Mind of a Scientist
I don't think anyone believed those things could be achieved in 2 years? I sure didn't. What's clear is that he's working towards those goals. Now imagine if he wasn't having to fight these battles with one hand tied behind his back?"If achieved" is correct because he hasn't done any of it. And peace in the ME? Literally laughed when I read that. That will never happen, never has and never will and the US doesn't want it, we need their wars.
I said Trump's family financials. He cares about his lasting legacy for his kids/grandkids. I do think Trump cares about the USofA, I personally he cares about himself and his family more. But so do most people so that really isn't saying much.
Peace in the ME may be laughable to you, but Trump has a plan & I'm hoping it works. Getting the Saudis/UAE/Egypt and others to sit at the negotiating table with the Israelis & acknowledge Israel's right to exist, was a huge first step. As you say, the US (although, I'd call it the 'deep state') doesn't want this to happen. That's why we see things like the Khashoggi killing framed in a such a way as to derail those plans. The power brokers like Iran sponsoring terrorism all over the ME. They like the wars on Libya, Syria & Yemen. They liked the more barbaric leadership of SA prior to MBS. They want ISIS all over the region. They want the Muslim Brotherhood in power in countries like Egypt. The last thing they want, is for Trump to upset their ME apple cart. They are 'the resistance'.
