On Sunday’s “60 Minutes,” Trump said: “You know, we’ve been fighting this war for 15 years. … We’ve spent $6 trillion in the Middle East, $6 trillion — we could have rebuilt our country twice. And you look at our roads and our bridges and our tunnels … and our airports are … obsolete.”
Yet the War Party has not had enough of war, not nearly.
They want to confront Vladimir Putin, somewhere, anywhere. They want to send U.S. troops to the eastern Baltic. They want to send weapons to Kiev to fight Russia in Donetsk, Luhansk and Crimea.
They want to establish a no-fly zone and shoot down Syrian and Russian planes that violate it, acts of war Congress never authorized.
Assad: Trump would be a 'natural ally' if he follows through on fighting terrorism
Bashar al-Assad has said in an interview that Donald Trump will be a “natural ally” if the US president-elect fulfills his pledge to fight “terrorists”.
In his first reaction to Trump’s election victory last week, the Syrian president struck a note of caution and said he was unsure Trump would be able to keep his word and step up the fight against jihadists.
