Arab people have been trying to “drive them out” since 2011 revolutions

Trump’s homiletic to “Drive them out” is something the Arab peoples have been trying to do since 2011 with the monumental Arab uprisings. Trump & those gathered in Riyadh represent the alliance of forces that reversed those uprisings & are now trying to repress or bomb them to smithereens.

Defeats take time to recover from in conditions of repression as in Egypt & Bahrain & of carpet bombing as in Syria & Yemen. But if there was no opposition, there would be no repression, gulags, or bombing. Those who’ve long since written the obituaries or mocked the aspirations of the Arab peoples can put their cynicism where the sun don’t shine.
