The Trump administration signed a historic normalization agreement at the White House with the Bahrain, Israel, and United Arab Emirates on September 15, 2020.
In almost predictable fashion, the media has ignored if not flat out downplayed the significance of such a deal. This is similar to how the media went on a doomsday fit when the Trump administration recognized Jerusalem as Israel’s capital in 2018.
The Washington Free Beacon reported on former Secretary of State John Kerry declaring in 2019 that the recognition of Jerusalem would prevent peace efforts in the Middle East or spur further violence in the region. Despite this, the UAE and Bahrain still signed on to the normalization deal. Despite the accomplishment, the media is back to its usual Wuhan virus fear-mongering and attacking Trump for failing to contain the virus.
President Donald Trump and Israeli prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu are of the opinion that other Arab nations will join the UAE and Bahrain in normalizing relations with Israel. This is at a time when Iran is quickly emerging as a regional power and is prompting Middle Eastern countries to form a balancing coalition against it.
“We have many nations ready to follow” and normalize relations with Israel, Trump commented. He added that “at least five or six countries coming along very quickly.”
According to Breitbart News, Oman is likely to be the next Arab country to normalize its relations with Israel.
These latest diplomatic accomplishments show the Trump administration’s willingness to use smart diplomacy to bring about proactive solutions in violence-ridden regions of the world.
This lies in stark contrast to his defense industry beholden predecessors who impulsively turned to nation-building and intervention.
The next step would be for the Trump administration to finally purge his administration of residual neoconservative/neoliberal influences and staff it with solid America First conservatives such as Douglas Macgregor to make his vision of foreign policy restraint a reality.
Like the peace deals, such a move would make the media go nuts. And that’s a great thing for America.
Locked and Loaded: Pentagon Grants Soldiers in DC Power to use Lethal Force
The National Guard have been authorized to use lethal force, if needed.
Army Secretary Ryan McCarthy has authorized the twenty thousand National Guard members providing security around the U.S. Capitol to carry lethal weapons as Washington, D.C., braces for Inauguration Day.
“On January 12, 2021, National Guardsmen were given authorization to be armed in support of the U.S. Capitol Police to protect the U.S. Capitol and individual members of Congress and their staff,” according to a statement from the D.C. National Guard, which is commanding Guard forces in the city, including units deployed from six other states, to provide security for President-elect Joe Biden’s inauguration next week,” the DC National Guard revealed in a statement “This was requested by federal authorities and authorized by the Secretary of the Army.”
The National Guard Bureau declined to specify what weapons troops would carry.
“National Guard members are postured to meet the requirements of the supported civil authorities, up to and including protective equipment and being armed if necessary,” said the statement. “The public’s safety is our top priority.”
Gen. Daniel R. Hokanson, chief of the National Guard Bureau, told media members on Monday that a force of up to 15,000 will deploy to D.C. with all their issued equipment, including their individual weapons. So if the need arises, “they are close by and they are readily accessible.”
The Pentagon initially authorized up to six thousand two hundred Guard members from Maryland, Virginia, New York, New Jersey, Delaware and Pennsylvania to deploy to D.C. on federal status to maintain security through Inauguration Day.
The history of National Guard members being a part of the presidential inauguration dates back to the first inauguration of President George Washington in 1789.
