Trump: US will avoid getting involved in foreign wars

At Middleeasteye  -- 

US President-elect Donald Trump laid out a US military policy on Tuesday that would avoid interventions in foreign conflicts and instead focus heavily on defeating the Islamic State (IS) group.
In the latest stop on a "thank you" tour of states critical to his 8 November election win, Trump introduced his choice for defence secretary, General James Mattis, to a large crowd in North Carolina, near the Fort Bragg military base, which has deployed soldiers to 90 countries around the world.

"We will stop racing to topple foreign regimes that we know nothing about, that we shouldn't be involved with," Trump said. "Instead, our focus must be on defeating terrorism and destroying ISIS, and we will."
