“It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to realise why Hillary Clinton’s hawkish foreign policy might be a problem when it comes to women’s rights. Unless you believe that the lives of women elsewhere don’t matter, or that the president of the USA doesn’t affect them, if Clinton wins the next election her foreign policy will affect millions around the globe. Clinton has been one of the most warmongering US politicians of recent times and is proud about her record.”
In March 2011, Clinton supported the NATO attacks on Libya to aid rebels in their attempts to overthrow Moammar Gadhafi, which … led to Libya becoming the failed state that it is today. After becoming Secretary of State in 2009, Clinton supported Obama’s decision to send an additional 21,000 troops into Afghanistan. The secretary then supported greater contact with Free Syrian Army rebels in Syria and wanted to arm them. Clinton supported Israel’s attacks on Gaza last summer, which killed over 2,300 people and left almost 500,000 displaced. ~Hillary ignored human rights in favor of corporate hegemony.
After 50 days of the Gaza conflict, more than 2,100 people were killed, most of them civilians, including about 500 children.
“Anyone who condones war crimes by Obama has lost sight of reality.
Barack Obama is officially a war criminal:
“Unprovoked military aggression is a war crime under international law. That is completely clear. There are no ifs or buts about it.” http://www.Peaceresource.org
“Chomsky is not anti-American, and not always critical of America, but he plays that turf enough to sell books and excite his fan base. His intellect gives him a pass that most would not have the luxury otherwise. To his credit, he is genuinely brilliant, and not a moronic demagogue like Limbaugh or Beck. Still, he is a one-trick pony, no matter how eloquent and pointed his arguments.”
Rice sanctioned the use of torture and has continued to defend it even after a top aide warned that she and her colleagues were violating the law.
“Foreign companies would have “preferred status” – granting them greater rights within our borders than our own companies enjoy. U.S. companies would have more incentives to offshore jobs and foreign companies would not be bound by the minimum wage and could sue the U.S. if our health, safety, or environmental regulations interfered with their profits. Jurisdiction over such suits would rest not in the hands of elected officials or judges, but with an international business tribunal. Their decisions, which would be binding upon all member nations, would supersede our own laws – including our Constitution.”
Macroeconomics, deep-pocket geopolitical actors, and economic warfare wrapped in jingoism will bankrupt America and cripple the planet. Word.
