BEIRUT, LEBANON  (12:30 P.M.) – In a new interview with the Washington Post, U.S. President Donald Trump said that U.S. troops will remain in the Middle East for Israel.

“One reason to (stay in the Middle East—ed.) is Israel,” Trump said, as quoted by Ynet News.

“Oil is becoming less and less of a reason because we’re producing more oil now than we’ve ever produced. So, you know, all of a sudden it gets to a point where you don’t have to stay there…” Trump continued.

The U.S. President then turned his attention to Saudi Arabia, who he called a “great ally” and useful source to counterbalance Iran.

“They’ve (Saudi Arabia) been a great ally. Without them, Israel would be in a lot more trouble… We need to have a counterbalance to Iran,” he added.

Heh Heh ! like we didn’t know that the US has been fighting all these wars for the sake of Israel.d**n the whole corrupt government is ran by Israeli firsters, how could it be any other way? Drumpf now drops the pretence of oil interests as being the reason for US warmongering in the M.E.

He’s bullshïtting and big league.
They’re all in for the money, including the shithadists and the enturbaned morons in Tehran.
Oil is only the #2 business on Earth, the #1 being weapons.

Finally, a US president to say the big truth! However, every human with working brain knew that since the creation of Khazars Kingdom II (I really don’t know why they call it “Israel”).
