Allies play hard to get on U.S. proposal to protect oil shipping lanes

Recommended Posts

It won't take long.  As soon as one of their ships or tankers hits a mine or is snagged by the Iranian R.G. then they will quickly change their tune.

I'm so glad to stop shipping, especially now with the way Iran is behaving. Good bye Dubai.

Dont worry, trump will drop any treaty as soon as his thumbs hit the twitter button. 

 

Pity, treaties and allies used to mean something.

Well I imagine you will get to see very shortly.

The world leaders know Donald is unstable ignorant and stubborn many nato country’s have the capacity to take out Iran’s navy if it comes to that any sensible world leader wouldent want Donald to have control of anything of importance 

I don't think unstable and ignorant leadership precludes a person from being a military leader.  Most of the military leaders I've met during my 70 year life have been unstable and ignorant.  Nor can I think of any world leader off hand who I think is sensible.  Matter of fact all that I can think of are not sensible.

Trump has gone out of his way to disavow our allies, criticize them at every opportunity, pay them no respect whatsoever, and talk on and on and on about what they owe the US, why they are not playing fair, and why they are not good friends of the US. Now, he asks for help. What on earth does this man, who does not have a common sense bone in his body, and is the worst negotiator around, expect from them at this point? Yes, sir. Whatever you say sir! Not going to happen. He has spend two years attempting to destroy alliances that took 50-100 years to build. 

 

I suggest he ask his dictator friends for help. He has spent so much effort befriending them, maybe Russia or North Korea can help the US, and prove just how deep those alliances are. 

Iran has taken two British tankers.  Wouldn't you imagine that the Brits would be asking Trump for help instead of the reverse?

You asked, "What treaty would that be?"  So, I told you, Nato.  

And I pointed out to you the example of Iraq. Did most of nato allies come to the aid of the US then?
