Your president said this, while speaking in Abu Dhabi recently:
“Iran’s actions threaten the security of nations everywhere. So the United States is strengthening our longstanding security commitments with our friends in the Gulf and rallying friends around the world to confront this danger before it is too late.
Iran is today the world’s leading state sponsor of terror. It sends hundreds of millions of dollars to extremists around the world while its own people face repression and economic hardship at home.”
In other words, “I’ll make you a deal. We’ll move the cash cow from Iraq to Iran, okay?” For my money, you can replace “Iran” in the above statements with “United States.” Try reading it that way and tell me what you think.
