No mine had nothing to do with parties.....mine had to do with US FP. Oh and Oil isn't our only interests.
So why deflect when it was clearly stated about actions initiated by those in the ME Monte? Actions and behaviors that that align them against us. Again, Monte.....Initiated by those in the ME.
Which means anything the US does.....is in response.
Note how you little issue about parties means nothing with this point. It just means other countries doing something to screw with us. Which none in either party would accept your way of Submission and don't stir up the natives, when it is response time.
