Trump declared that it is important for the world to see the US perform its responsibility to appear as a moral leader and that he hopes they appreciated this performance...also mentioning that it's available same day on Blue Ray, DVD and pay per view.
Without the massive wealth generated to the Saudis by oil, their oppressive and violent version of Islam could not have been exported across the region and Al Qaeda and ISIS would not have been birthed. Without the lust for oil by U.S. neocons, had the Iraq War never taken place, Saddam would still be the dictator of Iraq with his Iraqi Army employed and intact, there would be no ISIS threat today.
Trump's rhetoric is the stuff of Nazi nationalism, demonizing all those who follow a specific religion, just substituting Muslims for Jews. In doing this, he is attempting to sew a swastika onto the American flag.
"We will destroy ISIL and any other organization that tries to harm us. Our success won’t depend on tough talk, or abandoning our values, or giving into fear.

"Ares, you are so cute! We love everything about you and the awesome wars you bring us, it's like, so sweet and gets us so hot! All we can think about is Armageddon-it-on with you!"
Unfortunately, since religion is such a minefield for politicians, Americans have become accustomed to disassociating religious extremists from their religion so as not to offend mainstream religious voters.
The Islamic Testimony Means Something Quite Different for Modernists versus Jihadist; and that could make all the difference.
ISIS is having its way with Iraq and Syria. When they gain control of those countries, will they turn their attention on Turkey, Jordan, or Saudi Arabia? Why would they stop with Syria and Iraq?
