More Troubling Evidence That Hillary Clinton Will Start WW3

Submitted by Mike Krieger via Liberty Blitzkrieg blog,

Yesterday, I published a post warning readers about the increasingly dangerous situation on the ground in Syria, and detailed why a Hillary Clinton presidency will quickly usher in World War 3. Here it is in case you missed it: Is the Syrian War About to Experience a Major Escalation?

Meanwhile, the always excellent Glenn Greenwald published a piece at the Intercept which further proves the point. What follows are a few disturbing excerpts from his article, Hillary Clinton’s Likely Pentagon Chief Already Advocating for More Bombing and Intervention:

Michele Flournoy, the former Defense Department official whom Defense One calls “the woman expected to run the Pentagon under Hillary Clinton,” this week advocated for “sending more American troops into combat against ISIS and the Assad regime than the Obama administration has been willing to commit.” In an interview with that outlet, Flournoy “said she would direct U.S. troops to push President Bashar al-Assad’s forces out of southern Syria and would send more American boots to fight the Islamic State in the region.” She had previously “condemned the Obama administration’s ISIS policy as ineffectual,” denouncing it as “under-resourced.”

 

This week, Flournoy specifically advocated what she called “limited military coercion” to oust Assad. In August 2014, Obama announced what he called “limited airstrikes in Iraq” — and they’re still continuing almost two years later. Also note the clinical euphemism Flournoy created — “military coercion” — for creating a “no-bomb zone” that would entail “a declaratory policy backed up by the threat of force. ‘If you bomb the folks we support, we will retaliate using standoff means to destroy [Russian] proxy forces, or, in this case, Syrian assets,’” she said. Despite D.C. conventional wisdom that Obama is guilty of “inaction” in Syria, he has sent substantial aid, weapons, and training to Syrian rebels while repeatedly bombing ISIS targets in Syria.

No amount of war and destruction is never enough for these people.

Even U.S. military officials have said that these sorts of no-fly or no-bomb guarantees Flournoy is promising — which Hillary Clinton herself has previously advocated — would risk a military confrontation with Russia. Obama’s defense secretary, Ash Carter, told a Senate hearing last December that the policy Clinton advocates “would require ‘substantial’ ground forces and would put the U.S. military at risk of a direct confrontation with the Syrian regime and Russian forces.” Nonetheless, the Pentagon official highly likely to be Clinton’s defense secretary is clearly signaling their intention to proceed with escalated military action. The carnage in Syria is horrifying, but no rational person should think that U.S. military action will be designed to “help Syrians.”

 

But the fact that Hillary Clinton has a history of advocating more war and killing and support for heinous regimes and occupations is the one thing Democratic pundits have, with remarkable message discipline, completely ignored. From Bernie Bros to Sanders’ Secret Service costs to Hillary’s kick-ass, mic-droppingslay-queen tweets, they’ve invented the most embarrassingly childish and trivial distractions to ensure they don’t have to talk about it. But now Clinton’s almost-certain defense secretary is already — months before she’s in power — expressly advocating more war and bombing and dangerous interventions. That makes the costs of a Clinton foreign policy — at least for those who assign any value to lives outside of American soil — much harder, and more shameful, to ignore.

So are you ready?

Hillary's Neocon handlers are as stupid as they are ambitious and she is some form of addled, but dangerous, hag.

If she can cause a refugee tsunami that led to Brexit and will lead to the eventual collapse of the EU while a mere secretary of state?

As an Alinskyite president of a nuclear armed USA, Hillary will dwarf the body count of any prior national leader.

Flournoy is a remarkable woman. Her guiding philosophy is that you should not let past experience influence your thinking because it might cause you to limit future actions.

Under this doctrine Vietnam, Iraq, Afghanistan, and Libya can be stuffed down the memory hole and the war party will be freed to do stupid shit over and over forever.

People who argue that one should learn from past mistakes are easily sidelined because they seek to limit Imperial power.

On the other hand, you can learn from past successes. For example, since Russia "backed down" in the Cuban missile crisis, it can be extrapolated that if you take them to the brink of nuclear war, they will back down. Of course this hypothesis does not consider what happens if the Russians say fuck you, and it does not acknowledge that the Russians put the missiles in Cuba as a gambit to get Washington to pull its Missiles out of Turkey.

So on Election Day, please remember that Hillary has surrounded herself with Imperialist idealoiges and will probably get you and your family killed.

Both Clinton and Trump know precisely what their voters want - more wars. Wars in the Mid East, wars against the Hispanics, war among themselves (or are 1,600 police killings in 3 years not testimony enough?). 320 million morons have guns under their bed, always ready to contribute to the annual death toll of more than 10,000 fatalities or to put a few more idiots behind bars to add to the 3 mil who are already locked up.

 

Enjoy.

Putin will not wait until the party congress to announce the Doomsday Device.

I had a Negro Flournoy cause me some problems in the Fleet (conduct case - non support of dependents); and more recently, here in SoCal Los Angeles. 

He apparently was participating in the stalking and harassing my Person and any Lawyers I Contacted.  Quite a few Negroes were evicted, claiming to be helping the Flournoys.  Funny thing is, he died a few years ago - his death announced on the Ship's FB Page.  No one has yet to give me the details, so I can go after him (press charges, etc. posthumously) and his buddies.  

 

As for Madame Secretary's Aide, this is her "Education and Early Career" from Wikipedia:
She has a bachelor of arts degree in social studies from Harvard University. She received an M.Litt. in international relations in 1983 from Oxford University, where she was a Newton-Tatum scholar at Balliol College. From 1989 until 1993 she was at Harvard's John F. Kennedy School of Government, where she was a Research Fellow in its International Security Program.[

This iwas before her token appt as a WH Political Apporintee Staffer for a few years - then, presto change-o, Career Bureaucrat in Charge of NATIONAL SECURITY MATTERS. 

She had NO PRACTICAL EXPERIENCE in this Field.  Guess a Degree in SOCIAL STUDIES and a stint at the JFK School of Govt is all it takes to help steer a Nation-State into the Ground.

So FUBAR'd

Killary is dead bolted in as POTUS.

Inauguration Day would be an excellent day for Putin to save himself a lot of future headaches and send The White House a housewarming gift via Granite cruise missile. ... He could probably catch all of the diva demons and winged monkeys near the nest.

It would be sort of an international pest control operation.
