I wasn’t aware we needed their permission...
We do not need Israel’s permission. Screw them on this.
Remember, Israel has a large population of socialist and other loser leftists.
If they don’t like it, well, they could ask Russian for financial and military aid instead of us. They should, since their existence is pretty much based on our money and security umbrella, get on board and be supportive. Either they are with us or not. And not, I don’t really think then want to go there.
The moment uncle sugar stops fighting their wars or giving them billions in aid...with friends like this...
I haven’t heard Bibi complain, so he’s the only one that matters to me.
So the whole thing was Trump’s whimsical idea.
That's OK. Those troops are there illegally under U.S. law anyway.
Israel needs to attack Syria to stop this genocide, I will fully support this.
Don’t need Israel’s “consultation.”
Since when the hell does the United States need Israel’s permission for anything?
Bibi can’t go public with a disagreement with President Trump until after the judiciary rules on his pending indictments.
Right now he’s forced to have his underlings do the smacking around of our President.
You put him over our own president, President Trump? Sure hope I am misreading that, but maybe you are in Israel, so maybe a different perspective.
Israel’s interests do not coincide with ours in Syria. Assad is still the defender of Christians and other minorities. Israelis benefit from other govs in their neighborhood being destabilized. So do the Saudis.
So both Israel and Saudi Arabia want/need American troops there and for some insane reason we have taken the weight off of the Russians. I find it unbelievable that America accepted Obama holdover foreign policy. Maybe that is too simplistic but the question should be asked of why we are there and to what interest.
No, that’s not what I meant at all. I meant since Bibi hasn’t complained, Liberman can take a hike. I never mentioned President Trump in my comment.
“I havent heard Bibi complain, so hes the only one that matters to me.”
My thought exactly.
Too many of us, and fortunately, many of them, do not understand Trump’s methodology.
Silly you. Of course we need Saudi Barbarian & Israeli permission to pull out of any area where they want us to expend American lives, blood & treasure in the Middle East.
Pretty much everything the US does in the Middle East is dictated by Israel.
