This move makes a lot of sense.
After all, Al-Trump campaigned on “protecting our Islamic brothers, inshallah, in the lands of Mecca and Medina, may Allah be upon them.”
It was one of his most moving speeches.
So I’m glad to see him following through with that campaign promise.
President Trump has authorized the deployment of additional U.S. forces to the Middle East to strengthen air and missile defenses around Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates, the Pentagon announced late Friday.
Defense Secretary Mark Esper called the move a first step and said that the deployment would be defensive in nature. He said the deployment comes in response to requests for help from Saudi Arabia and the UAE.
General Joseph Dunford, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, called the deployment moderate, but offered no specifics on the number of troops involved. He said the Pentagon would have more to say about the deployment next week.
Al-Trump “Blessed of Allah, Most High, Most Merciful” is turning out to be one of the greatest leaders in the Sunni Islamic world.
Truly, Allah’s blessings are upon us.
