Trump’s planned meeting with Iraqi PM was scrapped

President Donald Trump flew out of Iraq Wednesday night after spending a few hours greeting US troops and officers at the Al Asad base in the western province of Anbar. A planned meeting with Iraqi PM Adel Abdel Mahdi was scrapped and replaced by a phone call. Talking to reporters, Trump answered criticism that his decision to leave Syria would increase jeopardy for Israel. “Well I don’t see it,” he said. “And I spoke with Bibi.  I told Bibi.  And, you know, we give Israel $4.5 billion a year – and a lot more if you look at the books.  And they’re doing very well defending themselves, if you take a look.”

    Israel needs 1 fast attack nuclear submarine Virginia class or Seawolf class, for daily service and a second one to keep in reserve and run in rotation with the other one, for Mediterranean and eventually Atlantic.

    Similarly , for the Indian Ocean, 2 Los Angeles class are needed, to allow the Israeli captain to look through the periscope to the Iranians.

    Fully loaded. After that, ayatollahs will suddenly sweeten the tone of their shit f**king talking nonsense.

    Trump probably scrapped his visit due to it being too dangerous as the the attack on the US embassy proved.
