  • Trump, Obama and the book wars

    I read this editorial today published in a Saudi news source and thought it good enough to share on this forum. A view from afar you might say...

    “It seems we are in the phase of “the war of books” in this political and propagandist confrontation in the American arena.

    A number of books have been released in a short period of time just about Trump. These books were by marginal writers as well major authors such as famous American journalist Bob Woodward who will publish his book ‘Fear: Trump in the White House’ next Tuesday.

    However, most of these books lack credibility and integrity. Hence, they’ve become mere trumpets and winding horns in the endless war between the American leftist media and President Trump.

    “Serious” books are usually written after the president’s term or terms end or even after a decade or more so the vision is purer and more comprehensive. However, what happened with Trump, and with Bush Jr. before him, due to these tribes of authors had nothing to do with these writing habits.

    Speaking of books, 'Losing An Enemy: Obama, Iran, and the Triumph of Diplomacy' by Trita Parsi, an Iranian political activist in America, was recently published in Arabic by Arab Scientific Publishers.

    Parsi is the current president of the National Iranian American Council, one of the Iranian lobby institutions in the US. This dangerous activist of course defended the “deal of the century” between the West and Iran – the mean deal that came at the expense of Arabs and which was weaved by Obama and his minister Kerry.

    Parsi met the people who cooked this poisonous dinner, including former Secretary of State John Kerry, former Deputy National Security Advisor Ben Rhodes (Rhodes also published a book that is very dangerous about Obama’s phase), Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammed Javad Zarif and others.

    Speaking of Kerry, the tailor of the secret agreement with Iran and which betrayed Arabs – or most Arabs – also published his memoir 'Every Day is Extra' and mentioned his side of the story about the Syrian tragedy in which he admits, one way or another, that his President Obama is the one who “opened its wound” and left it open.

    Among the confessions Kerry made about Bashar and Syria is the statement: “Yes, we knew there were precursor chemicals” in Bashar’s possession. They knew this after Obama’s administration announced that Syria handed over its entire chemical weapons arsenal. This misinformation was later exposed when the Syrian regime launched other chemical attacks on, for instance, Khan Shaykhun.

    Kerry discussed “the difficult negotiations” regarding the Iranian deal and the hours spent on them, and he presented himself as the deal’s hero. President Trump picked this up and attacked Kerry who is preparing himself for the 2020 presidential race from now – a race in which he recorded a failure yesterday – and Trump shamed Kerry as “the father of the Iranian nuclear deal.”

    Regardless of the intentions of the authors of these books, we are, in the midst of this enmity, insults and boasts, attaining information that used to be confidential – things that were done in the dark in the near past and which explain to us part of what we are seeing in Syria, Yemen and Iraq.

    I really don't want to hear about Obama, to me he is in the rearview mirror and I am trying to forget him.

      I stopped following. My tax rate is down and ISIS hasn't attacked since Trump took office. God bless.

        Yeah, there are definite and undeniable improvements since he left.

          I get more of my paycheck, the government gets less, the economy is good, unemployment is very low.
          I remember a few sayings from the 1990s,
          ”It’s the economy stupid “ and “It’s just sex”.
          of course there was that other classic. “Bimbo out break” but feminists get to say those things.

                  Guess you better turn stop watching/listing to the news(?) programs then since it appears he is in campaign mode for the 2018 elections and you can be sure his blather will be covered in the 2020 campaigns.

                    Good. He bankrupted the DNC campaigning against Romney, forcing them to rig their own convention to get the Hillabeast's money. He campaigned for the Hillabeast, too, and she lost.

                    The DNC is sticking with the same old same old. The same tactics that lost them Congress, the Oval Office, and more state positions than at any point in the last hundred years.

                        My 13th jump was on the 13th day of the month, aircraft number 013.
                        As recorded on my DA Form 1307 Individual Jump Log.
                        No lie.

                          That idea of yours has been superceded by the present administration and president. Trump will sell the US down the river in half a heartbeat. And he began that process by giving two high-level Russian government officials classified information in the Oval Office and then by paying homage to Putin in Helsinki.

                            Wow! A president meeting with the representatives of other nations!
                            In the White House no less!
                            Shall we go down the lists of other representatives of other countries have met with other presidents?
                            We will start with Obama,

                              A "Saudi" news source? Seriously? The nation behind 9/11? The ones Obama bowed to and sucked up to?
                              I don't give a what they think of our leaders.
