internationalman | Probably the most objectionable thing I find about Hillary is her reckless promotion of war.
I think she advocated for just about every conflict the U.S. has gotten involved with in the past 30 years, most of which have been unmitigated disasters.
She’s an ardent supporter of arming the so-called moderate Syrian rebels and toppling Bashar Al-Assad.
She’s supported the regime change in Ukraine.
She backed the surge in Afghanistan, which, predictably, accomplished exactly nothing.
She was the deciding factor in pushing Bill to bomb Serbia in the 1990s.
She infamously voted for the 2003 Iraq invasion.
And, of course, she was one of the main pushers of the NATO intervention in Libya that toppled Muammar Gaddafi. After rebels gruesomely executed Gaddafi—they reportedly sodomized him with a bayonet—Hillary said on national TV, “We came, we saw, he died.” It’s sort of a sociopathic spin on “Veni, vidi, vici,” a famous saying from Julius Caesar, the Roman leader, which means “I came, I saw, I conquered.”
These are just some examples off the top of my head. She has apparently learned nothing—or the completely wrong lessons—from this trail of disasters. She’s an unrepentant warmonger. And I think the odds of WWIII breaking out will be much higher under a Hillary presidency.
One nugget from Hillary’s email scandal, known as the Blumenthal Memo, basically disclosed that the real reason NATO wanted to go after Gaddafi was not a desire to bring freedom, democracy and unicorns to the Libyan people, but because NATO feared that Gaddafi would use his vast gold reserves to back a currency that would displace a version of the French franc that is used in Central and Western Africa.
After NATO-backed rebels toppled Gaddafi, plans for the gold-backed currency, along with the gold itself, vanished like a double cheeseburger placed in front of Chris Christie.
Strangely, this damning piece of information from her emails barely gets a peep in the mass media narrative.
