As Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton directly oversaw the overthrow of Libyan strongman Moammar Gadhafi via NATO bombing in support of al-Qaida-linked terror groups. This resulted in a failed state, the murder of hundreds of thousands (if not millions) of innocent Libyan citizens – including Christians — the rise of ISIS (and other terror organizations) and the Benghazi gun-running operation that resulted in the death of American Ambassador Christopher Stevens, U.S. Foreign Service operative Sean Smith, and CIA contractors Gen Doherty and Tyrone S. Woods.
“We came, we saw, he died,” she cackled, callously oblivious and impervious to the death, destruction and chaos she caused or the brutal and inhuman way in which Gadhafi was beaten, sodomized and summarily executed.
From there, Clinton oversaw the move to oust Syria’s Bashar Assad. This has resulted in a five-and-a-half-year civil war that has caused the death of hundreds of thousands of Syrians (including noncombatants and women and children), and a strengthened ISIS, more U.S. backing for al-Qaida-linked rebels, and a stronger Russian and Chinese alliance with Syria and Iran. And now she wants to kill more civilians.
In the last presidential “debate,” the Witch from Chappaqua restated her support for a U.S./NATO no-fly zone over Syria.
“So I, when I was secretary of state, advocated and I advocate today a no-fly zone and safe zones,” she said in response to a question from moderator Chris Wallace.
The U.S. is ostensibly fighting ISIS in Syria, but ISIS has no air force. So what is the purpose of a no-fly zone over Syria? It’s to oppose Russia’s and Syria’s use of aircraft in support of Assad.
Speaking to the Council on Foreign Relations on Tuesday, Director of National Intelligence said he’s “not a mind reader,” so he doesn’t know how Russia would react if the United States imposes a no-fly zone in Syria.
He went on to say:
But I do take seriously the very sophisticated air defense system and the air defense coverage that the Russians have. And I think– I wouldn’t put it past them to shoot down an American aircraft if they felt that was threatening to their forces on the ground. So, I take stock in the nature of the weaponry that they deploy and why they did that. The system they have there is a very advanced air defense system, it’s very capable. And I don’t think they’d do it — deploy it unless they had some intent to use it.
In September, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff General Joseph Francis Dunford told the Senate Armed Services Committee that a no-fly zone over Syria would lead to war with both Syria and Russia, intimating a dangerous process of military escalation.
Right now, Senator, for us to control all of the airspace in Syria it would require us to go to war, against Syria and Russia,… That’s a pretty fundamental decision that certainly I’m not going to make.
Nor would a no-fly zone be implemented under a Clinton presidency unless she “had some intent to use it.” But a no-fly zone is an act of war that would have devastating consequences.
According to text from a SHillary speech to a Goldman Sachs conference on June 4, 2013, as revealed by WikiLeaks, Clinton understands that but wants to do it anyway, and apparently doesn’t care that civilians will die.
To have a no fly zone you have to take out all of the air defense, many of which are located in populated areas. So our missiles, even if they are standoff missiles so we’re not putting our pilots at risk — you’re going to kill a lot of Syrians. So all of a sudden this intervention that people talk about so glibly becomes an American and NATO involvement where you take a lot of civilians.
So the Witch from Chappaqua has no empathy for the innocent “collateral damage” that will die in Syria as a result of her no-fly zone. Nor, apparently, does she have any empathy for the American people who will die when the U.S. retaliates for a Russian shoot-down of a U.S. or NATO plane enforcing the no-fly zone and Russia responds by initiating nuclear war on America.
Why would SHillary want to start a war with Russian when the U.S. military can’t even whip a ragtag bunch of untrained, Toyota-truck-driving, cave-dwelling barbarians? This makes her a sociopathic war criminal who should be indicted for murder and conspiracy to commit murder. She makes the George Bush/Dick Cheney war crimes pale by comparison.
