Maybe you weren’t paying much attention to the contents of the president’s recent address to the United Nations, but you should’ve been! Check out his stated explanation of American policy toward the Middle East:
“The United States is prepared to use all elements of our power, and that includes military force, to secure our core interests in the region. …We will ensure the free-flow of energy from the region to the world.”
…Anyone care to comment on this rather audacious admission??
