Трамп о войнах в Ираке и Афганистане: в 2007-м и сейчас

Сейчас-то известно что: ISIS -- результат вакуума, случившегося благодаря Обаме и Клинтон.

А его spokeswoman Катрина Пирсон и вовсе договорилась до того, что вроде как войну в Афранистане начал и вовсе Обама:
    Just this weekend, in fact, Pierson alleged in no uncertain terms that President Obama started the war in Afghanistan, despite his having been a state senator in Illinois at the time. "Remember: We weren’t even in Afghanistan by this time,” Pierson said. “Barack Obama went into Afghanistan, creating another problem.”
    Asked to clarify whether she was accusing Obama of launching the war in Afghanistan, which started in 2001, Pierson doubled down: "That was Obama's war, yes." She later appeared to blame "audio disruptions" for her comment.

Ну ладно, это сейчас. А что же было в 2007-м? А было интервью Трампа Вольфу Блитцеру:

    Donald Trump spoke about the Bush administration and the Iraq War, correctly predicting, "the day we pull out, it is going to explode." "Because they are in a civil war, whether we want to admit it or not."
    "Look, everything in Washington has been a lie. Weapons of mass destruction. Was a total lie. A way of attacking Iraq, which he thought was going to be easy and it turned out it was the exact opposite."
    "Everything is a lie. It is all a big lie."


Еще цитата:
    Now it's a breeding ground for terrorists. So, look, the war is a total catastrophe.
    BLITZER: Who do you blame?
    TRUMP: And they have a civil war going over there.
    BLITZER: Who do you blame?
    TRUMP: Well, there's only one person you can blame, and that's our current president. I mean, obviously Rumsfeld was a disaster, and other people that are giving him advice have been a disaster.
    ...
    BLITZER: How does the United States get out of this situation? Is there a way out?
    TRUMP: You know how they get out? They get out. That's how they get out. Declare victory and leave.


Ну вот. Обама вывел войска строго по плану предыдущей администрации, а не так, как предложил Трамп. А в речах этих деятелей Обама и развязал войну в Афганистане, и создал вакуум в Ираке, и вот теперь, с таким знанием недавних исторических реалий, они будут все это будут исправлять. Трампу 2007-го года я сочувствовала, сегодняшнему, который склоняется к тому, чтобы опять ввести туда войска ("We really have no choice. We have to knock out ISIS," he said. "I would listen to the generals, but I'm hearing numbers of 20,000 to 30,000.") -- нет.

It's that simple.
