“How Stupid Have We Been!” Trump on US Middle East Adventurism
By Staff, Agencies
US President Donald Trump acknowledged “how stupid” his country has been in its Middle East adventurism.
Trump made the comment at a press conference Monday as the US presence in the Middle East continued to destabilize the region.
“We spent 8 trillion dollars in the Middle East, that’s with a “t”,... eight trillion. But if you need to fill a pothole, oh, we can’t do that. How stupid have we been, just stupid!”
Ever since assuming office, Trump has been raising tensions in the region, in part by adopting an anti-Iran approach.
Trump unilaterally pulled the US out of a multilateral nuclear deal with Iran and ordered the assassination of IRGC Quds Force Commander Lieutenant General Qassem Soleimani.
The US maintains a military presence in the Gulf, backs dictatorships such as Bahrain and Saudi Arabia, while sparing no efforts to destabilize resource-rich nations such as Iraq.
