Defending Syria Pullout, Trump Says U.S. Should Never Have Been Involved in ‚Stupid‘ Mideast Wars

Trump’s call for ending U.S. military involvement in the Middle East and bringing the troops home was a feature of his presidential campaign, but it flies in the face of many decades of bipartisan American policy, even as the Trump administration and its immediate predecessor have tried to give additional attention to what they see as long-term security threats elsewhere, including from China and Russia.

Fighting between various groups that has been going on for hundreds of years. USA should never have been in Middle East. Moved our 50 soldiers out. Turkey MUST take over captured ISIS fighters that Europe refused to have returned. The stupid endless wars, for us, are ending!

Furious Donald Trump calls going into the Middle East ‚the worst decision ever made‘ and demands Turkey take responsibility for captured ISIS fighters – opening way for Erdogan’s forces to move into Kurdish Syria

Trump suggested that Republican predecessor George W. Bush, whose military invaded Iraq based on bad intelligence, was responsible for entangling the United States in a regional quagmire that has resulted in more 50,000 American casualties since 2001.

‚We went to war under a false & now disproven premise, WEAPONS OF MASS DESTRUCTION. There were NONE! Now we are slowly & carefully bringing our great soldiers & military home. Our focus is on the BIG PICTURE! THE USA IS GREATER THAN EVER BEFORE!‘ he proclaimed.

Trump said that religious clashes in the Middle East will never be resolved by an American military presence.

Iran seeking to expand military program to weapons of mass destruction: German intelligence

(28.05.2019)

Fox News obtained a May 2019 intelligence document from the state of Bavaria detailing Iran’s nefarious weapons activities in the southern German state during the previous year.

Iran is a „risk country“ that is „making efforts to expand its conventional arsenal of weapons with weapons of mass destruction,“ wrote the Bavarian Office for the Protection of the Constitution in its intelligence report.

The Bavarian agency is the rough equivalent of the FBI without arrest powers.

The Burning Cathedral and the Dead Turtle

Craig Murray connected the event to imperialism: “France is a country which has spent hundreds of billions of euros on nuclear Weapons of Mass Destruction, and hundreds of billions of euros on other military capabilities. France possesses the technological capability to utterly flatten a city the size of Paris in minutes. Yet it does not possess the technological capability to prevent one of its greatest buildings from being destroyed by fire.”

Dem Rep. Schakowsky on Netanyahu Speech: „An Effort To Stampede The U.S. Into War Again“

(3.März 2015) REP. JAN SCHAKOWSKY: [Netanyahu] made the same argument over the Iraq War, that it was time for the United States to not pay attention to any world opinion, but just to go it alone. What I heard today, felt to me like an effort to stampede the United States into war once again.

Dem Rep. Yarmuth: Netanyahu „Speech Was Straight Out Of Cheney Playbook,“ „Fearmongering At Its Ultimate“

(3.März 2015) „And I also resent the fact that he was telling us how to negotiate when the administration and their representatives have been at this for two years now with the cooperation, participation of five other major nations in the world. This speech was straight out of the Dick Cheney playbook. It was fearmongerring at its ultimate. Phrases like essentially saying nuclear war is inevitable if this deal were to be accepted, phrases like this would pave the way to Iran having a nuclear bomb, these are things that I think are, again, part of what Dick Cheney would have done and did. This has been the Prime Minister’s pattern. He’s gone to the U.N. and done the same thing. „
