Speaking at a rally in Florida on Saturday, President Donald Trump said he wants to create safe zones in Syria, and other Countries, as an alternative to allowing refugees to enter the USA.

He also added that he wants Gulf Countries to pay for these zones. He was quoted as saying “they (Gulf states) have nothing but money.”

This is not the first time Trump has mentioned creating safe zones, but has not previously indicated that he wants Gulf states to fund them.

During the rally, he said “We’ve allowed thousands and thousands of people into our country and there was no way to vet those people, there was no documentation there was no nothing. So, we’re going to keep our country safe.”

He failed to provide specific details, but he did say that people will be able to “stay there and live safely in their cities” until the conflict in Syria concludes.

Areas under the Syrian government’s control are overwhelmingly stable and safe. More than 1.5 million refugees from the provinces of Idlib and Aleppo currently reside in camps along the Syrian coast, in Latakia and Tartous. Providing these areas with aid and funds for infrastructure may be a better alternative.

Obviously Trump owns Syria – So the Gulf must pay him for the zones.
Irony!

p.s. I admit that he got a point when he says the GCC must pay for the consequences of the Syrian war they funded. The plan neglects however that Syria is a sovereign state and You would need Syrian consent or a UNSC mandate to create safe zones there legally.

He simply knows they won’t pay, so he’ll have an excuse to do nothing 😉

Este Loco debería de pedir a la Monarquía Saudi, a Turquía y otras naciones que no financien terroristas, esa sería una forma de mantener segura la zona de Golfo.

Yes that and they stop founding ultra conservative mosques that become a nest for failed souls that turn to religions extremism.

Well, actually, I still don’t know him enough to understand what he’s cooking or if he’s cooking anything. Actually, if he wants to really help Syria, the best thing he could do 1. Send help in humanitarian relief and to rebuild 2. Send the half of his A-10 and a dozen AC-130 as there is serious lack of CAS (close air support) because as long there’ll be armed sectarian loonies operating, there won’t be safe zones and the longer it’ll last, the more civilians will suffer. 3. Help securing the borders in order no armed troops whatever they are enter… Read more »

The US is into divide and rule. Like any empire. Oil rich East Kurdistan is almost independent by the grace of the US. West Kurdistan seems to be tagged for that. Though IMHO they will stay Syrian in view of Erdogan’s sabre rattling. The UdSSR split up. The loony that claims it was his work – will be sent as emissary to the EC – and says he is against it and the EC will dissolve…

p.s. Glad that the US has found IS and Qaeda as priorities.

When the Americans try something, generaly it smell very bad. They could help AQ and ISIS, more than actualy they do.

Being Muslims, no one wants them in their country; not even other Muslim countries. European countries paying heavy for their humanitarian acts. Many of their own citizens raped and looted and killed. Trump has duty to ensure long term interest of America. Its Gulf countries those supported ISIS against Syria. They should pay for whatever cost is there now. Wonder how he will enforce it?
