One Hundred Words on Endangering Our Troops

Just a few days in, the President’s accomplishments are piling up, for better or worse depending on your politics. However, one lingers as a troubling issue most Americans should agree needs attention. 32

On Saturday, before the hallowed Wall of the Fallen at CIA headquarters, Trump said this about the War in Iraq: “I always used to say, ‘Keep the oil’… maybe you will have another chance.” 66

Keeping the oil would have be a war crime. Worse, saying that we might keep it “next time” endangers troops currently in oil producing countries right now.

Our troops deserve better from their Commander-in-Chief.

    No, keeping the oil wouldn’t have been a war crime. Conquering other nations isn’t such a thing. It could be argued – uselessly I might add – that it would have been a war of aggression at that point, something the UN is supposedly against, but even that could have been smoothed over by calling it the long-established term of reparations along with payment for our repairing and modernizing their extraction and refining capabilities.

    Now, I’m not saying that I would agree with such a course of action, but your claims are spurious.
