President Trump would Stay in Iraq & Take their Oil
Donald Trump, America’s most famous businessman and a possible 2012 Republican presidential candidate, laid out his Iraq strategy on Fox News. A guest on the top-rated O’Reilly Factor, Trump told host Bill O’Reilly that the US should stay in Iraq and take their oil.
“In the old days when you had wars, you win, right?” he said. “You win. To the victor belonged the spoils. So when we go to Iraq, we spend $1.4 trillion so far and thousands of lives are lost, right? … And we’re going to leave and 15 minutes after we leave, Iran is going to go into Iraq.”
What would President Trump do differently than Bush and Obama? “You stay and protect the oil and you take the oil and you take whatever is necessary for them and you take what’s necessary for us and we pay our self back $1.5 trillion or more. We take care of Britain, we take care of other countries that helped us and we don’t be so stupid.”
Trump continued: “You look at wars over the years… A country goes in, they conquer and they stay. We go in, we conquer and then we leave. And we hand it to people that we don’t even know. Now, who are the people that are going to be running Iraq? The person that hates the United States the most will be running Iraq. So, in a nutshell, we go in, we take over the second largest oil fields and we stay.”
Just what the American people want, a re-escalation of a war that’s drained our treasury and claimed the lives of over 5,000 of our young men and women in uniform, not to mention more than 100,000 Iraqis.
The Donald hasn’t exactly been displaying the type of wisdom one would hope to associate with a presidential candidate. He’s thrown his lot in with the “birthers,” that idiotic movement of Tea Party types who deny or disbelieve that President Obama was born in the United States and thus eligible to be President. Even Fox News’ Glenn Beck, cable news’ high priest of idiocy, says he’s “uncomfortable” with Trump’s birther blabber. And now this. Good luck choosing your man (or woman), Republicans; the current field of contenders almost makes George W. Bush look good!
