We have tried not to take sides in the US Primaries campaigns to choose the parties' candidates in November's presidential election. We British get rather irate when Barack Obama or John Kerry starts lecturing us on how we should stay in the EU because while it may be in Washington's best interests for Britain to be in the EU, most of us feel it is not in the best interests of the British people.
We that in mind, it is perfectly understandable that U.S. voters get annoyed when British liberals start saying "You must not vote for Donald Trump, or voices from Britain's right say "You must not vote for Bernie Sanders. So, because this is a world news blog we have tried to report on Sanders and Trump from the perspective of amused onlookers watching the panic these two mavericks are causing for the political and media establishment.
The candidate we do make an exception on however is the truly horrifying Hillary Clinton. We have no compunction about lobbying against Hillary as responsible citizens of the world who put the interests of people in the USA, Europe and the third world, especially the third world because they struggle to take care of themselves, ahead of the interests of a global wealthy elite who profit from war and are quite prepared to use financial muscle to make sure corporate profit wins out over public interest.
So US voters, vote for who you like, but be warned about what you and the rest of the world are in for if this awful woman becomes your president.
A new in-depth report from The New York Times damns former Secretary of State to perdition for her role in committing the US government’s to involvement in the war in Libya. Previous reports show Clinton leading the push for the USA to enter what was a small, local war and overthrow former Libyan Leader Muammar Gaddafi, but this report with on-the-record comments numerous current and former Obama Administration officials offers a line by line account of how Hillary nagged Obama into getting involved.
The most prominent name cited is that of former Secretary of Defense Robert Gates, who claimed that the decision to go to war in Libya was heavily influenced by Clinton. Gates says her input made the difference in a “51-49” decision that ultimately destroyed Libya, turning what had been Africa's most prosperous and civilised nation into a failed state with no coherent government, and allowed ISIS to gain a foothold in Africa.
The analysis supports the view that Hillary Clinton learned nothing from the Iraq War debacle. According to the NYT, “The lessons of the Libya experience have not tempered her more aggressive approach to international relations.”
Who can forget Hillary's infamous quote on the ignominious death of Gaddafi, "We came, we saw, he died". It is a sentence that exposes what a first crass bitch she is. Make no mistake, Hillary Clinton is the war candidate in 2016.
Another part of the report claims that after a meeting with Westernized Libyan exiles in what appears to be an eerie parallel to the Ahmed Chalabi con, Clinton became convinced that Libya could become a thriving democracy if Gaddafi was overthrown. She then worked tirelessly to ensure the US jumped into the war, pushing back against then-Defense Secretary Gates, National Security Advisor Tom Dolan, and Vice President Joe Biden, who wanted to stay out of the conflict. Hillary was obsessed with the idea of bombing the small nation (pop 5,000,000) which she probably thought was an easy win for the USA with allies France and the UK (the FUKUS axis) after the Bush era debacles of Iraq and Afghanistan.
Gates even recalled telling President Barack Obama and others in on the Libya meetings that he and the Pentagon had more than enough responsibilities with the Iraq and Afghanistan missions, saying, “I think at one point I said, ‘Can I finish the two wars I’m already in before you guys go looking for a third one?’”
The answer was no, Hillary had OCD about war and bombing third world counties. Though there was no solid intelligence on what exactly Gaddafi would or would not do regarding the opposition, then-Secretary Clinton began aggressively lobbying other countries to support the war effort and help the rebels in Libya. Another Vietnam style quagmire quickly followed in Syria of course, and that trigger another flare up of hostilities in Iraq where the USA had been engaged for ten years when Libya kicked off.
