Trump should allow Saudis

to pay for their own wars


Re: “Oil prices surge as attack on Saudi facility disrupts output” (Eastbaytimes.com, Sept. 15):


Even liberals could see one reason to prefer Donald Trump to Hillary Clinton: her gung-ho foreign policy. Now we shall see if, freed of John Bolton as national security adviser, the president is in fact capable of exercising restraint.


Saudi Arabia’s oil business has suffered a blow. What should be our response? Why, indifference! This is the country whose festering religion brought us 9/11, and in whose embassy was butchered a respected columnist for the Washington Post.


No, whatever his motive, the Saudis should pay for their own wars. This is a time for Mr. Trump to insist to his cabinet that American forces stay put.
