Trump: Saudi Arabia should pay U.S. soldiers to fight its wars

President has been criticized for saying that if Arabia wants the U.S. to anyone besides and Al Qaeda in Syria, then Saudi Arabia should pay for .

“But is right to call attention to the key role of the of Saudi Arabia in pressing the for a more militarily aggressive policy in Syria,” says a foreign policy analyst.

As in the case of unconstitutional U.S. participation in the catastrophic Saudi in Yemen, we need to ask: why are we obligated to fight Saudi Arabia’s proxy wars in the Middle East? How is this in the interests of the majority of Americans?, asked the Just Foreign Policy.

Some who want to keep the U.S. military in Syria indefinitely argue that the U.S. military must stay to guarantee that can never re-emerge in Syria. But that argument is essentially a tautology.

The only way the U.S. can use military force to guarantee that ISIS never re-emerges in Syria is to keep the U.S. military in Syria forever, which is of course exactly what these people want.

They want to keep the U.S. military in Syria forever, like they want to keep the U.S. military in , Afghanistan, and Yemen forever.

“According to these people, the right time to withdraw the U.S. military from any country is never.

“According to these people, the right time to withdraw the U.S. military from any country is after some vague, amorphous, ill-defined goal is achieved, which goal always seems to be just out of reach,” said the analyst.

However, nothing is certain with American foreign policy makers.

Trump himself was a proponent of the ‘no attack on Syria’ campaign in 2012-2013.

His tweet dated 2013 ridiculed then President on the Syrian war.
