(Tea Party PAC) – One of the biggest goals our country and many others around the globe have been working toward and praying for is to see peace in the war torn nations located in the Middle East. Many individuals have thought such an endeavor to be a total waste of time, a pipe dream that has no foundation in reality.
These folks tend to think things in that part of the world are just too far gone to be repaired. It’s a lost cause.
However, President Trump doesn’t seem to think so. In fact, he’s actually made some progress in making that very goal actually something attainable.
And he says we can achieve it without war and without losing.
President Donald Trump on Tuesday at an ABC News town hall promised peace in the Middle East without losing American soldiers in unwinnable wars.
President Trump celebrated the agreement between the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain, and Israel brokered by the United States to normalize relationships with Arab countries and Israel.
“I have numerous other countries in that region that are going to be signing very soon also,” he said. “You’ll have peace in the Middle East, and this is without war and without losing.”
Trump spoke about the deal during an ABC News town hall with George Stephanopolous on Tuesday night.
The president spoke about the difficulty of witnessing families waiting for the remains of slain soldiers returning from overseas at the military base in Dover, and he grew angry of the politicians who sent them to the Middle East.
“Going there was the worst decision in the history of our country,” Trump said. “We’ve spent $8 trillion and we’ve lost thousands of lives but really millions of lives because I view both sides.”
Trump reminded voters that Iraq and Saddam Hussein did not knock down the World Trade Center and conduct the 9/11 attacks.
“They made a mistake,” Trump said about the decision to go to war in the Middle East.
The president added that he rarely met a soldier who agreed with the decision to invade places like Iraq.
“It was the worst mistake, the most costly mistake, in the history of our country going into the Middle East,” he said.
There are a lot of conservatives out there who totally agree with Trump about going into Iraq back in the early 2000s. And honestly, he’s probably right. That was a big mistake and not something we should have participated in, because what happened was the destabilizing of a country, leaving it wide open to be taken over by radical Islamic terrorists.
We see how that’s worked out for us, right?
Anyway, past mistakes aside, President Trump has proven that he most definitely can get results that others didn’t think was possible when it comes to negotiating with folks in the Middle East. If he says we can have peace there without war, well, that’s a worthy goal to pursue. And we have reason to believe it’s possible with the deals Trump has helped facilitate thus far.
