Here is your daily reminder that Trump’s foreign policy is a joke:
“The world is a very dangerous place!
The country of Iran, as an example, is responsible for a bloody proxy war against Saudi Arabia in Yemen, trying to destabilize Iraq’s fragile attempt at democracy, supporting the terror group Hezbollah in Lebanon, propping up dictator Bashar Assad in Syria (who has killed millions of his own citizens), and much more. Likewise, the Iranians have killed many Americans and other innocent people throughout the Middle East. Iran states openly, and with great force, “Death to America!” and “Death to Israel!” Iran is considered “the world’s leading sponsor of terror.” …
That being said, we may never know all of the facts surrounding the murder of Mr. Jamal Khashoggi. In any case, our relationship is with the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. They have been a great ally in our very important fight against Iran. The United States intends to remain a steadfast partner of Saudi Arabia to ensure the interests of our country, Israel and all other partners in the region. It is our paramount goal to fully eliminate the threat of terrorism throughout the world!
I understand there are members of Congress who, for political or other reasons, would like to go in a different direction – and they are free to do so. I will consider whatever ideas are presented to me, but only if they are consistent with the absolute security and safety of America. After the United States, Saudi Arabia is the largest oil producing nation in the world. They have worked closely with us and have been very responsive to my requests to keeping oil prices at reasonable levels – so important for the world. As President of the United States I intend to ensure that, in a very dangerous world, America is pursuing its national interests and vigorously contesting countries that wish to do us harm. Very simply it is called America First!”
Do you remember how we started the year?
Assad was an “animal” who gassed his own people. We later attacked him again. John Bolton was screaming about regime change in Iran. Trump was calling out social media censorship … in Iran. Trump was tweeting about human rights abuses in Iran.
This is what Saudi Arabia had done to this Jamal Khashoggi journalist in October:
“Jamal Khashoggi had his fingers hacked off one by one by his torturers before he was decapitated and his body was dissolved in acid, according to horrific new reports.
The journalist was allegedly carved up with a bone saw while alive in a horrifying seven-minute execution carried out by a “hit squad” listening to music on headphones.
Evidence suggests the 59-year-old regime critic was tortured to death, dismembered and smuggled out of the Saudi consulate in Istanbul in an execution supervised by autopsy specialist Salah Muhammad al-Tubaiqi.
The Saudi “Dr Death” was seen in Istanbul while an agent with a bone-cutter tool was said to be part of a 15-strong kill team.
The team are alleged to have removed the dismembered body in 15 plastic bags before it was dissolved in acid, according to Turkish media reports. …”
Saudi Arabia is allied with our greatest ally Israel though, so … you know how that goes. In this case, we don’t give a shit about muh human rights because “America First.”
