Jack Keane: We’re Moved from Appeasement of Iran for the Last 8 Years to Standing with Our Allies Against Them

‘This is very much about our allies because for the last eight years the interests of the United States in the Middle East, and also allies, have been trampled on by the Obama Administration’

RUSH TRANSCRIPT:

KEANE: "Yes, certainly. This is very much about our allies because for the last eight years the interests of the United States in the Middle East, and also allies, have been trampled on by the Obama Administration. Just remember that this deal, the nuclear agreement was the seminal foreign policy and national security object to is that the Obama Administration for eight years. As a result of that, he gave us a sense, the civil war and Syria that we refuse to aid the theory and opposition forces and at least we may not have been able to run a sod out of power, but we could have done so much more to stop the killing that has taken place. So our allies absolutely applaud this. When President Trump went to Riyadh a few months ago and made the seminal speech therapy for 55 liters of the Middle East and northern Africa, he told them, the first thing he said, Iran is the strategic enemy in the region and I will stand with you against this number one threat to the region. So while we are focusing so much of the nuclear deal and what’s wrong with it and how to create some threats to fix it, and the real major thing I get out of this is the strategic object is that we move from appeasement to Iran for the last eight years, the confrontation and willingness to stand up with our allies against them."
