    Trump: U.S. is in Middle East ‘to protect Israel’ not for oil

    Trillions spent & liver lost, to protect the D&R party's Chosen Nation . We need a 2nd party to protect US Americans, IMO.

    U.S. is in Middle East ‘to protect Israel’ not for oil, Trump says


    Trump speaks in Winston-Salem, NC, Sept. 8, 2020. Screenshot from NBC news video.

    Four days ago, Donald Trump said the U.S. isn’t involved in the Middle East for oil, but because we “want to protect Israel.” The comments have gone all but unreported in the mainstream press.

    Trump made the comment during a rally in Winston-Salem, N.C. on Sept. 8, when he was bragging about America’s energy independence, which he said Joe Biden
    would undermine if he gets the White House (minute 47):

    I like being energy independent, don’t you? I’m sure that most of you noticed when you go to fill up your tank in your car, oftentimes it’s below two dollars. You say how the hell did this happen? Thank you President Trump! Look at your electric bills and everything else– these guys, your electric would go up four, five, six times. The Green New Deal it’s called the Green New Nightmare. While I’m president, America will remain the number one producer of oil and natural gas in the world. We will remain energy independent. It should be for many many years to come. The fact is, we don’t have to be in the Middle East, other than we want to protect Israel. We’ve been very good to Israel. Other than that, we don’t have to be in the Middle East. You know there was a time we needed desperately oil, we don’t need that anymore. We have more than they do, isn’t that nice? After years of rebuilding other countries, we are finally building our country.

    The American Conservative’s Barbara Boland is the only reporter who seems to have picked up Trump’s remarks. No one else cares, evidently.

    Do you remember all the arguments about Why are we engaged in so many conflicts in the Middle East? And why we are going to war in Iraq?

    Then maybe he should start pulling out all of our troops out of the ME when he should have done that 3 years ago.

    He is pulling the troops out and he is making peace deals between Israel and its neighbors to remove the excuse that people use to have us defend them.

    FORT BRAGG, N.C. (AP) —
    When his mandatory two-week quarantine ended last Friday, Clyde made the short drive to Fort Bragg and boarded a plane for a nine-month deployment in the Middle East.
    The 34-year-old is among 2,200 paratroopers assigned to the 82nd Airborne Division’s 2nd Brigade Combat Team deploying to Iraq and Syria.

    Analysts of military policy also note that even as Mr. Trump has withdrawn several thousand troops from Iraq and Afghanistan, he has ordered nearly twice that many, about 14,000 forces, to the Persian Gulf region in the past year or so in response to Iranian attacks and provocations.
    At any given time, 45,000 to 65,000 American troops are in the region, spread out between Jordan and Oman, assigned to operate airfields, run key headquarters, sail warships and fly warplanes, and stage for deployments to places such as Iraq and Afghanistan.

    ^this.

    Another excuse management example:
    He just signed largest military budget and big gummit spending in history and almost overnight took national debt to $26 Trillion to remove the excuse that Dems use to push progressive socialism.

    Peace in the middle east that needs to be made is between the Jews/Sunni and the Shia, Palestinians vs Jews. The jews have always been allied with the Sunnis seeing as they have a common enemy in the Shia and Iran.

    He is just building up a common allies to keep the flames of war burning in the middle east.

    Punishing Syria in turn makes it easier for Israel to attack Syria and in the process protect Israel. Makes sense now?
