Remember all the lies we were told about the U.S. having to be in the Middle East to spread democracy, stop terrorism, and take out evil dictators like Saddam Hussein? Some people saw through that BS and insisted that the U.S. was actually in the Middle East to ensure access to the oil there, but even that is not true. The U.S. has plenty of oil in its own backyard and actually lost concessions in Iraq.
So why exactly have Americans been bled dry through endless wars in the Middle East? Why have many Americans lost their lives or come home with PTSD and committed suicide? Why have countless people living in the Middle East lost their homes, suffered untold hardships, and been murdered because of the American war machine occupying their countries?
BECAUSE OF ISRAEL!
Yes, that is right. President Trump has confirmed that the U.S. is in the Middle East because of Israel, our greatest ally in the whole wide world. It has nothing to do with American interests whatsoever!
He said this during a rally in Winston-Salem, N.C. on Sept. 8, while talking about America’s supposed energy independence, which he contends is threatened by a Biden presidency. At minute 47:
I like being energy independent, don’t you? I’m sure that most of you noticed when you go to fill up your tank in your car, oftentimes it’s below two dollars. You say how the hell did this happen? Thank you President Trump! Look at your electric bills and everything else– these guys, your electric would go up four, five, six times. The Green New Deal it’s called the Green New Nightmare. While I’m president, America will remain the number one producer of oil and natural gas in the world. We will remain energy independent. It should be for many many years to come. The fact is, we don’t have to be in the Middle East, other than we want to protect Israel. We’ve been very good to Israel. Other than that, we don’t have to be in the Middle East. You know there was a time we needed desperately oil, we don’t need that anymore. We have more than they do, isn’t that nice? After years of rebuilding other countries, we are finally building our country.
