Stunning Win – Saudi King Salman Agrees to Support/Finance Safe Zones In Syria and Yemen…

This is a jaw-dropping exhibition of the scope of President Trump’s strategic leverage. Remember how Secretary of State Rex Tillerson refused to take the bait from Senator Marco Rubio regarding Saudi Arabia?  Put this outcome in the dividend column.

Those who have not followed the back-story of non-extremist politics in the middle-east will miss the obvious play identified more readily by those who have followed closely.

One of the major influences and advisers for King Salman of Saudi Arabia is Egyptian President Fattah Abdel el-Sisi.  El-Sisi has already established a productive relationship with President Trump both before and after the election.  No doubt King Salman and President Sisi debriefed the prior conversations between Trump and el-Sisi.

Today King Salman agrees to a primary expressed policy position of President Trump.  Saudi Arabia will support and finance “safe zones” within Syria and Yemen.  This is a big, big deal.

(Via Reuters) Saudi Arabia’s King Salman, in a phone call on Sunday with U.S. President Donald Trump, agreed to support safe zones in Syria and Yemen, a White House statement said.

Trump, during his presidential campaign last year, had called for Gulf states to pay for establishing safe zones to protect Syrian refugees.

A statement after the phone call said the two leaders agreed on the importance of strengthening joint efforts to fight the spread of Islamic State militants.

“The president requested and the King agreed to support safe zones in Syria and Yemen, as well as supporting other ideas to help the many refugees who are displaced by the ongoing conflicts,” the statement said.

[…]  A senior Saudi source told Reuters the two leaders spoke for over an hour by telephone and agreed to step up counter-terrorism and military cooperation and enhance economic cooperation. But the source had no word on whether the two leaders discussed Trump’s order to put a four-month hold on allowing refugees into the United States and temporarily ban travelers from Syria and six other Muslim-majority countries.

The source said Saudi Arabia would enhance its participation in the U.S.-led coalition fighting to oust Islamic State from its strongholds in Iraq and Syria.

The White House statement said the two leaders also agreed on the need to address “Iran’s destabilizing regional activities.” SPA also mentioned Trump and the King had similar visions on “confronting whomever seeks to destabilise security and stability in the region and interfere in the affairs of other countries,” an apparent reference to Riyadh’s arch-foe Iran.

Both countries share views about Iranian policies in the region, the Saudi source said, suggesting Trump agreed with Riyadh’s suspicion of what it sees as Tehran’s growing influence in the Arab world. Iran denies it meddles in Arab countries.  (read more)

In addition to el-Sisi there are modern entities within the Gulf States, specifically the UAE, who will understand and support a more strategic White House relationship.

Predictably, Qatar, the worst of the bunch, will be excluded if they don’t fall in line.  The Gulf States have grown more open in their admonishment of the actions under the table of those holding extremist views.  When Qatar expelled the five leaders of the Muslim Brotherhood, this was an early indication that Sisi’s moderate ideological influence was empowering push back.   The Gulf States rallied around Sisi’s call for expulsion.

A move by King Salman (Saudi Arabia) to support the safe zones in Syria and Yemen is evidence of Sisi’s growing alliance holding more influence.  King Abdullah (Jordan) is already on team Sisi.

This is good news for everyone who wants to see Islamic extremist elements confronted and removed.

  4. For those advocating for the Iraqis who “helped” our troops in Iraq? Read this and think again!
    “As we noted in our report on the trial of “Steve-O,” an Iraqi man who “helped” American soldiers in Iraq and who in turn was granted asylum in the US because a soldier befriended him, horrific cases like this one rarely make national news in large part, I believe, because it goes against the melting pot mythology surrounding Islam and our immigration policy that has opened America’s doors to an alien culture.”

    Without these “Protest To Change” in many different forms we would not be here today. President Trump has awakened America and proven that good trumps evil through self deportation. NO FEAR! There is no doubt in my mind this journey is in God’s hands and I am at peace with my decision to stand with Trump. I pray for Trump and his family every night and with everything that has transpired, I know something amazing going on here. He must have incredible inner peace to endure everything he’s been through. Love the man!

    If all the permanently outraged leftists were actually interested in a solution to the “refugee” problem instead of simply finding an excuse for venting their hatred of President Trump, they should be hailing this development. Chances are our new President will finish the 15 year War on Terror and solve the “refugee” crisis without endangering US citizens. God Bless President Trump.

    I assume this has been asked already, but since the “safe zones” will be largely for Sunnis, how can we be sure they won’t just be “fall back” areas for ISIS to retreat & regroup? The Gulf Arabs have been funding ISIS. Now they’re creating “safe zones” to save people from ISIS? It sounds like a way that the Syrian civil war might be continued indefinitely. I was rather preferring just letting Assad regain complete control of Syria – the status quo ante – when Syria was relatively peaceful (especially for Christians) and before Hillary/Obama/McCain got a wild hair up their ass to go toppling another government.

