But then yesterday, MBS said that the US should stay in Syria to stop Iran.
No doubt John Bolton is saying the exact same thing.
And no doubt Israel is too. But then again, John Bolton and Israel sing the same warmongering song.
Saudi Prince Mohammed bin Salman said Friday the US should maintain its military presence in Syria at least in the near future to prevent Iranian expansion in the war-ravaged nation, a day after US President Donald Trump stated that American would pull out of Syria “very soon.”
“We believe American troops should stay for at least the mid-term, if not the long-term,” Prince Mohammed told Time Magazine while on a tour of the US.
He said a US pullout would allow Saudi Arabia’s regional rival Iran to establish an arms route through Syria and Lebanon.
“If you take those troops out from east Syria, you will lose that checkpoint,” he said. “And this corridor could create a lot of things in the region.”
