O'Reilly: Stopping Int'l War Crimes Often Falls to America
In his Talking Points Memo, Bill O'Reilly said that because many global powers refuse to offer meaningful support to maintain world order, policing the world often falls to the United States.
O'Reilly said President Trump was forced to make a "gut-wrenching decision" to strike back against Syria for gassing its own people.
The strike on the Shayrat air base sent a message that America will hold war criminals accountable.
O'Reilly said that too often, Russia and China will not step up to the plate to aid the United States
He said that at this point, America cannot and should not declare war on North Korea, but added that if "loony dictator" Kim Jong-Un continues to violate international law, there may be justification for action.
Kim routinely commits human rights violations and his ruling family has continued to engage in sabre-rattling against the United States.
O'Reilly said there is also cause for concern in Africa, where ISIS surrogate Boko Haram has killed thousands of people, often using children as suicide bombers.
"Trump, as leader of the free world, has his hands full," O'Reilly said.
