He continued, “It doesn’t mean we have the blow up the Middle East in order to condemn this kind of behavior.”
Kennedy explained, “There are three power centers in the Middle East: Turkey, Saudi Arabia and Iran.
They are all jockeying to get the upper hand in the Middle East.
Well, fine, if you want to have a powder keg and the Middle East blow up.
We get to the point where we don’t have any relationships with any of the three and one of them gains the upper hand, you’ll have war in the Middle East and you’ll have a nuclear war because Israel is not going to sit there and watch the country be overrun.”
