originally designed for. Assasination of people like Irans supreme leader.
The 1953 Iranian coup d'état, known in Iran as the 28 Mordad coup (Persian: کودتای ۲۸ مرداد), was the overthrow of the democratically elected Prime Minister Mohammad Mosaddegh in favour of strengthening the monarchical rule of Mohammad Reza Pahlavi on 19 August 1953, orchestrated by the United Kingdom (under the name "Operation Boot") and the United States (under the name TPAJAX Project, or "Operation Ajax").

You know its a bad thing when even our 'enemies' weigh in.
