"Hillary Clinton never met a war she didn't like." Michael Collins
JB: Welcome back to OpEdNews, Michael. Let's jump right in. What's your take on the primaries so far?
MC: Joan, it's a pleasure to talk with you today. The presidential primaries represent a choice between tragedy and real opportunity.
A Republican tragedy is guaranteed through the impending nomination of Donald Trump. The man is never wrong, even when everybody knows the truth. Worse than that, Trump stands up in front of volatile crowds and plays on their worst fears. He talks about punching protesters and then people get punched. He talks about ISIS being involved in protests against him to further incite his supporters against protesters. Personal filters and boundaries are completely alien to Mr. Trump.
This is something we've never seen before in a presidential campaign. With Trump as the Republican candidate, we will have months of this rhetoric more appropriate to a professional wrestling show than political discourse.
The Trump tragedy is guaranteed, win or lose. If he wins, we face the possibility that he might actually get elected. If he loses the nomination, the outcome will be just as tragic.
That tragedy presumes the likely Clinton nomination. An imploded Republican party with either Republican loyalists or Trump supporters sitting on the sidelines guarantees a Clinton victory. Let's look at the essence of her public record.
JB: What is your major concern with Hillary?
MC: She never met a war she didn't like. She voted for the Iraq invasion, the very worst foreign policy decision imaginable and the cause of over a million deaths. She either knew or should have known that the Bush White House lacked any real evidence to support the invasion. More recently, as Secretary of State under President Barack Obama, Clinton was instrumental in formulating and implementing the programs to oust Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi and the legitimate President of Syria, Bashar Al-Assad. Not one of these nations posed an imminent threat to the security of the United States and she knew it.
The current totals for lives lost in Libya and Syria as a result of the Clinton-supported chaos and mayhem is 100,000 people in Libya and 250,000 people in Syria. She didn't kill anyone with her own hands but her aggressive policies to create civil wars to oust Gaddafi and Assad destroyed the societies of the two nations and got a lot of people killed and injured. Libya is a failed state now. Syria has 11,000,000 displaced people with its infrastructure destroyed. I don't know exactly how many wars you need to support to acquire the label war monger but I am quite sure that war efforts with 350,000 dead in Libya and Syria meets the requirement.
To paraphrase the Bible, we shall know her by her works. Hillary Clinton is a dangerous leader. If elected president, she has the potential to ruin much more than two countries.
