Trump about to further destabilize the Middle East


[sign in to see URL]

oh the stupidity of this man apparently has no limits.


French President Emmanuel Macron has told Donald Trump he is "concerned" the US leader could unilaterally recognise Jerusalem as Israel's capital.

Any decision on the contested city's status must be "within the framework of negotiations between Israelis and Palestinians", Mr Macron said.

Earlier, similar warnings came from a number of Arab and Muslim nations.

Reports say the US president will recognise Jerusalem as Israel's capital this week.

Both Israelis and Palestinians claim the city as their capital.


is it just me, or is Trump trying to find someone to get into a war with?

so far there has been no takers, but who knows how long that will last.

i guess he read that the approval rating of the president rises during times of war.

Re: Trump about to further destabilize the Middle East


When Mitch McConnell stated they'd make sure Obama was a one term president and their voice across the board would be no, we hadn't really meant Trump yet. He doesn't know what he's doing, he's just feeling the power to be able to do it.

Re: Trump about to further destabilize the Middle East


 
Remember when he called the president of Taiwan (Republic of China) and angering the Chinese.

Remember when he angered Great Britain prime minster by re-tweeting anti-Muslim videos. (Hint that happened last week)

 Trump doing a bang up job of making himself irrelevant.

I hope the republican party holds Trump
accountable for every single death that results from moving the US Embassy to Jerusalem. It will surely be attacked.

This is just another ignorant decision from the dumbest President we have ever had.

Re: Trump about to further destabilize the Middle East


Snowpixie, i dont know if he is the dumbest or not - I mean there have been some pretty dumb ones. But he certaimly is among the most intellectually challeneged. And even more disturbing is his unique combination of ignorance, arrogance, and a grossly distorted world view. The man is just flat out dangerous.

He's not only making himself irrelevant - he's succeeding in doing the same thing to the US.

And this one act has just undone years of US diplomacy in the middle East.

Freedom Rider: Obama’s Crimes are Revealed Under Trump

“The war against Yemen began in 2015, with a stamp of approval and military assistance from the Obama administration.”

Barack Obama was not the lesser evil president. He was always the more effective evil. The ruling classes were in desperate need of a new and attractive face to complete their ugly agenda. George W. Bush and the Republicans were reviled and thus no longer capable of bringing imperialist plots to fruition. They were bad for the brand and were shown the door for use at a later date.

Re: Trump about to further destabilize the Middle East


A long article but worth the read

‘Jerusalem Is Not the Explosive Device—It’s the Detonator’
President Trump’s announcement on the status of the holy city could spark a crisis across the Middle East.

EMMA GREEN

Even before reports suggested President Trump will declare that Jerusalem is the capital of Israel and eventually move the U.S. embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, officials were predicting that the announcement would create chaos. By predetermining the final status of Jerusalem, Trump’s announcement would derail any hope for an Israeli-Palestinian peace process, and spark violent protests across the Middle East.

Foreign leaders from across the Arab world have been warning the Trump administration of the potential for violence....

Re: Trump about to further destabilize the Middle East


I have to think is this Trump's doing or Kushners?

the Kushner family are close friends and allies of Netanyahu and for all his lowkey Jewishness he is at heart both a Zionist and a conservative Jew (you dont graduate from an orthodox Jewish school without being)

who ever is behind it Americas reputation is now in tatters every where except Israel and a few right wing conservative whack jobs who see it as one step closer to the end of the world


United Nations Resolution 181, resolution passed by the United Nations (UN) General Assembly in 1947 that called for the partition of Palestine into Arab and Jewish states, with the city of Jerusalem as a corpus separatum (Latin: “separate entity”) to be governed by a special international regime.
was signed by America

Re: Trump about to further destabilize the Middle East


Republicans have wanted this for a long time and actually it was on the dem platform previously, dropped in 2012, no one really did anything about it and there was a stink so it was dropped. Trump promised it in his campaign and yes it was Kushner's deal meeting with Netanyhu in June and August, the press put out it was to discuss "peace negotiations," I knew that was a lie. I think it is more like Jared's Hanukkah gift, maybe next year it will be blowing up all of Palestine........

UK recently sacked a minister who took herself off to Israel to lead her own freelance foreign policy negotiations with Netanyahu

Kushner wasn't freelancing, his father-in-law sent him and was president at the time, legal, other than I don't consider the Trump family in the WH and their phony titles legal!

What did that military assistance from Obama consist of? We're American troops sent in to help them? Or advisers? The article is a little vague.

And hasn't this country been supplying Saudi Arabia with military weapons for a long time?

Re: Trump about to further destabilize the Middle East


Yes for many decades, along with several others. If you notice many of those allies have a royal family that owns almost everything, they don't want invaders, they don't want terrorism, they want to keep what they have and we help them do it while they supposedly supply us with vast amounts of information and let us plant our behinds in their country. Personally I think it sounds like the game "Risk," played by a bunch of kids who can't grow up, except it's real. emoticon

Re: Trump about to further destabilize the Middle East


We all know what happened in Libya and America's bombing which destroyed the country. Now slave traders are very active in that country. Slave trading is an historical part of some American's psyche.

No ostentation but behind the scenes there was plenty of American help for the fascists in Ukraine. In Syria the US has troops but info is kept kept quiet, especially as they are going so badly at the moment.

And yes, America has been selling arms to the Saudis for a long time. America is complicit in the atrocities taking place in Yemen.

Re: Trump about to further destabilize the Middle East

The American and British media have awakened to the grim reality in Libya, where African refugees are being sold in open-air slave markets. Yet a crucial detail in this scandal has been downplayed or even ignored in many corporate media reports: the role of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization in bringing slavery to the North African nation.

In March 2011, NATO launched a war in Libya expressly aimed at toppling the government of longtime leader Moammar Qadhafi. The US and its allies flew some 26,000 sorties over Libya and launched hundreds of cruise missiles, destroying the Qadhafi government’s ability to resist rebel forces. American and European leaders initially claimed the military intervention was being carried out for humanitarian reasons, but political scientist Micah Zenko (Foreign Policy) used NATO’s own materials to show how “the Libyan intervention was about regime change from the very start.”

NATO supported an array of rebel groups fighting on the ground in Libya, many of which were dominated by Islamist extremists and harbored violently racist views. Militants in the NATO-backed rebel stronghold of Misrata even referred to themselves in 2011 as “the brigade for purging slaves, black skin”—an eerie foreshadowing of the horrors that were to come.

Re: Trump about to further destabilize the Middle East


Obama would intervene again but has admitted the worst mistake of his presidency was not preparing for the aftermath of Libya, which does surprise me considering Bush and Iraq. Planning for 'afters' seems leaders are remiss of thinking. What were Churchill and Roosevelt thinking giving away central/eastern Europe to Stalin? Mistakes at many others expense.
