Trump decides his Middle East politics with Tel Aviv and Riyadh alone.
Trump likes two colors: black and white ... The murder of Khashoggi is a pain in the ass. It’s dragging him into the field he hates the most: complexity.
[T]he American president is no longer concerned with even a minimum of tact in international communication.
As much as it may be a bold and praiseworthy idea on the surface ... the idea of a MESA military alliance against Iran, with the participation of the U.S., is as practical as teaching eggs to fly. The idea is also bold, potentially useful, but at the same time impractically idiotic.
