Trump: ‘I Would Bomb the Hell Out of the Oil Fields’ in Iraq to Fight ISIS (and Take the Oil)

21st Century Wire says…

Like most Republicans, anything outside of US shores is treated as an abstraction, and GOP candidates normally stick to FOX News narratives for fear of not sounding knowledgeable (which they are not). Either Trump has the worst foreign policy advisers (or no foreign policy advisers), or he doesn’t actually know what he’s talking about.

His plan: to stop ISIS we need to “cut off their finances”, so the US must bomb the Iraqi oil fields (even though ISIS only control a tiny number of oil fields in Iraq), and then deploy thousands of US troops to protect US oil corporations like Exxon while they pump Iraq’s oil and then keep (and sell) that oil for themselves. Trump believes this is a sound course of action (even though he would end up in the Hague).

Incredible…

Before he announced his presidential run, you may remember that Donald Trump bragged that he knows how to defeat ISIS, but won’t tell yet because he doesn’t want to give his military secrets away to the terrorists.

Well, in his interview with CNN’s Anderson Cooper tonight, Trump reluctantly gave details, after making it incredibly clear he doesn’t want to do this.

He said that he would be “so tough” with ISIS, “I don’t know if they’d be around to come to the table.” Specifically, he wants to “attack the various oil sites… controlled by ISIS.”

Cooper asked him about the potential consequences of such an action. Trump insisted, “I would bomb the hell out of those oil fields. I wouldn’t send many troops because you won’t need them by the time I’m finished.”
