BEIRUT, LEBANON (11:35 A.M.) – US Vice President Mike Pence commended geopolitical changes in the Middle East, hinting at a recent convergence of Saudi and Israeli interests, at the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) conference in Washington D.C. on Monday.

“The winds of change are blowing across the Middle East. Long standing enemies are becoming partners, old foes are finding new ground for cooperation,” said Pence.

He went on to say that “we will not allow the defeat of ISIS to become a victory for Iran,” which he said “seeks to carve out a cordon of influence running through Iraq, Syria and Lebanon.”

US Ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley, who also attended at the conference, lauded US President Donald Trump’s “courage” to recognise Jerusalem as Israel’s capital and to relocate the US embassy to Jerusalem.

Haley argued that Israel gets “bullied” by the UN because “the countries that don’t like Israel are used to being able to get away with it.”

Usually, when Americans sit with the jews, their speech is written by Zionists. He has to read what is given to him.

Nobody except the US – that print money – can afford to station forces abroad just to annoy some other state. Iran wins when the danger is over and troops can come home. Iranians do not make a living by occupying other countries.

This is what the US citizens can expect from Pence. He is the worst of the worst, his Zionist credentials are beyond doubt. His statement about ‘winds of change’ simply means that the Israeli and KSA long running love affair has become public knowledge and now can proceed in the light as a revamped ally. His blather about Iran not being able to claim victories over ISIS means they intend to double-down against Iran and try to propagandize their way into claiming victory themselves(although it will take ‘years’). Of course this victory will be only on TV, not reality. Nikki… Read more »

May God forgive to this poor man for his foolishness. He is a lost soul. He is just a puppet. Nothing more, nothing less. He was born in the State of Indiana, USA on the b****y soil where his grandparents and white fellows killed millions of native Americans (called Indians by Christopher Columbus thinking he’s reached India) and stole their land. This man and all his fellow murders are cursed to burn in the h**l. They just don’t know it, yet.