    One: Trump is solving problems faster that Soros can round up mobs to protest his solutions. I note that even CNN stopped its 24/7 travel ban coverage to give 10 minutes to new safe area agreement. Tomorrow the King of Jordan visit will bump yesterday’s safe area story!!

    Two: ObamaCare replacement — Trump should give Ryan/McConnell 90 days to come up with a replacement, and if they can’t do it, Trump should hand them his plan and give them 90 days to pass it.

    Three: My head is spinning from how fast POTUS is accomplishing major achievements. Never enjoyed a headache before.

    Trump, Putin, plus the leaders of the region will make short work of cleaning up the mess that the Uniparty (D)ummycrats and (R)epublicrats and spineless EUrocrats have created. Plain and simple. Their only real obstacle is from the institutional momentum at home of years of unchecked leftist liberalism with no accountability.

    Moving millions of Syrian “refugees” out of the area and into Germany, France, Belgium, Italy, etc and the USA ( 7,000 miles away! ) made no sense, ever. It was a gift to ISIS. The westerners who hatched this scheme were gifting ISIS by removing their potential adversaries and resistance off the battlefield. They were literally working for ISIS conquering the region.

    It was also a gift to Islam itself in its 1400 year Jihad to conquer the world. Rather than having to hack or shoot their way in to enemy territory, the westerners decided to invite the barbarians through their gates, and even are trying to remove the gates altogether! Goths, Moors, Muslims, no lesson of history is too important to remember in the minds of idiotic liberals.

    It was a direct attack on USA citizens and taxpayers. They bring in people who can never be truly vetted, and then have a perfect excuse for jacking up the domestic police state to Orwellian levels to “keep us safe”. That’s a two’fer for the enemy right there and kills us twice in the process. When there is a natural disaster in the USA, does New Zealand or Kuwait or India fly us 7,000 miles and gift us cash money from their “taxpayers”? Obviously not, but perhaps we can talk all of these benevolent countries into taking our homegrown liberal sheep off our hands permanently.

    The President’s action is an obvious product of cost-benefit analysis, tons of upside with nothing down. He kills multiple birds with one stone here. He establishes a working relationship with Saudi, potentially useful when USA and Russia start sorting out these Neocon/Neoliberal conflicts. He has established a place to send the already evacuated refugees and the future ones, especially our own. Having them camped there in theater is a huge psychological blow to ISIS and its partners because it rolls back their gains and can only be seen as a demoralizing defeat which is one of the few things that bothers them. When Syria gets rebuilt, the new improved and much better behaved Assad will have plenty of native hands to do the work for free, it is their own homeland after all. Terminating the gravy train, Trump saves the taxpayers even more money that was about to be blown. And he did it all with a phone call!

    These refugees never should have left the area in the first place. As someone pointed out, Saudi is a big empty sandbox which already has facilities for millions, but they likely compromised and went with financing Syrian zones instead. Art of the deal in action yet again.

    There is typical Liberal false analogies going around. Vietnam is hardly comparable. We had tens of thousands of Amerasian babies who once they reached adolescence, were being abused, enslaved and worse. Bringing them in with their mothers was humanitarian and specific laws were passed for this. We also had a real obligation to many South Vietnamese who the Communist Congress literally left for dead ( IMHO they wanted the Viet Cong and NVA to wipe them out after the last chopper flew off ). And anyone who knew Vietnamese refugees in the 1980’s knows that they would rat out any of their own if they were Anti-American at all. Moreover, they had named sponsors who they reported to and were responsible for their actions. Green cards used to be revoked for the most minor infraction, just ask John Lennon.

    A really great idea would be to get a retroactive Alien Sponsorship bill passed into law. Each alien here must find a named sponsor who is liable for them until they become citizens. Taxpayers must be paid back for everything spent thus far, and any criminal action they engage in revokes their status and they get deported and the sponsor is billed for all costs. Aliens need to provide the name of their sponsor on demand and that person had better know the location and contact information for the Alien when queried. Weekly or monthly check-ins required, just like all citizens must do if they have parole officers.

    Then, the leftist celebutards can really put their money where their mouth is. Sponsor an Alien today, and take responsibility for their actions. If we get back to law and order, then the concept of accountability must be front and center. With the Soros riots at the inauguration for example, just pursue the names of the groups on the permits for the demonstrations and charge them financially for damages, and criminally for the violence and injuries. Things will get sorted out quickly when their wallets are on the line and a prison cell lies waiting.

      When are we going to arrest George Soros for promotion of Un-American behavior, renting mobs of anarchists at every turn and for any reason, he is America’s #1 Seditionist. He must be arrested, convicted in a Terrorism court, sentenced for life plus two hundred years of solitary confinement; then we’ll decide which extradition requests to entertain. I know his former killing grounds wants him, and if death is on the table, I’ll help pay for the trip.

      Heck, just snag him and give him to whomever will end his evil existence quickest. Send his children/monsters in training too. Confiscate all his holdings, use that to build good walls around the World, and to extinguish the Islamic threat.
