The Los Angeles Times yesterday carried a story on Hillary Clinton’s new policy to answer questions from her audience during campaign stops. Unfortunately for information seekers throughout the nation, Mrs. Clinton, as historic defender of the Neo-Cons’ War on Terror, wound up canning audience participation as quickly as it had begun.
Well, in all respect, duh, Hillary. Did you actually think you were going to be lobbed soft ball questions? Did you seriously think you were going to be asked exactly how does a self-respecting woman stand by her man after such embarrassingly messy, uh, indiscretions? I mean, Hillary, Honey, can we talk here for a moment, girl to… um, girl? Hillary, Sweetie, did you actually think that Iowa – or anyone in America for that matter -wants to hear your opinion on banning cigarette smoking in the Big Apple, or precisely how many villagers it takes to raise a child?
Apparently, the New York Senator’s campaign manager must have observed, much to her chagrin, that questions from America’s increasingly disillusioned populace do nothing whatsoever to boost the popularity of a presidential candidate married to a randy dude whose greatest crimes against humanity have absolutely nothing whatsoever to do with a stained blue dress.
After being reportedly asked questions on education, the cost of the Iraq war, and so-called “Depleted” Uranium, Clinton reportedly made a quick turn around on her campaign strategy and took no further questions from the audience during later stops.
I have no idea what that gutsy Iowan asked Senator Clinton about Depleted Uranium. Call it just a wild guess, but perhaps the former First Lady didn’t have a clue how to field questions on her prospective First Man’s involvement with the US military’s illegal Depleted Uranium use in the Balkans during his two-term stint as Genocider-In-Chief?
Now of course we can only surmise what Depleted Uranium inquiry was posed by one of the 3,228 good people of Story City, Iowa. But undoubtedly, whatever was asked must have been one doozy of a question… one that would, in fact, make the next military Commander-hopeful do an about-face on responding to future audience members’ questions in such a gosh darn hurry.
Until I hear from someone present during the Iowa audience’s apparently too-candid public chat with Hillary, I guess we’ll never really know whether someone ever did bring up the inconvenient little fact that during the male Clinton’s administration’s promiscuous romps, his own military was having its own “indiscriminate” effects – waged with horrific public health implications for NATO troops and Yugoslavian civilians alike.
Or maybe the question was a bit more difficult? Maybe a well-read somebody or other dared to ask Madame Clinton how she felt about deadly Plutonium 239 and 240, discovered by the United Nations in spent Uranium munitions rounds in Kosovo, approved as A-OK for use in US [NATO] weapons by her questionably “better” half?
Then again, we can only wager a guess whether or not she would go from there to defend Slick Willy’s use of the hot, dirty Uranium gas arsenal in the the 1995 NATO (i.e., US military) radioactive bombing of Bosnia and Herzegovina, appropriately named Operation Deliberate Force, as well as the devastating 1999 bombing campaign of Kosovo.
Is it possible that someone in Iowa had the audacity to speak out loud about the Depleted Uranium casualties of innocent European civilians and the eternal radioactive contamination of the former Yugoslavia’s environment?
Do you think that maybe even someone could have mentioned the little-known fact that, under her betrothed’s watch, in 1995 the US military fired approximately 10,000 rounds of DU munitions during the US-assisted battle in Serbia? Or perhaps some ballsy audience member had done her homework in Story City and mentioned publicly that, while Hill and Bill were living under the same roof in that big white house, the US military fired over 31,000 rounds of just one type of DU munitions alone during one hundred missions into Kosovo and Serbia?
Or it could very well be that somebody had the chutzpah to ask Mrs. Clinton if she wished to carry on the traditional “male” role as US President-As-War-Maker, similar to the one carried out by hubby during his extended gig in the big mansion of white? And who even really knows what future deals were made behind closed doors during what appears to be eight long [apparently lonely] years together on Pennsylvania Ave? Maybe there’s even some kind of bizarre and twisted marital competition going on as to which one can claim waging more lethal, un-official wars?
Despite the fact that what sometimes only masquerades as the gentler sex may wear a skirt as “cover,” perhaps the human appearing in female form with the initials HRC has an undeclared lust driving her, too… one that motivates her to carry on the long-standing legacy of the patriarchal, traditionally aggressive, masculine role of waging pre-emptive, genocidal wars, via weapons considered illegal under international law.
Oh what a story indeed a fly on the wall yesterday in Story City, Iowa could tell! And while the question posed out in public on the issue of Depleted Uranium may forever remain only a guess by anyone not present during that particular Presidential campaign stop? One can rest assured that the answer given to any Depleted Uranium question had, in all certainty, nothing whatsoever to do with what happened under Mr. Clinton’s administrative reign during a time in US history when, officially, no wars were ever waged.
