If there is any doubt Trump was captured early on by the neocons, one only need to look at the speech he delivered in Saudi Arabia.President Trump is positioning the United States for additional support of the Saudi-Israeli alliance against the Syria-Iran alliance. This will not end well. The United States should stay out of this Middle East mess.
The 30 minute speech was written by Senior Policy Adviser Stephen Miller, an ally of former Breitbart executive Stephen Bannon and former Breitbart writer Julia Hahn.Miller organized and promoted “Islamo-Fascism Awareness Week” while a student at Duke University. He worked with the notorious neocon firebrand David Horowitz at the time. Josefin Dolton writes:As a college student, Miller wrote a biweekly column for the The Duke Chronicle, addressing such topics as terrorism, US foreign policy and political correctness. Defending President George W. Bush’s war in Iraq, Miller wrote that “Islamic terrorists have declared holy war on the United States. They have declared a death sentence on every man, woman and child living in this country.”Horowitz has written columns for Breitbart. He is an ardent supporter of Israel’s Likudniks. In 2014, he thanked the Islamic State for bringing attention to “Islamo-fascism” and stampeding frightened Americans into his camp of fringe neocons. His Freedom Center was funded by the late Richard Mellon Scaife. He ran a news service for CIA propaganda.Horowitz was an ardent supporter of the neocon invasion of Iraq that killed over a million people...Miller’s speech reveals what lies ahead—further demonizing Iran and possibly attacking it with an “Arab NATO” armed to the teeth with high-tech American weapons.
Trade with everyone but avoid foreign entanglements.
