Trump’s Middle East Foreign Policy is a Disaster Waiting to Happen

by Michael Krieger, Liberty Blitzkrieg:

Today’s post will focus on Trump’s recent visit to Saudi Arabia, a revolting spectacle which I could barely bring myself to follow. It all started Saturday morning as I tried to enjoy a beautiful day with my growing family and parents who were in town for a visit. My day was more or less ruined upon witnessing the appalling scene of Trump and his top advisors dancing with the rulers of the terrorist sponsoring state of Saudi Arabia while clutching swords. I’m sorry for doing this to you, but in case you missed it…

– From last month’s piece: America Has Become a Total Joke

The main thing we learned from Trump’s grotesque, orb clutching spectacle of a visit to the 9/11-funding absolute monarchy of Saudi Arabia, was that our demented President essentially green-lighted the Saudis to do whatever the heck they want in the Middle East. Considering Saudi Arabia is effectively being run by a 30-something princeling with sociopathic tendencies, absolutely nothing good can come of this. While Obama’s foreign policy in the Middle East was an unmitigated humanitarian and geopolitical disaster, it appears Trump’s doing his best to one up his predecessor.

Saudi Arabia is the most dangerous entity in the Middle East, and the writing’s been on the wall for a long time. In fact, German intelligence warned about it back in 2015. As The Telegraph reported:

Saudi Arabia is at risk of becoming a major destabilizing influence in the Arab world, German intelligence has warned.

Internal power struggles and the desire to emerge as the leading Arab power threaten to make the key Western ally a source of instability, according to the BND intelligence service.

“The current cautious diplomatic stance of senior members of the Saudi royal family will be replaced by an impulsive intervention policy,” a BND memo widely distributed to the German press reads.

Saudi Arabia has previously been accused of supplying arms and funding to jihadist groups fighting in Syria, including Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant (Isil).

With Trump, the Saudis finally found someone ignorant enough to allow them to unleash endless, unaccountable regional chaos and we’re beginning to harvest the poisonous fruits of this foreign policy idiocy. For one thing, we see it with the Saudis initiating a short-sighted and hypocritical aggression against its wealthy, gas rich neighbor Qatar under the guise that it supports terrorists. Of course, this is laughable as the Saudis are the biggest exporters of terrorism and radical ideology on the planet, and also played an instrumental role in the attacks of 9/11.

As Northeastern University Political Science Professor Max Abrahms so accurately noted the other day on Twitter.

Anyone who knows anything about what’s going on in the world, and isn’t totally brainwashed by corporate media garbage, understands exactly how true the above statement is.
