    Trump will forget what he promised 5 minutes later.

    ???? that is the most repeated statement of every recent administration so I am not seeing that Trump did anything but repeat Clinton, Bush and Obama on extremism. That little human rights thingy is probably the most important talk he could have had if he bothered to bring it up. This was a terrible trip and location choices. Not sure why anyone thinks any of this is good. There is a reason Saudi was mad at Obama. There is a reason the US did not exclude Palestine and warned Israel to knock off dropping state of the art bombs on people with rocks. Think David and Goliath.

    Your OP is rather depressing.

    This board seems to be taking a time out to dream so don't insert reality into this.

    Seems exactly the same as every world leader since the day I was born. No difference whatsoever.

    Identify the single worst sponsor of terror and violence, the craziest of the crazy, the one who is so oppressive and tyrannical that no one could ever possibly live under them without fighting back, thus 100% guaranteeing never ending conflict. Call that nation your greatest ally against the exact same terrorism they create, give them 12 figures worth of weaponry and support, and take all the money they give you for the arms and spend it on fighting terrorism.

    That's never changed in my lifetime.

    If anyone can tell me any single difference between Saudi Arabia and ISIS - one single difference - well I'd be very interested to hear it. Cause I sure don't see one.

    Yet it's somehow necessary for all our countries to ally with 12th century ultra violent theocracy bevause it's our best way to fight an identical 12th century ultra violent theocracy.

    Ain't that the million dollar question? Trump has them paying lip service to the idea, though.

    I never expected that much progress.

    So clearly, he has SOME mojo on this issue.

    Obama did not give Iran a green light to nukes. Aret you the guy who wants trumps words and deeds reported accurately? Don't you think you should do the same when the subject is Obama?

    It's not his promise to follow through on. It's the leaders of the Arab nations'.

    Please. Stop with the pretense. What ELSE could they have wanted nuclear capability for?
