Donald Trump critique of US foreign policy in Iraq

This is the only thing I agree with Donald Trump on. Hahaha! He’s a smart dude. But we must wonder what his alternative will be, besides wanting to make America great again!

Begin Trump quote:

“Logic was replaced with foolishness and arrogance, and this led to one foreign policy disaster after another.

“We went from mistakes in Iraq to Egypt to Libya, to President Obama’s line in the sand in Syria. Each of these actions have helped to throw the region into chaos, and gave ISIS the space it needs to grow and prosper.

“It all began with the dangerous idea that we could make Western democracies out of countries that had no experience or interest in becoming a Western Democracy.

“We tore up what institutions they had and then were surprised at what we unleashed. Civil war, religious fanaticism; thousands of American lives, and many trillions of dollars, were lost as a result. The vacuum was created that ISIS would fill. Iran, too, would rush in and fill the void, much to their unjust enrichment.

“Our foreign policy is a complete and total disaster.

“No vision, no purpose, no direction, no strategy.”
