German daily Die Tageszeitung showed no photoshopping restraint on its Wednesday front page, in reaction to Donald Trump's decision to send more troops to Afghanistan.
With "Trumbo" — a portmanteau neologism combining the U.S. president's name and fictional U.S. Army Special Forces soldier John Rambo— Die Tageszeitung spoofed the poster for the third installment of the Rambo series, released in 1988. Directed by Peter MacDonald, the movie follows the title character, played by Sylvester Stallone, on a mission to Afghanistan.
On Monday, Trump, in an apparent policy reversal, spoke against a withdrawal of U.S. troops from the country, instead stating that an additional 5,000 soldiers were to join the 8,500 men already stationed in the country. Afghanistan Reloaded, as the German daily suggests?
