So, Trump visits with the leadership of Saudi Arabia and is celebrated at a big conference in Riyadh. Of course, Trump will give his blessing to Saudi Arabia for whatever punishment they wish to give to Qatr for promoting democracy in the region. Why not? Trump doesn’t value freedom and democracy. He scorns the rule of law. He has no moral compass. So, what do we get? A blockade of Qatr, an almost certain prelude to war. Iran is only too willing to help lift the blockade, eh?
Ugh! This is what USA gets from choosing an idiot as fearless leader. They get to follow him to Hell and, perhaps not, back. How much chaos will the world undergo because there is a child with his hand on the button in the White House? Trump doesn’t care. He’ll be well cared for. He’s a draft-dodger and the grandson of a draft-dodger. It’s always someone else who has to suffer for Trump’s stupid choices.
UPDATE “US President Donald Trump has claimed credit for the pressure being placed on Qatar by Gulf neighbours who accuse it of supporting terrorism in the region.
He said his recent visit to Saudi Arabia was “already paying off” and the development might mark the “beginning of the end to the horror of terrorism”.”
Now Trump admits he betrayed the trust of an ally, Qatr, in the fight against terrorism. He sided with the Saudis who spent $billions funding “islamic” schools around the world where Al Qaida and ISIS felt welcome and were offered the youth of a whole generation to extreme views on everything islamic and east-west. Further, Trump makes no attempt to hide his Machiavellian intrigues. The guy’s a traitor to USA, and a wicked emissary to the world. Who can trust anything he says or does after these first few weeks in office? Who will trust the word of any POTUS for decades? He’s done the work of Putin and broken all pretence of right and justice in USAian ways. At the same time he’s put US military in harm’s way needlessly if this standoff descends into a shooting war with Qatr and Iran. What a thoughtless buffoon only interested in the size of his ego and bank account!
UPDATE – Saudi Arabia has demanded Qatr surrender to a long list of degrading demands, probably driving Qatr into the arms of Iran with some support from Turkey. Meanwhile, Trump fiddles while the Gulf burns.
