Trump is bringing about Middle East peace, but naturally not being given credit for it

15 Sep

(Except for by some Norwegian.)

Did anyone ever think Muslim Middle Eastern nations would ever recognize Israel?

Or that it would be an American president that would facilitate such?

    I suppose that is good, but what about America? You know, that country of which he ostensibly is President? How about pulling back some of that foreign aid given to that region, and spreading it around home? Now that they all have peace, they should not need that aid.

      I know.

      As you know, he’s been greatly opposed by the Deep State, who have done their darnedest to thwart his every move and alas have been highly successful in so doing. And he made the mistake of trying to work within the system instead of picking only people outside of it.

      But for all that, he’s managed to accomplish some things. And this is one good thing.

        When things go hot in the US after the election I’m hope Trump names General Flynn Supreme Commander of all Constitutionalist American forces.

    He has done an undeniably good thing. It does play to his strength. He knows how to put together a deal and it will save the US money and the Middle East will suffer less.
    Of course the Deep State is going to object. “Not invented here.” Also, this has been the Holy Grail of every administration since 1967.

      That’s just it – if America’s client states can be at peace with each other instead of bickering, it will save the empire money, and will generate goodwill, hopefully.

        If the area is at peace, then business that is not dependent on war will thrive. That is a good thing.

        Yes, and so no wonder the warmongers and weapons firms hate it.

    (((They))) don’t want peace or stability in the Middle East and will go to unimaginable extremes to prevent both. Matter o’ fact, the Likudnik warhawks will go apoplectic in publicly calling for Trump’s head on a platter for daring to deprive the Zionists of a reason for endless war against … well, everybody in the Middle East.

    Particularly interesting is how this will lead to further isolation of Iran in the region – mutual hatred of Israel was about the only thing they agreed with their Sunni neighbors on.

      Interesting, indeed!

    Riyadh and Tel Aviv have been working together against Iran for a few years now. The reason no one is giving Trump credit is because this isn’t a) his doing or b) going to do anything but set up the war Israel has been jockeying for with Iran, whom the Saudis hate far more than the Israelis.

      Alas… I do get that Trump is in the pocket of Israel, foreign-policy wise, because of the too-powerful influence of his son-in-law Jared Kushner…

        I’m actually willing to give Trump a little credit here and say that it’s pretty highly likely he just had nothing at all to do with this. Middle East policy is being pursued on a much longer timeline than American politicians are capable of thinking.

        As evidence of this, let me offer the following: part of the encirclement of Iran required cooperation from South Asian countries, where Israel has absolutely no real pull and the US was entirely in charge. Under Bush II, the US courted Pakistan, which ended in utter failure. Under Obama and Trump, the US has attempted to grow closer to India, but flubbed the dance there and ended up stepping on feet. Now Trump is trying to pull out of Afghanistan, a move which makes no sense if he’s doing what Israel wants and surrounding Iran.

        If a Riyadh-Tel Aviv-Washington Axis solidifies, it’s mostly because of Tel Aviv, not Washington. The US is the junior partner. Withdrawal of support from the Kurds suggests a desire to bring Ankara into the mix as well, but again this seems to be left in US hands and is therefore faltering.

        You’re talking about (((Kushner))), right?
