22. What oil?

Not every Mideast country has oil. Syria has almost no oil production. Russia is the top oil producer in the world.

Russia wants a presence in Syria because it has a naval base and an air force base. Russia is going to keep those no matter what.

We should be out of Mideast countries. We have done no good there. We messed up Iraq and Syria is no different.
