Pompeo in Cairo: US Backs Israel’s Efforts to ‘Stop Tehran From Turning Syria Into the Next Lebanon’

In his speech in Egypt on Thursday in which he assailed the Middle East policies of former US President Barack Obama, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo reiterated America’s backing of Israel’s efforts to counter Iran in the region.

“The United States fully supports Israel’s right to defend itself against the Iranian regime’s aggressive adventurism,” Pompeo said in his remarks at the American University in Cairo. “We will continue to ensure that Israel has the military capacity to do so decisively.”

Along these lines, he further voiced assent to Israel’s drive to prevent the Tehran regime “from turning Syria into the next Lebanon.”

Regarding Lebanon itself, Pompeo continued, “the United States will work to reduce the threat of Hezbollah’s missile arsenal, which is aimed at Israel and can reach all points inside of that country.”

Never mind the state it's in as I tidy everything up prior to publication. Don't let good material go to waste - and so much does. In the interests of the environment we should always try to re-cycle everything, especially jokes. You know that makes sense! You may find some historical stuff here, but this does not really matter as humor is fairly timeless.
