Trump’s Syrian oil grab risks WW3 – Daniel McAdams

President Donald Trump has approved a wider plan to protect around 90 miles’ worth of oil fields in eastern Syria. Critics say the plan may be illegal without congressional approval. Daniel McAdams of the Ron Paul Institute joins Steve Malzberg (in for News.Views.Hughes) to weigh in. He thinks the plan amounts to theft and is “bone-headed.”

This guy must be working for oil companies

Hail Odin

The US produces enough oil and has enough oil reserves to last the US at least 20 years without needing any from any other nation and didn't they say the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan were about oil even though not a single drop of oil was ever taken from either country plus RT is Russia's propaganda machine

On Guard Venezuela the Commander and Thief has showen his true criminal intent. P.S This Pillage of Syrian Oil Resources is the High Crime you can Impeach Trump with.

Geez it sure was a strategic move to concoct those bogus 9/11 attacks – it is now enabling the T Rump to go and get the US' oil back so he can make/keep America great again – how come every other country continues to sit on their (collective) hands while the US schoolyard bully does what it likes? Oh yeah I keep forgetting the US owns everyone.

Strange. On those vehicle there were US flags instead of the black (buckaneers') flags with scull and bones.

It’s all about politics. And if a few million people should happen to suffer, that’s a price our politicians are willing to pay. It’s no skin off their corrupt asses at the end of the day.

If USA says god is 1 don’t believe it must be 2


So glad to see the comment section full of disdain for 'host' Steve Malzberg.

This deluded leftover clown from the RT’s conservative “Hughes” programme needs to watch or even RT or Ron Paul Inst. to get a better balance on international news…


"Is there such a thing?" Idiot.

We must de Israelized our government's foreign policy in the middle east.

Who the hell is this clown and how did he get a job hosting RT . I think he is way out of his league here . I am sure the staff at RT are wondering the same . What a superficial amateur.
This guy should be hosting an infomercial for toilet brushes not interviewing some one high caliber like Daniel McAdams . He probably even thinks Epstein did kill himself . what a loser

Neil Hallett

The US/CIA and ISIS are one and the same. The plan all along was to destroy Syria, steal the oil, provide space for israeli expansion. Repeated exposure as liars doesn't worry the war machine … they just continue. It's a challenge to the world every time "What are you gonna do about it?" It's a problem.

Jurgen Angler

A great Quote :
"We wouldn't be Happy if someone do it to us".
"We can't steal their oil, let them have what belong to them".

Eyob Ghirmay

Eyob Ghirmay

I thought for one moment that I was listening to MSNBC! Steve should work for them as he will easily spew their narrative for them. I tried, but I can’t watch him anymore.
