For once, a Republican is blaming George Bush for all the turmoil in the middle east, something I never thought I’ll say. In an interview on MSNBC’s Meet The Press, the current Republican leader for the White House placed the blame squarely on Bush’s shoulders when he said the middle east would be more stable had Bush left the dictators in charge!
Maybe this claim will cause the Trump downfall among his Republican faithful. Maybe that is what he wants.
“It’s not even a contest,” the GOP front-runner said on NBC’s “Meet the Press.”
Trump said ISIS came out of the unrest after Hussein was deposed in Iraq, and four Americans were killed in Benghazi, Libya when Gadhafi was being ousted from power.
“You wouldn’t have had your Benghazi situation which is one thing which was just a terrible situation,” Trump said when asked if the Middle East would be more stable with the two in power. “But, of course, it would. Libya is not even– nobody even knows what’s going on over there. It’s not even a country anymore.”
Trump compared the “mess” in Iraq and Libya to the current attempts to oust Syria’s President Bashar al-Assad. “It’s going to be the same thing,” he said.0
