‘We’re liberators, not pirates’: Sean Parnell not on board with Donald Trump’s ‘take the oil’ strategy

Admittedly, a half-hour per candidate wasn’t nearly enough time for Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton to address questions of both host Matt Lauer and audience members at NBC News’ Commander-in-Chief Forum Wednesday night.

Donald Trump might have frustrated viewers by not detailing his plan to defeat ISIS (so as not to broadcast his strategy to the enemy, he explained); however, he was clear about his belief that ISIS would never have arisen without substantial oil resources. One part of his plan that he didn’t hesitate to share then, was to “take the oil.”

That’s probably more difficult than it sounds. Trump’s statement didn’t exactly win over critics.

We’ll give the final word to author and wounded veteran Sean Parnell, who isn’t asking how we’d take the oil, but if it’s the right thing to do.
