UPDATE Trump Interview with Steve Hilton:
“Well, I’m the one that talks about these wars that are 19 years (long), and people are just there. And don’t kid yourself, you do have a military industrial complex. They do like war,” Trump said in his interview with Fox News’s Steve Hilton.
“You know, In Syria with the caliphate, so I wipe out 100% of the caliphate that doesn’t mean you’re not going to have these crazy people going around, blowing up stores and blowing up things, these are seriously ill people…But I wiped out 100 percent of the caliphate,” Trump continued. “I said, I want to bring our troops back home — the place went crazy. They want to keep– you have people here in Washington, they never want to leave. I said, you know what I’ll do, I’ll leave a couple hundred soldiers behind, but if it was up to them they’d bring thousands of soldiers in.”
Trump added, “someday people will explain it, but you do have a group, and they call it the military-industrial complex.”
“They never want to leave, they always want to fight. No. I don’t want to fight, but you do have situations like Iran. You can’t let them have nuclear weapons. You just can’t let that happen,” Trump said.

Our Founding Fathers wanted America to avoid foreign entanglements.
Since the Federal Reserve took control in 1913, we’ve had way too many entanglements and war. The United States became the world’s policeman and by doing so we often ended up making things worse. Ron Paul called it ‘blowback.’ World War II may not have been necessary if President Wilson had kept us out of World War I as promised, but the central bankers wanted war.

Now that the globalist bankers and Deep State are threatened by our long-overdue push back, they will distract America with false flags, division, entanglements, and war. It’s my fervent hope that President Trump can avoid war—any war. We don’t need a war with Iran. We don’t need to go to war in Venezuela or anywhere else in the world. We should let those countries solve their own problems. We have enough problems at home.
We know both Pompeo and Bolton are war hawks. They are probably recommending war to Trump at every turn. Only they’re probably calling it ‘action,’ ‘engagement’ or an ‘operation.’
So far, Trump is resisting such counsel. Maybe he wants them around—such men have use as a fear tactic. I hope Trump is using them for psychological reasons because more war is the last thing our country needs due to the resulting blowback.
I hope Trump will take Ron Paul’s advice and avoid war.
