President Barack Obama pledged Americas ironclad commitment to anxious Persian Gulf nations Thursday to help protect their security, pointedly mentioning the potential use of military force and offering assurances that a potential nuclear agreement with Iran would not leave them more vulnerable.
At the close of a rare summit at the presidential retreat at Camp David, Obama said the U.S. would join the Gulf Cooperation Council nations to deter and confront an external threat to any GCC states territorial integrity. The U.S. pledged to bolster its security cooperation with the Gulf on counterterrorism, maritime security, cybersecurity and ballistic missile defense.
Let me underscore, the United States keeps our commitments, Obama said at a news conference.
Thursdays meeting at Obamas retreat in the Maryland mountains was aimed at quelling the Gulfs fears of U.S.-led nuclear talks with Iran. Gulf states worry that if Iran wins international sanctions relief, the influx of cash would embolden what they see as Tehran's aggression in the region.

Obola the undocumented without a SS# and without a BC
has destroyed America’s commitments, stabbing every
ally in the heart (with more to come).
I wouldn’t trust comrade obama anymore than I’d trust Iran. Comrade dictator obama routinely lies to his own people.
Someone should call Ukraine
Is there anyone left who takes him at his word?
How’s that commitment holding up in Ukraine?
He will draw a red line for them....
Not a word Obama says is worth the teleprompter it’s printed on.
SOB can’t even keep his commitment to his own country and laws.
Silly me - I thought Camp David belonged to the American people - I must have missed the closing ceremony when we handed the keys over to him.
The entire world knows Obama is a spineless poufter.
If you like your US “umbrella of protection”, you can keep your ...
Julie Pace is a moron. It is not a “summit” when only two heads of state show up. And when Obama says he offers “ironclad” security to the GC States, they laugh with scorn behind their sleeves.
I am sure they will trust him, ya, I am sure....
obama is a liar, not to be trusted
he stabs allies in the back and aids the enemy
In the 70’s when America abandoned the south Vietnamese people to a horrific fate I was ashamed. This abandonment of allies occurred after Nixon was driven from office... the promises that this nation made to our friends, that we would take strong measures if the North Vietnamese communists broke the peace accords they had agreed to were eagerly dispensed with by a shameless democrat congress.
I had hoped that such a thing would never happen again and that slowly our allies would come to trust our word. America regained much of that trust and then this nation was foolish enough to elect Obama.
Now here we are again, our commitments and promises are the subject of ridicule...and rightly so.
How far are we going to fall? Will it ever be possible to regain the trust this once proud nation had?
Beam me up.. I’m ready to go :-/
Just as soon as he restores the Monitor and Merrimac, he’ll send them over.
A security agreement written on cow dung.
